    So one day my ac just decided to get really hot. like the whole ac panel is hot and it’s blowing out hot air. I tried recharging my ac my self with the freon and a pressure gauge, but it made no difference please help!!

    Is the compressor turning on? Can be verified by the clutch engaging on the compressor in the engine bay when ac is turned on

    Do you have A/C gage's to check and see if there is a block in the system or if it's just low
    Do not just add freon you will damage the system if over filled

    Your gauge will tell you what's going on
    If the gauge is equal psi block or restriction
    Or if just low on refrigerant

    When i first put the gauge on the pressure was too high and was popping it right back off.. so I removed all pressure and now it’s sitting in the green.

    What do you mean, you removed all pressure ? How did you remove the pressure ? And by it’s sitting in the green, you mean on the can of refrigerant, like Pro AC or whatever you are using to charge it ?

    Can you include a picture of the gauge that you are using ? And maybe a picture of the line that you are tapped into ?
