Air Conditioning problem
1994 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 91000 miles
Have a fairly serious fc134a leak in this vehicle but am having trouble pinpointing the exact location. I have a freon leak detector that goes off like crazy around the compressor which happens to be right by a quick connect for the high pressure line. I put refrigerant with UV leak detector in it and checked for leaks at the quik connect with black light. Didn't see any evidence of leaking around the quick connect. Saw a little bit of the UV stuff on the top of the compressor. My question is: Is it likely that the compressor is leaking refrigerant? I've done several AC repair jobs but haven't run into a leaking compressor. Usually the high pressure lines, connectors or condensors are more likely to leak.
