Default 1990 Camry: air-conditioning problem

Just had my cooling system replaced (rebuilt compressor, receiver
dryer, retro fit kit, freon R134a). The replacement system doesn't
cool--at all! If the shop doesn't come through with something that
works, how should I proceed? (I live in California.)

The shop sent the car out that way or .... it ceased operation shortly
after you got the car back?

If the compressor is turning when the drive clutch engages then I would
move to investigating the expansion valve if so equipped. Possible
failure or obstruction. BTW, there are one or two R-12 replacement
refridgerants that are said to be environmentally friendly. Check the
web.

The shop sent the car out like that. I picked it up Friday at
closing, so there was nothing I could do.

I'm taking it back in tomorrow. Thanks for the info.
