Re: A/C smell and warm air
I wouldn't replace the compressor and add stop leak...that would probably not be good for the compressor. This would be an "all or nothing" type thing unfortunately. You either get it all fixed, or you don't and wait it out. I'll warn you now, you're likely looking at well over $1000. Labor to replace the core is considerable. I've done this myself in my previous XJ. It was a whole day affair for me (never done it before), but I did it. The core itself wasn't expensive, it was the time it took to replace it. If you're handy at all and have any knowledge of automotive work, you can cut $800+ out of this job by doing the core replacement yourself. Shops wanted $1200 to replace the evap core in my 98 XJ, including the part. I got the part and some tools for about $200 and did the heater core while I was at it because I was already in there. The dash basically needs to come out. The box the core is packaged in needs to come out (under the glove box), the box gets disassembled, the core gets replaced, and the whole process gets reversed.
