Default Whats wrong with my a/c?

I put some freon in my car, one of the tall cans. It was blowing out cold, but not as cold as it normally does. I put one of the smaller cans of freon in there and it doesn't blow out cold at all now. Its not any water dripping like it was before. The compressor kicks on and the motor bogs down a little like it normally does. What could be wrong?

take your car in and have them leak check the system. cuse it sounds like your leaking freon. the shop should recharge your a/c system but they should also put a dye in it so they can check and see where it's leaking from

I went and talke to a guy at a shop and made an appointment to drop it off on Wed. I was hoping it would be something small that I could fix myself. lol.

When I put the freon in it had a guage on it but the guage on it was not going up and the can didn't get cold the second time I put some in.

the compressor will still kick on because the car doesn't know that it's out of freon

Its no big deal. The compressor being broken is probably the worst case scenario, but that's only $130 and I can install it myself. I'm still hoping its something small though. I'm glad I have other cars to drive with a/c cause its hot as balls today!
