Question about 2004 Lincoln LS
MY 04 Lincoln LS is blowing hot air from the AC, the dealer ship sold me a lemon warranty(i was told it covers everything but covers nothing ), vehicle has only 55,555 miles - I was told it I need a "DEC heater control valve"costs over $600 from dealership. How do I i locate the valve on the car and how much should this really cost ? Thank you in advance !!
First- only my personal opinion,although I just read an article about all types of product insurance & warrantees.
You really don't need any type of warrantee, on any product
If it is new,it should be good for a while
It it is used,you already got a discount,don't give some of that back.
Not to be hurtful,but a car dealer, is not in the vehicle business. They are in marketing and sales. The vehicles are the financial instuments they peddle.
If you really read your warrantee and asked the correct questions,they would politely escort you out the door. I"ve been there.
I own the same 2004LS V8 and have all the service manuals
You would need to know the correct name of the part and a call to the dealer parts dept, they would get you the price. I could do that for you,if I knew what was really happening with the vehicle. $600..00 is a lot, but that's what they charge.
What I see is called-Dual Coolant Control Valve
It is fastened to the pass side of the radiator/fan shroud with one screw.
It has two heater hoses and one electrical connector going to it.
You will see it under the A/C drier.
Not a fun job,but you could replace yourself.
