03 Ram 3500 ac blowing warm put freon in now if I don't turn my truck off after putting it in AC works but if I turn it off within a few hours all of the freon has leaked out!!

If you have a major leak in your AC system, you can try a can of "leak repair" with your next try at recharging the freon, or you can take your truck to an AC repair and have it fixed.
Leaks can happen in hose connections, seals, etc.

Ifall radiator fluid leaks out and there is no holes in hoses where can the fluid com from

The seams where the plastic end tanks attach to the aluminum core body. There is a gasket in a slot on these to make the seal. They can leak, and if cold enough will weep slightly.

There is also a small chance there are some hairline cracks in the plastic tanks which are not hgihly visible until they are leaking.

Can a radiator be sealed.My husband is talking about taking the radiator out and sealing it with something

This vehicle has an aluminum radiator with plastic tanks.If he is thinking of using some sort of cilicone sealer he is wasting his time.It will not hold pressure and you will end up overheating the engine and creating a bigger problem.New radiators are not expensive anymore and you can probaly get one at your local parts store for under 200 dollars.

My 96 jetta 2.0 is leaking oil from the top of the oil filter mounting area where the water hoses connect to looks like it has two or three pieces bolted together might be plastic.can I take apart...

The oil is most likely leaking from the oil cooler seal. The oil cooler is the square aluminum piece that the oil filter screws onto. To replace the seal, remove the filter, remove both coolant hoses that attach to the cooler, remove the nut that secures the cooler to the block and slide the cooler off the tube. Replace the rubber o-ring seal which is available at the VW dealer. It's inexpensive. Replace everything in reverse order. Good luck

When i turn on ac it blows hot air

Normally due to low freon. Also, notice if the a/c compressor clutch engages, as it will not if the freon is low.

Leak undeneath upper radiator hose

The radiator on your Focus is mostly plastic on the top and bottom, and the middle section is aluminum/ alloy. If you examine the radiator, and are sure it isn't leaking from the hose connection, then the radiator will need repaired. sometimes, small leaks in the middle , metal section are sealed just by using some radiator stop leak in your engine's coolant. A radiator shop can replace the top or bottom plastic piece on your radiator too, and often it is a good idea to check the price of an entire radiator at your local auto parts store, as sometimes you can buy a radiator for less than the cost to repair your old one.

A/C leaks

You'll have to replace the seals. The seals were meant for the R-12 freon.
If I remember right, the R-134A freon works under higher pressure also. Therefore, that won't help the hoses and seals with R-12 grade hold in the refridgerant.
