I've been a subscriber to Eric's channel for over a year. He lives in upstate New York in a small town. His dad was a mechanic and he used to work for him. I'd certainly buy him lunch for a week just to pick his brain.
My dumb butt I’d going to try and fix my own ac In my thoughts. Unless it’s the evaporator. I have zero desire to remove the steering column and complete dash.I am my own mechanic out of necessity and by choice. I have 2 old vehicles that I tinker with and I do 99% of the work on them. Sometimes I have to call in the professionals to get me over a hump like I did with my Mustang this weekend when I had the pleasure of meeting Swamprat and having him help me figure out my carburetor issues.
That's a long way of saying, I feel your pain. And I hate working in newer vehicles, which is why I'm taking my Jeep to the shop this week to get my ac fixed. Waaaaay too far over my head on that. [emoji38]
The way I see it, I can buy much more gas than I can ever use and do repairs on my two gas guzzlers than for what one new fuel efficient car costs. And, my vehicles are old enough that I can still work on them.I hate new cars. Bunch of parts made to fail and way too much plastic.
"New" as in a car with fuel injection. And some with carbs.
