Q: Leak in air conditioning hose

asked by on

There is a leak in the air conditioning hose.

Hello. There are multiple hoses in the A/C system. First, a determination needs to be made as to which A/C hose is leaking. This can be done by introducing dye to the A/C system and watching to see which hose the dye comes out of; this is the hose that has a leak. The leaky radiator hose would need to be replaced and the A/C system should be recharged. I recommend having this done by a certified mechanic, such as one from Your Mechanic.
