Question about 2007 Chrysler Town & Country LX New Cars

1 Answer

2006 Town & Country no air conditioning

I was told my rear evaporator needs replacing, an $1,100 fix, and the parts are on huge backorder, so a long wait.

I took it to a trusted mechanic, and he said there's another option -- disconnect the rear air and recharge the system, just use the front a/c. That was done, and so now the front air works fine. It just takes a little longer to cool the back. The fix was $375.

My '06 T&C is out of warranty, and I didn't want to pay $1,100 for a rear evaporator for fear it might happen again because I've heard it's due to vibration and possibly a design defect.

No recall by Chrysler so far. They should take responsibility for this. One dealer I called said there are 4,000 requests per week for rear evaporators.

Rear air was not standard in minivans in the past, so it's not so awful to be without it.

The plug kit was maybe a 10 dollar part + freon & labor you could have gotten it cheaper,evaporator leakage would be common on any make but seems chrysler has had more of them because there are more of them on the road compared to the other makes.Climate (salt belt region) and vibration are contributing factors to failure but that will apply to any vehicle no matter the make.

SOURCE: location of the evaporative cannister solenoid? 2003 saturn vue

Depends if the engine is 3.0 or a 2.2?
3.0 purge is on the top, back side of the intake. Black, cylinder. Looks the same on a 2.2, but is located next to the air filter.

SOURCE: need to replace evaporator

Under the hood on the firewall you will find (3) bolts located between the a/c (in/out) and the heater core (in/out). Remove the nuts on the bolts and you should be able to just lift her outta there. Assuming you have removed all electrical connectors, braces, ect. The only thing left on the passenger side should be whole heating and cooling unit. ( It comes out as 1 big box). hope this helps

SOURCE: replace evaporator

ew. You chose an expensive car to have this to happen to.

Well, the evaporator is located behind the console and dashboard, and requires a complete disassembly of the dash board area.

It's possible for one technician to do it, but the last time I saw one done was at my local a/c garage. They were working on the city's vehicle, and it was a Dodge Dakota, late model.

It had the same problem as yours, a leaky evaporator.

They had about 30 hours into it at $50 per hour. The evaporator
was cheap, but the labor to change it is not.

Good luck on this one.

This depends on the problem , like a bad gas cap is not covered but so what a cap is cheap, take it to dealer and let them fix it for free or very cheap. most of the time its a valve, purge valve or vent valve, these are covered, take it before you hit 80,000. good luck.

Hi!

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.

I just replaced a new rear ac evaporator in my 2006 town and country mini van and i need to know how to charge the ac


you are best to take it to a shop that does a/c work to have them evacuate and vacume the system to remove all the air out of the system then recharge it.as moisture will cause problems in the system.also the R134 freon that the system uses is far more dangerous to humans than R12 and can cause serious health problems with little inhalation of the gas.

What fittings doI need to cap the rear a/c lines going to the rear of the 2006 Town and Country? I have removed the evaporator and want to cap the lines on the van side near the rear wheel.


I had to cut the lines back from the fittings used to connect to the rear evaporator coil. You will find these to be a 3/8" and a 3/4" line. I used stainless steel fittings from my work as I could not find compression fittings at any of the box hardware stores.

Air conditioner leak


Sounds like a cracked evaporation canister on the rear a/c.

The service writer at the dealership you contacted has one function at the dealership, to make money. They would like to do a diagnostic on your vehicle so that they have an opportunity to sell you service on the items that are bad. Most of them have no experience as a mechanic. 585@snet.net if you have any direct questions. Please leave me good feedback if you feel I helped you. Regards, AL

Sometimes though it may be worth it to pay a diagnostic fee rather than just spending money on parts. Part replacements to fix an undiagnosed problem can get expensive. The good news is that if your problem is the evap canister it is a cheaper fix than the compressor.

Town & Country 2007 LX model aircondition not working


It does have air conditioning installed. It may also have rear a/c. The rear a/c evaporator is probably leaking freon. I have replaced many rear evaporators on 2006 and 2007 Chrysler minivans as a result of a design change in 2006. Recharge the a/c and add dye to the system. If it has rear air, look behind the right rear wheel in the fender area under the car where the a/c lines go into the body.
