Here in Southern Oregon we're experiencing record heat with temps topping 115! The pic is my cellphone holder melted off the windshield! Jeesh!
AND my AC stopped. ;(
Had it checked and coolant was full, no leaks but AC low pressure and high pressure readings were reversed so the compressor needs to be replaced. They quoted $850+ for the job.
I'd like some recommendations from this august group of saabonauts: DIY rebuild? Reliable remanumacture suppliers? New? Just pay the shop?
190K on the clock and I want to keep it going. I do have some intermediate experience flipping wrenches, have done bushings, timing belt and vent door actuactor ;) etc.
Thanx in advance and Happy Motoring!
