My eclipse is only 3 yrs old and i took it to the dealer because the a/c was not blowing cold air and they charged me $118.00 to add freon. Does this seem strange for a car 3 yrs old to need freon? I don't agree. Any comments.

Its best to evacuate the a/c but if you are careful you may be able to hook up your freon tank and lightly charge the system if it works cold just let it be and if when it is real hot it feels warm instead of cold you might add just a little more freon but be careful.
no dealer has a reset for the a/c system by you mentioning that you replace everything it means the a/c compressor,air dryer,and the most important the orfice tube. if you hadnt replace the orfice tube wich converts the liquid into gas when it gets hot thats your problem.alot of mechanics wont change it as an a/c mechanic will.
As long as the belt is turning the compressor than the only other thing would be that the refrigerant (R-134) is not full. You can buy re-charging kits at any local auto parts store, although they recommend that you have a licensed dealer remove the old refrigerant so it dosn't go into the atmosphere. Good luck.
I had the same problem with the heater only working when accellerating. Found the overflow tank pick up tube was kinked. This of course made my coolant level low. So when the cars hot the coolant would push into the overflow, but when the car cooled the kink would prevent it from flowing back to the radiator.
Not sure about the ac/radio issue, although others have posted solutions for models later than yours. The oil leaking issue is more than likely a broken or cracked gasket where the pistons of the engine are located. May want to take it to a certified mechanic to get them replaced. Not a very expensive job on a 4-cylinder car. May also want to check the draining bolt where the oil is changed and the oil filter.
