Question about Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Air compressor was replaced on our duel air for our 2000 dodge caravan sport. The rear air is warm while the front is cooler (not as cool as it could be). Is this a problem with the compressor or was it not charged properly? The part used for replacement was a used part.

You are right on all of your theories.

if the rear ac is not cooling , it could be under charged or was not charged properly, it could be a proble with the used compressor that you used.

to add to those theories,,,

the rear expansion valve could be clogged and needs replacing,
the filter drier could be clogged up too,
the controller at the back could be malfunctioning,
an electrical controller for the rear cooler could be defective ..

tnx 4 using fixya.

My front air bower for my ac stopped working my rear ac works I have a 2007 grand caravan help air blower or compressor?


if you have cold air in the rear then it isn't the a/c compressor. if no air comes out of the front vents the it is either the blower motor or the blower motor resistor.

How do you tell if you have rear a/c. My compressor needs replaced and I need to know which one too get. With or without rear a.c I have a 1997 Dodge Caravan SE with the 3.3.


If you look at the compressor,two lines will come off of the compressor,then,on the large line,there will be a split off,like a y going to the rear of the van,I do not really think there is a different compressor for front,or rear air.

Heater does not blow hot air , only warm


it's possible that you have an air bubble in the cooling system and it will need bled. also possible that the heater core has a partial blockage.

The heater in my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan only blows warm air while on low. If the dial is turned to high it blows cold air. What is the problem?


It sounds like the heater valve is not operating. Find the valve on the engine firewall passenger side and manually open the valve. Find it by following the 3/4 inch heater hose to the firewall where it is connected to the valve. Most likely the cable ( or vaccum hose)from the temperature dial to the valve needs replacing.

2001 Excursion, 7.3L diesel, Front A/C warm, rear cool


it sounds like your front orifice tube needs replacing. the rear has an expansion valve in it. if the front orifice tube is becoming clogged it will restrict the flow of freon causing the air not to be as cool as the back.

I have a 2000 dodge caravan, no heat


Sounds like the air "blend" door might be inoperable. This door opens and closes a specified amount to regulate the amount of either cooled or heated air, as requested by the climate control unit. If the door is continually in the position which is bypassing the heater core (cold setting), the air will not get warm regardless of the condition/operation of the heater core. I'd suggest having this component checked.

2000 Dodge Caravan air conditioner problems


heating and cooling fans are generally one and the same. changing freon doesn't always fix the problem... did you have the system pressure checked for leaks first.

Second determine if the vents are opening properly (switching from heat to cooling) basically when you change to cool it closes air access to the heater core.
