92 Es Windshield Fogging....


Recommended Posts

I recently bought a 92 ES with 74k miles. first problem is the windshield fogs up when I

put the A/C on..I was wondering what this could be? It almost appears the leave residue

behind also. Anyone know what might cause this? thanks

A oily residue would indicate a freon leak in your evaporator. How well is your ac cooling down?

OR a leak in your heater coil.

Is the floor on either side of the console damp?

Is there a 'sweet' odor (other than air freshener, if used)?

A leaky heater coil will leave a residue on the windshield. . . . that when you clean the glass, within a day or two, the residue returns. (And it's 'oily' too!)

I've checked for moisture on the floor board and have never felt any wet spots...the A/C takes a bit to get cold but once it does,it's really cold. Also it seems to do it more when i step on the gas more than a slow take off. Could it be a A/C regulator valve?

I had the A/C sucked out and it had 1.74 in the system

The A/C tech said It calls for 2.00 high and 1.8 low. Seems

If I had a evaporator leak I would have alot less r12.

I cleaned the windshield really well and noticed no oil or

fogging for a week until I put on my defrost one rainy

night. Could there still be some oil in the evaporator

that could come through the vents when the heat is on?

Also,would the heater core only leak with the heat on?

This problem has me baffled and I don't have enough money

just to drop it off at a shop. Any ideas or help is much appreciated.
