SOURCE: Where is the air conditioning drain hose for a

It’s in the hardest place to reach they could put it. Get under your car and follow the firewall near the center. You'll see a small hose poking out that you can barely reach with an air hose wand. Debris often plug the drain hose. If you hear water sloshing on the passenger side in the dash and/or the passenger side carpet is soaked, blow air through the drain tube to unblock it. Also the grommet around the hose there at the firewall can deteriorate and let condensed water blow back into the driver’s side floor pan. With a lot of effort you can pack silicon sealant around the drain tube at the exiting firewall location and solve that problem. With real effort you can place silicon around it from the interior also. If you don't have a compartment filter or your filter is old and ineffective, you'll be amazed at how much debris sets on your condenser coil down there in the center of the dash (if your airflow is less than you remember and not as cold, the condenser coil is likely covered in debris)...and it's almost impossible to clean it out without disassembling the dash. That's another story on how to fix...

look for a hose hanging down underneath the car floor board ,most likely plugged up at the opening of the drain hose. From road splash. Use a coat hanger wire to open the drain hose!

SOURCE: location of air conditioning condensation

These hoses are located usually a little left of center, standing in front of the truck and come out of the firewall. Usually a 90 degree elbow, black, about 1" in diameter.

How to remove heater core on a 1994 isuzu pickup


Removal & Installation

Fig. 1: When installing the new heater core take great care not to bend or damage the fins or tubing

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the engine coolant into a suitable container. CAUTION
    When draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  3. Disconnect the heater hoses. Be careful not to damage the core by pulling on the hose to remove. Cut the hoses if they will not come off easily.
  4. Remove the instrument panel.
  5. Disconnect the resistor assembly.
  6. If possible, disconnect and move the duct (non air conditioning) or the evaporator housing (air conditioning) to the right to gain clearance for the heater unit. If equipped with air conditioning, do not disconnect air conditioning system until absolutely necessary. Refer to Section 1 for discharging, evacuating and recharging the system.
  7. Remove the instrument panel stay and heater unit.
  8. Disassemble the heater unit by removing the duct, mode control case, core assembly and heater core. To install:
  9. Assemble the heater unit by installing the duct, mode control case, core assembly and heater core.
  10. Install the heater unit and instrument panel stay.
  11. Connect the duct (non air conditioning) or the evaporator housing (air conditioning) to the heater unit. Evacuate and recharge the air conditioning system if the system was discharged to remove the evaporator assembly.
  12. Connect the resistor assembly.
  13. Install the instrument panel as outlined in this section.
  14. Connect the heater hoses. Be careful not to damage the core by pulling on the hose.
  15. Refill the engine coolant into a suitable container.
  16. Connect the negative battery cable and check for leaks.

How to take the steering wheel off a 1995 2.2 liter pontiac sunfire to change the heater core


Replacing the heater core in a Pontiac Sunfire is a very difficult and complex process. The heater core is kept within the car's heating/air conditioning module behind the instrument panel. So many other parts have to be drained and removed from the car to reach the heating/air conditioning unit that you may be better off leaving this to a professional mechanic--especially one licensed to work on air conditioning units.
Things You'll Need:

  • Wrench
  • Container
  • Air conditioning reclaimer
  • Hose clamp pliers
  • Screwdrivers
  • Heater core
  • R134a refrigerant
  • Recharge service hose
  1. Removing the Core
    • Make sure the car is cool, the front wheels are facing forward and the ignition switch is off. Drain the engine coolant by removing the drain plug at the radiator and letting the coolant pour into a clean container, then do the same at the engine block's drain plug. Recover the refrigerant by connecting an air conditioning reclaimer to the system high and low side fittings as its instructions state.
    • Disconnect the evaporator lines to the evaporator by removing its bolt and disconnect the heater hoses from the core by loosening the hose clamps with clamp pliers. Remove the drain tube from the evaporator case. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    • Remove all the trim covers and panels from the instrument panel; some of these are screwed on and some require a flat bladed tool. Remove all air distribution ducts from the panel, the air bags, the steering wheel, the radio, the tilt and washer levers and all electrical connectors, then unscrew and remove the instrument panel from the car. Unbolt the cross vehicle beam, remove its wiring harness and remove the beam.
    • Remove the air outlet in the floor. Disconnect the wiring harness for the heater/air conditioner and the electrical connectors at the blower's motor and resistor.
    • Remove the heater/air conditioning module by removing its attaching bolts and the assembly screw. Remove the heater cover case by removing its heat stakes and screws and remove the heater core.
    • Install the replacement core into the heater/air conditioner module, then re-connect the heater core cover case. Install the assembly in the vehicle, aligning the mounting bracket to the front of the dash slot and mounting bolt hole. Reconnect the electrical connectors and wiring harness and install the floor air outlet.
    • Reinstall the cross vehicle beam and every component of the instrument panel. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
    • Install the drain tube back on the evaporator case. Connect the hater hoses and the evaporator lines.
    • Recharge the air conditioner. Connect a can of R134a refrigerant to the air conditioner's low side service fitting with a recharge service hose and a high pressure gauge to the high side fitting. Open the service hose valve while the car runs with the A/C at the max and let the vapor flow until the gauge reads between 225 and 250 PSI.
    • Refill the cooling system at the radiator filler neck. Use fresh coolant if the old liquid is dirty in any way

The air conditioning in my 2005 T&C stopped working. Right before it stopped there was a "burnt" smell coming through the vents. What happened?


No air coming from air conditioning vents
  1. Check the air conditioner fuse and replace as necessary.
  2. Air conditioner system discharged. Have the system evacuated, charged and leak tested by an MVAC certified technician, utilizing approved recovery/recycling equipment. Repair as necessary.
  3. Air conditioner low pressure switch defective. Replace switch.
  4. Air conditioner fan resistor pack defective. Replace resistor pack.
  5. Loose connection, broken wiring or defective air conditioner relay in air conditioning electrical circuit. Repair wiring or replace relay as necessary. Air conditioner has a smell when used
    1. The air conditioner evaporator drain hose is blocked or partially restricted, allowing condensation to build up around the evaporator and drainage tray. Clear the drain hose where it exits the passenger compartment.
    2. Check compressor clutch wiring, electrical connections and compressor clutch, and repair or replace as necessary.

After my air conditioning has been on for about 30 mins it sometimes drips liquid on my feet - what is causing this?


The air conditioning coil that cools the car should be in a tray that collects the condensate and drains under the car or perhaps down through the engine compartment. After running the air if you pull into your driveway and stop you should see water dripping. If the drain gets plugged it will overflow the drain pan and drip in the car. This may be what is happening. Look around near the firewall for the drain pipe/hose. Be careful if the engine has just been run.
