2001 Toyota Camry LE with California emissions system
The Air Conditioner has been fixed twice because blowing hot air, been trying to get it fixed for 3 summers. Each time it was charged with freon, and each time it blew cold for a short time, a month (or less), then blew hot. The passenger side vents were the first ones to blow hot each time. First the condenser was replaced, due to leaking, by mechanic #1. Then an O ring due to leaking, by #1. Then mechanic #2 replaced a leaking receiver dryer for.
The check engine light has been on during this time, registered Code 446, which indicated replacing the evaporator canister with sensor. Would that fix the problem? The estimate for that a while ago was $498. I've already spent over $800 and don't want to replace something else if it won't fix it.
I do not see a connection between an Evap System Problem and the AC issues you are experiencing. Sounds like you need to find a mechanic who knows how to service and repair AC Systems. Sounds like you have a small leak no one has found yet. We usually add DYE to the system when we charge them up. This way....if the car comes back with an AC complaint....the dye helps us find the leak. Get back to us when you finally resolve the issues with this vehicle.
