There is a diversion valve that closes off the heater core. If there is an air pocket or if pressure bypasses that could cause the thump. And allow the heater core to warm up and in turn cause the ac not to blow as cold. It is like having the heat and the ac on at the same time. To fix this make sure cooling system is free of air, and check the diversion valve to ensure proper working.

Ford explorer 2000 stalls in the cold every morning. what is the problems


Your cold start circuit is not working. This is usually controlled by a water sensor to turn it on. This part will enrich the fuel and step up the idle until the engine is warmer. It coordinates engine settings with the TPS.

Go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. It may pick up this error. If not, ask about this sensor. It can be separate from the engine heat thermometer.

02 explorer.no heat,makes thumping noise when temp turned to heat


  The concern lies in the temperature blend door. Most likely if it is clicking the door is broken where the motor shaft (the motor that actuates the door) goes into the door. Replace both the door and motor ( unfortunately from Ford the whole heater box needs to be replaced) or an aftermarket such as Dorman may have the door separate.  The entire dash needs to be removed for the repair so it is quite costly.
