I had a new compressor two years ago, 102,000 miles then. I have 133,000 miles now. I can't see any leak under the hood but it smells thru the inside vents bad. Is there a common place for these cars to leak from? Odor goes away when ac off and vent off

    You cant smell freon. You may be able to smell dye that was added to the freon. I recommend you have it professionally inspected.
