Q: Q: AC not blowing cold

asked by on

I live in Louisiana. It is 80 degrees at 5:00am. left for work at 5am and the ac was blowing cold and was working and blowing fine the whole way, about a 30 min. drive. Left work at 2:30 that afternoon and the AC was blowing strong but, not cool. Hot even. The compressor sounds like it is coming on so I bought and tried using the canned 134A. No change. Any ideas?
