The AC on my '96 Dakota sport stopped working due to a leaking core
about 2 years ago. I bought some sealer to try but the instructions
call for the compressor to be running on full when I put the stuff in.
How can i do this when the compressor won't run due to no pressure in
the lines? Also, is there anything else I need to do being it's been
out of service for so long?
Please respond to email address also.
Thanks for any help/advice.
That fact that the system has been dead for a while and has a bad seal
too I woul have the seal repaired and the system evacuated and
recharged. It need to be vacumed down anyway becuae it has been
"open" for so long it may have air and moisture in it too. No quick
fix here sorry.

He means that since the system's been de-pressurized for so long, and able
to absorb moisture, the accumulator, which contains a dessicant to absorb
moisture, should also be changed, because it's probably saturated.
