Is the air only coming out the top of the dash through the defroster vents?

You have vacuum leak. Inspect the vacuum line that comes from the engine to the passenger side firewall where the evaporator is. One line is gray and the other one is black. The black one is prone to cracking due to engine heat. Inspect the lines under the hood first and make sure the black one is connected to the engine.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
