Two issues on my Heat and AC control.
1)Vent direction control feature does not provide consistent control when choosing between floor/dash vents. Lower vents will shut off intermittently. Upper vents will close vents active at all I can tell. I cannot identify a pattern. I have seen other forums list RPM (vacumn ?) as factor. I will idle vehicle and see if anything similar happens.

2) Even with temp on max heat, when I move vent control to both upper/lower vents, I can hear the compressor activate, and with a 4cyl, you notice the compressor engaging as well.

Is this a vacumn problem or a stuck/warped door problem ?

Thank you.

While driving down the highway at around 55mph the check engine light popped on and I felt engine shudder. After that it would bog down when trying to accelerate. Made it home and tried to start the next morning, it just cranks and cranks. One thing I noticed is when I turn the key on (not start position) the fuel pump runs constantly, where as it used to run and cut off like it built up pressure.
