Car Tech ?-Honda Pilot A/C Dead - In friggin Nashville!

If there's any A/C or car techs out there, 4 hrs into our trip to Nashville to see the In laws our 03' Honda Pilot A/c starts blowing hot air. I turned it off for a little and turned it back on and it worked for about 3 mins and then went hot again. Stopped got some freon, hooked up tank and the low side read 175 psi. I let stuff out to pump in new stuff and it went to the moon again reading 175psi - with air on or off. I'm thinking there's something clogged somewhere in the low side lines. Is there some type of valve that can stick shut to cause the High PSI as its supposed to be around 55psi. I here the clutch on the compressor click on when i turn on the ac. THis sucks its like 100deg down here!

ac is my weakness


what is the low side reading when the compressor is kicked on?

you can have a stuck(clogged) orifice tube its like a little filter or screen


you can have moisture in the system and it froze in the line.



i had no sleep, so hopefully it makes sense. worse things is metal broke off from compressor and clogging one of the lines. accumulator bad

Is your cabin air filter dirty? Could be icing the evaporator. How is the condenser it’s in front of the radiator, check if the fins are bent or dirty? This would not let heat leave the system. Home AC guys might know more about it too.
