More A/C trouble

2002 V8, dual-climate control.

I had my heater core replaced in December and while they had the dash out, I had them replace the evap core, blend door actuators, etc b/c my A/C was not working last summer. So they charged the system and it lasted only a couple of weeks. Took it back in February and they said my compressor was bad, so they replaced my compressor. At this point, I've got about $2,000 invested in all this work.

Now the A/C is not cooling. It feels cool when it's cool/cold outside, but when it gets in the upper 60's and into the 70s and close to 80, it does not feel cool at all.

Any ideas?

I had this problem with my wife's Liberty. It ended up having a small hole on the back side of the condenser. The AC place that I took it to was able to put in some type of die and tell me exactly where the leak was. They wanted 600 bucks for a new condenser and labor but I did it myself for 225 (condenser and coolant).

I bought a kit at O'Reilly's. Consisted of a can of "flourescent" dye, a small charging hose and a small flashlight about the size of a fountain pen. Load the can of dye into the system and charge it up to specs. Once it stops cooling, go over the system with the flashlight. Any leaks will show up bright yellow.......

I thought that's what I was paying the shop to do the first two times.
