Probably just need a charge. Easy to do yourself. I have a 93 MK VIII and it uses the "new" freon(134) and it's easy to get at the auto parts store.

Prolly just needs some new o-rings and a charge.. I wouldn't waste the $50 bucks on freon, unless you at least look for a leak. Not only that, but if the system is overcharged, it can damage the compressor, or cause a bigger leak.

I was a tech for Chrysler and Chevrolet for 8 years.

Fifty bucks????? I just recharged mine for $10. Costs me $10 bucks at Autozone every year. Why get into the BIG bucks if ya can do it for $10. The dealer wanted around $500 to "fix" mine. It'll take me 50 years to use that much freon.

Thanks for the tips guys, I appreciate it
I checked before I left work and no one had posted a reply...

I couldn't wait and I just got it out of Gus's Radiator over here.

I did a bunch myself.
It had this black death thing where the compressor pukes the inside of the compressor through the rest of the system.
looks like this black death

I swapped out all the necessary hardware stuff.redid all the orings etc.

I didn't get it all the way cleaned out and they had to flush/vacuum/charge it

I had a newer car once.. .well actually I still have it.. 92 Thunderbird SC I barely put any miles on them. and they just sit.
I put like 40k on it in like 10 years.. and that includes a couple of driving vacations

I usually drive the Goldwing into December, and March I'm usually riding again. a couple of years I rode almost the whole year.

Man this AC is baaaaaad assssss Ahhhhhhhhhhh
