We have problems with our AC. The dealer filled with Freon last year and added dye to check the leak. It worked fine last year, but this year again it was not working. They detected the leak to be in compressor and changed that part along with dryer and O-rings. A week later the AC was not working again. This time they fixed the Shrader valve and in less than an hour after taking it out from the mechanic it quit working. Now they say that the problem is with the evaporator. They are also saying that after changing one component, the other components are feeling more pressure and hence breaking down one after another (although I can't convince myself with that explanation). Can you pelase suggest what is really wrong?

Evaporator leaks are very hard to detect because of its location behind the dash. As for the repairs causing more components to go bad, I hae never heard of this. Sounds to me like they are just throwing parts at the vehicle. A schrader valve is a common repair to see when your mechanic has no idea whats wrong. Mainly because they are easy to replace and cost next to nothing for parts.
