So after a local mechanic recharged my AC system, (without asking it to be/was working fine) one month later I had no more cold air. Looked into it, turns out the schrader valve on the high side had sprung a leak. I have replaced the valve. The question is, is it safe to assume I have lost the oil and the refrigerant? Also, I assume since it was "open" to the atmosphere it will need a good vacuum pull. But would it be necessary to have it recovered/reclaimed first? It is all floating out there in the air already?
have the same problem?
