Question about 1998 Cadillac Catera
Have had the a/c system evacuated several times. New compressor, expansion valve, dryer, hose repair (leaked), high-side schrader valve, system flushed (claims from repair shop). No leaks. Spent $1000.
Start in morning, a/c temp ~60*. As a/c is used, warms up to a/c temp ~70* within ~30-45 min. On hot day (~90* outside) system is quite useless. Is there any solution except junking car (used in Florida)?
Back at repair shop, now they claim that they need to replace evaporator.
I would have the dealer evaluate whether the radiator flaps and shrouds are all in place. Especially in Fla climate it is extremely important that the A/C condenser ( front of radiator ) stay at an appropriate temp. Of course that is not to say the EVAPORATOR doesn't have any faults. Hope this helps.
