Hi, I am trying to find some one in my area who can help my husband and I out with an air conditioner problem. I am a female yes, but I do know how to follow directions and make small repairs on our vehicle. I am doing this because my husband is needing heart surgery and getting out in the heat for doctor appointments etc is making him worse. I have paid two local mechanics $780.00 total to send me home both times with an air conditioner that lasted two days and then three minutes down the road the second time. I cannot pay rent and they have successfully taken advantage of me being a female So here is the issue. I first noticed the "Mist" from the vents as many call it inside the cab. The air conditioner pressure kept checking out perfect. Then I started smelling a strong chemical smell inside the cab and after the air conditioner started blowing warm and I rolled down the windows, it was even stronger. The second mechanic told me it was a bad heat coil which we suspected, and it was actually leaking coolant down along the passenger side of the expedition onto the tail pipe causing us to get sick off those fumes. After paying him $656.00, two weeks ago, the air conditioner worked two times and now blows hot hot air. No more smells and a second visit to second mechanic showed nothing wrong he can see, but he said he thought it was a little motor that costs $57.00 maybe and his labor would be another $210.00. However he is not guaranteeing that is whats wrong. I do not know what to do, but I have changed out a few window motors and light engine items before, and if I am able I have to try to fix this for my husband. Any one have any ideas? It would be so appreciated.
have the same problem?
