sounds like compressor clutch is trying to engage
so I would buy an a/c recharge kit get the one with a sealer in it follow the directions on package then if your clutch kicks in your good to go... if this don't work or only works for a day or two then need to find where system is leaking by a pro... I would be more worried about your amp overheating ...

I don't have experience with the avenger itself, but i've been wrenching on cars for longer then i care to admit and age myself... LOL.... but from what your describing i would almost suspect a ECU problem, but that doesn't make sense since you have injector pulses and spark. If you have fuel, air, and spark... The only thing i could suggest is recheck all electrical connections and possibly do a compression test to rule out anything that might have failed with the relearn test drive. A quick google search through some dodge forums didn't really turn up any common avenger issues, sounds like a hair pulling problem!

The intake and exhaust manifols are both attached to the cylinder head. Sneaking the head off withboth attached, is done, but you really want to know why that gasket went out. I would suggest removing both manifolds after you get the head out, and bringing the head in to a good engine machine shop, for surfacing and pressure testing. You will need to remove the cams. Make very sure that all cam caps go back on in the same position, as these are align bored, and are not interchangeable. Does your engine run hot? Is that why the gasket failed? If so adress that too, or you will be taking this journey again. Good luck, and contact me if you have any more questions. Buy one of those Haynes manuals, unless you have access to a good online repair data base.

Check your fan, if it is electric fan, make sure it comes on. Check if your radiator is blocked or clogged, Remove it and get it inspected & cleaned by a radiator repair shop

could very well be a head gasket ,just because you have no oil in water or whatever doesnt mean to say the gasket hasnt failed between a piston and a water jacket which is the most common type of failure so stop reading these sites looking for a quick fix ,this vehicle is a 1998 ,its old and the gaskets at this age are likely to fail with age .Off with the head and renew the valve seals ,reseat the valves new gaskets renew any suspect water pipes and change the timing belts and water pump if driven by the timing belt at the same time .then it will run for another 15 yrs with no problems

Yes the dash has to be removed.... But I wouldn't give up up on a flush. I use muriatic acid 1 part to four parts water.let it set five minutes. blow it out. Do it again, the blow it out the other way. I do it 3 or 4 times. Watch what comes out. Takes about an hour and $6 for acid. Removing the dash is an6 hour job. If you know what you're doing....A week if you are doing it the first time and it is cold outside... Count on it.
