Hey there, thanks for writing in about your 2003 Chrysler Sebring. The problem is that you are low on coolant and the A/C needs to be diagnosed to see why it is not working. If you have a coolant leak, then have a mechanic locate and fix it. I would have to ask why the mechanic took two months to do a timing belt and water pump? This is not normal to have the car in the shop for that long. I would consult another expert to inspect the AC system for you in order to have this diagnosed and repaired.
