2001 Ford Taurus blowing hot air from the vents

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus with about 140,000 km. The problem that appeared yesterday was that it was a warmer day and when I turned the fan on for some cooler air, all I would get was hot air, even with the temperature dial turned to cold, and even when I turned the other dial to A/C and Max A/C. It was working fine a couple of days ago.

Any ideas?

    Thanks for the advice shanat but the problem seemed to fix itself after a couple of days. I will keep this in mind though, if it happens again.

    I have 2001 Taurus with 147,000 miles on it. A week ago the A/C was serviced it was about 85 degrees. Four days later it was about 117 degrees and I turned the A/C on it only blew hot air.

    I "thought" I had the same problem. The warm air is the standing air that is in the ventilation system being warmed by it's surroundings. The cool air simply pushing out the warm air first.

I have the same problem on my 2000 Taurus. I've been told by a Ford service technician that it is probably an intermittent problem where the blend door gets stuck in the 'heat' position. I have electronic A/C controls, and there is a diagnostic procedure I can do where it runs the blend door through its full range of motion, and which seems to get it unstuck. If the problem happens again (and as I said, mine is intermittent), you might try doing the same thing by turning the dial all the way from hot to cold and back again a few times, to see if it gets unstuck. Or you could try to repair/replace the blend door.

  • keith smith Jul 06, 2013

    yes it would and shanes tip worked

  • keith smith Jul 06, 2013

    i left my battery cable off for an hour just for kicks, seems like from what ive read on various sites , if you have an automatic temp system, it auto calibrtaes from time to time and the door might become warped,stuck,etc.

Hi Ron,

Blend air door actuators fail often in Ford Taurus. It sounds like that may be the problem with yours. For more information regarding this subject, please read the following article:

I just bought a 2001 Ford taurus. The heater works, but will only blow air through the defroster and floor outlets. It will not blow air through the vents on the dash panel.


it sounds like it could be a problem with the vacuum motor it could also be a vacuum line or the switch. I would check the vacuum motor first when you check the vacuum motor you should also be able to see if there is vacuum in the line. if there is no vacuum in the line I would check the switch next.

No matter were I put vent control always blowing hot air


THIS PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY A FAILED PART CALLED A "AIR TEMPERATURE CONTROL BLEND DOOR ACUATOR MOTOR", IT IS LOCTED IN THE AIR DUCT AT THE BLEND DOOR APPROX CENTER OF DASH, IN MOST CASES THE DASH MUST BE REMOVED TO SERVICE THIS MOTOR..
