  1. My Tahoe has been to the shop 6 times in six weeks for the air conditioner. Problem is I am in it $1,200.00 and it still don't work. They can't seem to find the leak. They have put a new compressor and lines and fan clutch and condensor in it and it still leaks somewhere but where? They have put die in it and still they can't see where it's going.
