I had my ac compressor replaced in March, and now two months later, the ac has failed again. The mechanic has diagnosed failure of the new compressor, and that being under warranty, has replaced it with yet another. I'm grateful he performed such a labor-intensive job without argument, but he tells me now, afterward, that he's found a freon leak behind the dash and an oil leak beneath the engine, which I'll have to repair at my own expense. He's a perfectly nice guy but not a trained Mini mechanic, and I, knowing nothing about cars, wonder: Do such leaks commonly occur when recharging the system, as he says, and do they, as he also says, generally indicate the failure of an old part -- in this case, the evaporator? Or is it possible the leak could have been caused by recharging the system at excessive pressure? Also, could something about his first repair have caused the oil leak? Could something about his first repair have caused the first compressor to fail, and if so, is there anything I can do at this point to prevent the compressor from failing again? Thanks for all help. I really don't want to put blame where blame isn't due, but I wasn't prepared for this, and as I said, am lost in the woods when it comes to cars.
