Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla
Air conditioning system in my 2005 Corolla stop working two days ago. I took it to service station and told me that I have a hole that allows the cooling gas to escape. But they did fail to show me the leak.
My question is as how could I detect this hole and can it be repair with out spending $500 as it was requested by service atation. Thanks for yout help
Hi. In order to find the leak, technicians use a device to find freon gas leaks throughout the system, I really don't know the price of the device, but it really works. And depending on where they find the leak ( hose, elbows, screws, assemblies, pump, etc.) they repair. It could range from $200-$800 or more on repairs. If you can find the device and buy it, it's really worth it, and you can do it yoourself because it's not difficult at all. Just make sure when you replace everything, Put one can of R134a gas with lube, so you can lubricate the parts, and the rest with normal R134a.
