Gentlemen last October I was getting an ac leak in my ac system I injected dye and looked for the leak.Unfortunately a few years earlier i had injected dye to find another leak and had fixed that leak. The problem I am having trying to dist - inguish old dye leaks from new dye leaks. The question i am asking is there newer dye out that gives off a different color then the old dye and if there is where can I purchase it. Or is there some thing I can purchase to remove the old dye residual color and start afresh. Thank you.

Your standard spray on engine cleaner should remove most of the old dye.
