R 134a posted by Hadassah08 on Jun 10, 2008 Report abuse I have purchased a stop leak product and 1 can of R 134 a refrigerant. Is this something I can do myself? It has a slow leak but the mechanic can't find the leak. Previous owner (close friend of family) filled the refrigerant last year and it lasted all summer into the beginning of this summer. Can't afford a mechanic.

Need to stop leaking fluid from an o ring on power steering system

Good luck. We have just gotten my dad's '99 expedition home from the Ford dealer again. This started in June with the power steering leaking and making a screeching noise. He paid $550.00 and it still leaked. Four months later and numerous visits, the dealer said he would have to pay another $250.00 for an EVO ? part. Also, they wanted to charge him $45.00 for an INSPECTION FEE !!! to tell him that this was leaking and needed this part! We are writing to Ford Motor Company tomorrow to report this dealer for customer abuse. Hope you have better luck. By the way, go to an auto parts store and purchase the part you need - you will save a TON of money.

The ac only blows warm air, have recharged it with freon but it only cools minutes before blowing warm again, could find no leaks

There are special cans of R-134A with dye in them for detecting leaks. Most leaks occur around the fittings near the compressor. Recharge the system with the leak detector can or R-134A. There are also cans of R-134A with an additive to stop leaks. I would use these products to either detect your leak or to stop it. Best of luck.

What recharge A/C refrigerant is used for a 1999 Chevy S10 pickup

On a 1999 s-10, your correct refridgerant is r-134a. I don't understand why wisconsin won't allow you to purchase r-134a at a auto parts store. R-12 is the refridgerant that has been banned in the US, and requires ASE air conditioning certification to purchase. I've never heard of any law anywhere prohibiting the purchase of r-134a.

Anyway, your system is a r-134a system.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Where and how to put R 134a refrigerant in

Adding a can of refrigerant might temporarily solve the problem.
A car of that vintage could have wide variety of problems. Since you have purchased the refrigerant, you should have a friend that has done this before show you how to do it. Don't be surprised if that does not solve the problem. I would recommend that you return the stop leak, and refrigerant, save your money and hire a professional to fix it. Find a grey haired auto air conditioning mechanic that is familiar with that year and model car. They should be able to determine quickly if it just low refrigerant or something more expensive.
