Red Angel A/C Stop Leak & Conditioner repairs common leak points in automotive A/C systems. Activated at the leak point only, Red Angel will not crystallize with existing oxygen or moisture in the system. After repair is achieved Red Angel will continue to lubricate and condition working parts.

Product Features:
  • <LI type=disc>Permanent repair for condensers, evaporators, connections hoses, gaskets, and O-Rings <LI type=disc>Contains no solid or particulate matter that will clog an A/C system or harm recovery units <LI type=disc>Activated by airflow only at the leak point
  • Gets reclaimed with oil and will not clog or damage any part of the recovery unit

Does anyone know if this will help my leak? Or has anyone else tried a product like this?

Why hijack my thread on a water leak to post about your A/C refrigerant leak? This is not the appropriate thread for that question.

We recently had a HUGE rainstorm here in the SF Bay Area, and one day whilst driving to work in a full-on downpour, I noticed that water was coming in from the cowl-area and was running along the back-side of my Dash, and then pooling on the passenger side Weathertech floor mat. And I'm talking about enough water to fill a kid's sippy-cup. Everytime I made a left-hand turn or a U-Turn, you could hear a "wooooooosh" sound, and then there'd be a puddle on my passenger side floor mat.

After looking at that PDF you posted, it looks like I've got a lot of work to do to seal this one up.

You might want to sacrifice at least one bull at the local temple, preventatively. I'm not sure the gods look favorably at the hubris of trying to repair Poseidon's works yourself.

I always have the oracle predict any maintencance issues in advance. For instance, I know that I'll need to do another oil change in 3,000 miles.

I have the same issue on my 99
My carpet is completely soaked.....
The previous owner was into car audio.....I found at least 20 drill holes in cab floor.....holes were to hold amps and act as ground.....I ripped all that crap off
I used job weld to seal all the holes
Since I had removed all carpet and seats I decided to sit inside and have my wife use water hose all over while I checked for leaks
Found a big one on fire wall.....he ran a huge power cable for amp and pushed grommet out the way.....water came in......that one was an easy fix......
Now I see the water dripping into the floor right below the speaker on the door
I pull panel off and water is between door and vapor barrier and dripping into cap....like it's going in around the speaker...
OP can you please post the pics again.....I could only see some of them.....the ones with arrows don't show up.....thanks and I hope I cAn also win this battle.....hope stealer ship does not want too much for vapor barriers....is there other material to use.....where did u get that black putty tape from?
Thanks
