    Hey guys,

    I was getting my truck ready for my brother to take my truck camping. I looked at the radiator and i saw oil around the Air Conditioning hose and it collected dirt with oil around it. Anyone else have this leak? I'm going have the dealer fix it when I take it in for a 5000 mile oil change since it has the Toyota Care warranty.


    I'll post some pics up when my truck comes back.

    It's just an O ring, pretty easy to replace yourself and get recharged for around $50. I bet the dealer charges you at least $5oo.

    Op stated he had a 2011 A/C issue, so he will be under warranty, but you may be right on with the problem he is having..
