Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan
The rear vents do not blow cold when front vents do...no a/c to the back of the van..3.8 6 cyl....any help appreciated ...fan blows in the back and fan speed is still adjustable..
What are the readings on your A/C service gauges, hi and low sides? If you don't have service gauges, inexpensive ones can be purchased at stores like: Harbor Freight, Walmart, Pep Boys, etc. The gauge readings are the first step to a correct diagnosis.
Your system may be low on refrigerant. If you also have a rear heating unit, the air mixing door or water valve may not be shutting off. Your expansion valve may be bad in the rear unit.
If you can access your rear a/c, check to see if the inlet hose is hot or cold. If it is cold, you are low on refrigerant. If it is hot and the tube coming out of the expansion valve/orifice is cold, this is the way it is supposed to be. If the tube on the outlet of the evaporator is not cold, then you are low on refrigerant or the expansion valve/orifice may be bad.
