My 1998 4.0L Ford Explorer only blows hot air. The vaccum line is broken just above the heater water control valve. Not sure where it connects . I believe I need the diagram to show how it connects.


mmm i had the same problem with my 1998 4.0L Ford Explorer probably a leaking condenser, sounds like you have a problem with your AC system, i suggest taking it to a ford servicing centre.

My heater only blows cold air-'98 ford explorer


Hi Bri,

That is usually the first symptom of low coolant. Not enough water in the system to circulate through the heater core. Has it been running hot?

Check the coolant level in the radiator

Best regards,
Mike

1998 Ford Explorer 4.0 Engine runs from warm to hot but only when A/C, which happens to blow cold is on. Changed fan clutch but still the same problem. Engine temp goes back to normal when A/C is off.


Check your R coolant level. Also if there was ever anti leak or lubricant added this may put an extra load on compressor. If the system has appropriate coolant level and is not loaded with fluids then your compressor may be wearing out.

1998 Ford Explorer will not start when hot


Sounds like the choke is getting stuck. It's an electric choke. So, clean it and its linkages. Also, check the vacuum for leaks. With 123K, I'd start with a cleaning.

Most head gaskets don't get in the oil, just leak into the combustion chamber, your friend is probably right, have another shop confirm his diagnosis
