Look at the engine compartment.. look at all the A/C pipes and hoses.. usually when the 134 gas leaks oil comes with it..look for oily deposits.. If you can't see any. there is a new tool at Harbor Freigh tools that will help find your leak.. There is also a can of 134 with "leak detector" in it.. its an oil with red die.. you install it just like installing the gas and then look for the leak with a white towel .. you would be looking for the red color on your towel.. If you buy the tool about the same price as the die you can use it over and over as you have more problems in the future.. When you find the leak repair it .. May just be a bad o - ring or possibly a bad seal in the compressor.. hope for the no-ring its much cheaper..

Ok, you need to keep checking other related items. How is the charging system, tune-up history, vacuum lines, braking (vacuum booster), and the fuel system (how is the fuel line pressure and has there been any issues with water in the fuel)?

The first thing to do is have the battery tested, just because you charged it doesn't mean it will stay charged if the cells are sulfated up or shorted.

Have a leak somewhere on my air conditioning has a new compressor.but is still leaking from somewhere but cant find

you need to have dye that glows under a black light put in the AC system, then a shop can easily find the leak., Have you looked for oil stains on the condensor core? where ever it leaks will leave oil residue, so look at charging port valves as well.

Ac wont stay on

you probably have a leak, what you will need to do is have some uv dye put in the system and then have it black lighted to see where you're leak is coming from. once you know where you're leak is you will know what to replaced and then your air should work with no problems.

1994 Mazda B4000 4WD V6. Check engine light on. Truck

if i remember right if the battery light and check engine light is on, your alternators may be bad. your battery may just have enough to keep it running for a minute or so. you can take it out and get it tested at a auto parts store. or try charging your battery for awhile and see if it stays on longer. if this is completely wrong let me know
