Was working before I hit a dog, my radiator had to be replaced and ac consender fixed, it was tested and working. Maybe i didnt do it right.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Irene, Thank You for writing into AskPatty. To address your concern your R-134A should be added to your low side pressure line, typically this is marked by a blue cap with a "L" on it. There are many auto parts stores that carry a prepackaged kit with a hose and a pressure gauge included, be sure to follow the directions on the car. It is a simple process that can be performed by most car owners. If you need further assistance I would contact your repair shop that replaced your radiator, they may be able to inject a dye if a leak is present.

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Irene, It would be best to have a technician add freon/refrigerant to your system. If the system was opened up, because you replaced the condenser, then they need to run a vacuum on the system before you add freon. It's possible that there is a leak somewhere else as well. When they replaced the condenser they should have re-charged the system then. If they did and the a/c isn't working, you should take it back to the shop that did the work. Lori Johnson
