    Since having it serviced it’s like ice. Hoping it holds through the heat for the next month or so. If I do fix the line myself, I’m waiting for the fall. Because of all that’s going on I probably won’t be going back to my office for a long time so I will have more free time to work on it.

    I need to get under there and see just what I’m dealing with. When the truck was on the lift I could see where the die leaked out but that just gave me a general area.

    I will do that next time, I fell for the ones on ebay last time. There was a pin hole near the back and that tubing went from the front all the way to the back and it was put in before they put the body on. It's been 5 years and still holding pressure. Just a new tubing was $1,000 plus draw down and refill.

    Hi everyone, not sure with what you're dealing with (diameter of this line, or if it's a straight length) but here's an image of a a/c line splice. It's made by dorman and they have different sizes.

    Mine was something like that but Dorman is high priced nowadays, look in Ebay. Next time I think I will just cut the line and use a flare fitting like described above.

    Has everyone forgot there is refrigerant stop leak? It will work on small Leaks.

    I do my own refrigerant work on my vehicles but I would try stop leak first. I've had it work a few times.

    My mechanic is as bald as Telly Savalas and said that stop leak works about as good as all the “regrow hair” treatments he’s looked at over the years. Personally I’m not opposed to go that route just haven’t heard much positive feedback on it. Same goes for radiator stop leak and engine as well.

    StopLeak works great in microholes in things like the evaporator and condenser, but sucks on any holes that are actually big enough to see.

    It didn't work on my pinhole so I spliced it.
