Have a 14 dodge avenger sxt 3.8, 125k have it for almost 2yrs now, single zone with auto climate control, ac always worked perfectly, had well logged maintenance and no maintenance was ever done to it. So I used it the other morning and it worked fine and when I get to work I turn it on full blast and turned off the car so when remote start it will be somewhat better inside(I've only done this a couple times before) but when I get in my car it was hot as sh,t(98° outside in sun) and it never got better since then, so I noticed that the passenger side blowes out somwhat cool air while driver's side is ambient or alil warmer. Heat comes on great and even on both sides when turned on but the ac stopped blowing cool air. At first I thought it was a actuator so I ended up swapping all 3 with each other to see if problem moves or something but no change, the AC compressor actually stays on while ac is on like it should, the one line has frost on it shown in image so I'm not understanding why it suddenly stopped like that. So this mite be a hint, while swapping the actuator on driver's side the two lines (shown in second picture and can see actuator on right) where very hot and I think those two have something to do with ac but could be wrong. Any suggestions what I should do next? I don't ever do shops and do everything myself, I can't find my Haynes book anywhere is frustrating. Please help me out with this issue, thanks.
