Question about 1985 Mazda RX-7

1 Answer

Air flow problem

The air flow slide on my '85 RX7 won't move from blowing air at my feet. It won't change positions to flow to the windshield or through the vents. The fan works fine, as does the temp control. It just won't change the airflow.
Thanks

Hi 2Manytoys.

You'll need to remove the parts of the consul that give access to the unit and then inspect the operating levers, cables and the ducting vent baffles....The problem will be there...make sure that nothing has fallen into the operating units....Check and see where and whats stuck....Just observation and patients

Have fun, it's part of the toy,

Regards Johngee10

Vents won't blow hot or cold air. Comes from defrost and feet when you put fan on.


It's the vent actuator, it moves the baffle that changes the direction of the air flow.
Here is a video of a broken vacuum hose that creates the same problem.

It could also be a failed actuator.

Defroster not blowing


your blend door motor IS your defroster problem , as it is needed to direct heat mixed with the ac to properly defrost the windshield . if when you change your blend door motor and the problem still exsist , then youy have a defective blend door package , meaning one of the doors are faulty , which could get very expensive to repair , good luck !!!

A/C will only blow through defrost vents


Common question on this site. On late model cars, the vents are controlled by blend door motors. Small electric motors open and close doors to direct air flow.
Chances are you have a blend door that is stuck or a failed motor.
The default position is the defrost to make sure the windshield is always clear.
Someone will need to look behind the dash to see if all of the doors will move on demand.

I have 85 rx7 12a engine carb getting spark and fuel,it will turn but it won't start what could it be.


It takes 3 things for a car to run... spark, fuel, and air. Sounds like you should be looking for a problem with the air, IF it is getting spark and fuel. Food for thought.

The air flow is controlled by an actuator behind the dash. The part is sometimes called the heater control box. When you are selecting the air flow to change from the a/c controller. The signal is not being received to the actuator. The actuator is called the blend door.
You need to have the air /blend door actuator change. I think in this car is the air recirculation door. Same thing different name .

Good luck

1994 Jeep Wrangler, heater problems


Sounds like the blend door that diverts air flow inside the heater box is not working, or, the heater control valve on the heater hoses in the engine bay is not closing.
