Default After timing belt change no more Air Conditoning?

The AC unit is leaking freon last year but it still have some cold air left in the system but after they change the timing belt my AC is totally out of Cold air.....could they some how disconnected my AC system and all the freon leaked out or that my system is leaking bad.....I know for last two year all I have to do is fill it with one can and it would last for a yr but doesn't look like it this year.

Sounds like they may have drained the system somehow. Take it back and talk to them. Good Luck!!!

Changing the timing belt should NOT affect the A/C system.

I believe the A/C system needs to be evacuated and disconnected to change out the power steering pump and then recharged. The power steering pump along with a lot more must be removed to do the timing belt.I think it's safe to assume the system may not have been recharged after assembly or a seal wasn't seated properly and leaked.
I would take it back to who did the job, they should stand behind their work.

I'm jealous of anyone who needs AC this month.

Here in NY there is no shortage of Cold Air.

First of all, thanks for polluting our environment and letting freon leak out of your car, knowingly.

Second of all, if your system was leaking, and they were able to tell, they probably lef tit empty, because it was leaking.

Or, the connector on the top/back of the compressor is broken off. I know when the motor gets raised up and down, it can sometimes grab on to the radiator fan shroud and break off if the motor is raised too high.

Check one of those two things. And fix your leak.
