Evaporator core or coolant?

Want the A/C to blow cold. high and low port pressures checked normal. How do I know if I have a block in the lines for the R134 or if the evap core is shot? How would I know if I need to replace the evap core or not?

If the core was leaking, you would have no pressure. Start with the basics, make sure the blend door is going full cycle. Make sure that the fan output is good. Don't over-think your problem, if the compressor engages, the cooling fan runs, and the pressures run around 30 and 225, the problem isn't with the AC, it is with the delivery.
