I need some suggestion regarding the aircon of my every 660 van. My aircon works fine, the only problem is, how can i seal the heat coming out from its engine. the engine is located in front under the seat.

try using insulating material (the ones used beneath the roofs of houses). thay're usually available home improvement centers/hardwares. the only problem is that thy're not adhesive backed. you could use duct tape and contact adhesive for them to work. if you're really nuts, you could used sound deadening material (the one used in high end car audio installs). they're very, very effective and easy to apply (because they're adhesive backed) but theyre really expensive.

Good for you that your AC is working. I am still working on van and saving enough money to have it Aircon.

I have the same problem because my engine is in front just like the L300 van. That's the usual problem of front engine van when they get old or their original insulation is taken out.

The cheapest you can do is to put the thickest insulation you can find in a hardware store or have it stitch under your carpet. It looks like an aluminum wrapper that sandwich into a foam. They use this on the roof of houses. You can also buy in ACE or in DIY a ready made insulation that is place under the hood of the car. You can cut or have someone sewn it under your seat and on the panels of the van that has a high level of heat. Do check under your seat the weather strip rubber just like the strip in you car doors, it might be worn out. It might be also one of the source of heat or steam entering the van since our radiatior is also found under the seats. Also put insulation under the center panel console of the van where the stick shift is located.

But ask around in Banawe where to buy a car insulation because they can tolerate heat better than the one found in hardware but a little pricey.

Dyanamite is an insulation brand suggested on another local forum but i have not ask where it could be purchase coz i am still working on changing my engine.

Goodluck!

Mr. Yellowturtle, it's called dynamat. It's availablethrough highend car audio retailers. It's kinda expensive kaya I stuck with the roof insulation na lang.

Dynamite??? under your butt?? - sounds scary duh! :P

Mine is not too hot but i plan to put something in there to ward-off heat as well. Im thinking on using what you guys suggested here. but im also thinking of improvising - like use wind/air to insulate the under-the-seat engine. since i can gather enough air while gaining speed i just only need find a way to 'gather/concentrate' them under the front seat. im thinking of putting something in front (just beneath where my horn is located) - something like a big(not big enough for me to hide it) funnel that can accumulate air and course them thur a tube which ends to a square metal sheet with holes all over - or some material which absorbs heat and easily cools off when insulated/fanned. much something like that..

... just thinkin out loud...

Just put a small auxiliary fan under your seat na lang. Sa MTV pimp my ride they've put a two small fan parang sa cpu ng computer inside the seats upholstery...pero para sa heater yun eh.hihihi

I think its best to place a customized bumper just like in the pictures. Surely that will redirect the air directly towards your engine that will eventually dissipate the heat under your seat.

Another suggestion is to buy the thickest roof insulation have it stitch under your vans carpet para hindi kaagad masira.

PS: When hydration bladder bag was first introduce in the Philippines it was so expensive that i made my own bladder bag. I bought a 1 liter hydration bladder for P250.00 and a roof insulation. I wrap it around the bladder to customized the fit and use a duct tape to attach the ends. I've used it several times when I drive going to Pangasinan and it remains cold even when I've reached my destination. Another thing I did was copy a 3 liter bladder bag (backpack style) and have an insulation integrated in the bag.(P700 lang lahat-lahat compared to 3k to branded bags) Buhay pa rin ngayon and use it for biking.
