A/C out on 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan -- Help
While in Florida, my A/C went out. I recharged the system with dye at Tire Kingdom. It blew Cold Air for half a day and it went shut. I took it back to Tire Kingdom and they said that there is no leak. The tech said that my evap core is gone. Then he tells me that there are two of them: front and rear. He said the fix will include replacing the evap core, dryer receiver, and Orpheus (sp?) tube for a total of $1600. That's a lot of money. I understand that to replace the front evap core one must take out the whole front instrument panel. The tech couldn't tell me whether the front or rear evap core is shut. It looks from the AllDataDIY website that the rear evap core is a hell of a lot easier to replace. Is there anyway I can find out which evap core is faulty?
The bummer here is that I had the extended warranty on the van until 100,000. Right now I am at 107,000. Plus, last July, my A/C stopped working and the warranty covered the repair. It included charging the system with DYE, and the fix on the second visit.
Thanks in advance
