Default A/c just stopped!!!

3 days ago i replaced my a/c compressor, dryer, expansion valve, flushed the evap., and condensor, took the truck to local mech. Shop and had vac. Pulled down and new pag oil and freon added. Yesterday a/c started blowing ambient temp. Air. The clutch is spinning with the compressor, a/c lights on the dash work, fuses are good and i can swap to heat and it blows hot air then. Any ideas what the problem could be??

Possibly a leak and all your coolant has escaped. I'd pressure test the system.

I used a screwdriver to see if any freon came out, got some out of the hi side, and i also tried to add a can just in case there was a leak, the system would not take the freon

Well i took the truck back to the local mechanic and he checked my truck out, found the seals had blown out of the new compressor i had just installed : (!!! Thankfully napa replaced the reman compressor with a brand new one, a/c works great again !!

Boy Napa seems to have a problem with their remanufactured parts blowing seals! I went through 3 power steering pumps and now 8,000 miles later, I have to replace the pump again. Will not use a reman pump again. Maybe one from a wrecking yard off a low mileage truck.
