I purchased a used trailblazer from a guy who said the A/C runs fine, it just needed to be recharged. Well I foolishly purchased it with the consent of the 'mechanic' I brought with me. (We were moving to Texas and decided to buy a car and drive down rather than rent one (uhaul, etc would have cost $2K, we brought the car for $3k, which seemed like a deal). I had it recharged for almost $150 in NYC, then again in Philadelphia because it started blowing hot air. It wasn't until the 3rd A/C repair shop that they showed me the A/C line was 'rigged' with a rubber hose, that would/will always lose the charge; as opposed to the rest of the aluminum tubing. I got an estimate of $1000 to replace the entire line, but I cant possibly put that much money into the car because: In Philly our front differential in the front drivers side went bad and they robbed me for $1400. I am dangerously close to exceeding this cars value. Is there a way to fix the A/C for cheap? Im in Texas and its swelteringly hot PLEASE HELP!
have the same problem?
