2002 WRX Wagon Dead AC
2005 dealer replaced expansion value.
2006 Replaced top high pressure hose due to leaks.
Now my AC is dead again. When the AC went out I smelled something funny in the car right at the time it died. I took out the dash and found the Expansion Value covered with sticky oiliy stuff. Is this a indication that the part failed?
When I tried to charge the system to get the compressor to kick on I noticed oil slightly leaking from the joint between the new high pressure hose and the compresser its self. I hope this is due to a leak. In the fall when this happened i did get the compessor to kick on. Last month i was unable to get to kick on. I did stop the test until i was able to get a popor set of gages.
Any help would be great!
