Question about 1983 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

Heat is not blowing hard

Well at the beginning of January i installed my cd player. And ever since i put it in, my heater is not blowing hard through the vents. I'm not sure if it is clogged of shoving it in there, because there were previous wires from the tape player and speakers. The defrost and floor is blowing when I turn it on just the vents(heat) side. It's very cold outside at least 20 or lower outside and wonder if you have any ideas and please email me ASAP. Thanx.

Sounds like you have a vcuum leak. recheck the wires to make sure you didn't cut or pull out a vauum hose.

I have a heater that blows warm air on top but not at feet and blows only cold air in back heater


THATS DEFINATLY AN EITHER DISCONNECTED VENT LINE OR STUCK VENT. THE ONLY ADVICE FROM HERE IS TO TRACE THE VENTS & FIND THE HOT SPOT (OPEN HOSE OR JAMBED VENT) THERE'S ALSO A HEATER CONTRL VALVE WHICH IS A POPULAR ONE FOR THAT COMPLAINT. NOT SURE ABOUT SPECS ON GM

2002 mountaineer heater works, but won't blow out of the top vents that. The bottom vents work fine.


Unfortunately you are going to have to remove the dash to fix this problem. What has happened can be one of two things. The first is the ductwork has become unattached leading to the top vents. The second possibility is a damper is not working. With the engine off and the switch on, put the selector to defrost while listening closely. You should hear dampers opening and closing. If you don't, that may be the problem. They are either electrically controlled or operate off of vacuum. Hope this helps

2007 merc grand marquis heater air comes out all of the vents and very little out of the defrost vents


Check to make sure the engine vacuum is getting to the heater/ac control. Bad vacuum hose or leak. Many vehicles use engine vacuum to move heater doors and controls. When the vacuum is absent, it usually defaults to air blowing out the AC vents.

Blowing hot air


The heater valve on these cars are hard to access. If you are trying to get rid of the heat, a quick solution is putting a valve on the heater hose from the outside. Cut the hose and install a valve in which you can regulate the amout of hot coolant going into the heater core. Since its summer you might as well shut the valve once installed. Winter time comes just open them up again.

Heater blows cold air from top vents after running for 1.3 hours


Sounds like you may be able to fix it by flushing your antifreeze and back flushing the heater core. Some car owners cheep out and put stop leak into the antifreeze, others dont change there antifreeze at all. Both are mistakes.
