A/C Re-Charge, Green Blowoff?
Hey guys. The wife started complaining of her A/C not being cold anymore. I went and got a can of the A/C Pro for $40 and filled it up. It took the entire can. After this, tested it, everything was great. Ice cold air returned...
This was fine for about 4-5 days. She told me again today that it's hot air again.
I made sure the condenser was kicking on and that she was making sure to press the A/C button. When I got in the car, sure enough, it was HOT again.
I happen to have another smaller can (12oz) and topped it off. It took it all with no issue. When I removed it, I had some blowoff come off around the port, very lime neon green.
My question is two-fold.
1.) Was the neon green fluid that I got on the port simply r134a? I've heard it can come out green...
2.) Anyone know of common places that go bad where this might be leaking the refrigerant? I'm guessing it's a leak...any other suggestions? Worked fine since we got it in 2007, never recharged it, then recharged it twice in one week, seems fishy...
Any suggestions or ideas would be great.
Thanks in advance.
