Air Conditioning problem
1997 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles
Last month the heater core assembly was replaced by an out of town Ford dealer for $1,100. The AC was working perfectly when I took it in, which I knew from trying everything to clear my fogged windshield. A few days ago I discovered that my AC now blows only HOT air.
I took it in today to my local Ford dealer who insists that I need a new temperature door accuator motor and that it's in no way a coincidence that the AC only quit working after the heater core repair was done by a different dealer.
He said that the accuator motor and heater core aren't even near one another so wouldn't have been affected.
I called another mechanic who refuted that and said that most likely the temperature door wire was disconnected during the heater core repair and not reconnected.
How do I go about determining the truth and not spending another $305 if not needed?
I greatly appreciate your expertise and time.
