    Today I decide to install pink injector into my wrx. I accidentally take off a screw that locate at the red arrow, all of the sudden I see pressured-air leaking out that hole. I know I did something wrong but is that damage my engine?

    Air leaking out of the hose ? at the connection or ON the hose ? If you can't tell, grab some soapy water and try it that way.

    You didn't damage your engine. You damaged the environment. The hose you indicated is actually the fitting to the A/C compressor.

    Any A/C repair shop can recharge the system for you and replenish any lubricant that was lost. Depending on how long the system was left open, it'd be a good idea to pull a good vacuum first -- they'll be able to tell what's needed to do it right.

    You can also DIY by purchasing refrigerant and lube in nozzled cans, but you'll need a pump to pull a vacuum and you'll also need to rent or borrow gauges to actually know if you're adding the correct amount and seeing the correct pressures on the high side and low side.
