Asked by Nov 19, 2014 at 09:45 AM about the 1999 Ford Expedition

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The rear vents in the cabin blow hot air but the front vents are cool.  I assume they all
work off of the same heater core?  if thats the case then is my next step this dreaded
blend door that seems to be a common problem?  I've pretty much narrowed it down to
that but was just looking for any other ideas or tips.

it does get a little warm but never hot enough to keep the feet warm or thaw the windshield.

yep. that and thermostat was my first step. i honestly didn't think that was the problem because of being hot in the back but not in front but i started there anyway.

Check the vacuum lines and linkage to be sure trap doors are working correctly.
