Hi,

The SKU number for the part is P40110P costing something arround $104. The tech charges would vary from 100$ to 150$ depending upon the place you stay.

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 4.7L engine. Air conditioning only blows cold air when vehicle is moving; warm air when idling... please help. Thanks!


Start by checking the condensor fan to make sure it is running while you have the ac on. If it is not blowing check the condensor fan motor fuse that is located in the totally integrated power module. If the fuse is bad it is most likely that the condensor fan motor is bad and is drawing too much amperage and will need to be replaced. Now I am assuming it has an electric condensor fan motor. Make sure that the condensor is free of debris, a dirty condensor will cause high discharge pressures that will cause poor or insufficient cooling at idle.

I'm replacing the a/c compressor, the orifice tube and the accumelator dryer. Question 1, is the accumelator dryer and the condensor the same thing? Question 2, is it necessary to use a shop vac?


CONDENSOR IS THE SMALL RADIATOR LOOKING DEVICE WITH COOLING FINS IT IS MOUNTED IN FRONT OF THE RADIATOR. THE ACCUMULATOR LOOKS LIKE A CANISTER OR LOOKS LIKE A CAN.YOU NEED TO ADD 1 ONCE REFRIGERANT OIL TO CONDENSOR AND ACCUMULATOR. YOU NEED AC VACUUM PUMP. NOT SHOP VAC. THE AC VACUUM PUMP COST ABOUT $400.00 YOU CAN BUY CHEAPER ONE FOR $60.00 YOU NEED A AIR COMPRESSOR THAT OPERATE AIR TOOLS WITH.YOU NEED VACUUM PUMP TO REMOVE ALL MOISTURE OUT THE AC SYSTEM BECAUSE MOISTURE WILL FREEZE UP IN THE SYSTEM.

Can't find the ''cabin air filter'' on my 1996 Honda Odyssey


A 1996 Honda Odyssey is not equipped with a cabin air filter. If I was looking for a restriction in the cabin air, the first place I would look is on the inlet side of the A/C condensor. ALL cabin air travels through the A/C condensor ALL of the time. (The heater core only sees air when the temp door is not directing the air around it and always after it has been through the condensor first.) I have seen gunk as hard as concrete clogging the condensor just from layers of dirt that collects on the wet coils then dries.

98 buick century , with auto climate control ,


is it HOT or just not as cold. If its HOT, like heated air, there is a door problem, if its just not cool, the a/c refridgerent is low and will need a recharge, most likely the comp is leaking.

How do i change the starter on a 96 century


If it's the 3.1 or the newer 3100 the starter should just be a couple 13 and 15mm bolts. Plus the nut for the cable. Hope this helps.

Air condition is broken


That could be most anything from no freon to a bad compressor, condensor,evaparator,or hoses.

Mechanic said car nedds new condensor, is the condensor in the radiator ?


The condenser is part of your air conditioning system. Hot high pressure freon gas from your air conditioning compressor will run through your condenser to dissipate heat and condense into a liquid.
The condenser is not in the radiator but looks like a small version of your radiator mounted either in front of, or behind your main radiator.
If your AC works properly and doesn't leak, then you don't need a condenser.
