01 A/C clutch not enaging and overpressured

The other day my ac started blowing hot air so I tried to add some freon. When I went to add the freon the meter on the can was in the red, between 100 and 150 psi. I'm not very familiar with ac systems so any info would be greatly appreciated.

When you had the pressure gauge on did you have your A/C on max ac, full blast?

I saw on motortrend that you should never do your own AC work. Even with those bottles that come with the gauge.

Take it to a shop and have it done. Pending on the last time it was serviced, you could and proably have a leak. The lines need to be evacuated before they can add the refrigerant, and/or find said leak.
