Question about 2000 Ford Escort

1 Answer

I have a 2000 ford escort. The airconditioner stopped blowing cold air. At first it would work for a while and then stop. Then heat came out of the vents. Now the aircondition doesn't work a all. Could it be a fuse?

Only diagnose the system if you know what your doing and don't mind working with VERY dangerous compressed liquids and gasses. The first thing i'd check is the pressure on the low side of the system. You can get a refridgerant check gauge at most auto parts stores. It should only fit on the low pressure side nozzle. Gauges will give you example normal pressure levels. If you get a gauge/canister of r134a, they also include instructions for adding if needed.
The A/C and the power steering are two sperate systems, however they are driven by the same belt, and it makes sence if the belt snaped and flew of the pulleys if would make noise on its way out, and with out a belt powering the a/c compressor and the power steering pump, you lose both. So first thing I'd do is check that belt, either its broken or maybe the tensioner gave out and it's slipping, either's gotta be the belt thats the only way those two systems could fail at the same time, that belt is the only thing they share.-, Ford Mechanic
It is possible that when freeze plug blew vehicle overheated and caused high pressure in the a/c system resulting in loss of refrigerant charge .
Please do rate the solution. Thank you for using fixya.keep updated. thanks.

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

Heat does not work. only cold air blows out. 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 5-speed

either engine temp not up to normal (bad thermostat) or you have air trapped in cooling system. go to a shop with evac/fill equipment and they will **** out the air.

under the passenger side below the glove box check the relay switch.. sometimes they corrode which will keep it from working.

A.S.A.P. 2000 ford escort zx2- heater not working

i cannot tell you exactly where it is but I do know there are flaps that move as you turn the heat knob. it mixes hot and cold air to get the determined temp. if the door is stuck in the cold position though you will get no heat. all I can tell you is it will be in the middle to passenger side and you should see some sort of linkage hooking to it. note there is a direction/panel defrost etc. flap
there is a fresh air recirculate flap.
there is ahot cold flap. so what I am trying to say is if you dont get it on the first one keep trying. it could have electric actuators that move these flaps so dont necessarily look for metal rods or cables.generally you can tell if when you turn your knobs and they are very easy it is electric. but if you feel some resistance it will have cables/rods going to them. just start digging under that dash.

Airconditioner suddenly stopped blowing cold air while I was driving--blows warm air now

you can get a recharge kit at Auto Zone, the car has to be runnung to fill it. . This is the first thing I would do, to see if it's out of freeon first.

Ask the Auto zone man to come out side and help you refill it. They will help if you ask.
