No heat, but plenty of air 1996 explorer

There is plenty of air out the vents, but no heat. the motor that selects between hot and cold behind the glove box works, thermostat is fine, has a new radiator cap, and the plastic deal under the hood that has a vacuum line on it and the 4 hoses running to it is brand new. vacuum line to it works fine. could it be the heater core?

    I checked the hoses. both are hot. could it be the plastic selector door behind the jockey box? my father suggests the thermostat. but the temp guage is steady and in the middle, so i wasn't thinking it would be the stat.

Feel the hoses when engine is hot to see if the water is circulating,before you do anything else.If one is hot and the other cool then its not circulating,and heater core need a good flushing with some some caustic soda

Heat comes thru driver's side vents, but blows cold air thru passenger side vents


You likely have a faulty blend door. It could be electrically, mechanically related, or even a broken door. It may be the blend door motor, or possibly the temp sensor.

OK, a vacuum controlled blend door is the problem.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


See Figure 1

Fig. Fig. 1: Plenum door vacuum motors

  1. Disconnect the vacuum hose at the motor.
  2. Remove the 2 motor attaching screws.
  3. Rotate the assembly so that the slot in the bracket is parallel to the tee-shaped end of the door crank arm, and pull the motor and bracket off the crank arm.
  4. Installation is the reverse of removal.
--- Search for other vacuum motors under the dash to see if the vacuum hoses have somehow deteriorated or become detached. --- Try to look up your vehicle on autozone.com for other vacuum motors under the 'heater' section of the 'chassis electrical' section of the 'repair guide' after selecting your 1996 Ford f250 crew cab vehicle. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?pageId=0996b43f8038ebd8

2003 Ford Explorer XLT Air Conditioning vents blow hot and cold


It sounds like the control motor switching from hot to cold is stuck halfway in between the two temp settings. You will have to take it down and replace it, it is mounted under dash passenger side near the blower motor.

No HEAT 96 Ford Explorer


i would guess your heater blend door is sticking. It is a rectangular door that moves back & forth to allow either cold air or hot air or a mix out of your vents. This is not an easy fix. But first be sure you heater hoses have hot water flowing in and out of the heater core. Under the hood you should find 2 hoses going into your firewall on the passenger side.

Temperature Control not working on 1999 Ford Explorer


Sounds like your temperature actuator is not moving or your temp door is broken. On max a-c ,coolant is shut off to your heater core allowing only cold air in.
