2000 Impala

Well lets see where to start It has been hot here in Ohio and Sunday I decided to charge my air condition So I did that with a re-charge kit that I bought at a local parts place. On Monday no air was blowing from my vents any ideas? I checked the fuses and they all looked good then I got the book out and it said that maybe the passenger compartment filter was clogged so I looked but could not find what that was Thanks for any help Ken

It may be possible that the refrigerant leaked back out over night, seen it happen many times. Does the A/C compressor come on when A/C is turned on? Here is the location of the in cabin air filter.

Where does the air come out from? Vents, defroster, or at the floor? And is the air coming out cold?

OK that changes things. Does this car have the dual climate controls? Also do you hear a vacuum leak at any time?

Can you tell if it is a vacuum line? And is it a formed hose? where does it end, by what part of the engine?
