This question is too broad. If it is a refrigerant leak it is most likely in one of the 2 coils. It could also be in the line set wherever the copper lines were joined with couplings and elbows. It is also possible that the line set has been punctured with a nail during construction or home improvement.

The answer should seem obvious... you have a leak. It could be anywhere in the system, which is unfortunate for you. You'll probably need a tech to come and do a leak test on your system.

Why would a 1998 Geo Metro air conditioner blow warm air?

You probably have a leak. You should take it to a mechanic, have the system inspected to locate and fix the leak and then recharge the system. By doing so you will be a responsible citizen of Earth, respecting the environment and your fellow animals on this polluted but ultimately cleanable planet. You will probably just go to your local automotive store, buy a can of refrigerant and recharge the system without plugging the leak. After all, repairs and expensive and who the heck wants to go to all that trouble? Have you seen how hot it is?!

How do you add freon to a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero?

The 1999 Oldsmobile Alero does not have Freon in the A/C system. It contains R134 and not Freon which is R12. As I am sure you do not have the proper equipment to recharge the system plus the fact it is illegal to add refrigerant to a system with a leak, until the leak is repaired, take it to a professional and have the leak repaired. You have a leak or you would not need to add refrigerant.

How often should you have a home air conditioning unit recharged?

Whether the leak is miniscule or not is not the issue. If your system is leaking refrigerant, you must have it repaired. Any technician that puts refrigerant in a leaking system and does not identify the leak is not worth keeping. Answer is, since it is a sealed system, if the unit is losing coolant there is a problem, there is a leak. However, as a practical matter and since the leak may be miniscule, having your system checked every couple of years is not a bad idea.

Evapoaration emission system leak on Jeep?

Well if that is the code you are getting when using a scan tool , it means there is a leak somewhere in the fuel/evap system. To actually pinpoint the leak, you would have to do a "smoke test" to see where the actual leak is taking place. That type of test really needs to be done by a mechanic that has the equipment to do it.

How do you fix the air conditioner on a 1977 camaro?

It depends on what is wrong with it. It probably has a freon leak. Add some freon, and listen for a leak. Always charge the system through the low side of the system. If you don't hear a leak, then add the required capacity, and the unit will last through the summer, if there is not a component failure. The best way to check the system is with air conditioner pressure gauges.

What are the signs of a leaking intake manifold?

Leaking antifreeze? An exterior leak would show up with a puddle on the ground. An interior leak would show up in your engine oil with a milky goop on the dipstick or under oil cap, not a good thing.
