problem #4

Explorer LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 163,000 miles

No matter what setting is selected only very hot air comes out of the vents - not even fresh air - it's always super heated. I can't even tell if the air conditioning works or not because it only BLASTS hot air.

Explorer Limited V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles

Had the same problem at 120000 miles and didn't expect to have the same problem again. I really like the car but if I put another 1200.00 into it that is more then it is worth!!! Will be looking for a Chevy or Dodge now because winter is coming on.

the heater does not blow hot air when turned on. this happened last year and everything checks out on the vehicle that says the heater should work. I think it is a vent flap that is not switching over? Any help would be nice.
