I just gotten my van, love it but about 1 month after i bought it, there was a noise under the hood. took it into a body shop and they said it was the cooling system. they had to replace the whole thing because a blade was hitting something and leaving metal shavings everywhere in side the hood. got it replaced 500.00, winter was ahead so there was no need for air.. winter passed and still no air for the summer had no more money to have it look at so we suffered and sucked up the heat last summer 2016. but winter is almost over again and if i could get some help to figure out the problem or anyone how has has similar problems with theirs.

HOSE WAS BROKEN, COULDN'T GET A REPLACEMENT HOSE ANYWHERE. I WAS TOLD BY FORD DEALER HAD TO HAVE ONE MADE. PLUS CONDENSER WAS PLUGGED, HAD TO BE REPLACED AT MY COST. FORD SHOULD HAVE COVERED THIS BECAUSE YOU SELL A VEHICLE THAT YOU CAN'T GET REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR.

THANK YOU

Second time since owning this van in only 2 years that AC has stopped working. Paid $800 last summer to have AC fixed which worked until this summer when we actually needing AC. It suddenly stopped working today when I had my 3 small children loaded into the van. I felt bad for them being in a hot van with no way to let any air in at all in the back.
