                                        Would it be advisable to change an ac pulley only or the entire compressor. The pulley is very noisy.

                                              All stop leaks are 90% similar anyway. They all work or don't the same way. I laugh that you care about a brand. You have fixed enough systems to know when they will work well.

                                                          I think he's basically quoting the other mechanics about how leak sealers will destroy the car.

I heard it leaking and turned the air off so I didn’t damage anything and I got a new one and vacuumed it down and refilled it with oil and R134A ammonia and it works perfect with 180k miles on it and it’s a turbo Chevy Cruze. Can’t blame the leak on Chevy either I deliver food in the hills of eastern Ky so lot of really reallly bad drive ways so I have hit something or it was done when a old lady side swiped it few Months earlier but I think it was rock in a driveway
