I honestly do not know, once we turned it off, it did not come back.

One shop said that I had a bad AC compressor and another said that I may, but the expansion valve was bad, and I needed to replace everything together. The lowest estimate that I can find is over a thousand, but the mechanic today told me that I can do it myself, eventually.

I almost never use my air conditioning, even though I drive a black car in Arizona and have a professional job.

I just rarely have passengers.

My air conditioning works pretty well, although there are some sounds that apparently come from the bad expansion valve.
