Question about 1998 Ford Expedition
Have you tried to recharge it with some r-134. It could be so many things things if it won't take the charge. Does your compressor turn on? I just flipped a coin (heads) so it's definitely the orifice tube.

sounds like the air-conditioning expansion valve is probably not working correctly here is a way you can fix your air conditioning:

Sounds like the hig head-pressure cut=out is kicking in and shutting down the compressor. This is probably caused by not enough air being moved across the condensor coil (in front of the radiator). Check and make sure all the engine cooling fan components are in place and functional (fan clutch, shrouding, belts tight) and also check the coil for obstructions (Bug accumulation, road debris, litter). Clean the coil and radiator as much as possible at a self-service car wash, see if that doesn't help.
This can also be caused by an overcharged system (too much Freon). Sometimes when these symptoms first appear, the knee-**** response is to add another can of Freon, only to make things worse. If this is the case, I would recommend a system evacuation and service, replacing the dryer/receiver and pulling a 28mm/hg vacuum on the system, and then refilling with the proper amount of Freon, and cleaning the evaporator coils as well. This can only legally be one by an HVAC Certified technician, to insure excess Freon is not released into the atmosphere.
Hope this helps you figure it out, and good luck!

Taurus does not use a heater control valve. It runs coolant thru the heater core constantly. You may have a temp blend door actuator problem or a plugged up heater core is also very common. Feel the heater hoses, they should both be very hot, it one is much cooler; you can try to back flush the core.

I know from experience that if the coolant is to low ( not just the freon levels in the compresor but the antifreeze/coolant level as well) the AC system will not cool and will blow hot. Check the coolant Antifreeze and freon levels, even with the Coolant being a little low my 1998 Ford E150 Van will blow hot. After you have ruled out of these possibilities and the chance it is the thermostat most likely the problem is what Ford calls the "Flap" it controls the air flow through the vent system when you switch from Heat to AC. When the Flap is working it closes off one systems air flow so as to not interfere with the current climate selection.
