step 1: start car
step 2: roll your windows all the way down
step 3: drive 60mph



but seriously. top off with recharge with dye. wait a couple days and search with UV light.

Buy dye kit, buy recharge kit. Rechange, add dye. Drive car a few days, look for dye.

Much appreciated guys.

How do you go about fixing the leak if you find it? If it is in a piece of aluminum pipe am I SOL?

If it's a line you replace it. If it's a connection replace the seal/o ring.

Depending on how long it has had a leak, you may need to replace more than just the leaky part.

Almost positive my leak came from my blower install. I had to bend the line and either the was bent too far & cracked (unlikely) or it was rubbing on something & a hole worn in it (likely).

If that is the case, you can get a custom line made.
