#529 of 539 ac only works on maxac.... moving up a hill hot air blows
Jul 19, 2013 (10:19 am)
1997 ford explorer xlt 4.0 ohv mantrans.
i have narrowed the problem down to a vacuum problem. There is no vacuum on line to heatcontrol valve and no leak on line. Vacuum diagram shows an outside resurculate door vacuum motor between the inside instrument panel line and the heater control valve outside line.
IS there anyone outthere who could point me in the direction of locating the vacuum motor where is it and how difficult is it to replace?
#530 of 539 98' Explorer AC issue
Aug 19, 2013 (7:05 am)
1998 Explorer XLT with 5.0 liter with 100k miles. At 35k, receiver/dryer replaced due to rusting out (original wrapped in foam by Ford...). Has worked fine ever since.
A/C was blowing hot. Turned to vent control, expecting outside air (upper vent and combination upper/lower settings are the two settings that do NOT use A/C compressor). Air was very hot.
Turned car off, turned key to on. Vent setting blows cool outside air. Start car, air immediately turns very hot. Temperature control has no impact.
Seems almost like when the car is running, the air is being pulled directly from the heater?
This doesn't seem to be an A/C charging issue since I can't get the vent to even work. Started to do research, but I don't have A/C repair experience. If it's a mechanical problem, like some door broke and I can get to it to replace it, might be able to remedy situation.
I'm thinking that since we only have a few more weeks of hot weather, I MAY choose to temporarily pull blower motor fuse to see if that makes the vent funnel outside air while driving.
I've read about blend door issues, but haven't figured out how to diagnose that yet.
Thanks in advance!

#532 of 539 a/c and heater both stopped working, blower still blows air

My ac went out on a camping trip this summer. Thought it was just an ac issue, then this morning when I went to turn my heater on on my way to work it wouldn't blow hot air! Bad luck I guess. Air still blows but it is just air from outside... any ideas? I have none... please help...
