I did not. Hey, I'm no mechanic! Okay so the compressor has it's own oil, I will ask the dealer if they checked that to see if it had lost oil. Also, please note that when I bought the car at the end of May, it was completely out of refridgerant. The used car dealer took it to a mechanic and I think they just barely sprayed a little r134a in there, just to get it running so I'd buy the car. I am positive he did not fill it, not by a long shot. So it may not be a massive leak, it might be just that only a tiny bit had to leak to make it stop working.
At the dealer, they diagnosed the a/c as described in my earlier post, and they put two cans of refridgerant in. I would certainly hope that they'd know to add oil also if it was needed, but I'll call and check with them. thanks!
I had said this in another thread, but the place I bought it from was pretty shady. I was tired of looking at dozens of these cars and I liked this one so I took a chance. But, back to my point, I overheard the salesman telling the mechanic to "only put 10 dollars-" and I assumed he was being a cheap prick and only barely topping off the refridgerant.
