Question about 2003 Ford Expedition
I'm surprised that the shop will even work on it...stop leak does not work but it can and will damage the expensive machines used at shops.(it isn't really very good for your system either)
If the leak is in a component you believe that you can change yourself, It may be worth doing it, then having a shop purge and charge the system...However if you don't manage to get it right, there is no guarantee on the work.
It will then cost you more.
It's just my opinion, but if you do lots of your own work, this is one area that should be left to the pros...you have saved money overall. Even knowing what I know, I hesitate to do that work unless I have the proper equipment available.

I had the same issue with my '97. Seemed like my freon would leak out within a few days. Took it to the shop. They couldn't find the leak after 3 hours. After getting it home, I heard the loud hissing from the rear air when I had it on. I replaced the Themostatic Expansion Valve (TXV) after researching similar symptons on the net. That seams to have fixed it for me. No more hissing and I'm at week 4 with ice cold air. If you do happen to have any freon left, you should have it recovered before replacing the part. It's the silver square with 4 hose connections attached behind the panel at the back on the drivers side. It was about $60 at my local parts store.
