Where is my freon leaking from?

Asked by Oct 13, 2015 at 03:27 PM about the 2012 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2012 Ford Explorer XLT, I've had to take it to Ford 3 times because the Freon is leaking somewhere but they are unable to find a leak even after putting dyes in the system. What could be the issue?  Where is my Freon going?

the dealer cant find a leak???hummm sounds about right...IS IT UNDER ANY WARRENTY STILL??? IFIT IS ITS UNDER THE DASH.... EVAPORATOR


If the leak is inside the dash (evap) they will never see it. I would suspect they would use a digital gas detector to check the vents for gas, but who knows. If it's warranty work, I'd keep bringing it back to the dealership. They are reimbursed little for warranty work, and if the vehicle keeps showing up, they may get on the ball. Might also try calling the Ford Service Rep. and get them involved.
