SOURCE: my 91 ford explores air conditioner blows hot air

Sounds like the vac valve is bad to the A/C controller. It should be located in the vac line from the intake before it goes thru the firewall to the controller.

Car over heats up hills and long trips fine around town recently head done & thermostate no sign of water leak have only seen 1 of 2 radiator fans working


check which of the fans is running it could be the one for the airconditioning thats turning and that would explain why it over heats around town because there is no cold air to cool it and there is when you are driving on long trips
