AIR CONDITIONING IN OUR CAR HAS A SMALL LEAK

1985 Toyota Cressida • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 108,000 miles

Question: 1985 Toyota Cressida Mileage: 108,000.&Nbsp; The air conditioning  in our car has a small leak.&Nbsp; A year ago we had the seal replaced and added Freon and now is having the problem again. One garage told us we need to have a kit installed to get away from Freon. At the tune of $600.00. The second garage says not to worry about the leak just keep adding Freon. What are we to believe?

Older cars can be converted to the new style of refrigerate (R134-A). However, the conversion is expensive. What we would suggest is to locate the leak in your system and have it repaired and recharged with the old Freon (R12). Leaking Freon is bad for the environment. Just adding Freon is not good and in California, it is against the law.
