Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
Posted by Anonymous on
Fixed one of these recently--it was a "T" in the vacuum line from the engine near the control switch. The "T" branches to a separate switch on the panel. I cut out the old "T" and spliced in a new one.
Your leak may be elsewhere. Typically, it's where the vacuum line connects to the engine intake manifold, where a hase is used to make the connection there. The other typical failure is the control switch itself. You can access the back of the control panel by taking out 4 screws and pulling it forward. Pull the vacuum connector off the switch and start the engine. The black line coming into the connector should have the engine vacuum on it. If no vacuum, check that "T" and the connection to the engine. If you have vacuum to the switch, the switch is probably bad. You can verify by putting the connector back on and listening for a leak in the switch. If I'm not making sense or you're not familiar with vacuum controlled HVAC, please reply with any questions.
