1998 FORD EXPEDITION AC/HEATER BLOWER

I had work done on my car years ago to replace the heater core on my vehicle and ever since then, the air barely blows through my vents. i can hear it and it works on all levels but i'm thinking that it is blowing out and behind the console. The heat works and the ac gets cool...but it takes a long time because it doesn't come through the vents well. Is this something that anyone has come across?

This problem is caused my the blend door actuator motor, the electric motor turns to allow the flap to open either to cool or heat and then through the vents. The problem has been either the motor is going bad or the actual motor stops working. There are small plastic gears that strip in the motor causing this. I have replaced several in the rear unit. The front one is under the dash next to the heater core. The dashboard must be removed. It is a big job.
Please rate me and let me know if this helped.

Ten months ago the local Ford dealer replaced the heater core and temp blend door on my '98 Expedition. The heater core failed again and I was told that due to oxidation I will basically continue to have...


There may be a corrosive in the system. Flushing the system should be done at least every 2 years. Your vehicle is now 12 years old, but I have not seen a heater core go bad in 10 months, it may have been defective, and should have some type of warranty.

Can not find heater control valve 2000 expedition


what year? for 2000, there are no control valves. It mixes a/c air with heater core air to blend the right temp.

SECTION 412-02: Heating and Ventilation 2000 Expedition/Navigator Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Heating/Defrosting The heating and defrosting system has the following features:
  • Controls the temperature and, during A/C operation, reduces the relative humidity of the air inside the vehicle.
  • Delivers heated or cooled air to maintain the vehicle interior temperature and comfort level.
  • Controls the A/C blower motor speed.
  • Cooling or heating can be adjusted to maintain the desired temperature.
  • Uses a reheat method to provide conditioned air to the passenger compartment.
  • The blower motor draws outside air through the A/C recirculating air duct, except for MAX A/C cooling, when recirculated air is used.
  • All airflow from the blower motor passes through the A/C evaporator core.
  • The temperature is then regulated by reheating a portion of the air and blending it with the remaining cool air to the desired temperature.
  • The temperature blending is controlled by the temperature blend door, which regulates the amount of air that flows through and around the heater core, where it is then mixed and distributed.

1988 Ford Exppedition heater in the front will not work


I ASSUME THIS IS A 98, THIS PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY A PART CALLED AN "AIR TEMPERATURE CONTROL BLEND DOOR ACTUATOR MOTOR" THIS MOVES A DOOR BETWEEN THE COLD AIR FROM THE AC AND THE HOT AIR FROM THE HEATER CORE, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THAT ACTUATOR. .

Ac and heater not working. New Heater core and


You need to but a scanner on the computer and activate the AC. If it does not activate you may have a bad PCM. Also if the pressure in the AC is low it will not run. Also you have a AC relay in the engine fuse box.

Now for the bummer part. I have this same truck. Replaced heater core and I didnt get the blend door quite on track and it jammed. I had to take the dash off again. Also your center heat control may be bad.

I don't think these two problems are related. Even without AC your heat should work. Do you have rear climate control also. See if that works. If it does you may have a jammed door for the dash area

Have a 2000 ford expedition and the ac in the front blows hot but the rear ac works fine. what could it be


Listen and see if the vent flap is moving from the hot position, to the cold position. If that's working then the evaporator may be clogged. It sits inside the same box that the heater core is inside of and if it becomes clogged with hair or dust, then it wont allow the blower to blow through it. But it would then bring hot air through the vents because the heater core is there too.

1998 FORD EXPEDITION AC/HEATER BLOWER


Common issue. Your air ducts were not reassembled properly and so the blower fan is working but the air is going out wherever the air duct is improperly fitted. Also the fan gate ( a metal gate that is used to block off any heat entering the system when you have the a/c on may be stuck in the close position. Whatever the case it can be repaired by getting in the sysem under the passenger side of the underside of the dash. You may want a professional mechanic to perform thid because it is a bit of a job to access all of the items needed. Hope this helps!!!

Heater /ac


i had this exact same problem with my 98 explorer. your blend actuator (blend doors) are not morking. these are on the passenger side under the dash. getting to them will be dificult, but it can be done. you will need to take apart the heater box, to fix them. (the big black box under the dash).
