Does running the A/C without freon do damage to the compressor?
My wife was in an accident last month..not her fault. We got the car back from the repair shop and she noticed the A/C wasn't working. We took it back and found out that it had a big hole in the radiator shaped thing in the front. She had driven around for about two days with the a/c light on before we figured out there was not any freon in the system. I think the freon has oil in it to lubricate the compressor? Would running the a/c for two days do any damage? or should it be replaced?
