I sent an E-mail and photo link Sunday to [email protected] I want to know if your shop can repair the leak at the high side crimp, I'm local. 1994 GMC Suburban AC Compressor manifold, 5.7 liter gasoline with factory rear
air, R134a. Looks like I've got a slow leak in the high side crimp fitting as shown in this photo, see link, and arrow for leaking area; refrigerant low (about 150 psi high reading).

(1) Can this crimp be tightened by your shop, or the end fitting replaced by you
while "on" the vehicle?

(2) If not, do you have a replacement manifold?

No one got back with you form Sunday?

Hard to tell but most times crimping the connection will not help a leak. I'm having Jason or new sales person check on availability on the hose. You are welcome to swing by and I'll try and crimp it.

Rob responded to me Tuesday, thanks. When you say "try and crimp it" do you mean tightening the existing crimp with your tool, with existing refrigerant remaining in?
