How can i remove sealant in the a/c system.

Depends what type of sealant was used. The type that just expands o-rings can be flushed out using the Hecat Flush and at a minimum the Hecat Pulsator in my opinion. The type that hardens, well when you find the answer beside component replacement let the rest of us know the trick!

I don't know what type was put in there. The owner told me some jack ass did it. I just want to help him but before i put my self in trouble am looking for help. Some have to learn the hard way

In that case I let them know what they are up against going in! Pull the components and flush as quickly as you can. In the end if you can still blow through them good chance it was just the o-ring sweller! If the components start to harder inside well you did not install the "miracle cure" in the first place!

What that ? 134a leak stop. Owner said that is what was put in there. Will that damage my equipment's ? Can i reclaim the gas ? Will opening the system cause any problems?

Only thing I can do here is tell you what we do and that is no refrigerant is reclaimed in our machines which has any sealer present. We use the Neutronics sealer detector and if refrigerant fails we let the customer find a way of removing the refrigerant. The way I look at this issue is we did not suggest a sealer be installed and will not risk our equipment.
