Greetings! My name is Mark and I live in Tampa Bay Florida. I have just aquired a NB. This is my 1st VW. I grew up in a family of GM brand. I am a car nut. I have a collection of classics. I have always been my own mechanic. This NB air problem has me stumped. The fellow that I got her from had the Expansion valve, computer and both fans replaced, still no cold air. The compressor was not engaging, but after I bought her, I added 1 can of r-134. The second I hooked up the can, the compressor kicked on and the entire system seems to function fully, except, only hot air comes out still. Any suggestions?

You need to find out what the freon pressures are while it's running. Once you get those numbers, we can start from there.

To me, just guessing, two things comes to mind, air in the lines due to not being vacuumed down or the internal componets of the compressor are blowing by not letting the pressures build.
