Forgive my lack of expertise (I'm not a technician). I realise that dye is probably the best way of tracing a leak. But my question is - what can you use to carry the dye around the system? The gas in my system (R12) has dropped so low while the car was unused that there isn't now enough pressure to kick in the compressor clutch. I don't want to hot wire the compressor clutch, because I can't be sure there's enough oil and gas circulating in the system to protect it from expensive damage.

So the question is - what gas can I put into the system, with the dye, to get the aircon running and the dye around the circuit to trace the leak, without spoiling it all for an eventual refill of R12 when the leak is solved?
