Once i put it in the pressure would jump up immediately, I thought it took alittle more than that for the pressure to go up.
The AC compressor is kicking in but i dont know if it is working
Just to be sure...You added R-134a right?
I don't even think you can get R-12 anymore. But ya never know...some people have it laying around still.
It'* going to read high when you're charging until the compressor starts cycling...then that should be your true system pressure. How much did you put in? IIRC it'* like 2.2lbs is what these cars require. At least on my 95. If I were you....Buy a leak dye kit for it. I got mine at the local parts store....Comes with a lil UV light and everything. Best to do that in the evening and then shine the UV light around and look for leaks. Also I would check and see how bad the face of your condensor is, and make sure none of the tubes are junk in the middle.
Do you get any condensation when the A/C is on full blast at 60*?
