Default pt cruiser 2005 auto repair manual - (A/C Heater)

Got a 2005 PT. In the past weeks the a/c progressively got warmer and finally wasn't able to blow cold wind at all. Tried some r134 and put some in, but it was already topped off. What it did was blew the excess pressure relief valve on the bottom. The coolant become bloated.

My auto has undergone diagnostic and according to the mechanic the radiator/a/c fan wasn't working, and that is why it blows warm air. They wanted $550 for the job, so I bought the fan myself for $100 and put it in in 1 hour. Easy job. However- the a/c still doesn't blow cold. Tried to look for haynes but it seems to be useless. Are there any auto repair manuals that could work to got this issue fixed? Any suggestions? Thanks!

I take it your not overheating at all? Are you sure the compressor is cycling on and off, have you heard it click on and then go off, the engine speed at idle should raise about 100 rpm's when the compressor comes on and drop down again when it goes off. Just stand in front of the open hood at idle and turn the engine and A/C on to here it working.
