IAW pressure/temperature charts.....R134a (with a new or reasonably well conditioned compressor), will give you a gauge reading in pounds that equates to a specific temperature within the evaporator. theoretically you could have air at the equivilent low temperature that your gauges are reading ......however, warm air in your car flowing through the evaporator will effect the cold temperature within the evaporator because that is how air conditioning works...(the colder temperatures within the evaporator adsorbs the heat of the air passing through it) ect., .....thus, on a general basis you can add 11-15 extra degrees to the correlated temperature that your low side gauge reads and that would be the air temperature coming out your vents into the car.......for example: let say your low side gauge (after running for a few moments) equates to a temperature of 35 degrees f. then you could expect a temperature coming out of the vents to be around 46 - 50 degrees f. ..... so on and so forth.......bear in mind that a hot car with temperatures in the 100's of degrees will not register these kinds of temperatures until and unless you recirculate your inside air. It is only after you have reduced the temperatures within the vehicle to a reasonable level that you would find the above equation to have any merits.

The air should be comming out of the defroster vents. If so, most likely, it is the vacuum line that controls the vents. It is on top of the engine below the air cleaner, and runs to the front right of the engine. Buy the replacment so you know what your are looking for.

Should cold air return vents be closed in winter?

NO never close off your cold air return.this causes the blower fan to "starve" for air reducing the units efficiency. it may feel like cold air is coming out of the registers,but in-fact the cold air is being pulled into the register from the room so it can be heated by the unit. hope this helps.....

What can you do if you can't get heat from the rear upper vents in your 2001 Sienna?

I believe the upper vents are for A/C only. The floor vents are for the Hot air. Test your ceiling controls by moving the knob from cold to hot, you should hear the air pass from upper vents to lower vents. Providing of course you have selected REAR from the front control panel.

Is there a temporary fix if coolant mist is coming out of the AC vents on a 1998 Ford Ranger until you can get it to the shop?

I don't think it is coolant. It is just condensation caused from high humidity and the cold air. If it is coolant it should get on the floor and you should loose coolant.
