A/C problem. No detectable leaks. Where else can the car leak Freon, what might need to be replaced?

Asked by Jul 05, 2013 at 01:32 PM about the 2007 Toyota Camry SE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Refilled Freon twice since I bought the Car in November 2012.  It is a temporary fix.  
Eventually it only blows hot air, and Freon levels again are super low.  Where else could
there be a leak and what might need to be replaced.  One mechanic says compressor,
another says compressor is fine since it actually blows air well.

A/C compressors don't normally leak, evaporator cores and condensors are more prone to do so (especially condensors, as they can get hit by stuff due to their position in front of the radiator). I'd start off looking at the condensor and then the evaporator, the latter may be tough to check as it sits inside the dash.
