Excess Condensation

Excess Condensation

Postby barbercr [OP] » Nov 08 2020, 2:10am

My 2012 2500 HD 6.6 has a lot of condensation (more than the norm) when I run the AC to the point where it creates a lot of smoke from the passenger side. After research one of the issue could have been a dirty filter in which I cleaned (Banks Filter) and that didn't fix the issue. Just wondering if anyone had this issue and some possible solutions? At one point I was wondering if when I had the turbo replaced and they took the cab off if that might have contributed to the problem, but it started approx a month after that. Now I was back east NY & PA for six years (work) and now I am in CA (bought in CA), I wonder if that would be a contributing factor. Just trying to find any possible cause and what's the solution. Thanks in advance.

The dirty filter would be the cabin air filter, not the intake filter. My 2013 pisses like a racehorse when it is humid here. You can check your cabin air filter, and check the refrigerant charge and temp change, but in the end I think you will find nothing is wrong. Make sure the water outlet is pointed in the best direction to avoid the exhaust. You could probably put a tube extension on it if needs be. It is probably dripping onto the frame rail and splashing onto the exhaust, causing the steam.

Did you have to cut out the cover and install using the kit, also how did you clean the evaporator? I would assume just blow/vacuum out all the junk that would be built in there.

If you dont have an air filter then you dont have to clean it. I wouldn’t install one if it didnt have it, they are a nuisance. Mine has no filter, my evap core was very clean. Just pull the 3 screws on your fan off and lower the fan. You can see a little, feel a bit, and look using your phone camera.
