Vent Vaccum hoses on '03 Windstar

Hey michigan man. Thanks for the advice on checking the vent vaccum hoses. The hoses looked okay behind the control unit. I then followed 1 orange and 1 black hose going behind the glove compartment and then I think they go to the engine area. I looked under the hood and found a vaccum line with a T splitter. 1 red hose went to the engine area. 1 black went to the inside of the van. The 3rd opening was open. Is that orange hose suppose to connect to that or does it go somewhere else? If it is suppose to, then how do I get it to the engine area? I tried to see of the orange one was loose on the inside, but it didn't really pull back at all. Do you have any ideas? Thanks in advance.


(p.s. sorry for the wrong category wouldn't let me choose past Ford)

Our 1998 buick lasabre air condioning will not blow out vents. everything works, but it wont blow out vents. it will blow on window vent and blows on floor vent.but the middle vents will not blow out.

ck to see if your vaccum hose if broken at the engine vaccum connection, it may have a vaccum hose split or a bad vaccum switch/actuator, if it has manual a/c, if it has electronic a/c then your mode actuator is not working.

Air stopped coming out of teh face vent

you have a blend air door problem. if the control head is working properly then you should look behind the glove compartment for loose vaccum lines or wires.

Switch will not change from defogger to other vents. What are possible problems and solutions

Sounds like the blower motor actuator which is vacuum driven. You most likely have a vacuum leak, preventing the actuator from switching from defrost to vent. Check under the hood and start at the firewall (usually on the passenger side) and with the blower on high, look for a possible vacuum leak. Best of luck.
