The AC evaporator can develop a leak resulting in insufficient AC cooling. Our technicians recommend when replacing the evaporator, have a pollen filter kit installed to help with air quality in the cabin.

air conditioning wont work, recharging only lasts a few week.
It's leaking, but I'm not going to fix it until next summer.
- update - I traded in the car and never fixed it. Over 7 hours of labor + parts makes this a very expensive repair!
