a few questions on a 97 chry town & country

by reble11 / April 22, 2014 8:45 AM PDT

I just got this 97 chry town & country mini van about 2 months ago. My questions are about the radiator and recharging the air conductioning.
1st there is a small leak just below the top of the radiator on the passenger side. So far the van has not been over heating. I had to add fluid a few times. There is this stuff on tv called flex seal. Will that stuff work as a stopgap measure until I can afford to replace the radiator. Also how hard is it to pull this radiator. I did a radiator job on a 69 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup but the pickup didn't have all the things in and around the radiator that the van does. Also with that small leak will there be a problem when the weather turns hot?
2nd question I had an air conditioning pressure check done. There is zero pressure. The auto teck that checked it thinks there is a leak. Can the system lose pressure over time if the van has sat not been used for a long time and there is no leak? If that is the case then will just recharging the system do it? I know were I can buy an refrigerant auto a/c recharge kit. It is just a question of what refrigerant is used in this model.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
