    Pina-check ko ang a/c ng ek ko kanina kasi wala ng lamig. ang diagnosis: may leak na ang A/C pressure switch niya. so ang gagawin replace it plus replace expansion valve (P1800) and drier (P1500) baka cooling coil din pero check pa nila kasi estimate pa lang ginawa ko.

    tama po ba iyon? i just want to make sure kasi sumatutal 6k din ang quote sa akin kasama na labor (P450), cleaning, freon eh

    imo, medyo overpriced yung expansion valve at drier. if you're near banawe, you can visit excellar automotive ventures. last time i checked atound 750 lang ang exp valve and 450 lang ang drier. you're technician might frown if you buy your own parts but considering more than 50% ang mark up nya sa parts? mahal yun unless Sanden yung parts nya.

    kung pressure switch ang problema (leaky), edi yung lang ang palitan ... niloloko ka ng mekaniko ... punta ka na sa ibang shop bago sya makagawa ng ibang problema sa a/c mo

    ^naisip ko nga iyon kaso maganda naman track record ng shop na 'to among people from the south. pa-second opinion na lang uli ako bukas sa ibang shop at sa sanden mismo (kung buhay pa iyong sanden sa las pinas that is)

    mahirap ba mag-pa-install ng jdm evap? this could be one solution daw w/c may be cheaper. may kasama na daw kasing expansion valve iyon at 1.5k. pero wala pa iyong ibang parts dun

    Normally kasi, pinapalitan ang expansion valve at drier every 2 years. Yung mga ibang enterprising AC technicians, kada linis ng AC, gusto palit ang drier at exp. valve. Malaki nga kasi ang mark-up nila dito, sometimes double the regular price.

    Pero kung pressure switch nga lang ang problem, dapat yun lang ang palitan.
