    I've used Jonathan Sniezek ....Cell - (403) 921-8529.... good mobile mechanic who operates out of his van.

    Young guy but very good at what he does. In addition to other work, he recharged my Civic's AC last fall at my request. Turns out there is a failed part (evaporator I think) so I will be calling him again for a charge once the part is replaced.

    The fittings in those kits do not thread onto mine so I wanted to let a shop deal with it. I have no idea why not but every R12 adaptor I've used does not work

    No shop suggestions?

    Edit will call Jonathan

    Old thread bump. Savage Honda fit isn't blowing cold like it used to. Compressor is definetly cycling, and air is cool-ish, but not cold enough. Being the cheapskate I am, should I just get the recharge kit and go to town or pay someone to inspect?

    I got an AC recharge done for 80$ at - Calgary Auto Repair Services. Very prompt and very kind. Added leak test to check for future issues if need be.

    I just had the wife's VW Golf tested for leaks and recharged at Budget Auto Repairs over in the NE. Place was a what you think for the area it is in (just off of 52nd and 17th ave) but no appointment needed, guys were great and $100 cash.

    Those kits are the worst. They often contain stopleak which is just a horrible idea for anything (coolant system, tires, oil, A/C). The “gauge” they have is equivalent to a narrowband O2 when you really need a wideband. They also don’t give you any way of testing if the compressor is functioning properly which a shop will no doubt do (meausuring high and low side).

    I vote no on the Canuck tire DIY kits

    Inspect. You have a leak which will mean repairs. If you don't care about your car or the AC then use a recharge system.

    I just recharged my Zonda last week. After four years I finally have AC again!!!
    I bought one of those DIY kits from Auto Value ($57). It was not working at first, then after youtubing I got someone to hold the throttle at 2500 rpm while I recharged.
    I have cold air!!! No more sweaty balls..

    The picnic table is the best part!

    In researching repairing my R12 AC in the Miata, I've come to realize that pretty much every shop does R134 pressure test, seal replacements, vacuum and recharges. Integra Tire was going to do mine until I got my R12 system fixed.
