    Default 2013 limted, ac leak location?

    Bought the Arctic freeze freon/sealant and it blew cold for a couple weeks, my next step will be physically looking for evidence of the leak (I didn't get the can with the dye ) before either using dye or buying a detector, I wonder where others had ac leaks in their 1st Gen 200s? Condensor? A valve?

    Putting a sealant into an A/C system is usually death for the components. It often clogs the expansion valve or evaporator. If it still engages and you have a leak, take it to an A/C shop that has a 'sniffer' that can detect where the leak is.
    My wife has a 2012 that she bought new, now 78K miles. I bought a 2011 last fall, now 114K miles, both work fine on original parts.

    I agree...Stay away from "quick fixes"... Find where the leak is and address it properly...

    If you are doing it yourself another cheap way to locate them is using a sniffer off of ebay...They do work quite well...
