Help ac problems my mechanic cant seem to fix
I got a 2006 expidition with an ac problem. We have had this car since it was brand new and have not had any problems with it until now.
In november last year, my ac started blowing hot air, so I took it into the mechanic, I do want to note that we are stationed overseas and i took it into the post auto shop. The mechanic at that time refilled the freon on put a dye in it and told me there was a leak from the compressor and i needed a new one. I got a new one ordered, but it took me until a month ago to get it put in. Mechanic calls me after he replaces the part and tells me the part is defective as it is still leaking (they said they took it out 3 times and replaced the seals 3 times, but it kept leaking) they took pics of the leak and it is leaking from where the compressor meets the little box with the two lines. This part is held together with one screw. (Also want to note my husband is deployed and i have no clue with cars whatsoeve). so they tell me i need to get another new compressor, a new gets ordered they go to install that one and calls me and tells me it didnt work either. They are now saying it was nothing wrong with the compressor i got first and that it has to be the lines, but they are not sure. All 3 compressor, including the original one, have kicked on and worked, but the leak wont stop... Meanwhile i am out $800 in parts and labor and have not gotten any closer to a working ac. Anybody else with similar problems? or know what is going on here? Just frustrated over here.... thanks for any help you all can give.
