    It sounds like you have a blend door problem in your Climate Control System. This will need to be inspected by a good Climate Control Diagnostic person.

    the air duct system is run by a vaccum pump under the dash.the plastic cam on the arm is possibly broke. i have metal tape holding that together for a couple of years now.
