I got my UV light and tested it tonight, unfortunately I could not find any specs of refrigerant. Where are the common places? I checked the hoses, the condenser, the clutch and the hoses. I might just take it to a garage and ask them to find it. When it was working the AC wasn't left on any longer then 10 minutes and then the vehicle was left off and alone for about 4 hours when I came back none in the tank! I am not sure if the dye had run through the entire system so maybe that is why the dye doesn't show? I am not entirely how the AC system works so do forgive me if that sounds silly.
If anyone can show any pictures on places to look as I am not entirely sure where all the hoses etc and connected to look for areas of interest, on and I checked the condenser joints. I did look at night with the bumper on in daytime bumper off and not sure if that effects the visibility of the dye.
Appreciate any advice! Need to get this sorted!
