#11 of 144 Rear-Overhead Vents Not Working
Oct 23, 2007 (8:57 am)
Just yesterday i went to turn on the rear A/C for my kids and the air wasn't blowing out of the overhead vents. We could hear the air blowing but it was blowing in the third row seat floor vent. Any ideas?

Hello, I have a 1998 Expedition with the 4.6l motor. There is some heat coming out of both sets of vents, but it doesn't get 'hot' at all. The temperature regulator knob seems to work. What might be the problem? Thank you for your help.

This is a 4 dollar part that when it fails it does so in a way to keep the car from overheating and the cabin heater core from ever getting hot enough to give you "heat"
If the air from the vents gets colder at highway speeds, then this is the likely culprate.

I have a very similar problem as to these other postings I have read,I have a 1998 ford expedition xlt with a 4.6 ltr engine,any ways
I just realized that my heat is not blowing hot air it is blowing luke warm to cold air & I am freezing in the a.m.!! even when I start the truck in the am I let it run for like 20 min & still no heat!! I changed the thermostat and did a radiator flush with top of the line anti freeze,on the high way it does get worm thats about it,but when i slow down it gets cold again. I am starting to think the heater core is on its way out!!
does anybody have any idea why this is happening? is my heater core on the way out??
is it easy to change?what else can it be?
I would like to fix asap as I do have kids to bring to school in the am!

#18 of 144 Expedition Climate Control Problem
Nov 15, 2007 (4:17 pm)
I have a 2004 Expedition. My air only blows up by the window, and not out the vents like it is supposed to. The switch that controls where the air will blow doesn't seem to be working properly, because I only get air flow at the window ( like defrost) and off. Do I need to replace this switch or is it some vacuum line or something that is not allowing the air to transfer to the proper location that I select?

I have a 05 Expedition EB with heated and cooled seats and had the same problem. I called the dealer and they said it was the control unit, but I did'nt think so because when I tried to switch it to vents I can hear a clicking noise like it's trying to move. So I started pulling the center console out and looking at the vacuum lines that control were th air gets switched. there is a manifold that has 6 tubes in it. A black,white,red,orange,blue, and yellow. The black and white are the two that come from the vacuum side so I took a air compressor and blew into all the tube and then it started working again. So I think the small tube must have had some junk in the line. I took some pictures of the area so if would like to receive them just email me at eddiemcninchatt.net and I will send them to you.
