Probably plugged or failed expansion valve on rear evaporator. Both front and rear are plumbed in parallel so if the front is cold, a problem with refrigerant flow at back unit almost has to be in the expansion valve.

1998 Ford Econoline Van E-150 Front A/C blows cold rear A/C blows warm?


Generally you would need to check the level of freon in the system, and probably the expansion valve in the rear unit. You should have one hot and one cold ac line going to each evaporator.

1999 chevy express 1500 van hard to start when cold. will start up fine with a shot of starting fluid. no engine codes. starts fine when warm


I had same issue. I thought it was a fuel delivery problem but I then noticed that while I had it on a battery charger it started up immediately. I noticed that the speed of the starter/flywheel was significantly quicker leading to the conclusion that the battery just needs to have more cranking amps. When I told this to a mechanic friend of mine he told me that it had something to do with the computer and that I just needed a better battery, more cranking amps. I just bought a battery today might even get a bigger one

My 2001 venture van rear air is blowing hot air


often on the vans with rear air the air dor acuator goed bad and can no longer switch from hot to cold. also the swich itself will often go bad. this can be caused by sticky fingers damaging the inside of the switch. sometimes a good cleaning in warm water will fix a sticky switch

1999 Suburban, A/C on warm air from front vents, cold air in rear


The car uses the same freon in the front as it does in the rear. If the rear a/c is working, you either have a plugged evaporator in the front unit, or perhaps a bad heater switch. Try switching the heater to hot and see if it blows even warmer air from the front vents. If so, the heater switch is working and then it sounds like a plugged evaporator or maybe a plugged orifice tube. That is a good place to start looking. Hope this helps.

Our 1999 chevy express 1500 rear a/c does not work but the front a/c works well. it seems that there should be a coolant shut off valve or something to allow the a/c to work.


Sometimes there is a valve on the right upper part of the doghouse if you are facing front. With hood popped look for a wing -nut looking valve. Test it a little and make sure its the right one before driving anywhere. Hope this helps.

The air ducts need to warm up ...much like adjusting the water for a shower.

For your 2nd question..it's just the nature of the beast.

Engine idles high when first started after tune up and takes long for kick down


Hi edsan 58,

Most gas injected engines run at a higher speed when started from cold....It's the cold start application working....As long as the idle speed returns to normal within a minute or two....longer when the weather is colder.....nothing to worry about
