1992 SL2 with leak in condenser and dry line

  1. Hello,

    I have recently been having A/C problems in my 1992 Saturn SL2
    (174,500 miles
    and still trucking along, although hotter now). I took it to Saturn,
    they charged it up for me with R134a (conversion valves/fittings
    retrofit done by them previously). That set me back $70. It worked
    pretty well for about 3-4 days, then the A/C puttered out. I went back
    to them and they looked at it at no charge. They say that the
    condenser is leaking and needs to be replaced: a $500 job roughly. I
    took it to an independent place and the guy said the Saturn dealership
    did a shoddy job, cutting corners, only putting in 5oz of oil instead
    of the max 8. The indy guys want $775 to fix it (and get the job done
    right supposedly, including flushing the evaporator core, dryer line,
    receiver line,etc). How can I do this economically? I would like to
    do it for $200, maybe $300 max.

    I'm glad I don't live in Arizona as I'd be dying about now from the
