Because There Is No Time Like October For This...

The air conditioning on my 2005 Ford Five Hundred has been sadly lacking for a while now, despite a trip to the local mechanic last summer. Especially problematic is that it doesn't seem to function at all unless the car is moving at some substantial speed. On the other hand, the car itself is running fine so you can't really send it out to pasture just because the A/C isn't working, right?

Now a friend of mine was looking for a new used car which led me to recommend a Five Hundred for her particular needs. And this led me to doing some Internet research on the cars. Somewhere during these searches I tripped over a reference to the A/C problem that I deal with on my car.

It looks like this might be fixable with a $35 part and less than an hour of labor.

I have spoken to my mechanic and have ordered the part. They'll install it.

And then I'll chill for a while.

I hope. :)
