    Suddenly, from one day to the next, my 2006 Ford Explorer overheated. The mechanic says that I need a new heater hose which is like "one giant octopus". Cost for labor and part is $650. Does any of this seem normal?

    Max AC Heat Adjustment

    Does everyone else’s Max AC get warmer if they turn the ac dial to heat? My normal AC gets warmer as I turn up the heat, but I can have the heat all the way up during Max AC and it’ll still be really cold air. From what I understand Max AC only differs since it recirculates air from the cabin...

    A/C and Heat Only Work on High Setting

    I am having some problems with my climate control in my 2002 explorer sport trac. On fan settings 1,2, and 3 there is no air coming from the vent. However, on the high setting, 4, they both work just fine. I read that this can be related to the blower motor resistor so checked that out. It was a...
