Has anyone put some gauges on it to see what pressures it is running while it operates? If it is not leaking, the compressor might be bad. Is the clutch really working? Some diagnostics with a proper set of gauges will tell a lot. The static charge pressure (the pressure in the system when it has not been operating for some time) should be close to the ambient temperature (80 deg. should be something like 80 psi, give or take). Have some more testing done and get back to us.

You sound like my Son's girlfriend......:laugh:

Sorry, but it is pretty apparent that your system is leaking if you have to keep adding R134A to the system. Have they checked your condensor?
I would have to agree. The condenser and even the evaporator can leak. Sounds like you have a pretty large leak.

Sometimes, if it is a large leak, you can put nitrogen into the system and listen for where it is coming out. After that, fix it, install a new dryer, pull a vacuum on the system for a while and recharge and you should be good for a long time.
