1998 Toyota Camry Question: A/C evaporator has leak, per dealer after putting in dye. Says $1400 to replace



Meliski, Fort Lauderdale, FL, April 03, 2012, 23:06

both the evap and the drier.They put new freon in,(2 wks ago) now cooling almost as good as originally.I was told that a possible fix to seal the leak is something called Red Devil (?),put in with freon and allowed to circulate well,& may evan take doing it twice to seal it. Ever heard of this and is it worth a try? The person who told me about it says his a/c now running great for 8 months. Thanks so much for a reply.

    Rarely does somthing like this acually fix anything. All it really does ruin lots of really exspensive equipment that we use to recycle and recharge with. I wish there was a way to get the snake oil junk off the market. If you cannot afford to fix properly please just roll awindow down and wait till you can afford.
