    We've check freon. Still not working. Is there a way to get a diagram of the compressor/system. How would I check the orfice tube?

    Air Conditioning Components

    A/c Pressure Transducer
    The switch is located on the discharge line near the compressor. The pressure transducer functions as the refrigerant system pressure sensor. It supports the condenser/radiator fans and compressor functions.
    Clutch, Pulley And Coil
    They are mounted on the compressor providing a way to drive the compressor. The compressor clutch and coil are the only serviced parts on the compressor. When the compressor is not in operation, the pulley free wheels on the clutch hub bearing. When the coil is energized the clutch plate is magnetically engaged with the pulley and turns the compressor shaft.

    The compressor compresses the low pressure refrigerant vapor from the evaporator into a high pressure, high temperature vapor. The Scroll TRS-90 Compressor is used on all models. The system uses polyalkylene glycol synthetic wax-free refrigerant oil SP-15 PAG.

    It is located in front of the engine cooling radiator. Its function is to cool the hot high pressure refrigerant gas. This causes it to condense into a high pressure liquid refrigerant.

    Evaporator Coil
    The coil removes heat and dehumidifies the air before it enters the vehicle. The coil is located in the A/C housing.

    Evaporator Probe
    The evaporator temperature probe prevents condensate water on the evaporator coil from freezing and obstructing A/C system air flow. It does this by cycling the compressor clutch on and off. The switch is attached to the evaporator coil with the sensing probe inserted into the coil fins.

    Expansion Valve
    The valve is used to meter refrigerant into the evaporator in accordance with cooling requirements. The valve is located in front of the evaporator coil.

    High Pressure Relief Valve
    The valve is located at the rear of the compressor. The valve is used to prevent excessive high system pressure. The valve vents the system when a pressure of 3445-4135 kPa (500-600 psi) and above is reached. This prevents damage to the compressor and other system components. The valve closes with a minimum pressure of 2756 kPa (400 psi) .

    The drier is used to remove any traces of moisture from the refrigerant system. The filter is used to separate any foreign particles.

    Refrigerant Lines
    The lines are used to carry the refrigerant between the various system components.

    Service Gauge Port
    The high pressure gauge port is located on the compressor discharge line. The low pressure gauge port is located on the suction line.

    Thermal Limiter Switch
    The switch is used to measure compressor surface temperature. If compressor surface temperature is excessive the switch will cut battery feed voltage to the compressor clutch. The switch will then reset once compressor surface temperature returns to normal.

    A/C Pressure Transducer
    The A/c Pressure Transducer functions as the refrigerant system pressure sensor. It supports the condenser/radiator fans and compressor functions. The pressure transducer is screwed attached to a valve on the discharge line near the compressor.

    A/C Refrigerant Lines
    The air conditioning lines used on this vehicle are made from reinforced rubber with a nylon liner on the inner walls. The ends of the A/C lines are made with light weight aluminum fittings or quick connects.

    The A/C lines use special connectors called quick connects. There are four quick connects in the system. Two are located at the condenser and the other two are located at the expansion valve. Each quick connector has a clip installed on it.

    CAUTION: Never attempt to remove a clip or disconnect a quick connect without reclaiming all refrigerant from the air conditioning system. The system must be empty.

    All quick connects use two O-rings to seal the connection. The O-rings are made from a special type of rubber that is not affected by R-134a refrigerant. O-ring replacement is required whenever lines are removed and installed. Use only O-rings specified for this vehicle. Failure to use the correct type of O-ring will cause the connection to leak within a short period of time.

    When it is necessary to open the refrigeration system, have everything needed to service the system ready. The system should not be left open any longer than necessary Cap or plug all lines and fittings as soon as they are opened. This will prevent the entrance of dirt and moisture into the system. All new lines and components should be capped or sealed until they are ready to be used.

97 Plymouth Breeze won't blow cold air due to freon leak.

Your AC system is a closed system, so the fact you have to put more Freon in, means there is definitely a leak. I would check it out with a mechanic.

Heat won't work when moving.

sounds like the thermostat has a problem and needs to be replaced. The thermostat regulates temp and it defective can either stay closed or stay open and I reckon in your case it has stuck open permanently.
Your manual should show you where the thermostat is located.

My 1998 Plymouth Breeze is getting too hot. Could it be because of a problem with the cap of the tank.

doubt it ,more like the cooling fan not coming on ,try starting engine then turn A/C on and the fan should start ,if it does then it will work for now but you will need to change the either the temp sensor or the ballast resistor ,if the fan doesnt come on when you turn the A/C on then take it straight to a garage and to get it their put the heater on full heat and the blower fan on ,this will keep the engine cool so you can drive it to a garage

Problems with heat

Your thermostat is stuck open - if you replace that, you'll be fine (may as well have the coolant flushed as well, since you'll lose a decent amount of it when the thermostat is changed).
