Q: Refrigerant leak

asked by on

My car is leaking refrigerant.

Hello. The refrigerant will commonly leak from components such as the AC O-rings or compressor, but it can also leak from many other places. I suggest you have a trained technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your AC system to locate which AC component the leak is from. The federal government requires all AC servicing and repair to be done by EPA certified technicians. YourMechanic provides such technicians whom will inspect your AC system at your home or office if you desire.
