Attempted to put some freon in the car today and found the port to be leaking badly on thr black canister. Do i have to replace whole canister? TIA

Make a solution of soapy water. .. The soap-ier the better. .. Put the solution in a small squeeze bottle... soap up all joints and lines with the system running. .. look for the bubbles and you will have a better idea of the extent of your leaks. ..


The leak very well may be a deteriorated o ring or seal. ..

Its leaking AT the port where you fill with freon on the black canister on the passenger side. I was asking do I have to replace the entire canister, or just that nipple portion?  Thanks

It's a schrader valve Phil. Replace it with the right one and you may be able to do nothing else.
And remember, when dealing with children, silence may be golden but duct tape is silver.

It's a difference between just replacing the stem vs the whole valve isn't it?

Only asking because I found a tool that allows you to replace the stem without losing refrigerant, but I'm not 100% sure if it'll fit my car or not
