Default 1997 ford mustang a/c problems

okay, the a/c system is complete, has a new oriface tube and low pressure line, the only leaks are when the black plastic caps for the high side/low side bleed valves are removed. when i put a small can of r134a in, the compressor will turn on for just a sec and the system is in the red on the pressure gauge. should i check the condensor coil and evap canister, or are there any other troubleshooting steps i need to check? sorry, i'm just use to putting r134a in and it being good. i need to get this fixed so i can sell the car and put food on the table..thanks for the help

the clutch won't grab till there's a certain amount of freon in the system, just speaking from my own personal experiance. the system is completly empty when i add freon, i've had to do some repairs to the engine that required evacuating the a/c system so everytime i charge the system it's completely empty and i'm putting in fresh freon, and the compressor only kicks in for a second then shuts off, then back on again for another second about a min later. i've tried blowing through the line and it's somewhat restricted..should it be that way or is there possibly some blockage? the tube that houses the oriface and the oriface itself is brand new

The oriface tube is a restrictor. So yes, it should be kinda hard to blow through it.

Do you have mechanical or electric fans?

If electric is it spinning?

Are you putting the correct amount of freon into it?

1/2 a small can you say ! Good chance you have a restriction in your lines or a fitting, and I don't know if the same applys to cars as house ac's but once you evacuate your system you need to vacuum it down and itll take all moisture out of the lines!

may be a bad relay or a bad ac compressor altogether. The clutch will not kick on if its that low when ur adding freon, but once it has enough in it, it should stay spinning (while the settings are on high) while adding the freon, your gauge aint bad.

you are correct, once the system is evacuated, the ideal method is to pull vacuum and do a leak test, and then fully charge it.
