Question about 1998 Ford Expedition
When I turn on the vent, it seems bad, burnt smell. I do see any leaks under the car nor am I low on fluid. Also, I just took my car in to get the ac recharge and it still doesnt' blow cool air. Help, what do I do. Oh, did I tell you, it's driven by a female.
There are so many causes to a burnt smell from a motor that i would probably be typing for 3 hours before i would be able to finish them all. be that as it may. pull the transmission dipstick and check the fluid for colour and smell it. post back the results.
if you are going to recharge the a/c system ... yes you do want to have it pressure tested. there is usually an underlying cause for it not to have freon (or the alternative that they use now). pressure testing will at the very least let you know if there are leaks in the system. then you can start trouble shooting that to locate the leaks.
places like where you had your vehicle serviced do not have class A or certified mechanics working on your vehicle (from my understanding). if you tell them to recharge the a/c that's exactly what they will do. they are not concerned with whether it leaks out ten minutes after you get home.
