Ok, I have an ’89 V1500 (350 AT) and the A/C on my truck has never blown cold air in the 4 years I have had it, and frankly I didn’t care. It never gets that warm in Seattle anyhow. Now I’m moving from Seattle to Eastern Washington. Whole new ballgame. 95 degrees is hot enough for A/C to become useful to me. I have no experience with A/C systems. Is it worth fixing? Any recommendations of what I should expect if I take this to a shop? How much should I expect to pay for R12? How much does the system need? Would it be worth it to have a shop trouble shot the system and then do the work myself and take it back to them for a re-charge? Should I say “F-it” and just by a big cooler full of beer to throw in the back? I’m willing to blow a couple hundie troubleshooting, and maybe 6 bills to fix. I could really use some guidance. Thanks all!
