2005 Dodge Magnum Questioning the mechanic

  • V8
  • 2WD
  • 38,450 MILES
Sorry for the subject title, but I am questioning the Dodge Sv.C Advisor. Took my car in with what appeared to be an A/C problem. During a 3 hr. Trip (all hwy.), Temp. Inside became quite cool, this car has dual temp. Controls. I turned up the driver side, few mins. Later the entire vehicle temp. Turned warm, turned temp. Down, and was not getting any air blowing from the vents. Arrived at destination, car was parked for two days. Returned to it A/C was working fine. Proceeded to return home, this time the trip was 6 hrs, made it 4 of the 6 hrs, and the engine light came on, and the A/C fan quit blowing, condensor seemed to still be working as there was cool smoke blowing thru the vents, but no hard flow as it had been blowing. I am getting from the Dodge rep. That this is the EGR valve? How does this valve have any connection with the A/c not working? Your help is most appreciated!
