Your car’s AC system is divided into two portions: the low-pressure side and the high-pressure side. The low-pressure side includes everything between the system restriction (either an orifice tube or expansion valve) and the compressor. On the other hand, the high-pressure side includes everything between the compressor and the restriction. Metal lines and rubber hoses connect the components within the AC system. Refrigerant travels through this maze of tubing. Often, the hose between the compressor and condenser is referred to as the high-pressure, or discharge, hose.
Is your AC system blowing warm air? Then you may have a leaking AC high-pressure hose. If enough refrigerant escapes from the hose, the AC system will cease to work properly.
If you’ve got a really good eye – or professional test equipment – you may be able to spot a refrigerant leak at the AC high-pressure hose. In some instances, there may be either green-colored trace dye or a build-up of PAG oil near the leak. What you can see depends on the severity of the leak and whether your car has dye added to its AC system.Get a Quote 1-Year | 12,000-Mile Warranty
If your AC high-pressure hose fails, your AC won’t work well. And that can be a real bummer on a hot day. So, why not get the problem fixed as soon as possible?
