Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

My 98 explorer has no heat. It seems no matter where i set the temp control I am only getting cold air flow. I do not suspect the thermostst as the engine temp is always in the normal range. The haynes manual refers to a door that opens and closes depending on the position position of the temp selctor knob. Where is this door located and is it controled electrictly or by vacuum. the temp control only has wires on the back but I have no diagram to see how it controls the temperature.

Why is my AC compressor running when my temperature control is set to heat, fan control set to 2, AC control switch off and air flow control set for floor?


If you have an automatic climate system where you can set temp the the compressor will run at some of the middle settings. The system blends cold and warm air to obtain the desired temp setting. If it does not have automatic control you have another issue.

There is a problem with my heater i am not getting no vacum has new water pump and new thermostat in it and all and everything else is working except the the heat all it does it blows cold air please


Have you checked for any air locked in system?If any air is trapped in system you will not get heat through.Bleed it or open rad cap when is cold and put a container under neath to catch over flow.Start car, turn on heater fan to full,and set temp. to Maximum.After car warms up watch for bubbles coming out from the radiator cap opening.

My 2001 ford explorer with auto temp controls is only blowing cold air when the heater is on and temp set at 90. There is plenty of water in the system so i am not sure what it could be other than the...


1suspect thermostat either primary for engine or secondary for heating system if fitted.
2 suspect that heat valve maybe jammed in the closed position so the mechanism can not open the flow to the cockpit.
3 suspect air in the system ensure the sytem is fully bled so the water can flow freely.

I can`t change the temp on the climate control on my 98 Explorer.No matter where you set the temp control it is always on full heat.Where is the problem,under the hood or in the dash? Thanks


check the knob, they are known to crack. and when they do, you are just turning the knob, not the shaft. if the knob is good, the blend door actuator may be bad/stuck

98 xplorer cold a/c but when you start moving you feel it start changing to hot air


I had the same problem with my 98 ranger. the problem is the hot cold air blender door. on my truck the the top of the door where the electric actuater is placed broke and no matter what you selected on the controlls you would get hot air. to verify that it is not the A/C place it in the Max A?C position. this will cut off hot coolant to the heater core and you should after a few minutes get cold air. if that works you can find the actuator locaed behond the glove box door on top of theplastic duct next to the blower motor. the only way to fix the problem would be to replace the unit or do what I did I glued the actuater spindle to the blender door. make sure the actuater is in the same position as the door or it wont work.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7


Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.

1999 jeep wrangler 4.0 liter sport heater problem #2


Make 100% sure before you go and spend more $$$ that (1) you have good coolant flow through the heater core; get engine to operating temp,then with heater fan on high and temp control on full hot carefully grasp heater in and out hoses(i use a in-fared heat gun to diagnose). They should be very close to same temp, if not, core is plugged or if equipped with a flow control valve, its not opening or there is an air lock in system.(2) If coolant flow is good, suspect the hot/cold blend door being stuck in cold position assuming you have good air flow. Its very rare for engine cooling to be ok and heater core coolant flow be bad , caused by a failed water pump! Hope this helps! Please rate me,Thanks!

I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500. The air conditioner blows just warm air. The system was working when engine was shut off but did not work properly upon restart today. The AC/Max A/C switch seems to work...


If the compressor is outputting cold freon maybe the vent in the dash is not opening to allow the air to flow thru the condenser. Try operating the heat/cool switch and the recirculting air control in an effort to get it to open the damper.
