Yes you should. Once the compressor fails in sends flakes of metal from the pump into all components of the a/c system. The drier really needs to be replaced. The evaporator and the condenser need, at the very least, to be flushed. Depending on which state you are in there are VERY high fines for working on your a/c with being certified. Make sure you are not in one of these states. If you can buy freon in your auto parts, you should be OK.

White smoke in santa fa

Hi Secure,

I was going over unsolved problems and found yours.

After a cool night, condensation forms on the cool metal. The white smoke is that condensation burning off. If it did not stop, that would be indicative of a worse problem.

Comment back if this is still occurring.
