    so you are going to dump freon into the system just to have it leak out? sounds like a waste

    Imho best to have the system vaccumed out too. This gets out any debris and lubricant trapped in the system or residual refrigerant (which you prolly don't have anymore left *don't bet on it tho*) in the lines and so forth.. If you do deside to charge the system yourself, I can't stress enough to wear eye protection.. R134a etc, can blind you instantly if it sprays into your eyes...

    i have a small leak guys its taken 2 and a half months for it to leak out to the point that the AC isnt cool anymore.. I live in florida where its hot as shit and my car is black with black leather and no AC absolutely sucks. Its a temp thing like i stated before so its really not a waste for 20 dollars. Now if it was a gaping hole the size of a quarter then there would be no point in charging it. Smittro thanks for the advice on the eyewear i didnt know that but its too late now lol.

    Sounds like you need the "285" AC system until you can fix it right.

    2 out of our 3 GM vehicles use this system; can't stress it enough. I gotta wonder though why an '04 Silverado 2500HD would need 5 recharges at 120K? (one at 30K, 50K, 70K (dead blower motor at this point too), 90K.. 120K and no confirmed leaks even with UV and [geeklisp]super radioactive dye penetrant stuffs[/geeklisp])

    There's also the 345 system.

    3 windows down, 45mph. GMC 3500HD Diesel Dump. Windshield has NO seal left so if we clean it; we get drenched in dripping windshield slop. Fan is actually blowing hot air now (AC reverted to aux heater a year ago) o_O.
