Advice on HVAC replacement
So back in 2008, lost my AC, due to the control arm rubbing on the manifold line. The whole system has basically sat open for 8 years. The compressor was working fine when my refrigerant escaped. do I risk simply putting on a new manifold hose set and accumulator and orifice tube and just charge the system (after flushing), or would you all recommend a new compressor, evaporator and condenser as well?
Thanks for advice...
