O'Reilly's tech used the gauges, bled the system, and filled freon to get a reading of 45. Don't think it was checked well for leaks...?
Expert:  Roy replied 5 months ago.

you cannot bleed the system as he did. the only way to do that is to remove all freon, evacuate the system and re charge.

remember they are parts people not techs.

a leak check is needed to be done by someone who knows the proper way to perform this.
