2003 Toyota Corolla Question: Air conditioning Compressor

 

Question

I have a 2003 Toyota Corolla and the air conditioning has stopped blowing COLD air (it still blows warm air). My husband checked the pressure to see if it needed to be refilled with one of those kits and the pressure is fine. After doing some searching online, I am assuming it is probably the compressor. MY question is how much should it cost to get fixed (I don't know anything about cars) or is something we can do ourselves?

    If it is the compressor, and Florida people use lots of A/C, so it is possible. I would not try to do it unless you are pretty good with fixing cars. You will also need to replace the receiver-dryer which is a filter. On RepairPal.com the estimate for the compressor ranges form $982-1197. The receiver dryer will add to this. I STRONGLY recommend the reciever-dryer as well or the debris and metal particles from the old compressor will take out the new one in short order.

    I had the same problem last summer. It ended up being a computer problem. My mechanic fixed it for around $60.
