Car AC Leak Repair Cost


With any service you’re considering using there are always lots of options and it can be difficult to choose which will be the best one.  Do you go with the cheapest? The Fastest? The one with the most reviews? When it comes to vehicle repairs, the options are just as plentiful which can make car AC leak repair cost worth comparing.

Car AC leak repair costs can also vary significantly based on the repairs you need.  Since most air conditioning systems don’t have a complete array of sensors there are often multiple possibilities for problems that could be producing the symptoms you are experiencing.  While one shop might recommend replacing 1 component, another shop might recommend replacing 2 or 3.

One of the best ways to cut down costs on vehicle maintenance is to make sure you aren’t replacing good parts.  When it comes to your air conditioning system, this might not always be the case. Since it may be impossible to tell which component is bad, it can be more cost-effective to replace them everything at once.  A significant cost of replacing any air condition component is evacuating and refilling the system so it can save money to do any work you need to before refilling the system.

There are some other things that can make car AC repair costs fluctuate that are worth looking into:

  • The cost of parts can vary significantly, it can save to shop around
  • Shop labor rates can also vary so always ask what a shop’s hourly rate is
  • Advanced equipment can really help with leak detection, compressor health, and other diagnostics so it’s important to choose a shop that has the right equipment.

If it turns out you do have a leak in your system and replacing the leaking component doesn’t make sense for your car or your budget, try Red Angel A/C Refrigerant Stop Leak to seal the leak without evacuating the system or replacing any components.

    I’ve been very pleased with your products in the past. Of course I’ll buy them if it becomes necessary in the future.

    I worked for a used car dealer for several years and used a lot of Red Angel with good results as the cars did not come back with AC problems. This spring my daughters Sion had a leak in the evaporator so i put in a can of Red Angel and no problems so far.

      We are happy to hear of the success you’ve had with the Red Angel A/C Refrigerant Stop Leak! Once the product seals, it would be a permanent seal, so you should be good to go at this point. Thank you for the positive feedback.

      Thank you!

      As long as the system isn’t losing more than a pound of refrigerant in a day, and the leak is not compressor related, the Red Angel A/C Refrigerant Stop Leak would be able to seal the leak.

      Thank you!

      Based on your description, we recommend using the Red Angel A/C Refrigerant Stop Leak. Using the product would stop the loss of refrigerant and return the A/C to normal functionality. Add the appropriate amount of R-134a, once Red Angel has been added, to ensure the system is filled to the proper level.

      Thank you!
