She said it was half a pound low which we both felt would not be enough to prevent the compressor from engaging.
Without a running compressor they cant top it up or add dye to check for leaks. I do have a sniffer which did not yield any results.
They did not scan for codes and they did not bypass the control panel so yes, we are speculating which is why Im not running out to grab a replacement.
In fairness to them, they are an old school AC only shop. They rebuild compressors, make and repair hoses etc. Diving in to anything outside the AC system is not their favorite hobby. They were nice enough not to charge me.
Based on the fuse card #25 was missing (5A) so I added one. Since it would have been missing since Ive owned it that doesnt seem to be a likely culprit but I havent driven it yet.
