AC Leak

From : jmc

Q: ive emptied the first 120z can of r134a into my trucks ac via the low-pressure point and its still not even up to 25psi. is it possible the low-pressure valve is actually the leak i noted at one point when i took the hose off dye bubbled up around the valve pin. and it seems the more r134a i put in the messier it is getting around that valve. im making very sure the things on as far as it will go and im not seeing dye peppering out when ive got the trigger down. im also noticing a bit of inconsistency in the valve reading. sometimes it looks like im making progress. when i switched bottles the gauge told me all those gains were lost. advice jmc .

im also noticing a bit of inconsistency in the valve reading. sometimes it looks like im making progress. when i switched bottles the gauge told me all those gains were lost. advice i think youve exhausted the options you have... time to seek out a shop and get it repaired. sorry - i was hoping it would be easier for you. .
