Friend! if your car tier puncture, what you will do? First arrest leak and then filling air, is not it?
Same way, when there is leak in a/c system, call repairman to find out leak by pressurizing nitrogen and arrest it. Then vacuum and do gas charging. This is the permanent solution and also cheaper cost than going with replacing another unit. Helpful advise?

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.

Can i fix my air conditioner hose? i was told there was a leak in it

If there was a leak you need to find the point of leak first so as to recitfy and then the gas must be refilled. In some cases it cannot be the joints or the hose but can happen in the cooling coils or the condenser. If so you will need to release gas and then use a pressure system to check for leak - such equipments- comrpessor- is need to check the leaks at high pressure or else the gas filling will be a wasteful operation.

When I turned on my Acura TSX A/C, it was blowing hot air, so I took it into the dealership. The customer service rep called me later and told me that I had a leak in my A/C hose that was causing freon to...

I cannot dispute the price the dealership quoted.
That said, a leaking A/C hose cannot be repaired. It needs to be replaced. These are vehicle specific parts so can get expensive. It also costs to vacuum the A/C system and refill with the the system
with freon.
The system ran out of freon because of the leaking hose, put in more freon with the leaking hose it all leaks back out.
So in effect the repair is a new hose, and a refill.
Hope this helps settle your confusion,

How much work is it to fix a leak. it is spraying out anti freeze up by the motor. It looks like maybe the where the seal may go

If the leak is a hose, not a big deal. Drain antifreeze disconnect hose, instal new hose, refill antifreeze. If the leak is a water pump also not a big deal, same procedure.
If the leak is in the radiator, a bit more complicated. Radiator can be replaced or repaired by a radiator shop.
If leak is coming from somewhere else on the engine, could be more serious, like a gasket leak. If this happened you would get fluids mixing ( oil/gas)
Good luck. A Haynes manual is a good investment for your car.

Water dripping from internal unit of J.B.S. split system air conditioner

This can be due to three reasons. The water drain pipe is block. Which can be sucked clean with wet/dry vacuum cleaner. The drain pipe behind the unit is not sloping downward away from the unit. Or the coils of the internal could be iced up. If this is the case the unit should be switched of until the ice is completely melted and switch the unit on again. If the copper pipes leaving the the condenser unit outside is starting to freeze up, the unit is short of gas. Call a A/C company to refill the gas and search for possible gas leaks.

Gas fumes inside and out side the car when it is hot outside

Try having the area that the hose was disconnected from steamed cleaned, or go to a car wash wash and spray the area. It might help, that is if you already haven't done so.
