Ok it's an 04 Mountaineer, and has the dual climate control. This weekend, heat would not work at all, and then started working fine. I knwo the problem would of couse return and did today. At 90 degrees heat/defrost/vent work fine, but very HOT. One click on the temp down brings it to 85 and everything goes cold. Anyone else experienced a problem like this? Ideas? Thanks for any help!!!

My wife's 97 exploder blows heat on everything, but max a/c, which blows ice cold. Been doing that for a while now. There's not much in between on that thing anymore.

we have a shortcut way to do it, leaves out the dash pulling part. if you check it and that is definitely the problem and you think you're up to fixing it yourself PM me, i'll give you my secret repair.

Thanks, Tomcat, but it's got 214,000 miles on it. We're just looking for a good deal on a replacement at this point. It has done its duty admirably with little outside the realm of typical maintenance (other than the goofy a/c).

Well, you are certainly entitled to rib Ford a bit after that Exploder broke down on you while towing your boat to the East Coast Reunion. But, I bet your F-250 gave you a lot of good years, right?

Get this, her stepmother had a 92 explorer sport with a manual shift. Got 180,000 miles out of the first clutch. When they traded the car in, it had 229,000 miles on it.
