When you do your own car ac repair, there are a few things you need to start with. Here, Bruce Bonebrake shows you how to diagnose problems with your car air conditioning, whether it's in the cabin or something under the hood.
How to Properly Recharge Your AC System
Recharge your AC system properly. I go though all of the steps on how to safely recharge your air conditioning system with refrigerant. First you need to evacuate the system, then pull a vacuum, and then add the correct amount of refrigerant based on weight.

Automotive HVAC Pressure Diagnostics
Automotive HVAC Pressure Diagnostics... LINKS: http://www.autodiagnosticsandpublishing.com/TransTS.html http://www.autodiagnosticsandpublishing.com/CBT_Auto_Traning.htm Pressure analysis diagnostics is the cornerstone of properly doing a climate control system assessment. As we all know, the HVAC systems is composed of a high and a low pressure side. The orifice tube or expansion valve is the one components in between these two refrigerant conduits. The compressor of course is the one in charge of pressurizing the refrigerant. Pressure analysis is by far the best, and probably in many cases, the only way to properly diagnose the dozens of specific issues with the automotive HVAC system. But first, here are the various scenarios relating to pressure analysis. Before we go into it, it is important to understand what the baseline pressures should be. The normal HVAC baseline is about 39 PSI on the Low-Side, and about 250 PSI on the High-Side. How far away we deviate from this baseline, is what's going to determine our issue. Here are the different analysis scenarios. Case 1... High pressure on the Low Side and baseline pressure on the high side. This may translate to say about ...

How To Recharge an AC System - EricTheCarGuy
This video can show you the basics of recharging an AC system. I would urge you perform safe practices when working with AC and avoid venting refrigerant into the atmosphere. That said, with a little time and patients, you may be able to recharge your AC system yourself.
