    A second diagnosis (as mentioned above) with possibly a different and less costly repair would be a good start.ASK your friends for references to a good , trustworthy independent shop in your area. At the very least , a second diagnosis , will not cost $800.00. Good luck.

    My mechanic told me that the new AC's with the new type of freon will act this way. On extremely hot days I will put it in neutral and step up the RPM's a little (rev the motor. If you are constantly in stop and go traffic, you may want to change your route.
