Hot air only

(1998 Lincoln Navigator)
in Tulsa, OK on November 12, 2010
Recently I discovered that I only get hot air from the vents...adjusting the temp control has no effect.

Can get air to go to Defrost, panel, floor...etc...however it is only HOT.

Sounds like a temperature blend problem. There is a door in the dash that modulates air from hot to cold and every combination in between. This door is likely not turning as commanded, due to a failed motor. If this is the case, the dash has to be removed to access the motor.

Good luck!

The most likely cause is a inoperative temperature blend door actuator or a broken temperature blend door. This is very common.
