the a/c pump needs to circulate the fluid in the lines to cool them. that said it takes some time to cool them all off.

i was told it was either a blend door or mode door actuator,because it's running,but it takes ten to twenty minutes for it to come out.


Actuator or servo / blend door Fords so GUILTY on BLEND doors! dealer can scan and get the EXACT problem on screen using IDS-VCM scan tool, Regards
