Our front ac is not working and back is cold in our 1999 GMC suburban, we tried putting freon and it didn't work


Dual zone front/rear ac systems have 2 evaporator cores. And 2 orifice tubes, which are just inline
filters. Either your front evaporator core or orifice tube is probably stopped up.

Sometimes you can get to the evaporator cores without removing them from the vehicle, and clean it.
Evaporator cores do get stopped up sometimes, because the blower motor pulls in air with dust and debris from outside, and the air is cooled when it passes through the evaporator core.

But evaporator cores are a nightmare to replace, you usually have to remove lots of stuff under the dash and lots of stuff under the hood to remove them.

      Where exactly is the orifice tube located at on a 1996 (DOHC v6)?


      it's in the high pressure liquid line.

      A/C Evaporator Core Orifice The A/C evaporator core orifice (19D990) should be replaced whenever the A/C compressor (19703) is replaced for lack of performance (internal damage). The A/C evaporator core orifice, located in the condenser to evaporator tube (19835), cannot be serviced in detail as a component of the line. If replacement is necessary, follow the procedure outlined for Liquid Line Removal and Installation. An orifice tube replacement service kit may be used as an optional service procedure. Refer to Section 12-00 for information regarding the use of an A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Replacement Kit E5VY-19D695-A.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Replacement Kit Installation
      1. Discharge A/C refrigerant system. Refer to System Discharging and Recovery as outlined.
      1. Remove condenser to evaporator tube (19835) from vehicle.
      1. Locate A/C evaporator core orifice (19D990) by three indentations or a circular recess in metal portion of the condenser to evaporator tube.


        A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Location
      32c58e1.gif
      1. Note angular position of ends of condenser to evaporator tube so that it can be reassembled in correct position.
      1. Cut a 63.5 mm (2.5 inch) section from condenser to evaporator tube at A/C evaporator core orifice location. Do not cut closer than 25.4 mm (1 inch) from start of a bend in tube.


        A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Section Removed From the Liquid Line
        ea95a2d.gif
      1. Remove contaminants from the two pieces of the condenser to evaporator tube.
      1. NOTE: The inlet half of the condenser to evaporator tube will be positioned against the A/C evaporator core orifice tabs when correctly assembled.

        Lubricate fitting with clean refrigerant oil and assemble orifice tube kit (with A/C evaporator core orifice installed) to condenser to evaporator tube. Make sure flow direction arrow is pointing toward evaporator end of the condenser to evaporator tube, and taper of each compressor ring is toward compression nut.

      I assume he used a leak tester and found a leak in the evap which is inside the plenum housing. Need to remove the plenum to get access to the evap. big job. If you are technical, you could remove the plenum assembly and let him replace the evap & then let you out the plenum back in. Then take back to have him evacuate and recharge system.

      Evaporator


      The following is a general removal procedure of A/C evaporator core. The evaporator is removed differently from different vehicles.
      For example, a 1994 Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable instructs you to, "Using a hot knife, cut the top of the air conditioning evaporator housing between the raised outline."

      Use a hacksaw or a hot knife to cut the case. Reprinted with the permission of Ford Motor Company.
      But a 1993 Ford Probe manual says to simply remove the blower motor and assembly screws before separating the case halves and removing the evaporator.




      The following procedure assumes that access to the evaporator has been determined.
      • Recover the refrigerant.
      • Drain the radiator if the heater hose(s) has to be removed to gain access.
      • Remove the heater hose(s), if necessary.
      • Remove any wiring harness, heat shields, brackets, covers, and braces that may restrict access to the evaporator core.
      • Remove the liquid line at the thermostatic expansion valve (TXV) or fixed orifice tube (FOT).
      • Remove the suction line at the evaporator or accumulator outlet.
      • Gain access to the evaporator core as outlined in the service manual.
      • Lift the evaporator from the vehicle.
      • Drain the oil from the evaporator into a calibrated cup.
      • For replacement, reverse the preceding procedure. First, replace the oil with the same amount and type you previously drained.

      1993 taurus heater core replacement guide


      This is a big job which involves discharging and removing parts of the A/C system as well as removing parts of the dash. I had the core done on a 94 Sable years ago and it was a very labor intensive and expensive job. Here are some instructions I found for a 94 Taurus which should be the same thing or similiar, but I don't guarantee that. Please note that these instructions were not tested by me and may contain errors or be incomplete in some way. For example "remove instrument panel" sounds simple but in reality is a process in itself requiring the removal of many screws. Naturally you would have to recharge the A/C and refill the coolant when done.
      __________________________________________
      Removal

      1. Remove instrument panel and lay it on front seat.
      2. Remove A/C evaporator housing as outlined.
      3. Remove vacuum source line from heater dash panel seal (18529).
      4. Remove heater dash panel seal from heater core tubes (refer to Heater Case Assembly).
      5. Remove four heater core access cover retaining screws and remove heater core cover (18B300) from A/C evaporator housing.
      6. Lift heater core and seals from A/C evaporator housing.
      ________________________________________________
      Installation

      1. Transfer three foam core seals to new heater core.
      2. Install heater core and seals into A/C evaporator housing.
      3. Position heater core cover on A/C evaporator housing. Install four retaining screws.
      4. Install heater dash panel seal on heater core tubes.
      5. Install vacuum source line through heater dash panel seal.
      6. Install A/C evaporator housing into vehicle as outlined.
      7. Reinstall dashboard components.

      Best of Luck!
