A/C problem help

I have a 99 taurus se 3.0 auto sohc the air does not work and shows having no preasure in lines. I hooked up charging kit to charge, gauge shot up to 50 pounds and would not take any. Is this a pump problem?

If no pressure in system, it MUST be evacuated to remove moisture before charging and the accumulator/dryer MUST be replaced. If you dont understand exactly how an AC system works and the correct way to service it, I suggest you leave it to the pros to fix.

No insult intended. If you took a system that had no pressure in it, and simply tried to charge it, that tells me you dont know the correct way to service / recharge an AC system.

No answers? They answered your question and provided the correct method of testing your system. What insult? One responder merely noted you could benefit from professional service, because by trying to charge a system before pulling vacuum we could tell you weren't used to working on an A/C system. The truth doesn't change just because you're involved in the situation. Stop being so thin-skinned, and mind your manners. No need for insults.

Thinned skinned isn't the issue, he doesn't like the answer let him figure it out. Pull the pressure switch connector, use something to jump the terminals to kick the compressor in. Fill the system as much as you like. But don't complain to us if something fails in the future. You were given proper advise, you got your panties in a bunch, tough ****.
