Response on condensor. As I am not a mechanic, only a vehicle owner, I haven't spent much time under the hood, only to make temporay fixes I discover. Accessing the condensor is a mystery to me. The shop guys say "It's under that big boxy looking thingy against the firewall on the left." (And shop rates are $125.00 an hour!!!!.... I should be a millionaire!!) Sorry I don't have a good answer for you. Good luck!

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 4.7L engine. Air conditioning only blows cold air when vehicle is moving; warm air when idling... please help. Thanks!


Start by checking the condensor fan to make sure it is running while you have the ac on. If it is not blowing check the condensor fan motor fuse that is located in the totally integrated power module. If the fuse is bad it is most likely that the condensor fan motor is bad and is drawing too much amperage and will need to be replaced. Now I am assuming it has an electric condensor fan motor. Make sure that the condensor is free of debris, a dirty condensor will cause high discharge pressures that will cause poor or insufficient cooling at idle.

Where is the orifice tube on my 1998 gmc sierra air conditioner system


In front of your radiator is the condensor. On the passenger side of the condensor are two lines. One runs parallel with the condensor fins (upper), and the other runs at an angle (lower). The lower line in the condensor is where your orifice is located. Properly evacuate the system and remove the fitting on the lower line. the orifice is located in the the tube that is at an angle on the condensor Look inside the tube and you will see the top of the orifice. looks like a crosshair. Carefully remove it with good needle nose pliers. DO NOT TWIST WHILE TRYING TO REMOVE IT. Just pull it out of the tube. It may be a little stubborn. Once removed, install the new orifice and replace the o ring on the line fitting. Have the system checked for leaks and recharge with freon.

A/C system leaks checked with dye outside under hood and to compressor and found no leaks. Where else would system leak?


Good possibility that it is leaking at the condensor. This is located in front of the radiator. Check the lines going in and out of it and the condensor (usually in the front bottom). Although uncommon, the evaporator could be leaking also. This is located near the heater core and is hard to get to

Need to remove ac condensor


you will have to evacuate the system first. The condensor is located just in front of the radiator. You will have to disconnect the lines going to it and un bolt it. it's easer to do with the radiator removed.

Can't find the ''cabin air filter'' on my 1996 Honda Odyssey


A 1996 Honda Odyssey is not equipped with a cabin air filter. If I was looking for a restriction in the cabin air, the first place I would look is on the inlet side of the A/C condensor. ALL cabin air travels through the A/C condensor ALL of the time. (The heater core only sees air when the temp door is not directing the air around it and always after it has been through the condensor first.) I have seen gunk as hard as concrete clogging the condensor just from layers of dirt that collects on the wet coils then dries.

When the ac is running it makes a bubbling gargling sound. when the car takes off from a stop you can hear water rushing and rolling about the engine compartment.


Sounds like you might have a plugged drain hose from your condensor overflow reservoir. All of the water that drips off the condensor while you run your AC has to go somewhere. It's located under the passenger floor board and if it's not draining properly you can get a lot of water sitting in there.

A/c cooling fan for my 88 mr2 non turbo wont turn


Sounds like the condensor fan relay is "sticking" - you are sure this is the condensor fan, and not the radiator cooling fan? As electric radiator cooling fans often run after the car is turned off - this is normal - If you are sure it is the condensor fan and it is on with the AC off - Id bet it was the relay responsible (versus the AC control unit) - Locate and remove the relay - if you have a comparable one you can substitue (Make 100% sure it uses the same plug and wiring schematic) and try that - if it now works properly you can try to locate one at your parts store....Hope that helps some....DD
