Anyone Heard of this??

I recently bought a 1991 Wrangler Sahara. For some reason the previous owner disconnected the A/C receiver/drier and compressor. Then put a "T" connector in the middle of both the in/out hoses that go to the heater core. Then connected the "T" connector to the in/out of the evaporator.

I can only guess that they wanted more heat and didn’t care about air conditioning.

Now the big question......wouldn’t this ruin the evaporator? Running coolant through it. Personally I would rather have some A/C but wonder if it would ever work again once hooked back up to the receiver/drier and compressor.

I hope this all made sense. I took me a while to figure out what they did and it just doesn’t make sense.

Thoughts from the jeep experts out there ????

To tell the truth it sounds like it was their way of getting more cool air, not heat from what I can understand. You are right it ruined your ac evaporator.

I recently installed new ac and love it.

Get an underdash ac kit. Easier and works better than stock.

If I am reading the above correctly in my alcohol induced state
Then your compressor is not in the picture at all and you just have hot water running through both your heater core and the evap. This means not only does your air not work but the heat never turns off. Well it may still turn off but I doubt it is very comfortable in your heep

Disconnect the t stuff and use your ac comprssor for on board air.. I did and love it, who needs AC in a vehicle with a top and doors that are off the heep 90% of the time anyway. The 10% of the time I have the top and doors on are NOT when I want things cool
