Check for a clogged heater core. Try back flushing it to see if it clogged.

The other thing to check would be the air mix doors. Ensure they are opening and closing correctly.

Yup, you are correct about that, so flushing the heater should be the thing to do first.

Since both hoses are not hot, I believe the passage is clogged somewhere and as thermostat had been replaced with no overheating issues, I have nothing to add to the above.

Just ensure the coolant level is correct and there are no air trapped in system after the replacement of thermostat etc.

Hello,

This problem is with the blend door actuator gears being stripped out which will not move the temperature door. Here is a guide and some diagrams to help you get the problem fixed, you can get the part from amazon.

Please let me know what happens so it will help others.

Best, Ken

Air Conditioning problem
1998 Lincoln Navigator V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

My truck blows out hot air when the a/c is on. It will blow out cold air in the back of the truck but not the front. Also in the winter it will not blow out heat, but it will blow heat in the rear.

1st I had Air & Heat. Then I had air & heat, but only really cold or really hot (no in between). Then I only had really hot, no air. Then I had no heat. Then I would get heat again, but only if I turned the air conditioning on. Then I would get heat using the air or the heater. Now I'm back to no heat. Please help.

The temperature is controlled by the use of an air mix door that is operated by an electric motor/actuator. This door can be jammed or the actuator can be inoperative or have stripped plastic gears internally.

Heater problem
2000 Lincoln Navigator V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic

My navigator will not produce any heat. The compressor will run in AC and cool properly. I am not sure if it is a fuse, vacuum or sensor.

Thanks for your help
