Jasonburrwc84 I just had to replace my evaporator coil on my 2012 with 170,000. It was a beast of a job. Whole front inside of cab had to come out. $1000 labor. We replaced all the blower motors, heater core, etc to hopefully avoid having to go back inside of the dash. $2000 total job. Ugh. This new trucks are too complicated.

powerstrokeshellback Probably not.

Check the condenser, might need a good combing.

cmunsell sorry for the double post. I found another shop that is much more reasonable - any other parts i need to replace while i am in there doing the evap?

cmunsell confirmed with the shop, evaporator is the culprit. Now to find a shop that wont try to charge me 1600 just for the labor.

G8orFord The green tinge is from the dye in the stop leak.

I'd think if it was leaking bad enough for the PAG oil to be dripping, a top off can wouldn't last very long. If it is oil, stop using the A/C until you get the leak fixed, because you are low on oil and will probably seize the compressor. It doesn't take long for the condensation to start running off of the evaporator, especially in humid conditions. Houston is often pretty humid.

In any case, if you're getting the greenish liquid in the area where the evaporator would normally drain, it may very well be the evaporator.

powerstrokeshellback He means the oil in the system.

Perhaps poor choice of descriptors. Something is dripping and seems to be related to the ac system. There is also a green tinge to whatever it is as I can see it on the frame rails.

Are you checking your pressures or just dumping cans in?
Checking pressures - one can brings it back to ~35 psi


No apparent leaks on the top side/low port or up front at the compressor. Really showing under the passenger side door frame rail.
