Ford Mustang: I have a 2010 Ford Mustang. It has a A/C 134a…

Customer Question
I have a 2010 Ford...
I have a 2010 Ford Mustang. It has a A/C 134a refrigerant leak. I ran a dye through the system and couldn't find any signs of a leak when looking under the hood. It wasn't until I looked underneath the car, when I saw, with the black light, the dye on top of the oil pan and running down the side. In my Hanes manual it talks about a port being close to that region. Do you know where the leak maybe coming from?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
