Change the expansion valve at the very least, it's 20 bucks and 5 bucks for new O-rings.
Glad you understand and for around 500$ for the rebuild if I do it no labor charges or diagnosis charges either another member stated my budget is just a tad tight and for my Rx being over 12 years old a ac rebuild seems about fair

I would and I will it's just that for my ac system being 12+ years old and never ever needed freon or to be serviced needs a rebuild to hopefully last another 12+ years I already got my 2 main corporates my #1 my compressor is just weak and #2 my condenser is beat up due to highway debris
