The problem is with the rear. When I am driving, the rear air blows cold but if I stop, the air starts to blow warmer. The front air always blows cold. A friend said someone cleans out a filter or something every year on hers but she didn't know where the filter was?? I didn't know if maybe since I live in Alabama and the temperature gets so hot here during the summer if maybe when I stop the heat from outside the car heats up the air going through the top air vents in the back of the car.

I have a 2004 Expy. The AC has just starter changing from dash vents to defrost vents when you put engine under a load. Sometimes if you let off the accelerator it will change back to dash vents. I have heard this is a vacuum leak. Does someone know for sure what this is and if it is a vacuum leak where are the possibilities of the leak and what is the fix. I have a shop trying to sell me an $800 part to fix this.

Its from the ceiling. I turn the a/c on from the front and its cold but when I turn on the back its always warms like the outside air. Im trying to avoid paying hundreds of dollars to fix. So if I can get some help from others that has had this problem it would make things easier.
Thank you in advance for any help.

That's a vac leak. Common spot is where the vac lines go under the battery tray.

What happens when you adjust the temperature knob, do you hear clicking or thumping in the rear passenger side?

my 04 exp. is stuck in the defrost mode. no other vents will blow air (in the drivers area).

I have this same issue. I did not have a thumping / clicking noise but I changed both actuators since I had the trim torn out anyways. Still can't figure out why I'm getting ambient air out of the rear a/c. When the temp is turned to hot, the air gets hot, as expected. When turned to cold, the air cools down(ambient air) but not air conditioned.

Do I have to replace the vac hoses totally? and what is the price I will have to pay to fix this problem?
Thank you in advance for your help.
