2000 Chevy Venture No air

I had my wife's van worked on they had to replace the head gaskets and now her air conditioner doesn't work. The place is now saying they didn't change her head gasket, but her intake gasket. Either way the air conditioner stopped working after they worked on it. It acts like the compressor isn't kicking on, when you turn it on, it doesn't have the sound or feel as if it has kicked on. Any suggestions?????

Replacing the intake gaskets does no require the ac to be sucked down and recharged, neither does the head gasket job. These vans are known to have leaking ac condensors. GM has redesigned the condensor so the replacement should last the life of the vehicle. The condensor sits infront of the radiator. Being low on charge, the ac compressor will not come on. If I were you, I would have the shop diagnose the leak and give you an estimate on the repairs. My bet is either a leaking condensor or a leaking rear ac line if equipped.
