Anyone having problems with the AC in a 2004 Trailblazer?
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- Recently bought a 2004 Trailblazer back in May and by reading all this I probably shouldn't have! The AC went out a couple weeks ago. My husband found a quarter size hole that was drilled under the right rear tire well. We thought someone had vandalized our car. It only blows out hot air. We took the car to a mechanic to see if the hole was causing the AC to do this. They said no, the hole was drilled there to pop off the fender. Who knows if that is even true.
They tried to see what the problem was with the AC system. Hooked it up to the diagnostic, filled it up with dye and freon, and in conclusion said that the AC compressor was shot, there werent any leaks. They wanted 1300 dollars to JUST replace the Comppressor!!! YIKES. My husband found a new compressor for 500 at auto zone, so we know they were trying to screw us. We called the dealership we bought the truck from and "nice" lady at COGGIN PONTIAC OF ORANGE PARK, FL said sorry your 60 warranty is expired, we cant do anything for you.
So we are stuck with a screwed up car we just bought and now not even sure if the compressor is really messed up. Anyone else having AC problems or anyone have any suggestions about how we should go about this, or are we just screwed? Thanks, any help would be great.
