Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My compressor leaks when few days after i top the gas. My car factory fitted A/C system was attended to. I changed the compressor and top the gas, it leaks away again. An A/C technician said the condenser must have been oversized when it was changed (actally stolen by the mechanic under pretence).
