    this car has no points, what century are u in?

  • I doubt there are points and condenser on your vehicle, Much more likely, is a pick up coil, a rotor, an igniter and a HT coil. These are usually found in the distributor, under the cap...I think that your vehicle would probably not have had the separate coil....If you'd like to explain what you'd like to do maybe we could help?

I have a Mazda 323 1977 1.4 Ltr I seem to be replacing the condenser (near the ignition coil) every few months. not sure why

condenser usually is placed closer to the dizzy.
Negative from coil, through condenser, through to points.

Ignition points

Most any gas engine will run without a condenser, but not for long.
The condenser "stores" the voltage when the points open and close. This prevents the points from being burned up quickly. Without a condenser the points will be cooked in a few days.

Cant find fuel filter location

Hi Horton, Are we dealing with a car using a carburetor and points and condenser ignition system? If so the fuel filter is usually fitted in the engine compartment, between the pump and the carburetor, but sometimes it can be in the fuel line before the pump. Its usually about an inch and a half in diameter and three inches long. Its usually translucent white plastic but can be metal. If your vehicle is spluttering and misfiring irregularly it will probably be caused by defective points and condenser. Replace them and set the gap to 0.45 mm and the ignition advance to 10 degrees BTDC. The Celica was hot during its day. Regards John

Case 580CK gas...intermitent spark at points, new coil. Condenser needed?

Hi, the condenser connects to the negative coil terminal and is used to absorb the point spark so the points will not wear out prematurely. If you are getting sparks in the points, I recommend you replace the condenser.

Being a 1980 I doubt it has points or Condensor if it had them you would have found them under the rotor cap.

We have water leaking into the interior of the car with the air conditioner on. Seems like the condensation drain is plugged. where is this located on this car?

There is a drain from the condensation from the cooling coils and so this could be blocked or the hose had come off in postion when the mat or the floor was cleaned.
please check this out , clean the hose or connect the hose back to the outlet point under the dash board collection tray.

Where is the a/c condensation drain tube located on a 1995 ford escort wagon with a 1.9L engine?

Look on the right side of the lower rear firewall, should be a small black tube pointed down. Hope this helps, let me know.

Drivers and passenger side floorboard wet from air conditioner condensation. How can i fix?

There is always drain tube because AC always condenses water.
The drain tube must have become disconnected. Look underneath the car and you will see it pointing down.

How to determine if a condenser is still functional.

The ignition condenser is needed for good coil saturation and is directly related to the voltage output of the coil, the weaker the ignition condenser is, the weaker the spark will be from the coil.

The signs to look for when replacing the ignition points are burnt or pitted contact surfaces at the breakers, and for a worn down rubbing block. (where the points contact the cam lobes inside the distributor)

The only things that you can do to prolong the life of the ignition points is to make sure that the rubbing block on the ignition points and the distributor cam lobes are properly lubricated with die-electric grease, and make sure that the dwell angle is properly set. (you would need a dwell meter to set the ignition points properly)

The only reason that the engine would stall from the ignition points is because either the condenser burned out, or the rubbing block wore down and the ignition points closed up. (The ignition points should open and close to provide a primary signal to the coil, if they do close up, you can get home by using a piece of a match book cover to set the gap for the ignition points, it is approximate enough to work well enough to get you back home if stranded from closed up ignition points)

I hope that this was helpful to you in any way.

Where exactly is the orifice tube located at on a 1996 (DOHC v6)?

it's in the high pressure liquid line.

A/C Evaporator Core Orifice The A/C evaporator core orifice (19D990) should be replaced whenever the A/C compressor (19703) is replaced for lack of performance (internal damage). The A/C evaporator core orifice, located in the condenser to evaporator tube (19835), cannot be serviced in detail as a component of the line. If replacement is necessary, follow the procedure outlined for Liquid Line Removal and Installation. An orifice tube replacement service kit may be used as an optional service procedure. Refer to Section 12-00 for information regarding the use of an A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Replacement Kit E5VY-19D695-A.
A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Replacement Kit Installation
  1. Discharge A/C refrigerant system. Refer to System Discharging and Recovery as outlined.
  1. Remove condenser to evaporator tube (19835) from vehicle.
  1. Locate A/C evaporator core orifice (19D990) by three indentations or a circular recess in metal portion of the condenser to evaporator tube.

    A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Location
  1. Note angular position of ends of condenser to evaporator tube so that it can be reassembled in correct position.
  1. Cut a 63.5 mm (2.5 inch) section from condenser to evaporator tube at A/C evaporator core orifice location. Do not cut closer than 25.4 mm (1 inch) from start of a bend in tube.

    A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Section Removed From the Liquid Line
  1. Remove contaminants from the two pieces of the condenser to evaporator tube.
  1. NOTE: The inlet half of the condenser to evaporator tube will be positioned against the A/C evaporator core orifice tabs when correctly assembled.

    Lubricate fitting with clean refrigerant oil and assemble orifice tube kit (with A/C evaporator core orifice installed) to condenser to evaporator tube. Make sure flow direction arrow is pointing toward evaporator end of the condenser to evaporator tube, and taper of each compressor ring is toward compression nut.
