EDIT: I just re-read my earlier post. I did come across as bitchy... For what it's worth, I apologize for that. It's been a long, very bad day (I won't bore you with the details here), and I shouldn't have been so damned grouchy with you for it, it's not your fault.
No problem, we all have :poo: days. I think we might have scared another one off though.

Hell, sometimes that happens without an argument... and sometimes Mike does it... and sometimes... :SN: as a whole does it, we're kind of intimidating as a group sometimes.

Hopefully @1995Beast comes back though. :doh:
This place is pretty laid back compared to most places. I went out and looked at the compressor today, and there is a place to screw a valve into it, but you're probably right, he was checking the low side, and the gauge was either very innacurate, or there is a blockage. If you get a bunch of moisture or way too much oil, and it can do that. Sometimes it's better to go have a pro look at it, but there's a danger in that. They've got your car, it's too easy, and suddenly you give in to a $1000 AC job.
