Hello, I know i have a small leak in my AC system. had it charged up last year and its lasted about 2weeks

i went to a few places in the GTA to get my AC looked both said cant work on hybrid systems as the Oils are different.

i did a search here and seems like people are using the quick charge kits for there cars to help locate the leak. are these ok on the YF hybrid??

or does someone have a non dealer non crappy tire recommendation for a
shop in Toronto?

Yes, they are correct about the oils. Hybrid is special because it is not a belt driven compressor and is a direct drive so to speak. The oil issue has to do with the electrical aspect and not friendly especially with the high voltages and not being isolated via a belt. So, it is just a matter really of knowing/finding the right/compatible oil. Here is one I found from Interdynamics description ($17 at O-Reilly):

R-134a Hybrid Vehicle Compressor Refrigerant Oil; 7 Oz.;
Specially formulated for Hybrid vehicle R-134a A/C electric compressors
Dielectric formula keeps voltage from leaking to compressor case

thanks for that detail. Had it looked at, seems i need a new condenser. dealer part is like 300$ dammit. i looked at a aftermarket one.
about half the price. i know alot of the parts on these cars are the same as the other sonatas/kia
