The heat in the front of my 2001 Windstar blows cold air but the rear heat works fine.


The blend door actuator is the most likely cause. It is on the front of the heater box under the dash and looks like the picture below and #14 on the system exploded diagram. Remove the actuator, plug it back into it's cable, turn the key on and change the temperature setting to see if the actutor turns. If not, replace the actuator.

2001 Windstar- I have no heat or defrost. I do


I had this problem and noticed a faint clunking sound behind the radio. It was the blend door motor that needed to be replaced. The motor has small fine tooth plastic gears that wear out and won't open to allow heat.

The heater only blows hot air sometimes


it sounds like a bad blend door motor.these are controlled electrically and not with a cable like older vehicles did.

Heater vent won't switch from cold to hot. the heater core hoses are both hot and there is a dull thumping noise under the dash like a vacume switch is jammed


probably something feel down the defroster vent, have a helper check the vacuum motors as you switch from heat to cold, that should tell you wich one is jammed

2003 winstar no heat


Check the operation of the temperature control door. It is located in the center of the dash behind the radio. Look up between the gas pedal and heater case. It is white in color Move the temp knob while watching the actuator. If it is clicking it is bad. Good luck.
