Hello. The system should be vacuumed down and recharged adding dye to it. Wherever the refrigerant leak is the dye will leak out along with it and will show up a fluorescent orange/green/yellow with a black light depending on the dye used. If you would like to have this checked, a certified pro from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to pinpoint the leak and follow through with repairs.
