Scotty Kilmer: How To Fix Small AC Refrigerant Leaks On Your Car

venj zamoras: hi sir whats the problem or common cuase car not so cold ac

mohunney: Hey Scotty Kilmer weren't you meant to put pag oil into the system about 100ml every time you regas the system so the system doesn't dry and seize the compressor??? your video showed you only putting a bit of pag oil on the O-rings but not into the system 

poop: ok this is on a 1996 ford ranger 2wd . think it's going to be lines? kind of pricy.

Vanboneio \ | commentary gaming channel | /: Man i swear. today's car company's are so cheap! they used to use metal bumpers. Now they use PLASTIC BUMPERS!? What has today's vehicle industry gone to, what a shame.

Elan Bender: thanks i tok all my tools to try start motor with new fuses a/c pump water pump the idiots at the shop dosent know what a circit breaker or a fuse is so i got the ac on full and started it it rund the comp tryed to turn but if it was on a 1998 pontiac firebird where do i stick the bypass 

Havak37: I just found your video's today, and this might seem crazy, but I think I am in love with you. Thanks for all the work you put into your video's

Mylo Xyloto: Scotty, what AC leak kit are you using and where did you get it?

Jesus Rodriguez: I have a 1996 Mercedes c280 I'm trying to add a pro a/c on it but I can't fine the low compressed so I could start adding the a/c

NiL Kumar: Hey scotty, really enjoy the videos you make and they are really helpful. My car blew cool air when i regased it for like a month and then it just stopped, so i went to the guy who did it and checked for any leaks using a pressure test and it wasn't leaking, he took out the gas and regased it and once again it worked for a month then stopped again... What could be the reason for this?

WolfmanZX: Ok, i wanna chance my condenser (and, why not, the receiver/drier too) on my 99 mazda protege. I still have refrigerant in the system. Do i have to recycle the refrigerant? 

Matt W: Scotty, I've got a couple of A/C leak questions...My truck has had a leak somewhere in its A/C system since I got it almost six years ago. The first two times I got the system charged, the charge lasted 14 months and then it began to short cycle. This past time when I got it charged, though, was only two months ago, and it began to short cycle yesterday, and the air is nowhere near as cold as it should be. Here's the weird part, though: Every time I've had it charged (and it's been at 3 different shops), I've been told that the system held a vacuum for 15 minutes or more. I'm kinda getting sick of this cycle. I know the refrigerant is leaking out somehow because each charge isn't lasting as long as it should (especially the most recent one). Each of the shops I went to was a reputable one (based on online customer reviews on things like yelp, google, etc.), so I highly doubt they were lying to me about the vacuum holding. What would cause an A/C system to be able to hold a vacuum adequately and still leak so quickly? Kinda puzzling for me. Just a couple other important things...the compressor was replaced about a year ago due to my old one having a worn clutch and no aftermarket clutch the shop could find would match the rest of the pulleys (the one we did try began to shred the fan belt!). Not sure if it was a rebuilt compressor or brand new one, but I highly doubt that would be the culprit. It is suspicious, though, that the time a charge lasted has shortened so dramatically since I got that new compressor put on. Any thoughts on that?

Trentaur: Your videos are always killing me! Good videos!

atif B: how did you vacume air out of condenser ?? what port needs to attach ?? before changing condenser must have to empty system and if you did not do ?? trying to do on my 1999 Buick Regal LS..

transformer889: scotty, I bought a new AC compressor for 87 Toyota, the compressor does not come with a manifold, the old manifold is all corroded and pitted so is not usable , I have done a lot search on the net to find a new manifold but looks like no body carries it, what to do ? any suggestions

G Zuk: If you're in the NY area stop by and give a hand with this 2006 town and country leak I cant find. I hate these cars

Larry M: Scotty. Could you do a video on what gas additives are worth using, if any? Also, please talk about what precautions one should take when owning an RV that sits most of the year. Thanks!

fordwindsor351: Do you still need to hook up an vacuum pump after replacing a rear evaporator?

lathesh kumar: well I have chryser 300 m. recently while turning on ac Its started giving kind of woosh sound n gradually cooling had gone down. so I checked with the mechanic and he refilled refrigerant (not by your way) and the cooling is back. But after a week the same issue, and i found out that cold air blowing on driver side and bit warm on the passanger side. cooling is not that good too. Please help me to solve the problem.

Frank Frankerson: Omg, This man is the heckler from Happy Gilmore!!!, I've always wondered where he was today. Nice to know that celebs will do there own car work. Thank you for your services.

Jeffrey Park: Hey scotty when adding the uv leak detector to an empty system do you need to completely recharge the ac and let it run or do you only need the one can of uv stuff?

טכנאי מזגנים בישראל: Great technique!

roon demahom: Excellent presentation. Explanation very short & sharp & straight to the point. Easy to understood theory & practical. I liked your way of tutorial, slow & calm. Double thumbs up to you & a big thank you for your very useful info & tips. You are one of Professor Genius Sir David Einstein of modern advanced of mechanical engineering. (:-)

deltafox399j: scotty clean your freaking car

rax188: You don't want to use pag oil! Its hydroscopic and absorbs moisture! You have to use mineral oil, leaned that in my havoc class

Chamblizi The All Mighty!: hey scotty i just brought a new ignition switch its a 4 post and my original was 3 post. i hooked it up as shown before and woke up this morning with a dead battery.... why did that happen?

UGotMalk: but i dont understand..when you took that off why didnt the freon leak out?

Mike Petrowski: AC Refrigerant Certificate or License, is required here to purchase refrigerant, the old refrigerant must be recycled (expensive machine). The little pressured bottles found in auto part stores are they a solution? I am hesitant putting anything in my AC system.

Scotty Kilmer: @Flatbed12 same as other engines, just has that boost done electronically when the computer tells it to.

havocmia: Have a slow leak on my mazda myself 99 626 I put more freon in it but now 3 months later its starting to blow hot air on and off while I am driving. Is the condenser located in the same place as the toyota you fixed? I want to check mine to see if its the same problem.

smithraymond09029: The vacuum pump was attached to what part of the AC system again?

sicknessjb: Scott, What leak detection kit are you using? Brand wise...

Scotty Kilmer: just replace the hose then, they just bolt off and on. then you evacuate the system and fill it up.

Scotty Kilmer: no one really fixes em, they just replace em. Chinese made ones are cheap enough, but it's a big deal replacing it. Do that, or live without Ac which is free

Scotty Kilmer: @johnkor some places you do, some you don't. Here in Texas, anyone can buy R134a, it's sold in stores, even wallmart.

moofushu: Scotty how much uv leak dye do we put into the system? Also, where is that graveyard located? That's the coolest thing I've ever seen!

neovirtuality: Great video!

johnkor: how to convert from R 134 to works on R 12 any hints ?

Scotty Kilmer: @TheKnifedge many things can make em do that. Start by having the battery and alternator load tested, places like auto zone do that. Pray it's just one of those

bubu8947: Dont you need a licence to buy the refrigerant?

WSmart1: @Davidmex10 Sounds like a heater core leak. From what I understand if you don't change your coolant regularly it can cause corrosion and that might lead to this kind of damage. But a leaks a leak at this point. Probably take Scotty five minutes to repair, but for the rest us maybe two weeks. Be real, be sober.

Chamblizi The All Mighty!: @scottykilmer they stop producing them but i am going to add a rocker panel box in my ranchero so it does not really matter i am going to have controls for everything once i add a nice custom council in the center in my ranchero...

Scotty Kilmer: I've seen some guys try, but most failed. Realize everything is made in china these days and often new ones are 100 bucks or so
