To better assist you if you need to get back with me please let me know if your model is just the Intrepid or the ES model and what the engine size in liter.
It is hard to say unless you have gauges hooked up to see if it is operating okay. If they said to change the dryer and recharge then it may be worth the try.
Once opened the system needs to have a vacuum pulled on it to burn all the moisture out of it and then I would have them put a leak detector dye in it. Obviously the 134a went somewhere. So it will just leak out again. So this way you will be able to see where it is leaking and maybe get that fixed.
Make sure your cooling fans are working okay. Open the hood first thing in the morning and start the car with the AC and blower fan off. The radiator cooling fans should not be turning if the engine is cold. Next reach in and turn the AC on and the blower fan on high.
Look at the radiator cooling fan it should be spinning. If so that part is good.
If that is including the part that may be a good deal.
