Find the vacuumline that goes from the intake to the resirvoir and from the resirvoir to the inside of the cab. It isn't connected.

What causes heat and AC to only come out of the defroster vents on a Ford Taurus Mercury Sable?

Why would the ac and heater blow air through the defroster or the dashboard vents but not through the floor vents.?

It should blow through the floor vents. Modern vehicles generally use movable baffles in there HVAC systems, to direct air flow where the controls indicate. If the controls allow airflow to the floor, but nothing flows out, there is a malfunction between the control switch and the actuator that directs the flow.

Why do you get hot air at floor and defroster vents but only cold air at the dash vents vents in a 1995 chevyvan 20?

the middle vents only supply air from the ac unit using a separate in dash fan. the floor and defrost vents come only from the heater

What do you look for in having the blower blow to the floor and through the vents. Currently no matter how you adjust the AC or heater control it blows through the defroster by the windshield?

your switch cable might be broke you will have to remove your dash

What would the problem be if all of the ac blows through the defroster vents not through any of the dash or lower vents and how do you fix it?

It sounds like there is a vacuum leak. Check under the dash for any small hoses not attached and then look under the hood for any. The hoses should be small and grey or black.

Why won't cars let you select the Face vents and defrost vents at the same time?

The Heating/ ventilation systems in cars are large structures throughout the dash board, that have many channels of which air can flow through. When you use your face vents, the air is blowing from the upper vent channels. If you use the windshield defroster, the air comes from the very same upper channels, the channels just switch. They have a divider that blocks airflow one way or another. Very much like train tracks, when you change the settings with the switches, the airflow changes because the divider has moved. Therefore you cannot use both at once. The only reason why you can use the foot vents, and face vents at the same time, is because they have a divider that splits the channel that they share, you can use face vents (full force), foot vents (full force) or both split (half force). The Defroster is made to work fast, so if you use the face, and defroster vents at the same time, the defroster would be half as effective. This is why you cant use them both at the same time.

You have no heat coming out of the vents but do have heat at the floor and defroster on a 95 Plymouth neon 2.0liter 5 speed sohc?

Dont know what the problem is but i can tell you its a vacuum leak . the vents are vacuum operated and require air pressure to change between the vents and floor. the defroster is default setting you may have a vacuum line that has come undone but all i know is its somewhere under the dash.

What is causing the air to come through the defroster vents and not the AC vents in a 1995 Ford Mustang GT when the AC or vent knob is turned on?

I am sorry, I am not technical on this stuff, but we had the same problem on our 95 Mustang GT. We had to take it into the dealer and the problem was that one of the hoses had come loose, so it was not blowing enough air pressure to force the vents open.
