    Yeah its been brutal out there I know. Mine's been out for 2 years and I'm just finally over it. Got outta the truck the other week and went into a restaurant and had a diagonal sweat mark across the entire front of my shirt haha.

    Hopefully your bill is less than mine was lol. That stung a little but every time I get in my truck now after work and it's 100+ degrees out, turn on the AC and it's blowing cold within a minute....totally worth it.

    even before mine quit entirely it was basically useless if the temp outside was 90 or higher.

    I'd be surprised to hear of a company that would be willing to wait an extended period of time for an intern to start, they usually want someone right away. Even for regular non-intern jobs that's usually how it goes.

    I think mine was a result of the truck's low mileage when I got it. I don't know if it's true but I've heard that AC systems work better when used regularly and with 24k miles on the truck in 2016, I'm sure the AC sat unused for long periods of time. It didn't work that well from the day I bought it.

    Hell the corolla had 700k before the a/c clutch died. It had never been charged till that point. Threw a new clutch on it. Recharged it. It kept going. Even after the accident that bent the lines, the a/c still blew ice cold



    regular use does indeed help

    You say things like, "It's not that bad with, especially windows down," and, "I'm going to order the parts and knock it out myself then get the system recharged."
    Even when you fog the cab up because of humidity and pouring rain and you had to roll your windows up.
    Or when you get outta the car wet from sweat.
    Or when you buy waterproof seat covers.
    Then you hit the ceiling of excuses and call the shop.

    Yeah my ceiling was after our daughter was born...she doesn't ride in the truck often but I'm definitely not going to subject her to a desert summer in a vehicle with no AC.

    I don't mind abusing myself that way, I am a recovering catholic after all. But I won't do that to her

    The one on the Tacoma would have most likely survived if the previous owner hadn't discharged the system and refilled it without oil. The compressor was dry as a bone and locked up when I got it.

    Oh well, if it wasn't a screwed-up mess, I wouldn't have bought it and restored it.
