Image is hard to see as it's small. What I can see looks like it might be a sealer.

Forgot to mention, we had to run 12 volts to the compressor so we could get gauge readings. Looked like old evidence of a leak at the case halves of the compressor. I recommended he replace the compressor, condenser, accumulator, orifice tube, and flush the evaporator and any lines without mufflers.

The car is a 2000 Cadillac with less than 50,000 miles. It’s a shame stop leak was used on it.
