 Rookie

I had someone put antifreeze into the A/C system and within a short while it all shot out toward the top of the hood of the car. The person told me it wa a hole in my hose that runs along the wall near the cabin of the car. I can't find this type of problem to click. I am looking for an estimate of repair and time needed to repair.

    If anti-freeze was put into the A/C system of your 1998 Chevrolet Lumina the is probably more damage to the system than just a leaking A/C line. Perhaps you are mistaken as to what service was done to your A/C system. If in fact one of the A/C lines is leaking the affected line will need to be replaced and the system recharged. The A/C system in your Lumina should use the refrigerant type 134A. Do to the fact there are a number of A/C lines which could be leaking I cannot provide a repair estimate.
