Hard to say. I would take it back to the shop and have them check the
pressure first to verify that you did not lose the freon.
I was having some problems with the AC on my 190E 2.6. Loss of power on hot
days going uphill with the AC on. AC not being very cold. Upon heavy
extended acceleration heated air was coming from the side vents.
R12 charge was OK. I checked all the vacuum lines and found a crack in the
rubber boot that connects the check valve to the hard plastic vacuum line by
the fuse box. Once I fixed that everything is back to normal.
I presume that the load on the compressor and alternator due to the system
heating and cooling at the same time caused the significant loss in power.
Everything seems fine now with only a little power loss when the AC runs.
