Check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry5vyIMc6T0 - should be the same as your truck. You can buy them online from just about any parts supplier (it's called the mode actuator).

SOURCE: There's warm air blowing out of the driver-side

Most of the time the dash has to come out to access the actuators on the heater box.

If you've replaced the actuators and they are working.
One of the blend doors may be broken inside the heater box. To repair or replace the broken door you
have to remove the heater box. This is not a small job. The book gives 6-7 hours for the job. There is a
cheat that I've heard good things about. I guess it can
be done in a fraction of the time. You can find out
about it at heatertreater.net I have not used it myself
but I know somone who has. And it worked well for
him. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: driver siide blows hot and passenger and rear

Had same problem on my 04 Suburban. Dealer's service dept said the passenger side temp sensor was defective causing the driver side actuator to continuously search. They replace the sensor about 2 months ago and A/C has been working fine ever since. Repair bill was $400+.

SOURCE: The driver side only blows

Yes it is most likely a vacuum actuator there are more then one . They open and close little doors in the ducts to deriect air flow inside the ducts . They are not easy to get at in most cases however you should look at all vacuum lines going to and near the unit its controlled by engine vacuum . exhust all other opptions first before takeing the dash out . The problem could also be electrical check the control switches make sure the switch is not bad on one side . Spend some time looking and thinking before you start riping things apart. Good luck with it

By the time you hear noise from the engine it will be too late for that engine. You may need an oil pump replacement. Have a mechanic check the oil pressure. It's cheaper than replacing the engine.

4/04 ford f150 4x4 front axle actuator won' t stay disengaged


Even though you checked the vacuum lines and found no leaks it does not mean there isn't a problem. The check valve in the line closest to the firewall actuator is probably your problem. Had the same issue replaced this line and solved it. The check valves in the vacuum lines are your best next guess.

Blower temps


You have a bad temperature control actuator on the driver side. Before you change it make sure that it has not lost its memory . You can reset the system by diconnecting the battery for 10 minutes hook it back up and then start the truck. Turn the system on and let it go thru its reset it will do it all by its self do not touch any of the controls for about 5-6 minutes if it still acts up replace the actuator . Remember to do the reset after you put the new one in.
