Heater only works on high

Generally when this happens - the problem is the blower motor resistor. Fairly easy to replace and usually isn't expensive.

Hope this is helpful :-)

2008 Ford Escape heater blower no longer runs in position 1. Works great in positions 2 thru 4.

It could be the blower resistor. While I'm not familiar with the 2008 Escape, most resistors are located near the blower motor under the dash on the passenger side. It'll have a plug with several wires, and usually 2 screws holding it in.

Sounds like the heater control valve/ blend door. The actuator may be stuck or broken. The actuator opens and closes to adjust for the heat setting in the car. You might be able to take a coathanger and manually open the door if you can get to the control arm. They are usually hard to get to and pretty expensive. It is located under the dash at the heater core box. Good luck.
