Nissan Informative - Airconditioner - 2002 Sentra air conditioning
BUFFALO, NY USA, NEW YORK -- 2002 Sentra: Purchased used in June 2003. The AC failed in 2005 and the dealer "could not find a leak". The system was recharged and seemed to work until this spring 2006.
The dealer examined the AC and recharged the AC and said to use it and return in 2 weeks for further inspection. A dye was inserted with the recharge. The AC seemed to work OK. When the dealer reexamined the system it was determined that the AC evaporator case is leaking. Approx $650 to repair.
Why would the case crack even at 37000 miles, in a car that is not abused and the AC seldom used?
