This is sandwiched under the dash and requires dash removal to remove and replace.

My 2007 Town & Country Limited has the front evaporator freezing. Is there an evap. temp. sensor or anti-Icing switch in this system?

There will be a sensor located somewhere on the evaporator (inside the car) that turns the compressor off when the temperature is close to freezing. All car a/c have them to prevent icing up. I suggest buying a manual for the car if you want to do it yourself or take it to a local car refrigeration shop if you don't. It may cost a bit as it can be difficult to gain access to the evaporator in many cars.

How do i replace the ac evaporator discharge sensor without removing the dash

It is behind the dash, you also have one in the dash that takes the ambient temperature in the car and another black dome looking thing on the dash that calculates sun load.

2006 Subaru Forester. AC always runs properly cool except once or twice a day when air turns warm for about 1-2 minutes. Then back to normal.

IT may be that there is ice forming on the evaporator in the car. This prevents the ac from working as the thermostat setting is affected and the ac shuts down until the ice clears and the thermostat gets a new reading. Check that the ac evaporator core fins are clean and free of gunk build up. Some times you may be a clink sound as the ice breaks away and falls into the ac box

I was told his morning that my 2006 Ford Fusion A/C has a leaking evaporator core. Cost to replace about $1,100. My next move is to check the warranty but if that fails what do you think my next move...


Please get a second opinion. It's very unlikely that evaporator itself is leaking. Usualy the leaks occur in joints between pipes.

Hope it helped.

Light on right hand side look unscrewed gas cap is that what it is?

Yes but, it is telling you that something is wrong with the EVAP system. It could be the gas cap itself....really! It could be a sensor or a bad hose or a connection. Have a good mechanic or Dealer look it over. It is a very complicated system.

2006 Ford Fusion 2.3L I4 Engine Check engine light ODBC code is P0455. I have already replaced the gas cap. The computer codes were cleared by disconnecting the battery. The check engine light and same...

If you have already replaced the gas cap then you need to start looking for splits in your evap lines, and the evap canister for your vehicle. This procedure is easier done at a shop then by the DYI due to how many different lines that you have, and you may have a small slice in a line that only opens up under certain conditions. The p0455 is a very difficult code to diagnosis

I have a 2006 ford fusion. The ac compressor will not come on. I jumped the clutch relay out and it will run. I checked all fuses in the two circuits for the relay and all is well and has power. Is there...

It's the evaporator temperature switch, ford has tsb's out for it. You have to remove the dash board to change it, so far I've done 4 this year and it's only June. FYI it's 1.1 lbs of freon...........

Loacation of the orifice tube

The AC evaporator orifice always has to be after the electronic freon release valve after the receiver/dryer, and the evaporator itself.
It is optimal for it to be as close to the evaporator as possible, so sometimes it is even part of the input for the evaporator.
However, it is best if it is separate, because the orifice often gets clogged.
But the most common cause of clogging is ice, so try a vacuum pump to desiccate any moisture out first.
If the clog is ice, you can tell by heating the orifice and melting the ice.
Careful not to get it too hot though.
You don't want to damage hoses, and if freon gets into a flame, it can be toxic.
