Default A/C issues

Had my GF's A/C Charged, a week later it is blowing warm again. As there is no dye showing anyplace easy, looks like it might be the evaporator coil. It this a particular pain in the ass? How many hours does the flat rate book charge?

Can't speak officially but here's someone that had all kinds of A/C troubles and describes what it cost her.

By maryann_stro on Apr 06, 2011

since 2007 we have had some air condition troubles with our 2002 PT Cruiser. we've had 3 condensers (with new dyers each time, last 5/2010) & a new evaporator core in 7/2010. $2700+ later they say we need a new compressor another $850. Blue book on the car is maybe $2000-$4000 but the car has only 51,000 miles on it and I love it. I don't know what to do now. The condenser has gone every summer and I worry if I fix the compressor I'll still have to deal with the condenser again. Help???

How's the poor guy supposed to pay for his vacation to Hawaii if it weren't for people like Maryann?

Is it indeed the case if the fan isn't running, the a/c compressor won't engage?

No, it's probably a different problem. Low on R134a, bad high pressure switch or just plain bad compressor.
