Evap leak

96, EB 4.0, 125K

My evap core leaked all the ac oil. Shop wants almost a grand to fix it.
Does not look like such a hard repair. Anyone do this before?

Also,
is this a good time to change the blend door when the evap is off? Can you
get the blend door as seperate piece or u have to buy the plenum.

thanks

I would not think the evap core should be tghat much to replace. Is
something lese shot, like the compressor?
Maybe another estimate is in order.

Re: Evap leak

The OEM part is 450 (but I can get it for 300). It includes the Evap and
the entire housing. Ford does not sell the bare core. The rest is labor and
the A/C charge.

I'm planning on getting a name brand evap core only ($120), doing it
myself, then bringing it in for a $100 evac and charge.

Im also changing the dryer since it was exposed to air. Its only 50 bucks.
