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
leaking freon inside vents smells like nail polish remover on 2005 Ford Taurus

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