Hey BOOMER_Red,Well took my truck to my local Ford dealership service center to have them look at the AC and they told me that the Evaporator Air Temp Sensor is the problem, that the sensor is telling the ac system that the air is too cold and to shut down the compressor to prevent freezing the system. To do the repair would be just shy of $1800. just to change out a $50 part and a optional $250 evaporator. Because they have to remove the dash and supposedly pull the evaporator and they highly recommend replacing the evaporator while they have everything pulled apart. I may just end up doing this all myself because I can buy the sensor for about $30-$40 and take the weekend to take the dash apart. If I do I'll try and do a write up on how I did it with maybe even a video or at least pics.
I see you've been speaking with Crystal via PM. Have you chosen another dealership?
Boomer...what's crazy about your post is....and if you go back and read mine..it that i RARELY run my a/c on what some would consider cold and I have the same issue. Is 76 driver's side and 77 passenger too cold for the system??? I don't think so. I know friends that leave their's on 68 and don't touch it for the entire summer!!! If it is the sensor...fine...but I NEVER had this issue on my 99...2002, or 2006.
Hi kenval and cwtex04,Well I'm hoping that is what my problem is. I still have time on my extended warranty so I maybe heading back to dealership soon with this information. When I asked about a evaporator temp sensor they looked at me like I was crazy
I want to check into these things further, and see if there's anything I can do on this end. Please send me a PM with your full name, phone number, VIN, current mileage, and preferred servicing dealership.
