Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

Open Question

2001 ford taurus heater, a/c, vent isnt blowing any air.

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.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Taurus blowing hot air from the vents

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.

SOURCE: my 2002 ford explorer wont blow any air out of the vents...

It sounds like blower motor has failed. Motor is located behind glove box on lower part of heater box.

OK, a vacuum controlled blend door is the problem.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


See Figure 1



0996b43f8020d980.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

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

2001 Ford Taurus No Heat I am having trouble with


possibly the bled door is stuck open so only the cold air from a/c works when on defrost vs closing to allow heat to cycle through the system as defrost runs through the a/c system

Hi Ron,

Blend air door actuators fail often in Ford Taurus. It sounds like that may be the problem with yours. For more information regarding this subject, please read the following article:

I just bought a 2001 Ford taurus. The heater works, but will only blow air through the defroster and floor outlets. It will not blow air through the vents on the dash panel.


it sounds like it could be a problem with the vacuum motor it could also be a vacuum line or the switch. I would check the vacuum motor first when you check the vacuum motor you should also be able to see if there is vacuum in the line. if there is no vacuum in the line I would check the switch next.

1999 Ford Taurus, no heat. Air comes thru all vents but blows cold air like the ac is on. Replaced thermostat twice, flushed heater core three times (just did it), still ice cold air. Both pipes going into...


ford you say


check that there is flow coming out your heater hoses
step 1 remove 1c heater hose
step 2 have a friend start car remember it is easy to install a heater flush valve and it makes the job easier
if there is flow then eithor you have a blockage or an air lock
if there is no flow there might be a valve in the heater lines to stop the flow of coolant to the car when ac is on i have seen theise in a few cars but they are rare if there is a valve than make sure it isnt frozen with rust and ir does work in a ford i would assume that it is a vacume valve

good luck and happy hunting
