Currently the airflow is coming out of my defrost vents. When I move
the slider to heater or vent the air continues to come out of the
defrost vents. Does anyone have an idea on how to rectify the problem?
Of note... I did remove the air conditioning from the car. I
disconnected the silver canister connected to the black box on the
firewall via two metal hose connectors. I didn't seal those
connections after removing the canister. Could that be the problem? I
am not sure if I had the defrost/heater/vent problem immediately after
removing the air conditioning canister.
My guess is that you have a vacuum hose loose or disconnected, probably
something you did accidentally in the process of removing the AC.
I'm curious, why did you go to all the trouble to actually remove the
I had the motor stripped right down replacing all the gaskets along
with a new fuel and cooling system. I was right in the thick of it so
it really didn't seem like much to remove it.
I have been checking all the vacuum hoses and haven't been able to
track anything down, perhaps I have to plug the two lines that the
tank was hooked to.
I had a similar problem on a GM product years ago, and mine was solved when
I discovered a disconnected vacuum hose.
My guess is that you have this problem as well... and it could be that the
two lines will fix it.
Otherwise, I'm unable to offer you any better advice - a lot has changed
