Mitsubishi Eclipse AC leak & dealership cannot find the leak. Been in for service 5 times and dye is not showing leak. Any suggestions as to where it can be?

Your leak may not be coming from the outside. The AC has an evaporator tray that catches the humidity pulled from the air in the car drains it to the ground.. Sometimes the drain gets plugged up. Clear the drain and clean the tray. Sometimes that situation is accompanied by a nasty smell.

A dealership fixed my cooling system. I was told it was an airpocket in the system. Now my ac only blows hot air. They keep putting me on hold and its hot outside. any ideas?

if the low side tube is cold while the compressor is working the problem will be on air door module, or one piece of hose from intake manifold go to recirculation door is dis connected, but if he compressor is not working, there is only two reason, even the refrigerant pressure is too high or too low, if low a leak on your system, if too high overcharge or clogged expansion valve or the condenser, if refrigrant is i the right pressure and compressor is not working, check the supply on main switch, ambient temperature sensor, refrigrant pressure sensor and the high pressure sensor, if all ok,. replace compressor

Not cooling

Are the evaporator coils in the freezer frozen up?
The evaporator is located behind the cover in the back of the freezer.
If so this may be a defrost issue.
The adaptive defrost timer may have failed.
This is located in the ref. side inside the front control pannel.

If not then you may have a freon leak.
This would have to be repaired by a qualified technician.

Not cooling in freezer or fridge

first, check the coils under the unit and behind to make sure that the coils are clean. if they are, then make sure the fans are working. there should be one to blow air into the box and one to pull air out of the box. if they are working, and its a frost free model, then it may be stuck in defrost mode. lastly it could be low on refrigrant. If it had a leak, you would find small amounts of oil around the coils or compressor. the dust may even stick to the tubing due to the oil

Coolant reservoir empties and leaks onto the road and radiator is still full. this happens before it enters the radiator

The reservoir has a leak. Remove it, find the leak, and repair it. You can repair the leak with an epoxy sealer that you can purchase at any auto parts store. Mark the leak with a marker and then throughly clean the outside and inside of the container. Apply the epoxy to both sides.

My power steering fluid is leaking. The cars first owner told me that he used to put some leak stop and it worked for 1 month. But I want to fix this problem for good. Help me out please.

There can be many causes for a power steering leak, from loose hose clamps to failed seals inside the steering rack. The whole area needs to be cleaned down thoroughly and the leak source found and whatever the required repair is carried out from there. A power steering specialist is probably your best bet for speed and cost of repair, but you are best to get a few estimates around town and choose the shop that appeared the most helpful and friendly, not necessarily the cheapest.

Hope this helps,
