Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
I have a 1998 Ford Taurus. The AC has always worked extremely well. About two years ago, I started having a problem with it not switching over from heat to ac. My husband was able to flip a vent under the dash to manually switch it from heat to ac in the summer and back to heat in the winter. This year it didn't work. He's checked all the fuses and relays and everything appears to be working correctly. But, the ac compressor won't come on and when you move the switch to ac on th e dash, only heat comes out. Is the problem with the actuator? a valve? a switch? Any advise would be immensely appreciated.
I guess first thing to find out is why compressor is not coming on, as without that running you won't get any cool air. May just need a recharge, but I would have that checked out first. If system is low on freon, it won't engage, and if it is low, why, as in where is leak & how much to fix it, would be my first concern.
