Not 100% sure the specific part but the green fluid is likely antifreeze. And that looks like some sort of heater hose

HELP !!!

That's a line for your A/C, and that green stuff is freon. That tank that it's coming out of is your A/C condenser. And yes get it to a shop.

No, but it will run out of freon, then it will stop. And depending on how much your system will hold it might be a little pricey. Not including possible damaged piping. Plus your A/C useless without freon.

Freon also becomes a gas, depending on where it is in the A/C system.

The green stuff isn't freon, it's dye and oil that is put in the system. But the freon or r134a or r12 will run out as stated before. If I were you, I would replace the broken line myself and then take it in to a shop to have it serviced. Save yourself the 10% mark up on parts and an hour labor charge.

Just let it leak. Nothing you can do. But I'd make sure it is outside while it does. It shouldn't take long before its done leaking.

The "green stuff" was likely oil that is in AC system. The hissing sound is the Freon leaking out.
There is nothing that you can do. It would be more "environmentally friendly" if you could have rushed it to an AC shop so that they could properly evacuate the Freon, rather than releasing it into the atmosphere, but you would have to pay for new Freon anyways.

Is it leaking at one of the connectors? Or is the tubing cracked?

Yes, doesn't effect drivability. Just no A/C.

Once all of the Freon leaks out, there will be no pressure in the system to activate the pressure switch. Your AC compressor will not turn on if the pressure is too low to activate the pressure switch.
It won't hurt anything to drive it... Just your AC will no longer function.

Update* the condensor and compressor are both unusable now and it would cost $400-$700 to fix it, so ended up going with an ac delete since i dont want to put that much money into the car before i sell it

Take it to a different shop sounds like they are ripping you off! It sounds like they may be a fault anyway since it did not start leaking until after they serviced it. Don't think hitting a hard bump would crack a AC line. Just my 2 cents!

HOLD UP!!!
From what it looks like, it might not be cracked at all. There is a connection where the lines from the engine bay hook into the lines inside the car. That may have come apart or broken a seal.

The connection should look like this: Attachment 185176
It seems you are missing the security clamp that looks like this:Click image for larger version

You will need a special tool to take it apart. You can get a kit at harbor freight or advanced auto:Click image for larger version

Then push the tool in and pop the connection off. I wasnt able to take any more pics cuz my camera died. But if you want to, I can show you what it looks like apart. Make sure You do this to the connection in the 1st pic. Or at least inspect it

If I had just had it serviced and it was working before I went in, they'd be fixing my AC. End of story.

I think that I would just sell the car as is.
You don't need an AC delete unless you want to make the car lighter. The AC pulley will just "freewheel" and it won't hurt anything by not having the system functioning.

Yeah the car is probable worth more with the a/c broken. Could be a cheap fix for a mechanic if they can find used parts. But I would be a pain in the *** for a buyer to reinstall if you rip everything out of the car

be sure not to put the air flow switch in the windshield position...normally that will run the a/c to dehumidify. The low pressure switch should prevent it from coming on but never rely on safetys. It is ok to drive but NO a/c No air flow to windshield.

Looks like just the quick connect popped apart..known ford problem,they make a clamp over fitting to prevent this.the shop that serviced the a/c most likely had nothing to do with this.the shock of the hard bump jarred the connection apart far enough to unseat the o-ringsas far as needing compressor and condensor most likely bull ****..take to another shop explain what happened when started leaking and point out connection..then with this estimate in hand go back to 1st shop for full refund and report to bbb
