Its not working, and I can't decide to just remove the whole system (free) or pay some shop to fix it (probably $200 or so, maybe more?)

Seems like the free route would be the good logical choice, but with all this dang hot weather I'm sick of drippin sweat like a whore at church. I can't decide! realeklerlerkler!

No a/c is good until it hits 75F outside. Have fun going on a long trip with no a/c when it hits 90F. I'm too old to be w/o it. A reman. compressor is about $160. I think I got the one replaced in bro's cougar for under $300.

HA!

Thank god for my sunroof. My A/C hasn't worked for a few years but luckily the sunroof does a pretty good job of pulling the heat out of the cabin...still hot, but more bearable.

might as well get some die and test the system out, bet the leak is at the accumulator/dryer ... iirc the part is under $100


get a vacuum pump from eastwood company so you can pump the system down at about $50 or ebay for cheaper and get the R-134A and oil at wal-mart and some cheap gages from autozone for about $50 and you can repair the system yourself


but fyi, I just had the dryer replaced at a dealer and it ran me near $600, new dryer was about $150, $100 in R-134A, etc

dealers are bad.

I'm thinking its worth it to at least have it tested to find the problem. Its bloody hot outside today, and I'm dreading the 25 minute drive home even if it is at 60mph, its still friggin hot

the hot makes ryan grumpy.

in this case being in a new area and never having gone to a shop before and wanting the A/C fixed 3 days before SZ I did what I had to do. The dealer I went to was very professional and overall it was a nice experience
