Fuck this shit.
This is the 4th time it's been fixed.
First time, stealer fixed it and put dye in it.
2nd time, I took it to a local shop and I said there was dye in it and there's obviously a leak, they just recharged me.
3rd time. they replaced my receiver dryer unit.
4th time is now, and it's 96 degree daysin the middle of exams with a heat index of 110. It sucks. Humidity is way up.
I think I'm just gonna recharge that shit myself because I think I saw a leaky hose joint under the car, but it could be my transmission cooling lines. (no spots on the driveway)
It can't be that damn hard to do, right? hook up a small canister of that shit to the inlet valve behind the right headlight and equalize the pressure.
98' E36'ers use r-134a, right? the older models used R-12.
something like this on ebay would be much better than taking it to the mechanic and having him do like 300$ of labor and crap to fix it for me.
