Default 2008 Camry A/C Problem

Hello!

I have a 2008 Toyota Camry LE 4cyl that blows warm air when I turn the air conditioning on. How do I check if the compressor is still good? I cannot see any clutch that engages when I turn the a/c on unlike the compressor on my 02 Toyota Tundra. I just wanted to make sure that the compressor is bad before I buy a new one or could it be just the climate control that is bad?

Or it can be many other things. You system is likely empty. Hence, compressor will not turn on. Hence, you have leak somewhere and it is pointless to do any replacements, until leak is located and mended.
hence, best course of action is to have that resolved first, which means - either trip to independant well priced a/c shop, or buying leak dye and charging system with it. Then you can see where leak is.

The first thing I did was to check for any sign of leaks and there was none. I have a manifold gauge and the system is holding a charge. Any other suggestions?

Thanks

I was told by a Toyota technician that very rarely does any camry compressors from 2003 on Fail because of the new clutch design(no more "Click" when it engages,he said its an electronic clutch inside the compressor or something like that,he said he has never had a bad compressor come in the service dept,but leaks and condensors and evaporators
