    Not sure what kind of vehicle this is on but it could also be a clogged orifice tube or receiver dryer.

    Like a manifold gauge or just one of those ones that comes with the cans of freon?

    The ones that come with the freon don't really tell you much, you need to be able to compare the high side to the low side. The low side should be around 30 psi (R-134a's pressure @ 32 deg F) and the high should be roughly 2.5 times the ambient temperature (ie, if it's 90 outside, it'll be 225 psi)

    Using the readings from the manifold gauges will help you figure out what's going on with the system. Unfortunately, you can show good pressures, but still be low on freon - part of the system is in a gaseous state and thus will maintain a constant pressure dependent on temperature.

    Basically what I'm saying is, you need more info, hook up a gauge set. I'd let you borrow mine, but I'm in Austin now.
