A/C Won't hold charge

I just recharged my system AGAIN. Not cheap when you look at the cost of Refer-Juice.

Pulled and held vacume for 30 minutes, recharged, annd used sniffer and soapy water. ALL CLEAR

As I drove around, it seemed the compressor was rather loud. I looked underneath and there is a lot of moisture, Kinda green in color. It is not antifreeze according to taste test. It looks to be coming from the area behind the compressor.

The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!!!

You might have a clogged compressor or the core is bad. Won't hold a charge, possibly leaking. A clog could spew out freon, explaining moisture/fluid...thus causing the compressor to act up and the AC to not work.

I'd start by simply flushing the system with a store bought kit and see what happens before you start replacing things.
