LEAK DETECTION TYPES

There are several A/C leak detection tools available.

NOTE: There are specific leak dye kits for the R-134a and R-1234yf A/C systems. Make sure you are using the right kit for the system you are working on.

 

REFRIGERANT GAS LEAK DETECTOR

A refrigerant leak detector can sense refrigerant gas leaking from the A/C system.

  • It is a good alternative if the vehicle cannot accept leak dye.
  • The system must be pressurized to use this type of leak detector. NOTE:
  • Refer to the Acura Tool and Equipment Program for the most current, approved tool.
  • Refer to the tool manufacturer’s information for correct usage.

 

ULTRASONIC LEAK DETECTOR

An ultrasonic leak detector listens for leaks in the A/C system.

  • It is a good alternative if the vehicle cannot accept leak dye.
  • The system must under vacuum to use this type of leak detector. NOTE:
  • Refer to the Acura Tool and Equipment Program for the most current, approved tool.

Refer to the tool manufacturer’s information for correct usage.

 

LEAK DYE DETECTION

Dye is injected into the A/C system. System leaks are visible with an ultraviolet light.

NOTE:

  • Only the dyes mentioned in this bulletin from Tracer Products (Tracerline®) are approved for use in Acura vehicles.

Other dyes contain solvents that may contaminate the system’s refrigerant oil, leading to component failure.

  • Adding excessive amounts of dye can lead to compressor damage and failure.
  • Leak dye TRPTP9811P12 has been replaced by TRPTP1108P12. Continue to use TRPTP9811P12 until your dealership stock runs out.
