Be especially careful with AC. You want a shop that knows what they are doing. Get it wrong and you can hose the rest of the system. foul the receiver drier, or damage the evap.

If all you need is 4 months (and you are SURE) buy a junked one.

Errr... I don't want to spend $1200 on a new compressor. I am not sure; that is the issue.

Normally yes.

But my car has 65000 miles hence it's out of warranty.
