Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am HVAC Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

DO you still need help?

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you.

Expert:  tims auto repair replied 6 months ago.

from the way you explain the problem,,this sounds as if you may have a bad mode door actuator..

be sure to check the vacuum lines to it before you replace,,

but i would think the diaphram is busted in it.
