And your point is? That seems to support my belief that you can get fined for it, but it's very unlikely you'd get arrested for it. They mention a fine above, not a threat of arrest.

I don't need the threat of arrest to not do illegal/wrong things.

R-134a is not supposed to cause any ozone damage. It was R-12 that did that. R-134a has other environmental concerns.

I really doubt that anyone would ever be arrested for that. Shops that do it and get caught face fines.

That was the power steering fluid level that you checked. (It does use ATF.) There is no way to check the transmission fluid level without crawling under the car with a wrench.

Low refrigerant level will not stop the blower from running. Your problem may not be related to refrigerant at all.

It's definitely much less expensive to find and fix the leaks rather than replace everything, even if you have to get a shop to do it.
