A/C went out like a light!
My wife's 08 Aveo had super cold A/C. Then like a light switch it went out. I put the gauges on it and the low side is 90-100psi and the high side is 185-190psi. With 90psi more on the high side I don't think that it's the compressor. What else could it be? Scottykilmer.com told me it was the orifice tube or the compressor. But I can't find a replacement orifice tube online so I'm inclined to think that it doesn't have one. Any thoughts?
Check the ac relay?And fuse,s.
It probably is an orifice because the low side is WAY too high and the R134 is not getting through. The low side should only be 25-45psi max. Hold on while I find a diagram
OK I could not find one for an Aveo but here are some typical generic systems and charts. Click on them for full screen

Hello,fordnut,you not far from passing me on the board,good work.
Thanks guys. For the price of labor rates, I can throw parts at it myself and still save money.
