Check the fluid, first and foremost, then look at the color and for burn marks on the dipstick. If there are burn marks that can indicate an overheating/cooling issue. If that is in fact the case you will want to deal with the quickly as to avoid issues.

Many people assume that if the transmission is still shifting okay there must not be a problem. That just isn't the case know days as on board computers do much of the shifting vs old school where it was based on pressure.

Other possibilities include the pump is going, bad, I think Torque Converter and possibily a solenoid.

SOURCE: 2005 Ford Freestar rear air electrical

The blend door is stuck or not receiving the control knob information to change the temperature.

Your car uses an electronic blend door actuator. you will need to locate this devise under the dash. You may have to remove the dash to get to it. You will want to make sure that there is power coming in to the new switch and going out to the Blend Door Actuator. If you do not have power to the switch then find out why and fix the broken wire, if you have power to the motor but it won't move then replace the Blend Door Actuator (BDA).

Make sure the black wire to the BDA is grounded. The do the following:
Test the orange wire going to the BDA and the Yellow wire from the BDA to the switch for postive power. This will tell you if the BDA is getting power in from the car and out to the switch. Then make sure you get a power reading from the Red with White strip and the Red with Lite Green strip, this will tell you that the switch is sending the power back to the BDA to control the temp. If power is coming in to the BDA and not going out to the switch then the BDA is bad. If power is going to and from the switch back to the BDA then that also says the BDA is bad. If the ground is broken that will cause the BDA not to respond.

SOURCE: changed caliper on 2005 ford freestar and now brakes are spongie.

When bleading the brakes have someone there watching to make sure the master cylinder never runs out of brake fluid or all of your time spent bleading them will be waisted.
