A/C evaporator has leak, per dealer after putting in dye. Says $1400 to replace

(1998 Toyota Camry)
in Fort Lauderdale, FL on April 03, 2012
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.
