#165 of 236 Hot blowing AC
Sep 05, 2010 (11:15 pm)
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.

What are you trying to do by doing this?

Have bad allergies. Drive pass an area of blooming gold rod and it gets miserable. Shutting off system helps but by the time you see or feel it, it's to late.
