Air Conditioning problem
2002 Other Chrysler Models 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 69000 miles
Last summer got a strange, musty odor when you turned the motor on. I had heard that mold would create in the evaporator and you would get a bad odor like this (two or three times prior to this the air conditioner did not blow cold air). Off and on it would blow cold. I bought a " kit" at my local parts store, supposedily a clear, kind of like " foamy shave" that you spray up into the evaporator drain tube. Car did smell better for a short time, but after a week or so the smell was back and the air conditioner for cooling quit working. The blower comes on by will not cool. The heat seams to be working fine now that it's winter but we still have the smell when it's first turned on. I've heard that the evaporator's are prone to go bad. Are they hard to change. I need to get this repaired before hot weather. I'm an engineer and have mechanical ability and have been involved in the trucking business as well as a colector of muscle cars (MOPAAR). Thank you for your assistance.
