    I must have a leak, has anyone used anything that works really well to help detect leaks?

    if you have every had it charged at a shop and they put dye in it a UV light will help make the dye stand out

    Yeah, you should be able to pick up a recharge kit for fairly cheap. The last one a friend of mine got came with a pen light that detects the dye in the recharge stuff.

    yeah the pen light usually has a colored lense that just picks up the dye as it seaps out , just gotta be sure that you go over every bit of the cooling system.

    I had an extra 1/3 can or so of recharge for the a/c and the rear air works perfect but the front air is still warm, the system is full after the recharge, so now am wondering if one of the componets is shot for the a/c
