Ac system leaking r134

I have a ac leak in my 98 trans am looks like its coming from the condesor line because there's green bubbles leaking out.. Do I just replace the line and add r134? Called autozone and they said they don't carry that line any body know where to get 1? Any info would help thanks...

You need to evacuate the system, replace the o ring, use a vacuum pump to remove any air and moisture afterwards and then recharge the system.

In other words take it to a shop that has the proper equipment to do the above.

You will lose all of the refrigerant and some of the lubricating oil, and allow air and moisture to get into the system which then must be removed with a vacuum pump.

Refrigeration oil is hygroscopic. Attracts moisture from the air which must be removed via a vacuum.
