Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
This problem first started when i noticed if i was going up a hill and had to increase speed, the airflow would automatically change to the windscreen. then when i was going down the hill, it would change back to blowing on my face. this happened for a couple of weeks, but now it wont change at all, it just stays blowing on the windscreen, even if i select face or feet on the dashboard it still wont change. can anybody help me with this problem please?
You have a vacuum problem . could be a leaky hose or broken vacuum line.
these flaps are controlled by vacuum from your engine. check the black hose from the canister in the engine compartment that goes to your firewall near your evaporator coil. this is the supply vaccum line going to the switch. if you don't have a vacuum source here, then trace the source.
