Question Ac problems help!

I have a 2001 GC Lorado with a 6 cyl. I have replaced the evaporator and dryer reciever (acumulator). Serviced the freon and it stayed pressurized for about 2 days. I was unable to find any leaks but in the evaporator drain, thus the reason for the new evap.
It is leaking somewhere, any ideas where to look next? There is a AC line on the condensor that goes to the compressor that I can move up and down, should I be able to do that. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Ac problems help!

if it still has any pressure try using a soapy solution sprayed on all the fittings to look for a leak
