Air con hissing?
This morning I had my aircon serviced. Ever since I my Civic, the air con hasn't worked (the compressor never got engaged).
The aircon specialist did a vacuum test, and it showed no signs of leaks, so they filled up the aircon gas. However, a few hours later, whenever it is on, there seems to be a constant hiss coming from the vents, and to me, I wouldn't describe the A/C as being ice cold.
I'm not sure if it's just because the Honda Civic A/C isn't ice-cold, or if there is something wrong with my aircon. If so - if the vacuum test suggested there was no leaks, any idea's what it could be? They injected a UV dye so will eventually go back.
The compressor is definitely clicking when I turn on the A/C. I even at one point tried to change the relay as I heard it was common (although being the cheap-skate I am, just replaced it with another Omron one).
Not too good with cars in general, so just thought I'd ask if it could be something common?
