Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Collette, I recommend that you return to the place where you had your a/c serviced. They may have left a cap of the high or low side, which may have caused your freon to leak.

Bogi Lateiner, Owner and Technician at 180 Degrees Automotive Hi Collette - It is very likely that you have a leak in your AC system. It is a closed system and does not normally leak out. If when they "serviced" it - all they did was recharge it - than they really did not fix anything. The leak must be substantial for it to leak out so quickey. Hopefully they put dye in the system when they recharged it and it will be relatively easy to find and repair. If you are comfortable with the place that worked on it originally bring it back to them... they may credit part of your last service towards the repair. Good luck!

Karen Davis, Service Manager at Smith Stokes Collette, I would immediately call the shop who worked on it and let them know. They should be willing to take you right in to check it out. Good luck!
