Need help identifying this object

need help identifying this object under the hood of my 96 Ranger. It is the high side valve for the HVAC. I called it a dryer/reciever but people said that now what its called..so i need to know what its called....as you can tell in the picture...i have a freon leak coming from it..anyone know if that is fixable or do i have to replace the whole thing? any help is appreciated.

It looks like a receiver/dryer, filter/dryer or accumulator.

do you think this can be fixed...anyone know about how much it would cost to get it replaced and have a vaccuum on it and then recharge....just need to know what kind of price to look for so i'm not getting ripped off.

what it probably needs is the little pin inside the port. Like a 2 second fix assuming thats what it is. I think to drain it and refill would probably be like 80-100 bucks... Hard to say with the all the freon covering the connector.

I think that's the AC oil. Freon instantly evaporates at room temperature.

Exactly what I was thinking. That is probably a "muffler" for the a/c. This does appear to be in the high side of the system and you cant just replace this part. You will have to get a new line.
