    A/C Help Bugeye

    my A/C stopped working at 120kmi i thought nothing of it and took it to EZ Lube to get a refill the guy there told me its probably empty now due to mileage and if it had a leak the machine would stop cause it does a vacuum and some other test before recharging. it worked but stopped working the next day not sure how long it worked for since i drove it for a couple hours and parked my car for the day. i took it back and he said he didn't know why cause the machine is suppose to stop he did it all over again and same thing. whats wrong with my AC ??? help

    You have a leak somewhere. An A\C system is completely sealed, it should never empty unless there is a leak.

    I would most likely take it to a dealer for AC work, a place like this EZlube sounds kind of fishy for AC work at least. Have them pull a vacuum on the system and see if it holds. also have them inject a dye into the system when either the vacuum is going on or when they are charging it ( you can do it either way ). Once the system is charged make sure the compressor is cycling and make sure that the low side AC line is cold and the high side is hot ( be careful fore it will be pretty hot ). Also take a peek at the pressures, which vary a tad depending on ambient temp.
