visible refrigerant leak at condenser. Replaced condenser.
Leaking condenser coil on top edge by Radiator cap........ taking to the shop
I had air conditioning recharged; it only worked for a short time. Recharged it again this year; only worked for about 2 weeks. I have not had anything else done to fix the problem.
my "mantana" has the same problem with the leasking condensor coil-dye in the refrigereant helped me find it after several wasted trips to the dealer.
Took to a repair shop and they said it had a whole. They wanted 600.00 to do the work. I couldnt afford it so still no ac.
