I agree with your common sense approach. If the refrigerant charge is okay, the A/C clutch should kick on. But remember there are fuses and relays in that circuit that have to be working too. I don't understand how they figure a leaky evaporator keeps the clutch off. That's BS. If it's holding a charge pretty much, then there is no leak in the evaporator or anywhere else. It's "normal" for A/C systems to lose their charge over time. It doesn't always mean you have a failed part with a massive leak. Go to an A/C shop and get another opinion without telling them what you were told and see what they find. They make a leak detector device but it's pretty hard to reach the evaporator for testing. I think the first guys are full of BS. And that's not a college degree BS!
