I can't remember which way it goes...but if low side is high and high is low is that the compressor or condenser that is faulty....we were driving last night and our cold air turned instantly hot...please help it's a friends car!!!!!!!

those pressures reflect a compressor not engaged. Make sure the outer hub is turning with the AC on, have someone switch it on while watching it..If it doesn't grab, then it's not cooling, if it does, then the clutch hub may have broken loose from the clutch driver. A common problem on the 3.3 engine.. With the gages hooked up, try to see if there is any change with the ac on or off..Hub turning or not, etc..Hope this helps..
