Q: Possible AC leak

asked by on

The AC was checked and filled. The repair shop mentioned the possibility of a leak.

Hi. The air conditioning system is in fact a sealed system and any failure due to a low system charge must be the result of a leaking component. Have a trained technician inspect the vehicle’s air conditioning system for signs of a leak.
