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: heater is blowing but its cold air not hot air 2000 expedition

Make sure the heater core is in the open position by using the shut off valve and turning it to open. next, you may have a malfunction in the direction door the directs the air flow in the dash. a lever may have become lose or separated. may be a bad servo motor not directing the door to move to the heater position. i would start by checking that shut off valve first on the heater core.

SOURCE: 2006 Ford Crown Victoria HVAC only blows thru windshield defrost

You have a vacuum leak. Defrost is the default postion(no Vacuum). Start by finding the small black vacuum line near the heater hoses at the fire wall under the hood.Trace it back, it should go to a square black reservoir . Not totally sure exactly where it is located on this model,shop manual doesn't show a very good pic, but it states to remove wiper arm and pivot shaft to remove it. You will see a second line going from here to intake manifold vacuum port. Make sure you don't have a leak there somewhere.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Ford Expedition. The Air

you have a vacuum loss to the ac control head, the motors that divert air are vacuum operated, if you loose vacuum the system goes to defrost for safety reasons, the vacuum comes from the engine, then goes o a plastic vacuum tank under the hook start there, it is a 3/16 id hose.

I have 99 bonneville the climate control is just 3 dashes and air is blowing from the defrost vents by windshield. I can not change any settings or turn off.


Could be the control module or the control on the dash.
The default action is to blow on the windshield to keep it clear.

A/C will only blow through defrost vents


Common question on this site. On late model cars, the vents are controlled by blend door motors. Small electric motors open and close doors to direct air flow.
Chances are you have a blend door that is stuck or a failed motor.
The default position is the defrost to make sure the windshield is always clear.
Someone will need to look behind the dash to see if all of the doors will move on demand.

Hot air blows when system turned to heat, when control is moved to Defraost or combination heat/defrost air temp cools down, what could cause this?


Make sure you have the heat selection set all the way to heat. In Ford and Dodge vehicles, when you select Defrost the AC compressor actually kicks in and if you have the temperature selection set to the cool side it will push cold air to defrost your windshield.

Bought son 98 Taurus, blasts cold a/c air and defroster air blows, but it won't blow warm air-no heater. can't see out of windshield with the morning sun.Husband flushed antifreeze and changed thermostat....


feel the two hoses going into and out of the heater core. they both should be hot. if one is cold the heater core is likely plugged. you can try flushing it out to see if you can restore flow to the heater core. if they are both hot the thermostat may be sticking open tho you should have a limited amount of heat. also confirm that the vents are operating as they should be.

Can't change air flow direction on ac/heater control. Only blows up to windshield.


It will be a cable that will be disconnected. or broken. Youll have to take some of the dash apart to see the cable and follow it to the switch. Dont be affraid to take some things apart and when you cant see, use a mirror to help you see behind the dash. work the control and watch the action. You will fix this dont get frustrated. good luck
