The a/c will not hold a charge. The car is equipped rear hvac. I had it leaked check and they said the lines going to the rear have to be replaced. Since this vehicle is a spare for when my kids come into town, is it possible to somehow disconnect and cap the lines going to the rear hvac unit?

Re: 2001 mercury villager rear a/c leak
The lines on the rear hvac never wearout it is the "O" rings that wear out and need to be replaced and you should be able to get a complete set of "O" rings at NAPA or Autozone also ask them about an A/C disconnect cause you will need this to get the lines apart to replace the "O" ring

usually it is a vacuum leak which is letting more air into the engine. With engine running, use a spray water bottle and mist around all vacuum lines, the power brake booster and engine seams. Then try any vacuum line to the transmission. Could also be a burst vacuum shift diaphram if so equipped.
A somewhat common problem on Nissan cars and imports that use clamps for fuel lines. Altho not usually that major. Often times the rubber fuel hoses leak in very cold weather. The fuel lines going to the tank are on the driver side. So is the fuel filter. I have to tighten up a clamp every winter on my 98 Villager when the temp drops below 30 degrees. If the leak is major enough to leave a puddle on the ground you should have no problem finding it.
