Question about 2007 Chrysler Town & Country LX New Cars
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.

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

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.
