2008 Kia Rondo Question: air conditioner problem blows cold then hot until car sits for about 5 hours



, 2.7L V6, Gurnee, IL, July 06, 2012, 13:15

After it sits it blows cold again for same time frame. Been diagnosed as a compressor clutch needing to be replaced. Cost $701.00 does this seem reasonable?

    The clutch engages the compressor, cools down the cabin to correct temp, clutch turns off. It takes one heck of a beating. Doesn't sound like it went out, sounds like it is going out. I believe at that cost they are selling you a complete air compressor. That cost sounds high, unless you are getting it from a dealer! Goodluck
