AC Problem Diagnosis
Ran across this today, thought it might help someone else.
Using a pressure gauge on both the low and high side, you may be able to determine the cause of the AC not working properly.
This is not an "be all - end all" tool to determine the root cause. But could steer you in the right direction to make your diagnosis efforts a little more meaningful.
Better than just taking a stab in the dark.
