I have had several, three, expansion valves replaced on the Stratus. This has been in the time frame of one month. One time the "O" rings were replaced. These repairs last about 2 to 4 days. Is the repair shop over looking another problem?
Do you
have the same problem?

No system was not flushed and receiver was not replaced. This was done at a, now former, and trusted Dodge dealer. I will suggest that to them.
Thanks,
