2007 Mitsubishi Galant Q&A

2007 Mitsubishi Galant Question: I have a mitsibishi galant07 the valve where you add feron has a leak.

can it be repair and how much will it cost. I have to keep adding freon to keep the aircondition working will it be expensive to fix. -
Answer 1
that depends on whats leaking -
Comment 1
the valve when you open to put freon there is a leak there so the freon escapes. -
Comment 2
Most of the time the valve can be replaced. Does the valve look like a schraeder valve (tire valve)? -
Answer 2
some times you can clean port as long as ther is no freon in system or reconnect the gauges a couple of times and see if that works. i have had good luck doing that -
Answer 3
Not sure about Fla. , but in the D.C. Metro area , you can expect to pay from $95.00-$195.00 ,for A/C system evacuate and re-charge with dye(use dye in case there is a leak elsewhere).I've had two in the last year and a half that were seeping from the factory. Seen several others over the years with a valve leaking.More than half had other problems in the system , so be prepared for what you can't see as well as the valve you can see.Good luck. -
