cause the lubricant to collect in such a way as to deteriorate the switch seals and result in a refrigerant slow leak? I have replaced the low pressure switch at least three times since purchase of a used 1990 Cadillac Eldorado with 29,000 miles on it. Present mileage is 113,650. Replaced the compressor and drier in April 2014. Refrigerant leaked out by mid November. Had it recharged and it leaked out in one month. Service tech inspected all sources including evaporator drain lineed and sniffed it after charging it with 5 lbs. and found no leaks. Removed low pressure switch and found lubricant present. Is this simply poor GM engineering?

there is pressure but no power to stop the car. The repair shop said the brake booster shorted out when the alt. went out. I only had the car running for 2 minutes tops when the alt went out. Is this possible and is the part really $2700.00?
