Hello,
total cost? or just for the coil.
If its total cost it's very reasonable and I would say a fair deal. If that's just for the coil thats at leaset 100% markup

2003 Ford expedition AC question they want to replace the condensor, compressor, evaporator coil and condensor coil. how reasonable does that sound?


you have a leak and if you can hear it or smell it its a good one, most likely its a connecting leak where ever the components connect to each other. with an internal seal leak, such as compressor or evaporator, your freon will last about a month,with a external connection leak, your freon last a couple days

Ac line freezing up from outside to house


AC lines freeze on the outside of the house when the insulation for the copper tubing is damaged or missing. if this is not the case in your situation, there may be a small refrigerant leak in the tubing.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

How much should I expect to pay to replace a leaking coil model number is CD5AXW030017?


Well first off - 99% of coils (evap/condenser) can be 'repaired.'

In which case - you're probably looking at a repair bill of between $100 -$200 depending on factors such as type of unit, i.e. window unit or central unit, easiness of repairing the leak, whether or not your refrigerant can be saved i.e. by pumping the unit down before repairing it - and average AC - labor rates in your area.

If you do require a 'coil change-out' - then the same factors apply - although I'd rather buy a 'new' window unit than pay for a coil to be replaced - because the cost will be close to the cost of a new AC.

If a central unit - you're looking at around $500-$700 to replace one of the coils.

good luck!

I have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid that smells funny when I turn on the AC. I have looked it up and the forums say to change the Cabin Air Filter. I can't find where the filter is?!


You do not have a cabin filter....Two things......you need to check (freon preasure) you may have a freon leak from the AC evap coil behind the instrrment panel,the smell is AC freon pag oil from the AC system, it smells funny. Or you may have mildew build up on your evap coil there is a spray to disinfect the coil.Check auto zone or pep boys....Good luck my friend

I am not getting cold air inside and I have a build of "dry ice" on the unit outside?


You have iced up your unit. Turn Tstat to off fan to on. This will thaw unit in a couple of hours. NOW The reason for the ice up condition has to be found. Low on gas,stopped up filter,stopped up evap.(inside) indoor fan inop. Start with simple first check filer,If you can see the evap coil see if it is stopped up. To charge the unit if low on gas you have to call a service tech. Ask for free estimate so you will know up front what it will cost. Remember if you add gas there is a leak. Make sure your tstat setting is not to low. If the evap coil is dirty you can clean this yourself. Use a stool brush with soft fiber. spray with 409 let soak and brush clean your coil. Rus

Your pressure sound pretty good. I would check the thermostat and the relay on the compressor. If you are getting no frost on your coil, that is usually a tall-tall sign of a bad compressor then it would be better to just replace the unit.

After running awhile ac blows warm and theres no water in evap tray.


Hi, Sounds like you have a leak in the lines somewhere and it is low on refrigerant (Freon). If the evaporator spends very much time below 32deg it will freeze up and you will feel very little air coming from the vents. The evaporator will have ice covering at least part of it depending on how much refrigerant is has in it. No refrigerant, there will be no ice or water. If the unit is properly charged, the larger of the two refrigerant lines at the condensing unit will sweat all the way back to the compressor but the compressor should be fairly dry. Restricted air flow will also cause one to freeze so check your air filter. If the ac tech thinks that the evap temp was ok at 22 deg, find another ac tech. 22 deg evap means its either too low on Freon, refrigerant filter drier is stopped up, a blockage in the refrigerant lines, too little air flow across evap coil or it could be that the evap and cond are sized wrong. The evap temp has to be above 32 deg. If it has Freon in it, you can use soap bubbles to check for leaks at the solder joints. Turn the unit off first for pressures to equalize. Let me know. kstfas
