I use a green die to locate the leak in an A/C circuit , not a stop leak sealer..

Yes , the most likely culpriet is an O-ring gone bad.

Ac won't hold charge 1997 Mazda b4000

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..

Ac blowing warm

you can buy a special dye to put in with the refrigerant to see where leaks are. next time it discharges, i would go thru all the a/c connections and replace all the o- rings. nice and cheap to start

A/c won't work; mechanic checked it and put freon in it and works for 1 day and next day blows hot

Your A/C has a very bad leak. That leak will need to be found and repaired for your A/C to hold its charge for more than a day. You can try to find the leak your self. If you watched him add the freon it is very easy now days. Add more, and use a liquid soap and pour a bit on each connection and around the areas where metal ends meet the rubber hoses. Look in front of the radiator at the A/C condenser coil for rock or road debris damage. Other wise take to your mechanic and have him find, fix and recharge the system. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Car sat up without being be driven or cranked for over 1 year. When we finally charged the battery and got it cranked, the air conditioner compressor would not come on. We put freon in and it started...

There are several o - rings in the system .. You really need to give it a charge and put a sniffer to it to find the leak . It could be anywhere from the condenser to core.

AC leak

Your best chance ,is to find someone that can do this cheaper ,like a friend ,of a friend,of a friend,and you order the lies,this is too high,and you should be able to get it done for less than half this much.Stop leak will not help this at all,a waist of money.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Ac not working right

If the system was workin enough for you to add freon and stop leak you may have overcharged the system and blew out the location of the leak to make it lose enough charge that it shut down from being low on charge. There is a low pressure switch that will stop the clutch on the compressor from engaging when low on charge. The hose connections have O-rings and the system needs to be discharged and the Freon captured to replace the O-rings. ALL O-rings should be replaced at once if that is the case. Look to see where the red dye showed up if you put in the stop leak. Normally the seal in the compressor is what starts leaking first. It sounds like your leak is bad enough that stop leak will not be the answer so you may have to break down and take it to a shop to check the system.

Overheating in really hot part of day and especially with Ac

The block sealer you used may have been too thick or too big. A leaking head gasket or cracked head is a rare cause for a cylinder misfire. Tryin putting a manufacture gasket back on and change the spark plugs. If that doesnt work, try checking your valves or pistons-- maybe you have worn valve guides or your cylinder wall is worn out.
