Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Check engine light came on right after I had the AC serviced

I had my 1998 Explorer's AC serviced. They put in a new compressor (rebuilt), evaporator core explorer 95-up, r.drier, expansion valve, and refrigerant-R134A.
The very next day, "check engine" light came on. I have purchased 93 grade gas several times but the light is still on.
Also, after the AC service the car is having trouble starting in the morning. It shakes before it is working properly.
Do you think these issues might be related to the AC service?

I have a 1998 Foed Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition, I've recharged the ac (store bought) but still there's no cold air. What else could be the problem?


you need to put gauges on it and see what the pressures are to see if the compressor is working while your waiting for that is the compressor running? is the large ac pipe cold?is the smaller pipe hot?

Charge ac


The high pressure service port is located on the liquid line between the condenser and the evaporator, near the front of the engine compartment. The low pressure service port is located on the compressor manifold, directly over the suction port of the compressor. Make sure you know what your doing if you connect the wrong thing to the wrong port you can blow something up.

HAVE A 1998 MERCURY SABLE. I AM TRYING TO CHANGE THE AC LINES AND WHEN I PULLED THEM OFF,BLACK FLUID WAS LEAKING FROM THE COMPRESSOR


You had a compressor failure

Now you have a big job ahead of you

You will have to install a new compressor

Remove & Flush all hose assy's

Remove & flush the condensor

Replace the drier or accumulator

Flush the evaporator in place

Put new oil in all components in the correct amounts

Scott, this might sound strange but check the wiring harness just in front of the AC compressor, sometimes, this wiring harness will come loose from it's tie down and start rubbing on the AC compressor pulley causing all kinks of electrical glitches intermittently. Remember, your Service Engine Soon light is for Emissions only, it will stay on only if your car is polluting. Good luck, Gary

1)sensor in your setting switch is bad
2)low C fluid in your system will cause the compressor to constantly cycle on & off
3)related to #2 and if it's been doing it for awhile you will need to replace the compressor....(used one at local junkyard sells for about 50 bucks)
4)clock light would simply be a worn or weak display. Only solution would be to replace it or better still, ignore it.

I BROUGHT SOME REFRIGERANT TO PUT IN MY 98 FORD AC


It is on the accumulator, I believe it's by the right fender, either behind the right headlight or next to the firewall.

You were not clear, but I assume the compressor runs OK. If not, troubleshoot the electrical to the compressor. Did you replace the orifice tube while it was discharged for service? If not, then check the pressures. If low side pressure is high the tube might be plugged, especially if you truly had a bad compressor. In a properly working system the line should be cold on the evaporator side of the orifice tube when properly charged. If compressor runs, system properly charged and that line is warm then suspect a plugged tube.

No cold air when A/C on but climate control works in controlling heat


the first check to perform is to see if the compressor is cutting on.... you should be able to hear the engine struggle a bit when the ac is first cut on, or watch the clutch (built into the compressor pulley) begin to spin when the AC is switched on. If it does cut on, likely causes include refrigerant leak or internal system failure. If the compressor is not cutting on, it is a control issue, and some electrical tests must be performed.
