Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi Melissa, Good morning! Unfortunately, there is not any sort of chemical that you can add to the system that will stop a leak in the Condenser. The Condenser is located under the hood, mounted to the back of the Radiator. It's design is metal coils that circulate and cool the A/C refrigerant. Due to this metal coil design and the fact that the system is under vacuum, makes it tough for any sort of chemical to "take hold" and make a complete seal. Unfortunately, it will need to be replaced. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news here!
