When I charge my air conditioning system, it gets cold for about a day and a half and then nothing. I'm fairly certain it's a leak, as this has happened several times even after replacing compressor. Thanks.

    The two most common leaks are a bad compressor and a evaporator. Either one is expensive. It might be time to consider a different vehicle.
