2003 Explorer XLT - Heat only works when accelerating

Asked by Feb 05, 2015 at 02:42 PM about the 2003 Ford Explorer XLT V8

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For the last 2 weeks the heat would only work if I was accelerating. Would start blowing
cold air as soon as I was stopped. Now I get no heat at all as of today. What could this
be??

Appears to be a vacuum problem. It could be at the control knob on the dash or the vacuum bottle. The vacuum bottle on your vehicle should be in front of the blower motor. YOu have to remove the lower trim panel beneath the glove box to access it.
