sounds like you AC evap coil, it sits behind your heater core, if it leaks your R134 it will have a ass smell and your air wont work.

and are they hard to install your self?

Hi Jeanette0616, i have issue like this and the mechanic replaced the water pump but it didn't fix the problem. Have you fix your problem?

I still have the problem. I have bought some of that Freon stuff that glows with a uv light if there is a leak. my leak has got to be in the dash or something. I can fill it up and it blows cool for a day or two then its right back to the same thing. or its that coil thing. smh
