I have a 2004 Chevy Express 1500 Hightop Conversion van. Front AC blows cold. Cannot get the rear ceiling AC outlets to blow cold. Van has a rear unit also. Not much info on conversion vans. Mechanic wants to drop the center ceiling to look for a blend door? ๐Ÿค”
Thx for any help. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™

Honestly could be any number of things from a blend door to a missing/loose vacuum line. Best way to find what's wrong is do as the mechanic suggests and tear into things to find the culprit.

Blend doors are on units that have a separate temp control or that do defrost. Never seen a blend door on a rear ac unit from a conversion company. They are slaves to the front controls and are usually either all heat or all cool with their own fan control only. If it's a factory (GM) unit maybe it's different.
The coil needs only two things to remove heat. Air movement and refrigerant movement. If the fan is moving air well then you have a lack of refrigerant flow.
Sounds like a TXV problem.(Thermostatic Expansion Valve) The rear units have TXV controlled coils.
If it ever had a compressor fail, any lines replaced or a complete loss of charge, it could have a clogged TXV.
Is the rear unit mounted on the floor and ducted to the ceiling or is it mounted high? The floor mount unit lines can also become oil logged if the TXV is faulty/clogged.
Most mechanical repair shops do AC work as a sideline. Take it to a certified Automotive AC shop.
