Test the system using ultraviolett leakdetector (or dye-penetrant) and a ultraviolett lamp in a dark room. Fill the system with the UV-liquid and wait. Turn off the light in the darkened room and use the UV-light to search for leaks. If there are any leaks, they will light up brightly.

Or use a leakdetector instrument for the refrigerant used in the car.

The company that told you that it was the evaporator, should have a leakdetector instrument (if it is a propes A/C company).

Good luck!

The best I can tell u is that the smell is from a leak at the evaporator or connections. I advise to get another opinion because it sounds like a lot of guesswork. if u get the work done, make sure the work comes with a warrantee! I gave all my customers warrantees for 20 years. That's part of the diagnostic business! Good Luck If u don't get a warrantee ,don't get the diagnosis or work done

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.

States evaporated hose or something, not sure, someone told me that they heard air behind the intake

Then I'd suggest starting your vehicle and checking for any vacuum leaks around your intake and replace any damaged hoses or reinstall them if any have came loose.

The A/C is blowing hot air. The compressor comes on, the fan is turning for the A/C and a local Firestone put freon in saying it was low. The Firestone says the compressor or evaporator is bad. I have...

could be pressure switch. When the guy put 134a in...find out what the pressure readings were on the suction line to find out if the compressor was working. May as well hook up the high side as well to get both readings. If there's a decent separation between the two....the compressor works. The evaporator is just a radiator, there's a metering device for the refrigerant into the evaporator, but the only thing that goes wrong with an evaporator is a leak.

2001 AC not working, was told something under the dash quit working. What could that be?

Under the dash??????

Could only mean the blower is bad

Or the blower motor resistor

Or the evaporator core if all the gas has leaked out

Have a pro look at it and determine for sure what the problem is.

Told 2002 BMW 325i Evaporator Leaking

1- If they find the leak in compressor, then only compressor needs to be changedwhy others have to be changed unless they see the leak at each port of others. I don't beleive they can see the leak at evaporator since they didn't touch your dash board, Only if they guarantee to make it work with 770 on all others, it is a very good price it the dash board labor is price included, You can ask to clear it up. If total price is lower than #2 then go for it.

2- The 1600 price is the same as few years back. I like this place because because they tell you up front having to pull out the dash board, to get to the evaporator. You have to see how hard to get the evaporator out to work. Because refrigerant and labor are expensive in troubleshooting, they want to repacle all for sure. Good luck on making a good deal.

Freon Leak

the dealer does not want problems with somthing they just fixed so they tend to replace more than needed to be on the safe side ask around and find a good local mom & pop shop they should treat you right

If they have already checked the system by injecting a dye in with the freon and no leak detected in the engine area with the black light which will show any leak as a bright yellow, then the most likley area is the evaporator which is behind the right side dash.
