First, Yes, they should have found the problem the first time.
I assume, You brought the car in for A/C NOT- working, The A/C technician I'm sure knew the problem was, low freon in the
system. Added more and, the A/C started working. (All IS WELL ?)
PROBLEM - where did the freon GO!!. What he should have done is check for the leak And, if he didn't find any, AND, That can happen.

That said, he should of put a can of leak detector in the system and, told you, he didn't find any leaks at the time.But, if the A/C stop's working again, Because of low freon the leak will be allot easier to find because, the leak detector would, show him where the leak was.
I have to assume the first time it was fixed he did not evacuate the system. What that is, you vacuum the system for 15 min to see if it holds the vacuum, if not you know there's a leak. Also, it takes any moisture out of the system.
PS. If the repair shop is up front they could help you some on the labor

old post.
G16a (8valve head) or G16b (16valve head)??which one
the 2 option engines are not the same.
first the cam must be timed, or spark is hopeless , due to its being end if the chain if events.
so, is cam belt fresh, 60kmiles or less.
its timed at #4 firing.
see main menu, click your engine.,

spark is next, and guess what, again 3 engines. but 2 for you.

distributor marks are #1 firing,
on all 3 engine, early 90s classes.
the cam cog wheel on your year, will have false markes
and is covered here, totally. (avoid "I" marks)

Oil leak front engine timing chan

1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

2003 hyundai sante fe leaking refrigerant. Where do I start

Get a leak detection kit from your local auto parts store. It's basically regular refrigerant with a dye added to aid in leak detection. When adding the leak detector, turn the truck on and the AC on HIGH. Add the leak detector and look for purple spots along the AC lines and compressor. Once found, you can make the repair but will have to completely evacuate the system prior to recharging with refrigerant. If no leak can be found, add refrigerant a 1lb can at a time until you get cold air from the vents.

The brake fluide is leaking I have filled up 3 time in 7 day how can I fix it

Look where the fluid is coming from under the car if it is in front of the car it is a front brake line issue these are easy to fix. look at the brake hoses on the left front and right front behind the tire these usually these lines dryrot and leak. the front steel brack line will usaully brake where they are mounted on the car body. If your brake line is leaking from the drivers door back it is a rear brake there is a single brake line that goes to the back and splits into two lines there is another rubber hose by where they split. you can fix brake lines with new steel line and compression fittings where you slide on and tighten the front is 1/8 size line and the back brakes are 3/16.

Back firing and idle surging

I had a 96 Chevy S-10. After an oil change it was running week and backfiring. took it to a mechanic that replaced the crank shaft position sensor, ECM module and the ignition module 3 times and still didnt fix the problem. Brought it to the dealership turned out it was a broken wire going to the ignition module causing all of that problem.

95 Geo Tracker AC line

Question: Is fitting leaking at the compressor or at the rubber hose end.

If leaking at the compressor hard line fitting. Try replacing "o"ring.
If leaking at the rubber hose end. Remove line and take to a HVAC shop that can replace "barrier hose (rubber hose using your fittings)

Any repair will require discharging the system.

I have a 94 tracker with hoses leaking. I would recommend replacing the rubber hose sections on both suction and liquid lines at the same time. You will have to discharge the system for either repair.
I would also recommend replacing all "o" rings accessible at this time along with a receiver dryer.

I work in the Auto parts sales for a large after market parts supply company and have found that hoses are not available from anybody, including a dealer for my 94 tracker. The system is very expensive to repair if you can find parts.

Hope this will help.
