I haven't looked at the connections yet as they're kind of buried and I just had lung surgery a couple weeks ago so I won't be jacking up the car to get in there for a few days or so. Since I have a SAP front bumper now I can see the condenser perfectly clear and I can say it looks fine and the connections on it are clean so if there is a leak it's not there. The A/C worked just fine before the engine got replaced and I watched the guy who put my new engine in evac the system and refill it; he even taught me about what he was doing. We tried it at the shop and it seemed just fine and I didn't really use it much that summer because it was August by that point. That was last summer. Now it doesn't work at all. So yeah, I'm sure there's a leak.
(oh, and the compressor only has like 20k on it)
No, my avvy isn't a B&W photo....meet Jaz, the car that makes any pic look monochromatic!
