# AC: Fixing or Recharging?

I have Toyota Camry 2000. The problem is AC does not blow any cold air. So, I bought R134a and recharging it myself. It costs me about $12. However, it lasts for about a month. I checked with couple garages near by. Cost for checking AC is vary from$60 to \$150. They told me it covers only investigating NOT fixing cost.

So, the question come up to my mind is: Can I keep charging R134a without getting it to repair? Will it have serious damage to my car? Is it good thing or bad thing?

• I took my car to the Toyota dealer today and the machanic thought that there may be a leak. He added the refrigerant along with dye and recharged it. I was asked to bring it back if the air doesn't blow cool when the AC is on. Forgot to mention my AC did blow out cool air but wasn't as cool as when I first bought it. My Toyota is 12 years old bought it new. – Cynthia Apr 28 '17 at 22:33
