    A/C Leak?

    Hi. Does anyone have any info on common places for the A/C gas to leak from? It empties over the course of 6-8 weeks without any outward signs. I'm reluctant to take it to a garage before I've exhausted everything I can check. It's a 2004 2.0l Turbo Aero.

    A leak test where they put some dye in the refrigerant is really the best and easiest way to find any leaks in the A/C system. It shouldn't cost too much and when you ask to only diagnose the problem, you always have the option to repair the problem yourself.

    Thanks for that Frank. The system has dye in it that's what I meant when I said there were no outward signs of a leak.
