The air conditioner on my 2000 Chrysler Town and Country stopped
putting out cold air the other day. It had been working fine up until
that point but now only puts out warm air. Someone suggested checking
the in cabin AC filter which I will do but considering the AC isn't
putting out any cold air I'm assuming it's something else? My question
is, is this the type of thing that should be checked out by a
certified Chrysler shop or can any reputable auto repair shop fix
this? Thanks in advance for any info.

I would suggest checking the compressor to see if it is engaging. With the
engine running, and the A/C on, the compressor clutch should engage. If it
doesn't, it's most likely because the refrigerant is low. A sensor prevents
the clutch from engaging if the system is low on refrigerant.
If if there is a leak, I would suggest starting with the connections on the
compressor. I had a Voyager where the "O" rings went bad. The shop replace
d those, and then recharged the system. It was still working, when I got ri
d of the van 11 years later.
