When I parked the van the air conditioner was working fine. Several hours later when I started the van the air conditioner wasn't working. Took it to the local dealer where I bought it and service rep said I had holes in my hoses (two) and it was a four hour job to replace them and the parts (two hoses) were over $400, with the total cost being over $900 for labor and all. Has anyone had this problem with the Uplander and is there a less expensive fix?

Shelley, Have them show you the holes and have them explain how they found the leaks. Then I would get a second opinion, see what the other shop says.
