gosh, thanks steve, for the timely advice.
now if anyone could help me with this - what does the evap temp gauge look like and where is it? i can't find it in my chilton's book.
the compressor sometimes "kicks out" while it still isn't cold, and "kicks in" again, and it especially likes to kick out during idle though not exclusively. is this eva temp gauge expensive? what else are possible causes of this? a bad compressor clutch?
my 123 is a M115 200 - 1979.
