Q: Air conditioner doesn't work

asked by on

The air conditioning is not working.

The AC condensers on these cars are known to leak, according to most owners that have had AC problems. Diagnosis of the inoperative AC depends on inspection of the AC condenser for leakage. The AC condenser is in front of the radiator, so it is often hit by debris and rocks from the road and can get damaged. I recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your entire AC system, and recommend a path to repair.
