Factory Evaporator Style?

Year: 97
Make: Dodge
Model: Dakota
Engine Size: 4 Cyl
Refrigerant Type: 134 A
Country of Origin: United States

Hello,

Does anybody know the style of the evaporator for a 97 Dodge Dakota (Since, the evaporator is mounted under the dash it is hard to physically see the evaporator, and tell what style it is)? I need to find out the whether it is tube & fin, serpentine, or parrleal flow style. To be able to know if I will be able to flush the evaporator. FYI: My compressor failed, and I will have to flush the lines, condenser (tube & fin style), and if the evaporator is a tube & fin, or a serpentine style. I will flush the evaporator as well. Also, I have checked my repair manuals for the evaporator style, but it does not list it, and I called the Dodge dealership, Autozone, ect, but no luck.

Is there a specific site that would most makes, and models factory evaporator styles?

In addition, is there some type of general rule that the factory condenser will be the same style as the factory evaporator style?


Thanks in advance,


Josh

Plate/Fin. There is no rule that the evaporator and condenser will be the same. The condenser is a serpentine as best I can tell from what is available to us. So you can flush them with the PROPER materials.
