Was on a trip a while back when I discovered the AC doesn't work. A friend's Honda mechanic (many states away) diagnosed it as needing a new compressor and a new condensor. Condensor leaks. I'm guessing the compressor hasn't locked. Fan blows warm air. Heater still works well. I've popped the hood and don't notice any difference in sound when the engine's running as to whether the AC is on or off.
I have a mechanic I trust but they don't generally do AC. They've told me if I have parts they'll replace, but are uncertain as to how to tell if it's completely shot. I'm not keen on taking it to someone I don't know, but maybe I have to?
How do I tell if it's black death on my own? Or, is there an easy way for them to tell? They usually work on Toyotas- Hondas not so much.
also, anyone know how good this kit is? Just in case?; https://www.ebay.com/i/323666987932?chn=ps
