The quick fix stuff is available everywhere. Until you are an educated consumer, use just the plain refrigerants and know both high and low pressures. The season is coming for Northern climates. Be warned that some of the snake oil can cost you mega thousands!

Feel free to ask away with your questions with as much info as you can provide. Stay safe here, there is danger with A/C, Tom

Hi Tom,

What are these snake oils you are talking about?

Snake oil is kind of slang for the magic stuff that is out there. Some of the sealers, enhancers, "O" ring conditioners will VOID parts warranties if detected and can possibly ruin a system. It harms recovery equipment too so if used please mark the car. This is sold everywhere and doesn't seem to put fair warnings on the packaging about potential harm, or that it can and will void warranties as already said, hope that helps to explain,
