I havent seen it only you have but yes it could be a freon leak ,this is what comes of these tins of gas which should be banned ,you must use the proper machine as it weighs the gas ,also it will vacumn the unit so you just leave it connected to the machine for 10 mins and any loss of vacumn indicates a gas leak .simple but these cans of gas cause more hassle than enough also this causes ozone depletetion and selling it through outlets where it can get into untrained hands?? to be be used in known leaky systems .Not a good idea

97 Plymouth Breeze won't blow cold air due to freon leak.


Your AC system is a closed system, so the fact you have to put more Freon in, means there is definitely a leak. I would check it out with a mechanic.

You probably have leaked out your freon after so much time. Try adding some more Freon if it doesnt stay charged you may have bigger issues.

If you have a leak in the system all the freon would leak out. Purchase a can of leak detector put in engine. Directions on how is on the can. If this shows a leak have lead repaired and new freon added. Could be compressor going out. Bought one on Ebay for $100 vs $300 from Auto Zone.

After approx 40 min of highway driving the AC stops blowing cold


The frosting of the line is normal. Did you use a gauge set when charging the unit? AND, most important, Did you evacuate the system before putting in the freon? Very important.What was your final low side reading and your final high side reading?
