Musty odor, oily residue on windshield. Ac charge would slowly leak off at first, then compressor started whining. removed EVAP core and heater core to replace heater core suspecting/assuming evap core was ok and compressor was ac issue. Evap core was leaking badly , the foam was soaked with the dye check used by auto shop. gotta find somewhere to get replacement foam or make one myself.
