Found a AC leak back of 01 windstar..its hot!! help

The AC hose that runs down to the back of the van leaks at the end where it go's from pipe to rubber hose.. the clamped connecter that over laps the rubber hose.. ill attach a pic so you can see what i see.....

this pic is from the back of the windstar.. behind the back tire right/driver

Do i need to replace the long pipe going from front to back AC?

is there a repair kit?

nothing looks old or rusted can it be to much AC pressure?

cold one day next morning not cold.. added more gas, worked for a day

Unless my eyeballs are off, it looks like the hose to pipe crimp has started leaking. Pretty much need to replace it. Unfortunately, if you're not licensed to work DOT refrigerant systems, you probably shouldn't.

Remove the line and find a shop that repairs AC line they should be able to repair it if not you may have to go to Ford buy a whole new line they're not cheap and they're a pain in the b*** to replace after replacing the line you need to evacuate the system and charged with freon
