Air Conditioning problems.

Fan motors in cars fail commonly. They wear out the brushes and the motor stops or the fuse blows. The other issue with the mode selector may not have anything to do with the motor. The actuator on the mode selector can become stuck or broken and then the air delivery wont go to the right area. All these things should be visible under the dash or behind the glovebox.

suspect a control panel issue as this HVAC (heater, ventilation, Air conditioning ) system should be all electric... If you can pull the control panel out looking at the back of it will answer your question... are the cables or just wires..

Would a bad serpentine belt on my 2008 Mustang cause my heater to blow cold air sometimes

if the serpentine belt is original then have it changed as it is probably hard and not gripping properly
it is a reason that the ac compressor will not be at full efficiency , just like power steering not as good as it should be and alternator not charging properly
the inspection of the belt is in the grooved section and it shows minute cracks in the groove ribs then it is overdue for a change

I have a 2009 Chevrolet Traverse. The air is does not flow out of the defroster position. I hear the air blowing but it does not come out of the top of the dash board. When I switch the position on

from what I've read repair involves removing the dashboard.
there are 2 sets of temp regulators and 2 air flow directors.
both sides have their own.

I have a ford 1991 tempo,4 cylinder. There is a screeching coming from my car. When the screeching happends all the lights dim, and the air/heat blows out low, ones the screeching stop the lights go back...

The noise is most likely the drive belt. On that year and model, you have 3 different drive belts: one for the power steering, one for the alternator, and a serpentine belt for the rest of the accessories. Based upon your symptoms, the alternator belt would be suspect. But in this case, the alternator belt is a secondary belt powered off of the A/C pulley. So the culprit is most likely the serpentine belt. Cheapest solution is to replace the serpentine belt and see if that resolves the problem. If the problem persists, then the automatic belt tensioner for the serpentine belt is the next most likely culprit. This is a royal pain to replace and just the part can set you back in dollars. I've attached an exploded view of the right engine mount -- you will need to remove most of this in order to access the tensioner. Good luck with that!

I have a 2003 Ford Focus ZX5 and have had a great deal of work done in the last 3 weeks. I have new spark plugs, wires, gasket cover, oil change and the motor mounts replaced. After picking up my car...

It depends if the Serpentine Belt is worn or not, i.e. cracked, glazed, dryed out. If it is good and the belt is still squealing than it may be a bad Belt Tensioner, which is not keeping the belt properly tensioned. (Loose Belt) Replacing the Belt will not solve the problem of the car running hot. You will need to fix the Electric Fan that is not working, because if you keep on running the car hot all the time you may blow the Head gasket to your engine which will cost you about $800-1100 dollars to repair.
