Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
The Heater Blend Door Actuator is broken. Cost 40 dollars to fix if you do it yourself. I just fixed mine this morning. You need to remove the bottom panel under the cup holders, Four srews two on each side. it is located up behind the radio. no you do not need to remove the radio.

I do not know what the name of the part is, but it is a white box that is 4 inches by 4 inches and 3/4 inches thick located behind the radio and the heater controls. It's fastened with three screws to the heater core housing. Do not buy a new part, take the old one off first. The part that extends into the heater core housing should be firm and must move very little. I have an extra one and i'll be auctioning it on ebay as soon as i find the name of the part. Look for hellcarptrucker on ebay in the coming days.

There are a couple of that must be present and true for this to be a correct but common diagnosis. The temperature guage must read in the normal range. The rear heat must be able to switch from hot to cold. If these facts are present, it is probably a Temperature blend door actuator. The part is available at the dealer of aftermarket. The aftermarket manufacturer is Dorman products, the dorman number is 604-203. It is readily available at oreilly auto parts and autozone i know.
The repair procedure is easy. remove the radio with special u-shaped tools. unbolt and slide out climate control head, it is not necessary to disconnect the climate control head. look at the big black plastic case directly behind the radio and climate control head. there will be a small box, exactly the same as the one from the parts store. three 7mm bolts attach this to the case. remove the bolts and pull straight back. pay attention because the shaft is slotted so you know how to put it back in. replace the box and reassemble.

It sounds like the blend door is broken. This is a common problem. There is a blend door motor located on the bottom of the heater/AC plenum which is located behind the dash. You can remove this motor and see if the door moves correctly. If it does not, you will probably have to replace the whole unit. Ford does not have just the door. The new unit comes with a new evaporator core and is pretty expensive. A used one might be found but remember, this is a very labor intesive job and the used one will be close to the same age as the one you are replacing.

Make sure that the heat control that controls the water flow through the heater core is working. If you are not getting any water through the core, you will not get any heat.

How much oil should ford windstar 2000 3.8 litre reduce at each oil change after 5000 km?

The heat in your car works similar to the radiator in your engine, coolant hoses from your engine connect to a 'heater core' (basicaly a tiny radiator) in vent cavities. These Heater cores could be clogged. there is a bypass on those hoses, this is why there is no problem with the cirrculation of coolant. I had this problem in a Taurus. simply romove the heater core, and use high pressure water to de-clogg the tiny radiator

This is a common problem with WJ Grand Cherokees, it's called a "Blend Door".
In the heating and cooling system you have doors that open and close to give you warm and cold air and a mix of both.
What you have is an arm that pulls a door with peg on top, the peg tends to snap off. As you said your dealer replaced the blend door or doors I would take it back as is has blend door all over it.
Yahoo and youtube "jeep grand cherokee blend door repair"
I had a 02 limited blend doors issues (note the issueS) and was lucky to have it still covered.
I do hope this helped.
