Question about 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT Convertible

2 Answers

Mitsubishi Eclipse AC leak & dealership cannot find the leak. Been in for service 5 times and dye is not showing leak. Any suggestions as to where it can be?

I drive maybe 100 miles a week and within 2-3 weeks the AC is blowing HOT air once again. It's been in for service 5 times! The dealer has replaced the hose & then a valve inside at the top of the hose? Told me it was fixed and 2-3 weeks later HOT air! They cannot seem to find a leak anywhere, even with dye and some other thing they used. Ugh! Next week I have to bring it in so they can put it up on lift and let it run all day?! They think it's leaking out as I drive? Something under dash??Any suggestions?

Leak could be in the compressor, too. I had a similar problem, and used a leak-sealing refill kit. Still works fine after 6 months.

Your leak may not be coming from the outside. The AC has an evaporator tray that catches the humidity pulled from the air in the car drains it to the ground.. Sometimes the drain gets plugged up. Clear the drain and clean the tray. Sometimes that situation is accompanied by a nasty smell.

SOURCE: 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor - Air Conditioner leak on

Under the hood on the passenger side of the firewal there is a blower housing. run your hand along the bottom of the housing and you will feel a rubber fitting that is like a duckbill, That is the A/C drain. It can be seen better from under the car looking up. Squee it open and clear it with your finger,or just take it out, clean what you can and reinstall it. The edges of the hole fit in the groove and it is easy to put back on. The duckbill drain should be pliable enough toopen with the preddure built up in the blower housing letting the water out. The rubber over time hardens and is no longer flexible enough to open. $550.00 - $5.50. repair maybe.

Several possibilities.

1: The heater ductwork inside the car is plugged (usually leaves). You will need to disassemble enough of the ventilation system to clean around the heater core. Some cars you can remove the blower motor and get enough access. Use a short piece of garden hose duct taped to a vacuum cleaner hose to vacuum out as much of the ductwork as you can. If this is the issue check the screens on the air inlets- usually right in front of the windshield, for holes or other problems that would let in debris.

2: Another possibility, the flaps/louvers in the ductwork are not moving. Some have electric motors and the motors or controllers can fail, some have metal rods that move them and the rods can come unhooked.

3: The heater core could be plugged internally. Although a hot supply and a cold return make this unlikely. Remove and clean out, or replace the heater core.

1998 Isuzu Rodeo. My ac stopped working and is leaking coolant. Having a hard time finding the leak. Pulled the timing cover off but don't see fluid coming from the water pump.

Go to the dealer and have them put a dye in the radiator. Run and drive vehicle. Take vehicle back to dealer they will use a UV light and determine the location of the leak. I have done this several times to multiple vehicle and it works all the time. The dye will glow.

My service station did a partial AC charge because it was blowing hot air, 4 days later I noticed a pool of coolant on the driveway and the AC is blowing warm air again.

Clearly you have a leak inspect your ac compressor and hoses if you cant find it i suggest use die and trace to leak as you know ac system need to be seal 100 percent in order the function i asume you have lose nuts or crack on your hoses its easy fix.

How do you check for a leak in the Ac system in a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am?

You will need to inject a uv dye into the ac system with the freon,then look for the leak,you will have to wait,most likely until the ac starts showing signs that it is low,then you will need a uv light,and the glasses to find the leak,the red dye that is sold for this does not show up.

Get the gas pressure checked, if it is low the power is disabled to prevent damage (the gas carries the lube oil so no gas-no oil) you can buy cans and adaptors to top up yourself, the often have the correct oil and a dye to find leaks.
