Does the hissing sound happen when the rear blower is on?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It would come and go at first but now it is whenever the AC is on
Ford Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

You're hearing refrigerant flow through the orifice at the rear evaporator core. It echoes through the overhead duct work, and is rythmic with the cycling of the compressor. You'll hear the same "hissing" noise from every Expy/Navi with rear A/C. It's more pronounced when the vehicle is a bit low on refrigerant.

but only the rear AC it is not making that noise when just the front ac is on
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ok thank you very much
Ford Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

You could have a slight leak and the refrigerant is slightly low, this could cause a hissing sound. I would say evac and recharge the system adding leak detection dye and drive it for a while, then use a uv light to find the leak.

Replace the leaking part and recharge, and the hissing noise will go away.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
