Auto - Service is the Search the List category to find well-rated and reviewed vendors for this - pretty much any full-service auto repair shop can handle this - but I certainly would not trust it to a quick lube or tire or muffler place. Of course so can dealers - and of course if still under warranty get it repaired per the warranty terms - at a Ford dealer if under a Ford warranty.


Also - the refrigerant carries the air conditioner compressor oil, which it has to have to stay lubricated and not burn itself up. So - running the car with the refrigerant leaked out will destroy the compressor unless this is a very old car, because modern cars run the air conditioner initially at startup to clear the prep the air system - and also when the defroster is used it runs to dehumidify that air before before it is warmed to defrost the windows. So - this is a get it fixed immediately thing.


And be prepared for a bite - might only be a couple hundred $ if a leaking connection, but if the coil itself is leaking then can run $500-1000 commonly - sometimes more, especially on some very tightly packed engine compartments where a number ofother components and hoses have to be disconnected to get at the coil to fix/replace it.
