    Well we found the leak the O ring was bad. shot 16oz of freon in it..blew cold. Started it back up and was blowing hot again. It has us scratchin our heads... The temp control switch was turned a few times, we turned to the hot position started blowing cold. Took knob off and turned it to cold it stayed cold, My friend seems to think it some sort of door problem or in the Temp switch. [email protected] Thanks Peva!!!!!!!

    I suggest you add some PAG-46 oil to it also since it has lost the charge a couple of times. When refrigerant leaks out, you loose some oil with it. If the system gets low in oil, the compressor will fail. If you don't have any idea how much oil to put in and you've had to charge it twice, I'd go with about 3 ozs. Might be a little more than it needs - but, although way too much can be bad, I'd rather have it a little more than a little less than the recommended amount (which is a total of 5 ozs.). I've gone with that philosophy with my two Concordes, and it has worked out fine.

    Is the temperature gage indicating no more overheating (should *always* be below the halfway mark)? Do you know that the fans are now operating properly?

    Check that the belt that runs the compressor is still on and tight, not slipping.

    If the belt is on, can you see the compressor operating - meaning, is the clutch engaged? Do you only see the outer part (the pulley) of the clutch rotating with the belt, or is the center part also rotating? The center part is connected to the compressor shaft, so if it's not turning, your compressor is not running.

    If you determine that the compressor is not running, there could be several possible causes, one common one being that the charge is too low, which would indeed be an indication of a leak.

    So let me know if the coolant temperature gage is behaving, if your fans are operating properly, if the compressor belt is on and tight, and if the compressor is running or not, and we'll go from there.
