I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
the engine not reaching temp is normally due to a stuck open thermostat
a leak in the AC system will have no impact on the engine getting to operating temp or not, so if the AC will not cool, it is likely not related to the engine temp issue
