I am looking for a FORD/MERCURY MECHANIC WHO'S FAMILIAR WITH AC/HEATING/VENTILATION/EMISSIONS/EATC VACUUM SYSTEM in FORDS.
We finally painstakingly replaced the heater core in my: 2001 Ford Explorer 5.0 AWD Eddie Bauer VIN# (1FMZU84P21UB24312) w/Automatic/Dual EATC/Climate Control AC.
Question: How do I get the air to blow out of the front cabin (VENTS/FLR/DEFROST)? Although, It DOES blow in the rear cabin when rear's are turned on.
BTW - There wasn't a drop down Category listed as Ford. Only UK Ford. No US Ford either.
-This problem existed prior to replacing the Heater Core.
- Tested working are the: Fuses, Blower Motor
and Blend Door/Blend Door Actuator. Although, I couldn't feel the air :directly in front" of the blower wheel while it was spinning. This was the far lower right passenger side under the dash while the Vacuum motor flap would be open. But, I think that the wheel UNLIKE A FAN blows to the side into the AC/Box Plenum rather than straight ahead. Correct?
-There are (3) disconnected vacuum lines in the engine
compartment. (1) - is a black thin disconnected vacuum line stemming from this dangling plastic softball-sized globe (I believe to be The Vacuum Reservoir?) which isn't bracketed anywhere btw. The other line from this vacuum reservoir IS however connected into the engine. (2) is a black thin disconnected vacuum line which looks melted/sealed shut probably from the hot engine. It stems from somewhere underneath the AC/Box Plenum possibly going into the firewall. I'm thinking this "might be" a continuation of the 1st line(1)? and (3) is a gray thin disconnected vacuum line with an "L" shaped fitting on the end. It stems also from somewhere underneath the AC/Box Plenum possibly going into the firewall. I installed a Heater Control Valve and think that maybe it (the gray one with L-shaped fitting) plugs into that (the Heater Control Valve)?Nevertheless, I'm not getting any airflow to the front vents/def/flr.
