Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
My grandparents gave me the car 2 years ago, I knew the a/c didnt work, if you turned it on air would blow out but never got cold, they had it checked several times by a mechanic with no results even after adding or changing freeon. The heater worked until 8 months ago, now when you turn the dials you can hear a very faint noise like it kicked on but nothing blows out of the vents.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US.

I have the same problem on my 2000 Taurus. I've been told by a Ford service technician that it is probably an intermittent problem where the blend door gets stuck in the 'heat' position. I have electronic A/C controls, and there is a diagnostic procedure I can do where it runs the blend door through its full range of motion, and which seems to get it unstuck. If the problem happens again (and as I said, mine is intermittent), you might try doing the same thing by turning the dial all the way from hot to cold and back again a few times, to see if it gets unstuck. Or you could try to repair/replace the blend door.

OK, a vacuum controlled blend door is the problem. Fig. Fig. 1: Plenum door vacuum motors
