It's that time of the year again...
I know I tend to pop in just for advice, and I feel indebted to you all for pointing me in the right direction. This site has been a great help for when I sinmply cannot find the answer on my own.
I have a new question, and this revolves around marital bliss. My own vehicles, from my F150 to my new cheap-on-gas daily Hyindai have no issues with the A/C. Personally I much prefer rolling down the window and throing an elbow out than slididing the dial to blue. But this is a different story with my wife and the tribe-mobile.
About two years ago the heater in the front quit working, followed by the rear heater the next year. This past summer the A/C quit. I went to Wally-World and picked up some refridgerant, but realized that none was really needed according to the guage. The compressor cycles on and off as it should, but there is absolutely no air coming out the vents. There is air coming out, but it's not hot when it's cold outside, and not cold when it's hot outside. And before I decide to tear into the dash and figure out what is going on, I come to you all.
The vehicle in question is a 2000 Ford Windstar LX with the 3.8 liter. It has dual climate controls on it also. Again, the A/C mechanically speaking looks like it is working. The blower motors work at all speeds, both front and rear.
I plan on draining the radiator and back flushing it this weekend as well as changing the thermostat. Hopefully that will fix the heat issues. As for the A/C, my wife says fix it or it goes to the local shop. I guess in woman talk that means I sleep on the couch and hang my head in shame anytime I see a car with the hood open.
Oh yeah, I hope this is in the right section.
