The block heater plug in on a 1998 Ford Windstar is in the engine compartment on the passenger side of the vehicle. When lifting up the hood, look on the left for a small hose that is coiled up at the very front, above the passenger headlamp.

The air in your 98 windstar blows cold in rear but blows warm up front any tips?

#1 problem with Windstar climate control - the inability to adjust the temperature settings.Heaters blow cold, A/C blow warm or hot.There's a small actuator motor that moves the temperature blend door under the dash. Open all the way and the air picks up the maximum heat passing through the heater core. Close it and no air passed through the core.The source of the problem is this motor fails.Luckily, this is an easy do-it-yourself fix and the part is widely available.See "Related Questions" below for moreHopefully, this is your fix too...

I would first check either the controls to the front heater core or a blocked front heater core. It could also be a blocked or missing heater hose to the front heater core, although that seems quite unlikley.

Where is the block heater in an 2001 windstar?

Block heaters are not a factory option, they must be installed by the owner. If you are the original owner, there is no block heater. If you see an electric cord hanging out of the front of the car, you might have a block heater, or a oil pan heater, or a battery charger. Follow the cord, and see where it goes. A block heater is a device for heating the coolant to keep the engine warm in cold weather. It is generally connected to the heater hoses, and can be mounted somewhere in the engine compartment, or just hanging from the hoses.

Why is your 2000 ford windstar not blowing hot air in the front or the back?

Your windstar rear AC and heater blows hot air all the time and the right front does not gets hot?

change out the switch that controls the a/c heat to the rear ( the farthest switch to right). It's a vacuum switch that isn't very hard to do, just remorve one cover and unscrew it. The first couple of times you use it after you change it out it will act like it isn't working, but as the vacuum pressure builds it will catch.
