The ac in your 1993 ford explorer works fine until the engine temp gauge goes a bit past mid way at that point the ac blows hot air once the engine temp gauge goes back to halfway the ac is cold again?

Just like the radiator cools the water going into your engine, the condensor (located in front of the radiator) cools the refridgerant in the ac system. The temp of the radiator can directly affect the cooling efficiency of the ac. You either are having a cooling problem in the ac or in the engine. If your ac is not properly charged the heat from the radiator has a greater effect on the ac system. If you have already had this checked out, then you have a engine cooling problem. I had an explorer that did the same thing. Found out it was a two fold problem. One I had a small leak at a hose connection that would over time lower my coolant level and second,I had a thermostat that was working improperly. The thermostat was working enough to keep the eng from overheating but it was causing my water temp to run a little hotter than it should. Explorer gauges are known to not be entirely accurate so you SUV could be running a little hotter than what you think. Either one the eng cooling sys. or the ac sys. charge is nore than likely your problem. If you have a reputable shop nearby you can have your ac sys checked for a small price and sometimes free. You just need to be sure that it is a place that will tell you the truth for yu to accurately trouble shoot your problem. You could go the other route and go to a mechanic shop and have them check the cooling sys. This shouldn't cost much and yu might go ahead and have them flush it and service it if has been a while. After that is done and you still have the problem then you will know the ac needs serviced if it is still not working.

If it blows every time you try to crank the engine over, the starter may have failed.If it blows every time you try to crank the engine over, the starter may have failed.

Too much engine oil could be the problem.

Answeri blow mine to blown head gasket. $600 to fix .oil goes every whereusually when we say an engine blows it is catastrophic like a rod thru the block or a broken crankshaft in other words you need a new engine

it has a big engine and it blows out fire to make it take of

You probably shorted something with the water, check your fuses, replace any that are "blown". If the fuse "blows" again then start disconnecting connectors on the engine and get "all" the water out and replace fuse again. Not a good idea to hose down an engine especially if it's hot. you get water on a "very hot" exhuast pipe and you may crack it. TommyTrouble

It's worn and sticking, once it gets hot enough it breaks loose and opens then it sticks again until it gets so cool that it breaks loose again, closes and lets the engine warm up. Replace the thermostat before you overheat and cause severe engine problems.

The blower is common to hot and cold air. If it is only cold air that is a problem, then the problem is not the blower motor. The blower motor is actually in the engine compartment, passenger side at the firewall.

The engine blows. Usually pistons shoot into the engine. In most cases the engine will have to be replaced.

sounds like you need a new blower fan. costs approx. 200

The current flow in the circuit has extended the rating of the fuse.

You don't. It falls into the water and isn't mentioned again until the end, where it blows meteor out of the sky.

The engine fan on a 2003 Pontiac Montana works by turning on when the engine reaches a certain temperature. It then blows cool air across the radiator and engine to maintain a constant temperature.

You Don't - It just breaks and blows the engine

to much oil in the crankcase is the #1 cause.

User Avatar

um when your engine blows smoke out the bonet cos its over heated.

User Avatar

If it still blows cold when it is at running temp, check the engine thermostat, its probably stuck in the open position.

Do you mean the defroster fan? If so yes if it blows the main engine circuit breaker in the fuse block.
