Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
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.
Not the stat ,its either the heater matrix is partaly blocked or if it has a shut of f valve?? this ia an american model and iam in spain ,never seen one ,and the shut off valve/tap isnt working but i ahavent seen a valve in years,normally a flap opens alowing the air through over the matrix core .look for thin plastic pipe under the dash thats connected to a round valve with a lever attached.Ifyou are getting some heat then the heater unit might need flushing with a hose,seal the heater pipes off with a couple of pairs of mole grips and give it a good flushing before you do anything else.do the heater hoses feel soft ??or crunchy when squeezed.dont forget the antifreeze .right can i go out now to see the girlfriend ,but dont tell the wife as shes gone to bingo
