Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing more. are you saying the air only comes out of the defroster (windshield), if so the issue is a few different things, 1, broken vacuum canister under the heater box in the engine bay, most people get a new canister and route it up to the fender on the passenger side, and get a new check valve ,
2- the vacuum line is disconnected from the valve on the drivers side fender or up on the wiper cowl, that line is what supplies vacuum from the solenoid to the heater system,
3- the solenoid that turns on and off the vacuum has failed not allowing vacuum to pass. hope this information helps. Lou.
