I'm back ...am I being ripped off?
Okay 92 Camry is in the shop getting new timing belt & water pump. Figured the responses from you great people on here I was doing ok in the pricing area. I just called them to remind them to check the AC as I haven't had it since the end of last summer. Started blowing luke warm then hot then nothing. They told me they have to convert the old system to new and I asked why can't they just put the old freon in and check for leaks he said the old freon R-12? is 150.00 a lb....sounds like a sure rip off to me. Now I just got a call and my compressor rings have oil on them so that is where the leak is and I need a new compressor...total 350.00....is this a dealer rip off? Haven't had major work for the 13 years I've have it so I shouldn't complain about 700.00 so far in one visit. Just want opinions to be reassured I'm not being taken for a ride.
