A little trick that the shop should have done in the first place, before charging the system, you need to pull a vacuum on it, and if you leave the machine hooked up holding the vacuum for about 5-10 minutes, if there is a leak anywhere in the system, your vacuum will start to drop, and then you can put some R134 in it and check for the leak. If the first shop had left the machine to hold the vacuum, they would have noticed that it wouldn't hold it, meaning there was a leak somewhere in the system. They probably just pulled the vacuum on it and charged it up right away to save some time.
