Question: if we tell you that your mom's boyfriend probably overcharged the compressor and it can either be OK as it spits the overcharge out the bottom of the compressor through a pressure relief valve to stop itself from blowing up or he way overdid it and you need a new compressor, what will you do if you can't afford a mechanic? It needs to be taken to a professional to check it out and get the right levels of R134a into it to see if the compressor is still working.

Note to self : Do not let mom's boyfriend work on car. Hopefully he just overfilled it. If not then the boyfriend should be paying for repairs.
