Question about 1995 Ford F150 Styleside Regular Cab
It seems that the heater/ac blower motor or dash switch doesn't work any longer. Before, it did, then when you would turn it ''on'' to a position, it failed to blow or blew very fast or just on low, no matter what position the dash switch was on. I've replaced the blower ''resistor'' (a series of small coils'', but still no heat is blown. When I put the other switch on heat -floor/mix/defrost, the air conditioning compressor comes on and makes one HELL'va growling sound, then quits or gets quiet.
Now, even though I live in the South, the temperatures do get cold and will ice up the windshield. Being disabled, when I go somewhere, I'd like the truck to be at least warm as my joints ache badly. FORD's website is absolutely no help and I can't pay $85. per hour for someone to fix this. Any idea's? Help!
Could be your thermostat, thats quick and easy and cheap. could also be your water pump, not easy or cheap. could also be your heater core, also not easy or cheap. but i would start with the thermostat, chould cost you less than $10 for the part, and maybe an hour or two to do it yourself. if that doesn't help i would probably do a radiator flush, preferably a pressurized to get all the gunk our of it, and you'll probably have to go to a shop for that and cost you around $100, and they will tell you what the problem is, whether its your pump, your core, or you could even have a cracked radiator. and if thats the case, after you have it flushed get some of that radiator seal stuff, you just put it in your cool radiator(not the resevoir) and the the engine run for an hour or so. not a permanant fix, but this could all get you a little extra warmth.
