Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
You can purchase a leak detection kit, which consists of UV goggles and UV light.(black light). You would have to pump some refrigerant from a bottle that has die inside with the refrigerant. They sell those at any autoparts store. You can pump some in , run the AC and check/look with the UV gogles and the light as to where the die is coming out of. With the goggles the die will show flourescent green. Thats, where the leak is. Or you can go to a garage/dealer and they will charge you about $100-$150 to do the same thing. (except they will inject the die with a specialty tool and than look for a leak) Some of the cans of R134 from store have die inside of them already. Read the can label. (the UV die will not hurt the system at all). The UV goggles and the light will run you about $40-50??. As far as repairing the leak, it could be potentially costly or it could be just a o-ring. You will not know until you pin point the leak with the UV die. O-rings are cheap, but something like the AC condensor could be $500. If you saing that the you can hear it in the front of the engine, it could be the condensor which is the radiator looking piece in front of the radiator. You can see it through the front grill, that's the condensor. Like I said, pinpoint the leak and make decisions from there. Let me know how you make out with that. Good luck.
