parallel condenser leaking

wirenet on Sat June 28, 2008 3:20 AM User is offline

Year: 1992
Make: honda
Model: accord
Engine Size: 2.2
Refrigerant Type: r134a
Ambient Temp: 85
Country of Origin: United States

I tried to charge up my system with r134a and dye and found I had numerous dye leaks all over the front of my two year old parallel condenser.What do you think would cause this to happen? Also does the compressor discharge line go to the top pipe on the condenser.Could you tell me if this top fitting is a #8 or #6 fitting.

Many things can cause a condenser leak such as manufacturing defect, improper installation, bad mounts, rocks, etc. The inlet port is at the top where gas enters and condensed liquid (heavier) exits at the lower port. I don't think it will be a 1/2" or 3/8" fitting on a Honda.
