Default A/C question on my 96 GP

I found the port under the air box...no problems there...
Bought myself a 134a recharge kit...no problems there...

Found it ....Filled it....listened to it all leak out...

I think i hear hissing coming from the top driverside of the radiator?



Make any sense to anyone?
P.*. FYI...the A/C has not worked since I bought the car in March...

thanks!
Jeff

Yup, you have a leak somewhere in or at the condenser. Got to find the leak and repair it... I would take it to a professional - you need to make sure you get old residuals out of the system.

Find the leak first... It may be at a fitting, in which case you only need to replace the o-ring there. If it'* in the condensor itself then you may have to replace it.
