you still havn't tried to fix the A/C!? It's like $9.99 for one can of refrigerant (how much I used) and kits that have one can and gauge/refill hose is like $19.99. It's really easy to do too, unscrew the valve cap, screw onto A/C valve (located usually on the A/C pump, if hard to get to there's usually a second one on the A/C line). And recharge the refrigerant until correct pressure is acquired.

Here's one can, you can get them at wal-mart.
Here's what a Recharge Kit looks like, it has the hose you need to attach to the valve, and a gauge on the hose. They go anywhere between 20-25 dollars at wally-world. This is more of like what I've seen at wally world, except it's got a smaller 13oz. can with it, and is also 10-15 dollars cheaper. 22oz. can do a few vehicles, so 13oz. should be enough. When You do it, have the A/C on high, feel how cold it is before you do it, then while you're recharging, notice how often the A/C pump kicks on and off, it should (instead of engaging the clutch on, then off, then on, then off,) keep a constant on, with an occasional kick off (you're keeping the A/C on high, max cooling while recharging), then after pressure is optimum, go inside and feel the air temp. it should be cold again.

Back to tranny, fix it, and stop spending so much freaking cash!!! then sell it, or turn it into an EV. If you do it yourself you can save even more money than paying for labor.

Yea.. I drive a Jeep and I'm on a fuel economy site, but you just wouldn't understand... "It's a Jeep thing!" *Jeep Wave*
