It won't hurt to check for a vacuum leak in the lines under the hood starting at the firewall. If you're able to diagnose the location, you may find it easy enough to repair yourself as the blender door is vacuum operated. If you can't see/find a leak, you've done yourself no harm and can still have the car serviced. All the best.

The air blows but it don't heat like it suppose to nor do it allows the defroster to work. it a 2000 gmc jimmy 4-wheel drive someone says it may be the heating core


Sounds like a vacuum activated switch. Your engine vacuum is used to open and close little doors in your vents. If a hose is loose or disconnected or the electronic controls that tell the switch to let vacuum thru is not working, no air will reach your defroster vent at the windshield. Does the switch that controls Vent, Heat (sends to the floor), AC and MAX AC do anything at all? If they do, you may have a specific switch problem. If you switch from Vent to MAX AC the sound of the air flow should be much louder. If the switch isnt changing where the air blows, it is leading you to the problem. Either the switch is bad or the supply of vacuum to the switch is not there whether it is a loose vacuum hose or a disconnected one. Happens often when aftermarket stereos are installed and the installer disconnects something either by accident or forgets to reconnect it.

1997 explorer max ac switches between front and defroster vents


Check the vacuum hose going to the heater control valve,it may have popped off. If that is on. check the vacuum hose going to your recirculation door under the right side of your dash. I hope this helps.

Vents don't open when I turn on max A/C


I had the same problem on my 2003 CV, took it to ford and found out it was the AC controller. The controller is the part you see on your dash, that allows you to switch between heat/ac etc.. Watch for the cost though, To have a new controller installed was approx $750

No heat - ac stays on blowing through defrost vents


If you have the heater directed to the windshield, the AC will turn on. Move the control away from defrost.
