Heat wont blow out front vents on my econo line

I have a 1990 ford econo line van. pretty clean too but i didn't know for a long time the rear vents had a control for on an off under the dash. it takes it a while but it gets warm,and after riding a bit it will have you comfortable. but the front doesnt blow at all. i wanted to know what to do about these problems and find out where is the anti lock brake pump to disconnect it cause my brake light comes on an off on my dash an i know there is nothing wrong with my brakes.

Hello,

I at one time had an econoline and the fan not blowing was the blower motor on the passenger side firewall in the engine compartment (a couple of bolts and a plug). May be a secondary fan for the rear of the vehicle this is why the rear is getting air flow.
Brakes--there is a sensor on the master cylinder or on the distribution block. If you unplug that sensor the light should go out--if it does you have a bad sensor.
Hope this helps--

SOURCE: brake light nad rear anti lock light wont go off

Check the fluid level, top it off if needed, look for a fill to line on the side of the reservoir. Check rear brake shoes/pads, are they too worn? Replace with new ones. Bleed all 4 wheels, starting with the farthest one, then go to next farthest, and so on. Look for leaks inside the rear wheels. Adjust rear brakes (if shoes not pads).

SOURCE: serpentine belt broke on 87 ford econo van

ps...you do not have to Post another Question....just Add a Comment to this question.

"HOW TO": I professionally prefer the Serpentine Tensioner Tool.
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s).
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (located on the Tensioner Pulley rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley and Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.

Brakes wont work pedal goes to floor changed the master cyclinder bleed brakes and still have same problem 1990 ford aerostar van


What is the condition of both front calipers? both rear wheel cylinders? and the complete brake lines and hoses of your van? If they are all good with no traces of leakage, then did you bleed the Mastercylinder on the bench first before installing in the van? Did you gravity bleed the 4 wheels first? did you bleed from the farthest wheel first? Are you using a new Master and not a re-built??

It's 20 degress outside and my 1998 navigator only blows heat from the rear vents, cold air from the front vents. What could cause this problem. I know the heating coil is not out because it blows heat in...


Hi, there is a separate heater core for the front vents, but my guess is your blend door actuator or the door itself is to blame. Just for grins, make sure both heater hoses are hot as they connect to the heater core in the engine compartment. If it's really the blend door, there is a pretty good answer at the following post: http://heatertreater.net/Lincoln%20Navigator%2097-02.htm
Though it's a pain, I would check the actuator first. You have to remove the center console to access the actuator. Take it out to see if it's working (pull connector back in, turn key on and see if acturator turns when temp setting is changed). I also have a generic post on heater issues that may be worth your time to read (http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6235876-no_heat_fan_blowing_cold_air). Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Transmission Leak ONLY when A/C is on...Weird!


The air conditioning and tranny cooler lines both run into same condensor. Which is attached to the rear of the radiator. The condensor/heat exhanger will need to be replaced

Try this article. I have the same problem and I think it is the vacuum motor that controls the door for changing from hot/cold in the rear heater box (located inside behind the L rear wheel)

Front vents will not work


If they are stuck on defrost,then the problem is a little vaccum line that comes through the firewall as all the climate controls are vaccum controlled,so look for a small green or black plastic line unhooked.

No air flow through 4 top rear vents


Don't worry, it's designed that way. The owner's manual is pretty unclear about this. But the heated air only comes out the floor vents underneath the front seats and the "heat vents" at the forward and side of the rear A/C compartment near the floor. The cooled or vent air flows from the overhead vents.
