I just checked out the glass covering on the compressor, or what I think is the compressor. It was under the hood, driver's side, behind the headlight, down at the bottom mounted to the frame. It was really dirty but I cleaned it so I could see through it. I then turned the car on and looked through the glass. About 3 seconds later, I saw something like smoke, or what it looked like whizzing up towards the glass. I then checked the temperature via the climate control (N22 read-out) and it read about 45.5 degrees F. So system seems ok.
Question is that it didn't look like there was water in through the hole, should there be? Or maybe I just coudlnt' see it, and there were no bubble; that must be a good thing.
