Hello blayland,

ac is very complicated but we can try to solve your problem here.

first, in not sure if your system has inividual solenoids. meaning the refrigerant could run in front only, in rear only or in both. so if you have a problem in liquid line solenoid at the fron , then the front wont cool.

second, you could have a bad expansion valve at the front that is why the front one is not cooling.

third, your heater damper might be open at the front and it is heating up the cold air that is coming from your front evaporator. this could be a control problem, a duct problem, or a heater valve problem...

i hope i was able to solve your problem,

pls rate me..

Im front ac works great but my rear ac blows hot air

probably needs freon. Add a can of R134a and see if it helps. they both run off same system but rear has exapnsion valve (more sensitive to low charge) than front fixed orifice tube design.

No rear air but blows good

if the front ac works well but the rear is hot check to rear control switch located in the front ac control head.
it has a vaccum-electrical switch and these go bad often

The heater only blows hot air sometimes

it sounds like a bad blend door motor.these are controlled electrically and not with a cable like older vehicles did.

Is there a sepreat charging valve for the rear ac front works great back blows hot air

no, there is one service port for the ac system itself, make sure that the actuator doors are functioning properly and that all control knobs are set for cool air, your problem lies somewhere between the the two airducts that connect from the main source of cool air,

i have just done this on mine after fixing a leak. yours is a simple one, you have an airlock. run the car till warm, remove the water filler, leave about 2" from the top and leave it running. eventually the air will come out. make sure you have the heating set onto hot front and back
