A/C SEALS

1998 Chevrolet Camaro • 140,000 miles

Hi I am wanting to do my a/c seals since it is almost winter time. I bought the metal rings and the green rings. The car is only keeping a charge less than 2 weeks. I seen a/c pro makes a super sealer. I know it is a gamble with this but will it work. I know it could clogg the lines or the filter. If I change these seals out do I need to use a torque wrench to torque them down. If not how tight do these need to be. Thanks.

Everytime the patent runs out on one of those gases they suddenly discover that it kills the ozone and have to come up with a new more expensive gas. Dupont's a smart rich company lol.
