#163 of 232 Re: 2010 Expedition A/C compressor fails [hctry]
Aug 10, 2010 (7:23 pm)
My husband and I just had a very similar experience with a 2010 Expedition bought in February 2010. We'd used the AC occasionally with no problems, and had about 4300 miles on the odometer, when in mid-July the AC suddenly failed. Driving down to the valley from our California mountain home, we turned it on, and it made a terribly loud whining sound. The sound stopped when the AC was turned off. Once in town, after parking the car, my husband started the engine, turned on the AC again, and the engine immediately shut off. The car would only run with the AC off.
We took it to the nearest dealer, and had to rent a car. The dealer phoned the next day and said the compressor had to be replaced. They attempted to turn it by hand and found that it was locked up. The compressor had to come from Back East, which took three days. They then found that they couldn't flush all the metal bits from the rest of the AC system, and had to order more parts. The tech's notes mention replacing the resonator and the compressor and various other parts. Looks like they were able to flush out the two evaporators.
We got the Expedition back after a week, and the AC has been working. Ford paid $90 toward the 7-day car rental as "goodwill for parts delay".
The service rep said that it was a factory problem. He said the fluid in the compressor was underfilled.

#165 of 232 Hot blowing AC
Sep 06, 2010 (12:15 am)
I have a 2000 Ford Expedition, and last week i noticed that my AC wasnt blowing cold like i should.. but after driving it for a few it was cold again so i didnt worry to much about it.. within a few days, there was no more cold air no matter how much i drove. I finally took it in thinking it would need to be recharged, and they told me that the front seal on the compressor was busted and that i would need a whole new system. They gave me a quote of $1500. I was just wondering what insite you guys can give me on this. Also if i am getting a fair quote in your opinion. I would like to fix the issue myself to save some money, but not sure if i can cause the machanic made it seem like a lot of work. thanks for your time..

Not sure what a "whole new system" is. A compressor will run you 600 or so bucks.

I recently had to replace my a/c compressor, accumulator and a/c manifold. I replace all these parts but now my front vents donít work. Only the defrost ones work. Also my rear a/c blows out only hot. Anybody know how to fix these problems.

The issue with the front vents is likely a vacuum leak. There are vacuum hoses that run under the battery tray and they tend to get corroded and leak. The rear is likely a broken blend door actuator. The gear in the actuator that moves the blend door is plastic and breaks. $50 part, depending on how flexible you are it could be a 15 minute fix or a two hour fix.

When you say "up top" you mean defroster? I'd say vac leak for you also.
