It hold's 36oz's I emailed you the a/c spec's to your personal email.I would hook up some pressure gauge's and see if the pressure's are within range for the pressure switch to kick the compressor on. Or turn the compressor off. Let me know what you find I think you can rent the gauge's from auto zone.
