Help Find Refurbed System Leak?

eldrijt on Sun April 05, 2009 10:26 AM User is offline

Year: 1993
Make: Ford
Model: Probe GT
Engine Size: 2.5 L
Refrigerant Type: R12
Ambient Temp: 70
Country of Origin: United States

All new orings, new rubber on hoses, rebuilt compressor, new dryer. Didn't leak at all before the repair. Same charge since 93. Repair due to bad clutch and noisy compressor. Made sure gage hoses are sealing by testing.

When I pull vacuum, and close off the valve, it leaks down to zero within just 5 minutes so I expected to hear hissing using piece of hose as poor man's stethascope but no dice. I was maticulous placing orings and used Nylog on all fittings. Any tips on finding the leak?

Thanks,

Jim

That's a large leak and should be able to locate it pretty easy with a pressure in the system. Bigblu would work good for a leak of this nature.
