Question about 2003 Jaguar S-Type
Hi...I live in LA and will be going to vegas soon....if I take my car to you can you fix or replace the blend door? and Aprox how much will it cost?

I have the same car and had same problem. Your water pump needs to be replaced. That is where the leak is. Not a major job nor that expensive. I recommend using the green 2-year coolant vs. the orange 5-year coolant. The 5 year coolant does not protect well against cavitation (exploding bubbles) which is what caused your water pump leak. (You can research this on the I-net). The standard 2-yr coolant does protect against cavitation.

SOURCE: Blend door not working.
The bleed door controls air temp not where it comes out, dash, floor, defroster, this is most likely a mode control switch problem, that switch is on the ac control head.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee sucks air from the outside via a hole on the passenger side of the cowl. It's under the black plastic piece that runs under the wipers.
The air is then sucked via the blower and blown into the housing where the heater core and A/C evaporator core live.
The blend door is inside this housing as well.
This also depends on if you have regular climate control or the more advanced ATC digital climate control found on some of the Limiteds.
You could possibly take out your glovebox and see if there are any broken pieces going to the door accuator.
Otherwise if it's internal, you'll need to take out the heater/ A/C housing.
To get to this housing, you have to take apart your entire dash, lift the top dash cover off, and then you'll see the housing. You could possibly check for a few thing there.
Most everything there is vacuum controlled.
You have to drain your antifreeze and have your A/C freon discharged (use a professional to capture the freon).
There are 5-6 nuts holding the housing to the firewall. You have to reach these from the engine compartment.
Disconnect your A/C lines and heater hoses. Pull out housing.
This is definately an advanced project, thus the reason for the high pricing.
Hopefully you can get it fixed without having to take this Jeep apart entirely. Try diagnosing with a vacuum gauge if necessary before tearing it apart.

On the passenger side of the engine compartment near the radiator you will see a coolant control valve that has heater hoses running from it to the heater core inside vehicle.This is probably going bad.You can clamp off the hoses with some pliers while it is acting up and see if this stops the heat.If it does then it is probably bad.
