2005 freestar

My heater is not working properly , the drivers side blows cold out the vents and the passenger side blows hot . also the drivers side has more air pressure than the passenger side , it does this on all settings , floor , defrost etc,,,. Im thinking it has something to do with the flapper door in the vent tubes ?? but not to sure where to begin, any suggestions before i start tearing the thing apart?

Re: 2005 freestar

You may have a partially blocked heater core. If you haven't changed and flushed the coolant since the vehicle was purchased (if you're the second owner then you should change all fluids anyway for better piece of mind!), it'd be a good idea to do so. The blend door may be sticking, but there isn't a blend door for each vent tube. It's an assembly located under the dash that is vacuum actuated by the control knobs on the dash. It's also not an easy job to do, even for yourself, but you'll save a weeks worth of pay if you do the job yourself. I would do a coolant flush just as it's the cheaper possible fix.

Pressures can vary between vents due to bends in the tubing as well as diameter. Look under the cowl (below windshield wipers) and make sure there is no debris blocking the intake area for the fan. You may have to open the hood.

I once had this problem on a 93 Thunderbird. Someone (wife ) kicked the vacuum tube loose from the actuator. If you can hear the sound of rushing air anywhere under the dashboard that wasn't there before, hunt it down and look for a hose that may be partially disconnected.
