Year: 2007
Make: Mazda
Model: 6
Engine Size: 2000
Refrigerant Type: R134a
Country of Origin: Saudi Arabia

I have a minor leak in my A/C system (System leaks about 150 grams in 6 months) , but I can not find any trace of leaks in pipes, all pipes are dry, even no single spot of oil. I used sound leak tester but nothing, compressor dry, condenser dry, I don't think from evaporator because I know when evaporator leaks you will have some odors inside. my questions are as follows:
1- may refrigerant leak from a pipe without giving any trace of lubricant oil
2- there is in the market a product from cliplight called: 976KIT SUPER SEAL TOTAL AUTO with this specification: Searches out and seals leaks instantly in any automotive A/C.
Easily injected into the A/C system Continues to check and seal leaks for years to come.
New Benefits & features:
Includes Dry R to eliminate moisture, which creates a super-highway in the A/C system and ensures the long term stability and complete distribution of the dye.
Prevents acid formation which extends the life of A/C system components.
UV dye to locate leaks that occur which may be too large for Super Seal to effectively repair
is it safe to be used? it seems it has some added Dry agent to protect inside cycle and to seal any porosity or leak

Do you have an electronic leak detector? you need to check the front seal on the compressor with one, don't use sealers unless you want to change the whole system down the road.. Use a UV light with the glasses to check for leaks also.. A dark place is always best when using the light.. Yes, you can have a leak where no oil comes out, but use the right equipment and you should find it..hope this helps..
