2000 Dodge Intrepid 105,000 mi,
AC is blowing out hot. I had the AC recharged and after one day it went out again. They put a dye in and could not find the leak anywhere. When they turned the ac on, they indicated they could hear a hissing that was the evaporator core. I have not fixed it because it is too expensive.
