Where's the freon going?

I have a 2000 TJ which has developed a freon leak. I can charge up but within two days it's gone. I have put the UV dye in but cannot see any leaks on the compressor or other fittings. Does anyone have suggestions what or where to look for the leak?

Get some UV goggles or a sniffer. If it's leaking that much in two days, it must be a pretty good size leak. Did you follow it all the way back to the evaporator?

I"ve checked everywhere in the engine compartment although I really can't see the condenser lines wherte they attach to the condenser. Is there somewhere in the inside I need to check? How can you check the evaporator?

Had a bad leak on my son's cavalier. It was from the compressor seals. Took a while to find, but that is where it was from. Good luck.

It's the evap. That is very common leak for tj. And it's
in the dash. Pain in the as. Get a good sealer about 30bucks not the cheap **** and put it in. It will work on it.
