I finally got my A/C fixed. But I have to tell you guys...I got F**ked. So heres my story. Took the truck to a mechanic that was recomended to me. One that specializes in air. He took the truck and filled the system with dye and showed me were the leak was. Ended up being the condesor(payed him 32.50 for that). I asked what it would take to fix...489.00 total 189 of that labor. I told him that I would just replace the condensor myself and try to save some money and come back to have it fill. He said that was cool. So instead of paying 200 at Pep Girls for a New one I found one in good shape at a junk yard for 70. Put it in with a new orfice and O rings and ester oil on all of them. Took the truck back to them and all they had to do is a "Pump Down" and a fill of R12. Well after it was all said and done the shop charged me 130 for 3.25 lbs of R12 which I didnt have a problem with. But they charged me 130.00 for labor. I sat there and argued with the guy telling him that it only took half an hours work and no intensive labor was done so how did he justify charging me 2 hours worth of labor? He then refered back to his computer that tells me that the job calls for 2 hours and that is what they charge regardless of the time it took the mechanic. Then I explained to him that if I would have let them do the whole job that they would have only charged me 189. for three times as much work...only 59 dollars more then what he is charging know. I finally gave up and we settled on 97 dollars for labor. I am just so sick and tired of going to these mechanics and getting it stuck to me. I dont mind paying for there time and experience. But when it only takes you a half hour then charge me for that regardless what the book shows. Then you will wind up getting more business because I will recommend my family and freinds because I got a fair deal and not screwed. I tryed to explain this to the mechanic but he didnt quiet grasp that. I also explain to him that if I had bought the new condensor for 200 and with 130 for freon and 130 for labor I would have been looking at 460. bucks and would only saved 29 dollars off of his quote after doing 3/4th of the work myself. I would of been better off letting them do it. He could only agree that I should have let them do it. So gentlemen let me tell you this. You dont always save money doing it yourself because some way some how the mechanic will always get you.... By the way for you guys in AZ. Dont go to Wright Brothers Air and Automotive usless you want it in the shorts. Thanks for hearing me vent. Now get back to work.
