Air Conditioning problem
2003 Honda Accord 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 84000 miles
MAKE/MODEL: 2003 Accord EX 4 door Sedan
I'm at a bit of a loss as to what I should do so I wondered if any of you could help me. I read that the 2003 accord has an exposed A/C condenser which is easily hit and fractured by pebbles which can results in a leak.
So A/C stopped blowing any cold air at all. When I turn the fan on I don't hear the compressor/condenser or anything engage. In Memphis, TN. This is torture with no A/C.
day 1: Jiffy Lube: There was no freon in the system. Had it recharged - compressor still wouldn't turn over
day 2: Auto shop: No freon left 24 hours later, obviously a leak. Shop I took it to recommended new compressor/clutch + receiver drier for a grand total of $1300.
Could either of the above components being faulty result in a leak? I read the compressor clutch does not turn on if there is insufficient pressure?
Should I get a second opinion or buy the parts elsewhere and get someone to install them? I don't trust the shop I went to
Thanks for your help, I'm completely retarded with anything mechanical
