Yes sir! Pulled a vacuum of about 20mmHg. We shut off the vacuum, and let it sit for about 15 min to verify the vacuum held. No leaking noticed there. After that, we turned the car on, a/c full blast and tried to fill. Barely moving. Tried turning the car off as well. It just would not take. We pet it go for a good 15 minutes and didn't even get through half a can.
So, just ordered the OBDEleven for arrival tomorrow. I plan on running a full scan, but what blocks should I be paying specific attention to? Obviously the compressor and A/C related, but would there be anything on the engine module, like fans? Thanks!
I just saw this thread. As far as the fan not working, it very well could be the brushes have got stuck. If this has happened it will not show a code. I went through this last year and just replaced the whole fan assembly at the cost of somewhere near $90. There are photos on my thread "GTI on the Cheap".
