Q: AC compressor leaking

asked by on

My AC compressor has a leak and doesn't blow cold air at all.

Your AC system needs to be recharged and have UV dye added. Afterwards, it can be inspected by a UV light to determine where the leak is coming from. If you need assistance with this, a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can come to your home or office to inspect the leak and replace the AC compressor if necessary.
