IToyota Camry AC

Asked by Jul 03, 2016 at 08:56 AM about the 2000 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Toyota Camry LE with 252,000 miles.  She was been named
"Tammy" by my girls,, who had her before me, and has been a great car..  
In the last year, I have spent a lot of money on having the AC fixed.  The
other day it stopped blowing cold air after being fine since I had it "fixed" a
year ago.  I plan on retiring Tammy in about a year, when I can afford to
buy another car.  In the meantime, I need to get through this summer.  I
bought freon the other day and put it in myself.  Ahhhhhh, cold air. . .until
the next day so that was $$$ down the drain.  Any suggestions on the
cheapest, reliable route I can go to sove this dilema?

Obviously you have a sizable LEAK in the AC system. The question is...where is the leak? Since you successfully added refrigerant to the system and the result was Ahhhhhh....comfort....you are now somewhat familiar with the various AC Components. Check the lines and tubes ....AC Compressor...components for tell tail signs of a leak. That would be a dusty dirty film of oil near connections. Look at the under side of the HOOD for what appears to be a Streak of OIL. Some components you will not easily check...and need a leak detector and some AC Dye. so...give a look see and get back to us.
