I don't know of a good way to check where the leak is coming from for certain without the necessary tools. However I had come to a similar conclusion while looking at my Chilton book for my van. So I'll take that back panel off and see about getting some eyeballs on that evaporator and see if it was as corroded as the one in the dash. I guess if it's in decent shape I may need to go to a place and have them dye/sniff the leak out before I can see about fixing it.
As for the vacuum leak from the hoses I wouldn't have a way to check since I would have to hook the system up to reacquire pump and the metal lines I think run under the car. Not sure though. So this may be something I won't be able to do until I have the leak location.
Thanks for the confirmations.
