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!

I've had everything replaced on heat/AC but it still doesn't stay on. The blower motor, blower motor resistor, AC control head module, etc.
The air condition blows warm air
