    Blower Air Flow Speed Measurement / Test

    So I had a mechanic replace my recycle flap, and since then, it just seems the air coming out of the vents isn't as much as it was. So I got a air speed monitor and tested it. Does anyone out there have one and can do the same tests? I put it on max air, recycle, and closed all vents except...

    Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum so please forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong area. Anyways, the issue I'm having on my 2004 Explorer XLT 4.6 V8 is that when I turn my defrost control to either the floor, defrost/floor, or just defrost, NOTHING changes. I'm getting warm and cold air...

    Black Air Vent Vacuum line... blockage??

    Hi all, My air vents are stuck on "defrost" mode no matter what the selector is set to. So I need some advice reguarding the thin hard plastic vacuum line that runs from the "ball accumulator" into the fire wall and then on to the airvent actuator. It appears that there is a blockage in the...

    '97 Eddie Bauer No air from htg/def/a/c vents

    Blower working, very loud as no air is being pushed. Vacuum resevoir ok, checked lines for leaks found none. Recirc door for a/c opens and closes fine. Door in floor vent by accelerator moves depending which button I push (vent, panel, def, floor, etc). I assume it is not a vacuum prob. I disc...

    Very low airflow

    (98 Merc Mountaineer 5.0 L 302 HO) I seem to have low airflow form my front vents( including the defroster vents) even when the fan is set to high. The fan sounds like it should on all settings and the airflow to the rear seating area seems to be unaffected. The air temps that it is putting out...

    Hot air always!!! Hot air coming through vents

    I drive a 98 AWD Explorer. I bought it in 2005, at which time the air temperature control was not working. So essentially, I could either get hot air with the heater or vents on, and cold air with the AC. But I could turn the system off and close the vents as well. A while ago, the AC...
