Question about 2006 Ford Ranger
May possibly be a vacuum leak... look underneath to make sure all the vacuum hoses for the vents are intact. there is a small resevoir (usually mounted on the firewall near the brake booster) it looks like a film cannister or similiar. that may have failed. you should be able to similate that same action by flooring it on a level road. you will hear the vents change as it loses vacuum.

It should also be said that Rangers will kick the AC and heat to the defroster to gain power if it is under a heavy load. The vacuum lines eat up power, and if you hit the gas it may or may not push the air to the defroster to save power. If you have the 3.0 or 4.0, it shouldnt happen. If you have a 2.5 or smaller, they do it quite often.
