Air blend actuator 2000 ford explorer is not working?

First, insure you do not have a vacuum leak or bad vacuum check valve. If this is all good, you may have to change actuator and every model has a different way to access this--some require dash removal. If you must do this, get a shop manual as the air bags CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS!

I have 4 codes tell me what I can do PO 171,174,191,193 ? on my 2004 ford exp

Check for vacuum leaks. Check under the plenum also. Ford had/has a problem with them... Last, but not probable, is the mass air flow sensor. Their rubber elbows suck. Even today.

Replacing the heater core, how do i do it

The dash panel has to be removed along with the steering wheel and steering column to access the plenum box. The plenum box then has to be removed to get to the heater core. This requires evacuating the AC system, draining the radiator, disconnecting all lines and removing the box. Replacing the heater core is simple when you get to this point.

If the problem is lack of heat(not a physical leak), the problem is more likely with the blend doors on the explorer. This is a very common fail mode.

1999 WINDSTAR front heater not working blowing cool air, rear heater works fine

There is a huge problem with the blend doors on the Ford Windstars. To access the Blend doors, the dash must be pulled and the plenum box removed. It is very labor intensive. Alternatively, there is a way to remove the glovebox, make an incision in the plenum box, and replace the blend door. There is more info on the problem here:
