Publication Date: December 8, 2014
FORD: 2013-2014 Escape
LINCOLN: 2015 MKC
This article supersedes TSB 14-0218 to update the Parts List.
Some 2013-2014 Escape vehicles built on or before 7/22/2014, 2015 MKC vehicles built on or before 7/13/2014 and 2013-2015 C-MAX and may exhibit an intermittent lack of Air Conditioning (A/C) and/or a loss of airflow from the vents. This may occur after extended operation in hot, humid conditions. This is likely due to the evaporator core icing.
Follow the Service Procedure Steps to correct the condition.
- Evacuate and Recharge the A/C System. Refer to the Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 412-00.
- Make sure the same amount of oil recovered is returned to the A/C system.
- Replace the cabin air filter. Refer to WSM, Section 412-00.
- Replace the evaporator temperature sensor. Refer to WSM, Section 412-00.
