Damages to the diode will cause a diode rectifier to go bad. It may cause to over voltage or voltage fluctuations.
heater core could be rusty and old or line to heater core could be plogged most likely old heater core
A blocked heater hose could cause a leak. A stopped up heater core could as well. Or the connector in the Windstar could be cracked.
It could be steam from the heater core
Blocked heater core, faulty heater valve, disconnected connection to the heater valve.
a bad water pump could cause low heat. The heater uses the coolant from the pump to generate heat.
A possible cause could be that you have a clogged heater core.
A rectifier is a device that converts an electronic current. The most common reasons for spark plugs not firing is because they have burned out not be a rectifier isnÕt working.
the heater core
it could be a few things, but id check the thermostat as its probly stuck open, or your heater core could be bad but that will cause a water leak in your car and its a pain to change. or you can check your heater hoses for sludge.. because 50/50 anti freeze tends to cause that
Thermostat and/or heater core may be defective
the heater core could be pluged or the heater control valve is stuck closed
The coolant leak is pretty cut and dry - you have a leak somewhere. The lukewarm heat (assuming you're referring to the car's heater) could be for a number of reasons. Insufficient coolant could be one of those. Your coolant could be burnt out. It could be a problem with one of your heater hoses. You could have a worn out heater core.
A heat rash?
Heater core is stopped up or thermostat is stuck open.
Maybe low coolant level
over heating is the contributory cause.
Either the linkage from the temp control unit to the valve on the heater core (which is behind the radio and temp controls) or it is the heater core itself.
the floor pan could be sagging due to rot around the heater channel. common cause.
the rectifier wont work. what exactly happens depends on which two are blown.it will either cause the a/c supply to completely short circuit or cause a half wave short short circuit which would probably cause other wiring to get damaged depending on the amps running in the circuit If two are shorted, then the rectifier would pass AC current instead of DC. If the two are "open" then you would get half wave rectification of DC instead of full wave. It would also depend upon what diodes shorted in the circuit. If both incoming diodes were open then no current would pass and the rectifier would be called a open circuit.
hi, did you faind an answer, i'm having the same problem, Cheers
If the problem is that the air never gets warm, it's most likely a stuck-open thermostat. If not that, heater core may be plugged.
Could be, low on coolant, stuck open thermostat, plugged heater core, faulty temp blend door actuator,
