>> Dear Fellow Listers,
>> I have '96 850, with an apparently leaking A/C system. I began to have
>> weak cooling a few months ago, so I charged it up with about 3 cans of
>> R-134, with good results.
>> Now, it's time to recharge again, since the same symptoms are
>> re-appearing. Tonight, I bought 3 cans of R-134a, differing as follows:
>> - One can is just straight R-134a
>> - Another can is "high mileage" R-134a, with "leak sealer". The text on
>> the can reads: "Interdynamics High Mileage Refrigerant 134a includes
>> Anti-Wear and Lubricant restoring additives, designed to achieve
>> smoother and quieter performance, protect against wear and extend the
>> life of a frequently used or older AC system. The leak sealer included
>> will seal most leaks (usually located in rubber components), except
>> those larger defects requiring mechanical repair".
>> - The last can is 134a with UV Leak Check. Note: This dye is certified
>> to meet SAE J2297 for R134a and PAG lubricants. Ultraviolet leak
>> detection dyes should not be used unless they are expressly endorsed by
>> the A/C system and/or vehicle manufacturer or meet the requirements of
>> SAE J2297.
>> The manufacturer of this dye is Genetron.
>> Which refrigerant can be used? All of them? Only some, but not in
>> combination with others? Do I endanger the system with either the dye or
>> sealer refrigerants?
>> Please hurry with cool answers, as it's hotter than Iraq here.
>> Thanks.
