Question about 2000 Ford Focus
I can recharge the system and it leaks out under the dash. Is this the evaporator or a seal. Do the stop leak products work in this type of situation? I will try the dye and black light this weekend.
I have the same problem with my Focus, except it does not leak out that fast. The evaporator coil probably has a hole in it. I took one out of a used car and found a bunch of leaves up against it which precipitated oxidation and its failure. The connections for the coil are just outside of the firewall. If you are thinking about changing the thing yourself, the first thing you need to know is that Ford only sells the whole heater assembly - it costs $525, and that it is a seriously painful operation to get it out. You have to remove the WHOLE dash and more. Good Luck.
