Re: [DML] R134 Freon @ $6.40 Per Can

You may need to replace your hoses. As they get old they leak the gas right through the hose. I replaced mine a couple of years ago and the AC has been working pretty good since. Got the new ones from John Hervey because you can replace the AC hoses with his without removing the body from the frame. Also, the valves tend to leak at the back of the compressor. Try metal caps with an O ring to seal it shut. (Thanks David)
