Default A/C Freeon Leak

Hey guys, I've got an '08 Maxima SE. It's been in the shop a couple times now to get the A/C repaired, because it's not blowing cold air.

Originally there was a leaky hose on the low side, which has been replaced. Then it leaked down again. Then the condensor was deemed bad (and replaced) and then it leaked down again and the compression valve was deemed bad (and replaced). Then it leaked down again and the relief valve on the compressor was replaced, and THEN, it leaked down again.

So every time it's charged up, it is good for a couple of days, and then it leaks down, and the air is no longer cold.

So here I am asking for some help.

Located in FW TX. Thanks!

The system has been charged several times, and each time it leaks down, there's no residue or evidence of where the freeon is going.

It's just frustrating at this point, several hundred bucks in.

Can anyone in the greater DFW area recommend a good A/C repair shop?

Did you use the leak UV dye to see where it may be leaking from?
