Hello Scotty, my name is Keegan and enjoy watching your videos! I bought a 1992 Honda Civic DX about 2 years ago with no A/C working. So, over the past couple months I have bought these parts for the A/C system as follows: A/C Compressor, Condenser, Evaporator, Accumulator, Expansion Valve, and the small valves inside the High and Low service ports. Then, I took it to a mechanic to vacuum and recharge the system after putting on all those parts mentioned. The A/C blew cold for about a week, then started blowing hot again. Also the A/C Compressor's clutch does still engage when I turn the A/C on. What else could be the problem/what else should be replaced? I have pretty much bought a whole new A/C system and still no luck. Thanks!

Sorry I forgot to mention this in my first post, but also the mechanic said something about when I rev the engine up to high rpms, on his gauges he sees negative 30 pressure or something along those lines and the discharge line gets very hot. Is any of this normal to you? If not, what problem could any of this indicate? Thanks Scotty!

For some reason when the mechanic hooked it up to a machine it came back as having no leaks. Could the machine have possibly not detected a small leak? And most likely would the leak be on one of the A/C lines/hoses?

odds are it has a leak somewhere. Test for leaks using UV dye first
