sometimes you can find the leak with some dishsoap and water in a spraybottle, it sounds like its fast enough you should get a good bubble indication. squirt around all the fittings the condensor, etc

I was missing a couple of tools so I couldn't remove the condenser or radiator from the car. I was able to spray some soapy water on the side facing me of the condenser. There wasn't any bubbles coming out from the side facing me how ever on the other side facing the radiator I saw a lot of bubbles. I'm not sure if this is due the fan sucking air through the radiator.

I hope I am doing it the right way. Please advise.

Fill system, spray the compressor body at the seams with dish soap water mix. GM compressors are bad for leaks.

alot of the time you dont have to have the engine and a/c on to see the leak there kindof fighting you as to be able to hear the leak and the fan may may cause trouble
