    Air conditioner!

    I just got back from a 3 month break from my Firebird.
    It's been sitting outside in the driveway in 102+ degree weather each day
    and my mother only drove it once while I was gone....

    As I got home, I went to drive it and my air conditioner blows hot air.

    Another problem is Ive got a check engine light on too....

    I have a guy coming out tomorrow to look at it for me, hes a family friend and its free of charge, He said about the air. If its freon, its free of charge to put it in for me..

    but should I be worried about massive amounts of cash needed to be put into this if its more then just a freon leak?

    Well.....if his labor is free then that would be awesome....air conditioner problems can get quite pricey....I bet it's only a leak though!

    It's not good to store cars for long periods without cycling the AC. The system contains an oil that keeps the compressor and seals lubricated. Hopefully, a simple re-charge will fix it for you. Make sure you check your tire pressures and all your fluids, belts and hoses. It's also likely that your brake surfaces will be rusted up a bit and they may make some noise the first few times you stop.

    Being a '95 I'm amazed it worked as long as it did.. I would bet it's on it's last leg.. A recharge may work.. But the leak should be located and the lines/seals checked for cracks, debris, and then recharged.. Reason: the A/C gets cycled everytime you run the defrost, 3 months of sitting and not using the A/C should'nt cause an issue that was'nt begining to happen anyway.. just my .02

    Thanks guys! I'm still waiting for him to come over and look at it, But last summer before I drove it down to Texas, I had the air replaced, not just recharged but fully replaced.....

    UPDATE

    I still HOPE its just needing a recharge, if not, I wont have a car to drive when I get my lisence, which is tomorrow -_-
