I'VE GOT A WITH 165,000 MILES ON IT. THE AC ISN'T WORKING SO I TOOK IT TO A SHOP THAT RECOMMENDED A NEW AC. THEY WANT TO ORDER AN AC

2001 Saturn L200 • 165,000 miles

AC is blowing warm air. I had it filled with freon and it worked fine for a couple of days then it started blowing warm air again. So there's a leak somewhere.

Yes I agree so when it was filled a leak check was not done? Was dye added? If not that is what needs to be done

Just to add to this one I agree with Docfixit ac dye works best the most common places to leak on these cars is the bolts that hold the ac lines on the compressor loosen up and leak there. ALso the high pressure line that bolts to the sub frame at the bottom of the radiator fan that one leaks under where the heat shield on the hose is.

I have also seen the radiator fan shroud rub a hole in that high pressure hose.
