I have a 98 ranger 2.5L that only blows hot air> the control dial has no effect on the temp. Can you help?
Do you
have the same problem?

I have a 96 Ranger with similar problem. My temperature switch seems to have only 2 settings, cold and hot. It doesn't matter what the selector knob is set to (ie. Non-AC setting), if I turn the temp switch to the blue area (cold), I get AC air (not just cold air from outside, but AC air). Recently, it has started acting even goofier. The only way to get AC air is in the "Max AC" setting. All other settings give me heat, regardless of the temperature switches setting. Have you had any luck figuring out your problem? It might help me figure out what's wrong with my truck.

Thank you so much for the step by step. One final question, can I drive this vehicle until I find the time to attempt to fix it?

Sure, drive away. Mine's been unplugged while I have been trying to fix it (still trying to find the perfect place for the "pin" and no time to do it). Since that piece is broke on the blend door it doesn't matter whether or the accuator it is plugged in or not. Everything in mine is the same as it would be if it were plugged in.
