Thomas and Michael are correct, I would replace the blend door actuator. It is a VERY labor intensive job however. Since you have heat entering the truck it rules out the heater core and the heater control valve (passenger side under hood). The blend door directs the heat where you want it to go. There is an actuator attached to the door which moves the door back and forth to direct the airflow where you select on the dash. The actuator is not expensive (about $20.00-$30.00 depending on where you live and which store has them). However, getting to it is a PIA. It is under the passenger side dash inside the plentum chamber, which links like a big black rectangle box. The heater core, blend door and actuator are all inside.

You either need to (here comes the PIA, labor intensive part) remove a lot of the dash components to get to it, or if you do not care about "correct way or broken dash pieces", hack into the box, dig it out, fix it and duct tape some stuff back on. There are a bunch of how-to\'s on the net on both methods. It just depends on if you want quick destructive heat and don\'t care what your truck looks like when you are done, or want it fixed right.

Personally, I always check all HVAC functions on my trucks, wife\'s car and 3 kid\'s cars in September so I have time when it is weather tolerable to fix anything correctly before the Minnesota winter is apron us. Same goes for A/C. I check them in April.

Lost of heating after 40 minutes of driving.


You have a dual range HVAC system. It has two blend doors in the HVAC box, and only the blend door for the driver's side is working properly. You will have to troubleshoot, and possibly replace the blend door actuator for the passenger side.

I have a 1998 eddie bauer expedition and i cant get any heat to come out of my vents...i have installed a new heater core and a new thermostat and there is coolant in there and the blend door has been...


OK, if the heater core is getting hot, and you put a new thermostat in, then it seems to me that the blend door is not at the right angle in order to allow heat to blowout of the vents.

How was the blend door checked, I would ask?

'99 eddie bauer, cold air in the rear hot air in


you may just be low on freon. The rear will often work ok when low, but the front won't

The same compressor serves both front and rear systems. Check that first.

ALso, check to see if your front blend door rotates when you raise & lower the temperature.
