AC system loses charge
\015 I changed the radiator in a 1996 camaro with a 3.8 engine. Lost the ac chargewhen the lines were disconnected. After reassembling, the ac aws recharged but after a short time losing the freon charge. Is there a gasket/o-ring that is supposed to be in the line to the radiator. I didn't see one when removing lines or reinstalling. I haven't tried a dye checker yet but thought I would ask a question first.\015
Cant recall on 96 if it is o-rings or gasket but defineitly has a seal that is now leaking. remove line,replace seal and use an evac. pump to pull a vacume on system. If it holds a vacume without leaking it will hold a charge and you wont waste your freon testing. Plus you should always evac. system before charging anyway
