Hello, I have a car that was given to me and I don't know much about cars, it worked good until 2 days ago when the air conditioning stopped working, I don't know why but it was suddently. I went in the car and it was not heating and no air was coming out so I am wondering what could be the problem? I don't want to go to a garage and get ripped off lol. Thank you very much for informations.

Hello -

To better assist you is your model just the Contour or the GL, LS, SE or SVT and what is the engine size in liter.

I am not sure I understand your question. Are you saying the engine is heating up okay. No overheat or anything there.

When you have the car running in park, there is no airflow at all from the vents if you select the heater or the AC. Nothing. You don't feel any air coming out of the vents even on high?

Hello -

Thanks for the info.

Yes the engine is a V6 but what is the liter size? You will need to know this for parts and various other things. Open the hood and look around on the decals and you should see one that states engine x.X liters.

That is nice the car was given to you. No worries on knowing a lot about cars. We all have are special talents. I am sure you have many we don't.

You are doing the correct thing though so you don't get as you said, "ripped off" . It happens all the time.

I am not sure if you will be doing the work yourself but will tell you what to do. If not clear, feel free to ask.

Based off of what you are saying it may be your HVAC blower motor relay, switch or motor itself. My first guess is the motor.

Do you have a voltage meter to do some checks and a couple lengths of wire?
