So I've had my AC looked at about 5 times in the last year. It cools and cycles normally about 70% of the time but other times it will completely stop working and blow hot air. I've noticed this happens most often when I'm sitting still in neutral or in rush hour start/stop traffic. But I can't consistently reproduce the problem.
I had the radiator replaced about a year ago because it was cracked. Most recently I took it to Firestone 3 times where they replaced a compressor hose and 2 schraeder valves. On the last visit they could find no leaks and the mechanic suspected it to be either an electrical or clutch problem of which he had no way to test.
The only option I have left is to take this to the dealership and my dealership SUCKS. I know those ****holes will just say "we can't reproduce the problem" and charge me $90. Unfortunately it's the only dealership within 100 miles of me.
I'm seeing a few other posts from people with an 02 that are repairing/replacing their AC system. Is there something wrong with this particular model? Anything specific I can tell the ****holes(dealership) to look for?
