Freon Health Question, need reply asap...

I was disconnecting my evaporator today, the system had not been evacuated ( I was told it did not need to be). When I got one line undone, it hissed, and released the pressure. I opened my garage, then left for a while, but I need to know if I am in health trouble. I don't think I breathed much, if any in...but it says on a can of r134a that it can cause death without warning for breathing large amounts of vapor. Should I go to thew hospital? I feel fine???

If you haven't died by now, you'll be fine.

"Large amounts" is like someone free-basing the stuff.

Sweet, I'm not gonna die, thanks guys. Do I need to be careful handling it tomorrow when I change the evaporator out, or is it not something to worry about?

There might be a little bit of oil in there, but most likey, its not going to.

Also be careful the heater core might have some water/antifreeze in it as well.

Allready found that out the hard way. When I was pulling on the heater core I put a hole in it and got to deal with that fun. Can't wait till all this is done, thanks again!
