    AC Problems!!!

    Well, I have had no problems on my 98 TA's AC system until now. It does have 131K miles so i guess its time for things like this to break. Yesterday i was driving with the AC full blast, no problems blowing cold. Then I stop at a light and then i noticed smoke or steam coming out of the right side of the hood by the windshield or firewall area. When i parked the car it sat for 2 or 3 hours and then I hop back in it and then the AC blew warm air. It still blew strong but it was just warm air. I looked under the hood and there was no liquid anywhere or any signs of a busted hose. My brother said it could be the evaporator or dryer which i think is mounted on the firewall. Any help would be great.

    Get a recharge kit at walmart. charge it. and look and listen for the leak. be ready it will come out fast! if it was on the hp side of your ac system it will be steam.

    Save the cash and do it the right way, Go get your ac recharged... They should check for leaks after filling and then you can go from there.
    The recharge kits arent as good as getting it done correctly.

    Save even more cash & check your AC belt before you do anything else, especially if it's the original belt.
