It is absolutely 100% impossible for coolant/antifreeze to blow out of the back of the a/c compressor, there is no coolant/antifreeze in the a/c system. You're either seeing refrigerant blow out of the a/c compressor or you're looking at something else that isn't the a/c compressor.

That is dye. Same color I had when I went to charge my system after purchasing and had a leak.
It's blowing out every 10 seconds because your compressor is kicking on. This will happen until the pressure in the system is too low to kick it on - which will be shortly after your can of freon you are charging it with is empty.
very possible. it's that flourescent stuff right? i was thinking that but it's so close in color to coolant/anti freeze. plus i wasn't sure if the coolant pump was somehow hooked up through the AC compressor.
recovered the refrigerant,pulled a vacuum and weighed in the factory charge. works like a charm now. still wish i didn't have the dye in the system.i've been doing HVAC for 9 years and never needed to use it(plus a lot of manufacturers won't warranty a compressor if they find anything but refrigerant/oil in it). i alwys used my leak detector or nitrogen and bubbles.
thanks for the responses guys. i'm not a big car person and wasn't sure if the coolant was somehow tied into the compressor housing. i saw green and lost my head.
Turtles, you use a recovery/charging system. Connects to the system and evacuates the freon into a tank. The system also removes the oil from the system. It will tell you how much freon and oil was removed. When the work is done on the a/c unit, you use the same system to recharge it. By law you are not allowed to vent freon to the atmosphere.

God I miss that Jeep. Forgot the kinda Jeep, 80 SX4.
what Shelby said. used a recovery machine which pumps the refrigerant into a recovery cylinder/tank. i pulled a vacuum(evacuated) and i charged it with new 134a because i dislike the idea of having anything other than refrigerant and oil in the system. i may not have eliminated all of the dye but the less the better.
thanks guys.i panicked. i saw green and freaked out.
