I just got done recharging the A/C in my car, all by myself.



:D



It's too bad it'll all leak out in a few months and I'll have to do it again.

Apparently somewhere where we cant see it, we used the dye and didn't find anything. Mechanic said it was probably the compressor & not worth investing money in to replace it since I have an old car.

being a front wheel drive car makes it a little harder, but it's not impossible. It's been a while since I worked on one of those but I think the AC compressor is on the bottom of the engine towards the front. Just a guess it's probably about $200 at a part store. I would call and check and keep an eye out for coupons.

We hate working on it because the engine is crammed in to the car & there's no room to work on it. I had a space just big enough to fit my small hand into to work in.
But thanks, I'll look in to it. :)
$200 wouldn't be bad.

I am impressed!

Thanks! :D
