The Green Stuff is Freon with Dye in it.
I had a Firestone in Athens Ohio do the original Compressor.
When he reassembled the system, he used 3 bolts instead of 4.
I was driving last summer on I 64 going to Virginia when my AC stopped.
I took it to my local Firestone in WV and they said they've never seen
a compressor do that. They had to repair it under Warranty.
The manager has been very helpful in getting the AC right.
My Condenser was original--meaning 12 years old and they charged me
what it cost from the parts store and installed it during the AC work
for $180 which I thought was Fair.
They bought an "AC Kit" from NAPA and that's what they installed this time.
Right now the AC is great and Cold.
The real test is will it last.
I'm tired of messing with it but I really like my car and
not having a car payment.
I've watched plenty of video's on you tube about AC.
