Customer Question

Second opinion] I have a 2010 f150 king ranch with 93000 miles with 5.4 engine crew cab 6.5 ft box the problem I have is I get cold air out driver side vents even when set at highest temp on the climate controls, passenger side operates as it should. I had a mechanic look at it yesterday he thought it was the achuator motor in the heater box, do you have any ideas ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Have you checked for a leak in the radiator?

No i have not because the passenger side works fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I took it to a ford mechanic

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

One thought I have does this little motor in the heater box have a fuse for the driver side and one for passenger side?

The most common cause of the type of problem you are having is in most cases caused by a failing blend door actuator, your King Ranch has a LH side blend door actuator and an RH side blend door actuator and in your case, the LH side actuator has failed. Are you planning on fixing this your self?

no not fixing myself, wish I could because I am looking at one or two days labor at today's rates, unless you know some short cuts It is not right that I need to pay between 600 and 1000 dollars labor to replace a 35.00 dollar part. Merrill
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts on the LH side blend door actuator, its located inside of the AC/heater plenum and the complete assembly has to come out for access. See the link below to get an idea of what is required. The labor to do this runs right at 7.8 hours.

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.
