Having problems with your 2000 Ford Expedition ?

Air condition doesn't kick on after i changed the orific

\015 I bleed out the high side, then i changed the orifice. now the compressor doesn't want to take in the oil so i tried by passing the compressor and still the compressor doesn't turn on what should i do?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 18-01-2021

Answers :

First, that raises the question of why did you replace the orifice? Was it full of metal particles? Like possibly a failed compressor?

Then, why are you trying to put oil in it? I seiously doubt that there was much oil loss in just replacing an orifice (maybe 1/8 ounce?) Unless you flushed the system, there shouldn't be any need to add any oil at all.

Did you actually check the clutch coil to see if it was any good? Is it possible the clutch is burned up?

Then there is the question of how did you go about "bypassing" the compressor? You do understand that the clutch is controlled by the A/C compressor clutch relay, which is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module? Poking around on the wrong wires with the wrong setup can cost you a PCM in a heartbeat.

Then there is the question of which engine your Expedition is equipped with, and whether it is equipped with manual or automatic temperature control...these systems operate completely different and are set-up differently for the various engines available that year.
