This sounds like to me that you are out of freon.

The borescope was only like 20-30 dollars on Amazon. I can send you the link to the video of your interested.

Thanks everyone. I will try this and see what I come up with. Hopefully I can take the car in sometime next week to be serviced if it is indeed low on freon. If it isn't then I have the new aluminum blend door on hand ready to install.

might be too late to chime in, but I took mine to Firestone for the $15 check up. they claimed so much and offered $1,900. well, I took it to a random hole in the wall place and turns out it was the valve right on top of the radiator. that piece was $15 and they charged me $220. that was a good deal because recharging the system in a vacuum is not something most people can do at home.

point is, get a second opinion if you haven't already.

ps/edit: no issues since.

edit2: buy a freon at autozone or whatever you have nearby. the worst that will happen is you will lose it all. it's a $40 trial. I did this.

Thanks for sharing this. You are right about getting a second opinion! I still haven't had the chance to have it inspected locally at a shop due to my work schedule. I'm hoping next week will be the week to get it inspected to determine the cause for the issues I am currently experiencing.

I also kept mine a few ticks off cold but it went anyway. It is like 1/4 warm all the time. I take the heater hoses off and put a bypass in it during the summer and it was never so cold as with no hot water going in there. In the winter I hook it up. To warm the cabin up I put it on recirc till i get comfortable and put it on outside air. If i get cold back to recic. Screw it im not doing that repair. Takes 5 min to put in the U bypass.

Update: The line with the cap that goes on top of the radiator is not cold at all when the AC was left running for a bit. Looks like it is out of freon. I still haven't gotten a chance to take the car to a shop yet to have a look at due to my work schedule and family life. Fingers crossed for next week!
