Good Morning, I have a Ford E150 1995 with rear air conditioner. I have seen anti freeze on the ground by the left rear tire. Is that a metal line or rubber hose. Thanks for your any help you can give me.

The plumbing to the rear heater is metal lines under the body and then connect with rubber to the core in the heater, with the age of the van the leak is most likey the metal lines corroded. If you don't need the rear heater operational, the lines can be by-passed in the front of the van [ it will not affect the cooling system].

My air conditioner is not working on my 2005 Nissan quest se. what may be the problem? it was working fine yesterday. there is plenty of antifreeze

anti freeze has nothing to do with air conditioning
shaking at speed is , tires, wheel alignment, suspension parts or balance and again is not related to air conditioning
working one day and not the next suggest a leak in the ac system and now the low pressure switch is not allowing the compressor to work
So to cover your problems
take the car to an accredited auto ac specialist shop and have it checked for leaks and gas
then take it to an accredited suspension for a thorough check of the front end , then have a wheel alignment done

Have a pressure test done on the radiator to find the leaks.. Have a compression test done to check for gasket and cracks. If the anti-freeze is not up in the 60% concentration then it may have frozen the coolant.

Brakes grab and anti skid light comes on during acceleration

Check your rear Emergency brake shoes inside the rear rotors. When the brake lining falls off of the metal backing, the linings get ground up inside the rear rotors. The pulverized lining coats the ABS count sensors and the vehicle thinks both rear wheels are turning at different speeds.

That is when automatic anti skid kicks in. The brakes try to stop the spin of the fastest wheel and intermittently applies the brakes.

Remember there are 2 sets of brakes on each rear wheel. The calipers are visible but the drums are concealed as part of the rotor housing.

Need to Add air conditionaer coolant

R-134. Your local parts place might have a kit that has everything you need to add R-134 FREON. I've also seen them at wal-mart too. Follow the instructions exactly as written.When you say Air Conditioner coolant I am assuming that you need the Freon and NOT the Anti-Freeze that goes in the little tank mounted on the firewall.

Just purchases a 1997 Ford Explorer AWD V8 and the heater isn't working. Put anti-freeze in it last night and it started to get warm. No such luck this morning, it's blowing cold air. The outside...

OK, recheck the anti-freeze level and fill if necessary. There may be a leak in the system.
If it is filled up to capacity (also check that the upper radiator hose is full of fluid by squeezing), then the next thing to check is the two heater hoses that enter the firewall for the heater core. If they aren't getting hot at normal operating temperature, the heater core is plugged up and will have to be flushed or replaced.

If the heater core hoses are hot, then a blend door problem exists for shuttling hot air from the heater core to the interior of the vehicle.

Good luck on this repair.

2004 Ford Explorer rear window washer does not squirk fluid. Pumps leaves fluid on ground behind left rear tire

I'd have to say that the small rubber hose that takes the fluid to the washer nozzel is broken or split somewhere along its length.

I have a 2000 Ford Windstar with the 3.8 v-6. The problem is the anti freeze line that runs underneath the length of the vehicle to the back left side which line is inlet and which is outlet? Thank you

You'll have to follow the lines as they leave the water pump. If they are arranged at the rear heater in a top, bottom fashion, the top is always the input line.

My Air Conditioner Drain is plugged. Where is the

-- open the driver's door
-- locate where the air conditioner blower box is attached to the passenger side of the firewall - see photo #1 - look to the immediate right at the top of the gas pedal arm
-- condensation flows toward the front of the vehicle through the firewall at the leftmost edge of the air conditioner blower box - drain channel
-- open the hood and stand next to the front wheel on the driver's side
-- look down at the firewall over the battery and to the passenger side of the brake master cylinder - see photo #2
-- locate the small diameter metal lines running horizontally and attached to the engine compartment firewall
-- locate the hole in the engine compartment firewall panel behind the small diameter metal brake lines
-- this hole leads to the drain opening in the air conditioner blower box mounted in the passenger compartment
-- follow the brake lines as they run from under the vehicle and turn toward the front wheel on the driver's side
-- locate the hole in the engine compartment panel behind the brake lines
-- insert a short length of stiff wire into the hole through the engine compartment panel to unblock the drain hole

1994 Ford taurus overheating, no heat...

when you replaced all of that stuff on the vehicle did you make sure that you don't have a vapor lock in the highest anti-freeze line? to fix run vehicle with line disconnected so air can escape then reconnect. if that dont work you will need to put a T splice in the top anti-freeze line so when the vehicle is running you can open the valve and let air out.

Brake lights staying on

I had the same problem with my Ford Explorer it was caused by what's called a rasp valve for the anti-lock brake's.The valve is mounted on the frame(left side)just behind the tire.The valve look's like the letter T you'll see two or three brake line's going in and coming out of it.It was a dealer only part, which mean's you can get it at a Ford dealership only. Hope this was helpful good luck. Tim
