AC/Heating problems in 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

by lynnmicmac - 7/19/07 2:51 PM

Hi. I'm wondering if any other Jeep Cherokee owners are having the same AC problems as I am. The temp. fluctuates during summer and winter. At any given, unknown time, while I'm driving, it will not cool correctly, or even heat correctly in winter. The blower works perfectly. It's almost like it has a will of its own...comes and goes as it pleases. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. The AC air is not hot, but it is definitely not cooling as it should. The heated air in winter will flat blow out cold air.

One AC man said "It does fine with me. Works perfectly." Right now, the Jeep people have it in their shop, and they said it would cost me $670 just to take it out and look/diagnose/decide what it needs, and then to put it back in. That isn't including the part itself, or the repair work. They said they would look again and see if they could diagnose/test it without removing it, and will get back to me tomorrow. I have a feeling I will be picking up my Jeep tomorrow, still with a temperamental AC.

Has anyone else had this problem? I want it fixed, but letting Jeep do it will be highway robbery. I have another option in the form of a man who my brother says is a "car miracle worker". We'll see.

Sorry this is so long, but I'm frustrated. And, I'm about to make my last payment on it (and isn't that how it always is?)! I love my Jeep, otherwise. It's been a great car for me. No one else really drives it but me, so it's still very much like new.
