My 94 Camry has had a leaky air conditioner for several years. I had it charged up six years ago, then again last year. Now, a year later, it seems to be dead in the water. How can you tell if the compressor is caput? And if it is, how much will it cost to have it replaced?

Freon Leak I have a freon leak in my 03 Pilot. I took it to the dealer and they said the evaporator was leaking, they also said that Honda recommends replacing the rear air lines. They said the repair would cost over 700 dollars. I asked how much to replace just the evaporator and they said over 200. I told them to replace just the evaporator. They lady I talked to told me she would tell the tech. She got back on the phone and said the tech told her that the rear air lines were also leakin

If i remove r12 with proper vacuum equipment and install r134 fittings to high and low pressure lines can i now simply add r134 freon? do i have to do anything else? Also, if i replace compressor do i have to vacuum any air that would have entered the system before charging with freon?
When the replacement is done, you can add r134 freon but be sure it is on normal gauge.There is no other thing to be done aside refilling the freon.Then for the compressor, you need no vacuum at all.I love that car ... Honda Prelude

When I turned on my Acura TSX A/C, it was blowing hot air, so I took it into the dealership. The customer service rep called me later and told me that I had a leak in my A/C hose that was causing freon to leak out. The cost to replace the hose including labor is $550. I was not given the option of having the leak repaired. I admit that I have a difficult time trusting car dealerships. How do I know if the car didn't just run out of freon and need to be filled?
Hi, I cannot dispute the price the dealership quoted. That said, a leaking A/C hose cannot be repaired. It needs to be replaced. These are vehicle specific parts so can get expensive. It also costs to vacuum the A/C system and refill wit ... Acura TSX
I have a 2005 Nissan Altima which has been well maintained. Today my a/c was blowing really cold as always and suddenly began blowing warm air. Within the hour I took it to a local mechanic who told me the coil and clutch "came apart". To replace the coil pully and clutch would cost me $545 but to replace the full compressor with these parts would be $745. I had not choice to pick up the car because I do not have this amount of money today to fix this. He charged me $43 for today's diagnosis bef

I have a 2003 Hyundai Sante Fe. I'm told that the compressor has a leak in it and needs to be replaced. When it first started happening after driving for about 30 minutes straight it would stop blowing cold air and the flow of air would decrease alot. We had more freon put in and the system charged and it worked for a while and the same thing happened again. What do you think?

I had my O-2 sensor replaced about 2 yrs. ago on my 1998 Ford Mustang GT, 4.6 liter several years ago. My check engine light came on a month ago and the Dealer told me it was the O-2 sensor. Do I have more than one and shouldn't the Dealer replace it free of charge? Also will it hurt my car if I ignore the check engine light and drive it, they told me it would cost $500 and that I should get it fixed. Teri in TX
Hi,$500 is a bit high. The sensors are on the exhaust and basically they help your car exhale. If you continue driving on a bad one it will throw your exhaust, intake and finally engine off key...They cost about $90 buck a pie ... 1998 Ford Mustang
My 2004 Saturn Vue air conditioner no longer works well when the vehicle is at idle RPM (sitting or driving at low RPM). It doesn't get very cold or seem to pull any humidity out of the air. The freon charge is fine. Dealer tells me that compressor is leaking fluid, $1500 to replace compressor. Advice?

Car sat up without being be driven or cranked for over 1 year. When we finally charged the battery and got it cranked, the air conditioner compressor would not come on. We put freon in and it started working, but only on one side of the car. But it appears after a day the freon leaked out and the compressor will not cut on again. I was told and O ring could be bad because it sat up for so long. Where is the O ring located?
There are several o - rings in the system .. You really need to give it a charge and put a sniffer to it to find the leak . It could be anywhere from the condenser to core. ... 2000 Buick LeSabre

Air conditioning 2000 grand caravan 3.3 liter. last year i had the air conditioning servist with a chage with coolant. it was cold & i was happy. the following year, this year 2009 it stopped blowing cold air. i thought there might be a leak in the system i overlooked. i bought a recharge freeon kit & charged it, so there is no question, it's charged. i'm still not getting cold air. can anyone tell me what the problem is & can i fix it. thank you, scott
You probably have air in he system. You need to vaccum the system down and then put freon in. You can either rent the equimpent to do it from autozone and do it yourself, or take it to a shop. ... 2000 Dodge Caravan

My 08 saturn vue has an odd chemical smell and film on the windshield. Had a shop visually inspect for foreign matter in heater box, and used a boroscope to inspect ducts, nothing found. R&I the blower moter, nothing. Pressure tested the cooling system both at cold and operating temps, holds pressure. tested the a/c system charge, good. used freon sniffer to detect leaks, none found. Replaced the cabin air filter. Any suggestions as to what might be this problem?

It took them most of the day, and the labor was $316, and the parts (6 m/craft spark plugs, 6 m/craft plug wire sets, air filter, fuel filter, ignition coil and intake plenum gaskets) were $302. They called me later in the day to let me know that the ignition coil was bad and needed replacement but were not charging me for labor on it. The labor costs don't seem out of proportion to what your $80/hr rate, and the plug/wire combo was about $21 each. You get into one of these scenarios, and you

My 1999 Odyssey had the passenger window motor replaced in August of 2007. The window just dropped when no one was around it. Yesterday the same thing happened. The window is very rarely used and definitely not in the last year as the air was out so the van was driven only enough to keep the battery charged. Is this normal?

2001 blows 10 Amp fuse and hot air. First time I took it to the dealer and they replaced the fuse, added freon and did an "extensive diagnostic" which cost me several hundred bucks. The fuse blew again less than 2 weeks later. I went out of town for a month and when I came back I stuck a 15 Amp fuse in (not the best move, but it was all I had.) That fuse blew after a day and a half. There is a possible correlation between the fuse blowing and driving at higher speeds. There are no other obv
I will not go into basic electrical theory, the fuse is blowing because a component in the ac system or the ac system wiring harness shorts out as it heats up, it would have been helpful if u provided the fuse number and what box it came from, I a ... Lincoln LS
I have a 1991 Toyota camry and the a/c switch doesn't turn on. I replaced the switch tha fans work and the freon has been charged. I am wondering if a fuse may be causing the malfunction. Oh the switch has an indicator light and doesn't come on therefore no cold air is being dispersed in the car.
