Make them work properly.

Seriously though, what does, "not working properly" mean? That can apply to a dozen different symptoms, and I don't have enough time left in my life to type an answer for each one of them.

My ac will blow out of every vent but the front two. When I got my oil changed it started working. This morning I turned on the defrost and now it doesn't work again. What could it be? When it started working again it was spitting stuff at me. I would like to try and fix it myself if possible otherwise it'll just stay broken. Please help.

If you are lucky, you may hear a whistling sound if there is a leak. Under the dash, you will see vacuum hoses. Just make sure none are broken or disconnected. Also, there is a supply hose from the engine. Make sure it is good.

That is nearly always caused by a bad blower motor resister. It's located under the dash on the passenger side, in the blower housing and next to the blower motor.

The mode doors are operated by an electric actuator that controls air direction. There can be a problem with the door jamming, the actuator itself or the control head that controls it.
