Hello there, In fact I have an AC problem in my Mitsubishi Lancer GT 2008 Model; First time i went to check it they told me: your fan isn't working then i changed it and replaced the filter; after that the AC was working but not giving much cool air and since im living in gulf (temperature now around 45 deg) I went yesterday to another place; so he checked the AC gas and he told me that he refilled and he also removed the filter (surely when he removed the filter it was amazing: cool air was coming with low temperature and high pressure) then he cleaned with water .... I drove my car then i felt like only one of the ac dampers (outlets) is giving cold air and the others are giving normal air... today i checked the ac suction and discharge hoses and unfortunately the one considered for the hot isnt as hot as expected and same for the cold (normal temperature not cold) ... in the meantime i dont know what's the problem ... all i know that my AC isnt as good as i need taking into consideration that the AC fan is working in automatic mode ( working between two pressure limits: as i can hear the sound of its cutoff) .... really need your help in this issue .. thanks in advance,

The first thing you need to do is have the system pressures checked with a dedicated A/C manifold gauge set and ensure that the operator is competent in understanding the readings given, this is one of the best diagionstic tools to start fault finding the system. It is no good speculating on possible faults with out some form of back up information.
