Question about Heating & Cooling
HI, I have a 1997 Ford Clubwagon/Econoline E150 and the air conditioner vents for the front dash do not put out very much cool (air no matter what speed the dash selector is set on). The Clubwagon actually has switches on the dash for the front & back of the van. The a/c works great for the rear, which I believe is on a different fan, but the a/c for the back vents comes out fast and cold!. But the front vents don't put out much air at all, and it stays the same no matter which fan speed is selected. I have replaced the Blower motor resistor for the front(no change), and checked the front blower motor itself (gave it 12 volts directly and it ran like a champ. Anyway, I think it might be the dash selector switch for the front a/c but I don't know how to get it out to check it or replace it. Can anyone help? Could the problem be something else? The 134a freon checks as full and the back vents push out cold air, but on this clubwagon the back has it's own condenser.
Have you checked for a vacuum leak on selector switch or under dash? And al freon goes thru same a/c pump. Cold rear means you have cold front. check for vacuum leak

Had a similar problem with my 88. There is a vacuum line that ran across behind the passenger side dash that looked like it was plugged by the conversion company, but the plug fell off. This was causing an open line and a vacuum leak. I plugged it with a piece of shrink wrap and tape, worked great.
Wish the rear unit put out good air.
