There is an actuator at the left rear of the passenger compartment. The plastic gears get stripped or broken and when the rear air or heat is activated a servo which is trying to make ajustments to the rear control is clunking when trying to move the gears. There is more than one actuator used in these models, so to replace it you will need to access that area and either remove the broken one and take it to the parts man or let your dealer fix it. If you can stop the clicking by changing the rear air temp, this could be the problem. This would be the ac pump cycling this is normal most of the time the only time the pump runs continuesly is when the unit is set to max ac try that first if it still cycles in high your R134a pressure my be low, I dont recall the proper pressure how ever I was able to recharge mine my self by buying the R134A and recharge kit at the auto parts store. the clerk should be able to look that info up for you. It is a relitive easy task.

Yesterday, we met a lone mountaineer coming down the trail.

Take it to autozone they will do a free diagnostic test and tell you what is wrong with it....

you have 4 o2 sensors on the 2002 mountaineer. if you get under the car and look at the exhaust pipe where it goes up either side of the engine you will see it bolted into the exhaust, it has wires coming from it. they are the front 2, the rear 2 are about 2 feet farther to the rear (easier to see)

That is condensation and it is normal for water to come out of an air conditioner in the back of it.

A smell coming from a reverse cycle air conditioner may be a signal that the filter needs to be cleaned. A smell like engine exhaust might be present if the air conditioner motor is in need of repair.

I get hot air coming out of my air conditioner on the passenger side, while I get cold air coming out the drivers side. Can you tell me why and how do I find the schematic to fix it?

The air conditioner is low on refrigerant.

If there is no cold air coming from the air conditioner on a Honda Odyssey the condenserรŠmay have failed. No cold air coming from the air conditioner can also mean that the unit needs to be recharged.

Your fuel is low. Its telling you to check your gas gauge...

User Avatar

As of now, Air conditioner uses R22 refrigerant. In coming days ACs will come with refrigerants such as R410A, R407C etc.

User Avatar

Look at your temperature gage...If that is low, you might have a bad thermostat, which would keep your heater from working...I would check that first. also, check the cab air filter. i had the same problem. temp was fine but the filter was full.

Most modern vehicles have the fuel pump in the back or in most cases the fuel tank itself. If your check engine light comes on, take it in for a computer scan. Ask them to do a pressure test of the fuel pump also.

If the clicking noise you are hearing from the rear panel in your Mountaineer is coming from the passengers side, you could be hearing the relay contact opening or closing for the automatic headlights (if equipped), rear window defrost, rear wiper, or a host of other features. Behind the trim panel in the rear passengers side are a bunch of the control modules, including Security and Body Control.

Coming out of the vents around 43 degrees

If dust is coming from your air conditioner, you did not put in a filter. You will ruin your air conditioner running it without a filter. Also, the vents will get dusty. You need to clean them.

It means that, your air conditioner isn't gas powered, so oftentimes people are concerned about where this type of smell could be coming from. However, there are fluids in the engine and other parts of your air conditioner which can leak out, causing this exhaust fume odor.

Because while your air conditioner is activated the air from outside is coming in being purified and is then released so its like a vacuum of some sort!

User Avatar

sounds like your air conditioner compressor is bad.

You will find it on the larger diameter line coming out of the firewall from the evaporator. It should be pretty close to the firewall. You can look at a diagram of the A/C system on the website link below. Just follow the "How to locate the low side port" icon.

Similar problem. Tyrned out it was a hose that was slightly dry rotted and the cracks were keeping the system from establishing a good vacuum. Check for any hoses that might be cracked.

User Avatar

Check the hose coming out of the conditioner. It's a common failture for your camry.

This tells you that, because Mercury is very cratered, it must have no protection against the asteroids coming in. So, it is basically telling you that Mercury has a very thin atmosphere
