Or maybe you should refill the 'chlorofluorocarbon'. I do not know, how you call it in England, but here, we call it that thing as a coolant in the A/C.

And in addition to this, if there is no left of it your A/C, A/C shouldn't cool at all.

Yes that's right - CFC or commonly called refrigerant. I think the blend used in the civic is R134a. Could be that the air con is not working properly due to low pressure (leak) or total loss. If the pressure switch isn't made then the compressor won't run.
