I had air conditioning recharged; it only worked for a short time. Recharged it again this year; only worked for about 2 weeks. I have not had anything else done to fix the problem.
my "mantana" has the same problem with the leasking condensor coil-dye in the refrigereant helped me find it after several wasted trips to the dealer.
A/C keeps failing on this car. Lines rotting out, rear a/c hoses breaking at rubber couplers.

Only fix that worked so far was new a/c lines in front and rear a/c delete. New condenser from later model uplander and rear a/c block off kit from ebay ($70). No rear a/c but no more 10 foot lines running to rear of van that can break and rott away.
Took to a repair shop and they said it had a whole. They wanted 600.00 to do the work. I couldnt afford it so still no ac.
ac failed after 5 years, lines rotted out, we live in MA with salt on road in winter, did not replace due to cost
