my 2006 PT Cruiser leaks refrigerant, what part need be replaced? Brought it to a mechanic and they had no idea so they added R134a A/A refrigerant with dye. After driving for just approximately 50 miles, no more cold air. Brought it back to mechanic place and they said there's a leak. He started jabbering expensive quotes so I just said let me find someone who can help me save costs. Your attention and response is requested and greatly appreciated. Mahalo, Surfergal Sam of Hawaii

Hard to say where the leak is without using the dye and a black light. Many places where it can leak out. I'd find another local shop that you can trust.

Aloha, Mahalo for responding. Found out both charge port valves and evap core leaking discoverd with UV light.
