comment How to recharge AC using booster from auto parts store?
Stop leak compounds have a bad reputation and I avoid them, though I have no personal experience with them. I don't think I'd use them unless the whole system was about to be written off, say a suspected slow leak at the evaporator where the cost benefit analysis did not justify ripping into the dash to replace it.

@Potatoswatter Yeah, I've had the valve on one of these break on me. Though I've got one that has survived several cans. It can be handy to have an extra hose around so you can have more than one can open at a time. Sometimes you need some R134a with UV dye or oil.

@Potatoswatter Agreed. You'll eventually use the whole bottle, though, unless the system is repaired. You wouldn't be adding r134a unless there was a leak. The quality on the gauge and hose isn't going to be that great, but likely good enough for more than one use.

@Potatoswatter If you save the hose, you can use it with another can.
