Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
I have a 96 ford taurus. The front defroster stopped working recently. The heat does work and blows through the panel vents, just nothing comes out of the defroster and it's getting cold that my front window fogs up and I can't heat it. Please help
Their is a vacuum actuated valve that redirects the flow of air from the panel to the defrost vents when the defrost is selected. I would check the vacuum line running to the valve while the vehicle is running with the defroster on and check whether or not the line is pulling a vacuum to actuate the valve, if not you obviously have a bad line or vacuum line fitting. If you have suction on the vacuum you will need to check the valve and see that is functioning properly. The valve is usually located under the dash on the passengers side. If you are mechanically inclined i would go to a local auto part store and pick up a repair manual for your car for about $20 as they contain diagrams and info that will save you alot of money.
