Don’t know if this is the right spot to post this question!
So I have a 2016 Explorer Sport and recently the AC has completely stopped working. The compressor doesn’t switch in either. I took it to a mom and pop shop today hoping to save money and had it recharged and dye put in to locate the leak. I was told to come back in two weeks. Tech said 90% of Freon was gone. He said he filled it up.I drive home which is about five minutes away and the ac is working great and ice cold. But there was a hissing noise coming from inside the vents. Hoping it was nothing I went inside and about three hours later I turned it back on and the air is hot again and the compressor won’t turn. Could it be the evap core?
Thanks for any help!!

Biggest culprit is a leak for the rear AC unit under the bumper (drivers side). A crack can developed in one of the lines. May want to check that out. Evap core isnt a common failure on the 5th gen.
