How do you know the problem is with your receiver, dryer? I just found that 1 of my 2 schrader valves was leaking, so I replaced the valves, (part cost, about $2) with a Mastercool tool kit, then had my system put on a cooltech machine and recharged for $85. Everything is working fine and the charge is now holding, we'll see after the summer if it's still holding. I checked all of the connections around my receiver / dryer and didn't see any evidence of a leak, the bolts were in tight.

Had the car tested using dye. Was able to see the yellowish color leak near the piece that looked like a bolt on the botton of the drier(not sur exactly what it is). Why do you ask? Is this a rare problem or something?

Thank you

One of my friends here told me that those bolts that hold on the receiver dryer can loosen up over time and they need to be re-torqued, mine seemed tight when I checked them. You might want to re-torque yours, then change your schrader valves, could be a cheap fix...
