My 05 500's ac blows hot air when idling. A mechanic had me add freon, but it didn't help. Now it doesn't cool good even when driving. Any suggestions??

Yes, mine is doing the same thing. It is the compressor. It is going to cost me $650 to have it fixed. Airconditioning mechanic said he has already done 6 of the 2005 Ford 500's. Ed Jones
