The reason for the 3 stars is that this system is awfully messy. You need to first prime the tube that connects the syringe to the ac low-side port. You stick a small straw into the syringe, draw up a small amount of dye, remove the straw, screw on the tube and then squeeze the dye into the tube. Well, when you remove the straw, the dye drains out of it all over...I wish I'd have left the straw in the bottle of dye. It mentioned leaving it in the bottle to prevent bubbles, but I assumed that was referring to sucking the dye into the syringe.
Next, when putting the dye into the a/c system, the vehicle is on, most likely with the fan running. the small amount of pressure from making the actual connection to the a/c system port, combined with the fan running, blew some of the dye onto the surrounding area. Cleanup is a PITA.
Now I know I've learned a bit from my first experience, so my second will be a bit better, but I'm not sure it can be completely without spillage. I was unable to completely cleanup the dye mess around the port...even with the included cleanup solution.
On the other hand, if all had gone well, when using the UV light in darkness, the UV dye is extremely bright, and I don't believe it could be missed.
I was told that it is better to have the dye in oil and coolant system all the time to be able to diagnoze instantly when leak will develop. I had couple of small leaks into spark-plug bays during cross-country trips which caused car to miss a spark and heavily misfire in the middle of nowhere - scary experience. I cured these leaks by adding additives into the oil on the road.
Now I don't have leaks but don't know which gasket was weak. I wish I had the dye in the system when leak developed so I can find the culprit. I bought extra set of dye (6 bottles in the pack) of the same manufacturer as in this package and adding dye during each oil change now. $6 extra during each oil change to diagnose and estimate $500-$1000 worth gasket job seems to me a small price to pay for 200,000 miles, 11-years old car.
