    I foudn out it's the Evaporator core. I need to find instructions on how to do it myself because the Mechanic here said it's between 4-5 hundred to fix and I don't have that.

Turn on the engine and A/c on high. Check under the hood to see if the A/c compressor starts to turn. If not it is probably to low on freon. If it cycles on and off quickly (every 8 sconds or less) It's either low or the compressor is weak. Also do the following check on a cool morning. Warm the engine up, turn the air vent with no A/c and check if the air comes out cool or hot. If it seems to warm or hot your heater valve might be stuck openEither way, look for an A/c shop that will look at it for free (there are many around). .

Ac Blows Hot air.

Check to see if the compressor is coming on by turning on the AC while in park and listening for it. You should also see the RPMs drop a bit when it comes on.

If it is coming on then you just need to recharge the refrigerant. You can pick up a recharge kit from your local auto parts store. It'll cost you about 40-50 bucks. It should come with detailed instructions on how to recharge it, but basically you need to find the low pressure port, hook up the refrigerant bottle and charge it while the AC is running.

Let me know if you have any trouble.

I have a 1995 Lincoln Town Car that has hot air blowing through the a/c vents. I've been looking online and everyone says that it is probably the blend door motor actuator. Is that correct? And how...

If you can get air out of the defrost, vents, and floor, the blend door actuator is working fine. The most common cause for hot air coming through the vents with the AC on is the system is most likely low on refrigerant. There are leak detector kits available at most auto parts stores. Any service station certified in AC service will require you to repair all leaks prior to recharging your system. A do-it-yourselfer can "top off" the system with refrigerant (also available as a kit through your local auto parts retailer). Most AC compressors require a minimum of 2lbs of refrigerant to engage. I'd certainly take the car to a service station that's certified in AC repair instead of going to a Lincoln dealer. Prices vary according to many factors ie where you live, the extent of the leak etc. It's money well spent to have a professional do the work since they're able to properly evacuate the system prior to recharging.

This might sound stupid but do you have the temperature control on hot? Sounds like your ac may need to be recharged.

My 1996 Lincoln Town car heater works but you cannot control the temperature and the air conditioner blows out hot air when turned on.What could be the cause of this problem?

To fix the AC unit which blows hot air all the time. Seems like you have a small leak in the system or the AC compressor has gone out. Suggest you try recharging the unit. Make sure you have the correct R-22 or 134A freeon. If this work for a few days then have the leak fixed, if this doesn't work replace the compressor. Check Ebay for the compressor i obtained one for $100.00. Cost $450 at Auto Zone.
