Just add freon and it should take care of the problem

Unfortunately, the symptoms may require more work. A leak check from a qualified A/C tech is advisable. If no leak, then have the tech completely evacuate the system and service it with new refrigerant. R12a Freon is pretty scarce and expensive. Hopefully, your '97 was originally serviced with R134a refrigerant...simplifies things. Also, any A/C service must be done by an EPA certified technician to ensure CFCs are not released into the atmosphere.

Also, burnt fuses cause hot air to blow
