Was just informed the car passed the vacuum test and there’s no visible refrigerant leak to the naked eye.

I was given two scenarios...either there’s a minor leak that can’t be seen as I said (although I’m unsure how likely that is - hence why I am here)

OR

The mechanic who did the compressor replacement just didn’t fully recharge the system the last time.


I will be returning in about 500 miles as my mechanic added a dye to the system to see if the potential leak can be located.

Curious for your thoughts folks...thank you very much!


1. No leak under vacuum USUALLY indicates that there won't be a leak under pressure, but not always.
2. UV dye and a check for leaks in 500 miles is a good idea.


Much appreciated. Hopefully it’s behind me. We’ll see in a couple weeks.
