          Comments about Red Angel A/C Sealer:

          I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am with WELL over 200K miles on it. The A/C went out, I had it recharged, and it was blowing hot air in three days. I had a line replaced under the hood. My mechanic said the connector was leaking. He recharged the system, and again, it emptied in about 3 days. The mechanic recharged it again, added UV, the 134a with stop leak, and also used a sniffer. No leaks were found under the hood. When he put the sniffer into the vent on the dash, it started going off. It was obvious the leak was either the connections or the evaporator, way behind the dash. We have an agreement, when bring my car in, or drop it off after hours with a note for repairs, call me only if he foresees the cost going over $300. When I asked how much it would cost to fix this (my schedule was going to be WAY to hectic for the next couple of weeks to even think about doing it myself) his response was RING RING... times 2. I figured I could deal with 80s and low 90s for a little while. It took about 4 days this time before the hot air started blowing. Well, the temp went unsually high (over 100 degrees), which left me driving around fast, and basting in my own juices.

          When I reached the end of my sanity, I scheduled some time off from work, and started pricing an evaporator at Advance Auto website. Red Angel A/C Stop Leak popped up in my search. I researched the product at various websites, and was shocked to see video of it on Youtube. With all the positive remarks I found, PLUS the money back gaurantee, I figured it definitely wouldn't hurt to try it before losing a few pounds sweating while removing/installing the lower dash and an evaporator.

          A few days before my vacation time would begin, I picked up a bottle of Red Angel from the local Advance Auto store, and went straight to my mechanic. He had never heard of, or used Red Angel before, so it would be a new adventure for us both. He didn't have the oil injector needed to add it properly to the system. His assistant borrowed it, but was out handling a break-down. I had to be at work in an hour. So, since the system was already 'dry', we decided to pull a line, pour it in, pull a vacuum, and recharge the system.

          While I waited, my mechanic did everything stated above, then called me out to the bay to supposedly check the RPM reading on the dash. I opened the door, and cold air enveloped me as my butt hit the seat. My reaction was funny to my mechanic. Honestly.....it felt GREAT!!! The sniffer was silent.

          I was still skeptical for the days that followed. I expected to come out to a hot car, and it stay that way. Well, day 1, 2, 3, 4, week 1, 2, and it is STILL putting out ice cold air. Two days ago I had the A/C checked to see if there was any pressure loss, and/or signs of a leak. My mechanic said everything was good to go! Even the sniffer was still silent.

          This little bottle of SHEER COMFORT kept my wallet was going up in smoke, and some valuable vacation days from being spent doing exhausting car repairs.

          Would I recommend it? I already have, and those that knew about my A/C issues are witnesses. I know of one purchase in FL. One of my old military buddies was having similar issues with his '05 or '06 Grand Prix. I suggested he add a bottle to his car (he had never heard of Red Angel A/C Stop Leak either). I know he bought it because he called from the store to specifically complain about the cost for such a little bottle of product. I asked him to trust me and read the gaurantee. I'm almost sure it worked for him as well. He drove that car to VA and back with the family. I haven't talked to him since the trip, but since he hasn't called to complain about having a 'melt down' during the trip, I suppose all was ok with his car. This saved him from spending extra money on gas to drive his big club cab work truck, or having to rent a car and put his car in the shop while away.

          GREAT PRODUCT! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and keep up the great work!!!

            Comments about Red Angel A/C Sealer:

            I experienced a nagging A/C system freon leak from my 2001 Dodge Intrepid R/T. The leak required a full can of freon applied every two to three weeks. My mechanic informed me that the leak was from the evaporator located under the dash on the passenger side of the car and when the temperature was hot it really messed up the interior of the car with a hard to clean sticky residue.

            I was flabbergasted that the estimate for repairing/replacing the evaporator on my car was over $1,200 from the dealer since my mechanic didn't want the job. I was fortunate that my son is an ASE master certified, auto technician and recommended that I first give the Red Arrow A/C stop leak product a try before laying down that type of cash. I was extremely leery about a fix in a can but agreed to try it even though I'd heard horror stories about permanent and expensive damage to the compressor, drier and other components of A/C systems with traditional stop leak products using metals and solids. My son assured me that this product didn't employ those and wouldn't damage the system and he even volunteered to install it for me. I purchased the aerosol can of stop leak with the low pressure side applicator but for me it proved to be unfriendly in that the applicator leaked so badly when attached to the system it totally vented the content before it could be successfully introduced into the A/C system.

            My son decided to purchase the bottled version of Red Angel A/C stop leak product he'd had some success with which for a diy person also proved to be problematic in that it took someone with an A/C recharging machine to properly install the product. My son first pulled a vacuum on the system, introduced the Red Angel stop leak product into the A/C system and filled it to the recommended pressure with the proper amount of freon.

            But WOW the results were absolutely spectacular. Not only did the Red Angel A/C stop leak product eliminate the leak (over 2 1/2 years ago) but my A/C seems much colder. I saved over $1,100 with this product and would recommend it even if you have to purchase it yourself and then contract with a mechanic to properly install it.

                the red angel a/c stop leak will work for sure if your vehicle can hold 15 inches of vacuum for 5 mins. or 5 inches of vacuum for or 25 mins./so basically if your loseing a pound or more of freon in a day then this will unlikely work for you.But if its a slow leak like the above red angel will definetly seal the leak and it is a permanant repair!!!BoNuS-IF YOU EVER NEED TO EVACUATE YOUR A/C SYSTEMS ITS OK RED ANGEL WILL COME OUT WITH THE OIL AND IS 100% SAFE FOR SHOP EQUIPMENT AND THE VEHICLE-P.S. YOU CAN BUT DO NOT NEED TO GET THE RED ANGEL REMOVED AFTER FIX/ IT CAN STAY IN THE SYSTEM AS A PREEVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

                Take your vehicle and product to a certified repair facility (preferably an a\/c specialty shop)they have the proper injector to get the fluid into the system without removing anything. They will however need to evacuate the system first. Once installed the will know how much freon your system takes and will fill to the proper poundage. If you intend to attempt this yourself, my suggestion is not to use those small recharge cans-you\'ll probably get more air than freon in the system.

                A:

                It depends on how big the leak is, this product is made for small leaks and it is highly recommended to have a professional install this product in the AC line if you do not know the components for your vehicle. This product requires to take apart part of the AC system. If you are still wanting to do it yourself then on our website we have a feature called "Just Answer” link, where we have ASE Certified Technicians who would be more than happy to answer your questions regarding this matter.

                Red Angel will seal leaks in A/C systems that can hold 5 inches of vacuum for 25 minutes or 15 inches of vacuum for 5 minutes. A system that won’t hold 5” of vacuum on the low side for 25 minutes has a leak that is too large to be sealed, and will need a hard part repair.

                For use of this product I recommend taking it to an automotive shop who has the right tools and that way there is no air getting into the ac line which can cause damage.

              • A:

                either have someone that owns a set of AC gauges attach an oil charge cup to the gauges and fill it with red angel and put it in that way. Or you can drain your system, take the line that goes into the condenser off and pour the stuff in that line then reattach the line , vacuum the system then recharge the system. this is about the only way to get it in the system.

                word of warning though you have to have a system that can hold 5 inches of vacuum for 25 minutes or 15 inches of vacuum for 5 minutes.

                so unless you can vacuum your system and monitor it for the vacuum loss your best bet would be take it to a shop that can and also have them add the RED ANGEL in place of 2oz of oil
