Why would your AC work but throw out cold air only in the top vents not through the front vents?

Usually it's because of a vacuum leak from a defective hose or a vacuum hose that is disconnected. Sometimes, if it has a vacuum canister, the canister is bad or the vaccum hose has fallen off or somebody forgot to reconnect the hose. Usually it is a very small hose that you will need to find, like 1/8 inch. This is caused by the vacuum from the engine intake manifold not getting into the cab. Check that vacuum line for soft spots, kinks or being disconnected. Good luckJoe The vacuum is used to activate vacuum motors which open and close doors in the air ducts. The doors control the flow of the air to the correct vents. For instance, warm air is sent to the vents below the windshield to provide a defrost function. Cold air is often sent to the vents on the front of the dash for air conditioning. After a period of time, the diaphragms in the vaccum motors will begin to leak causing the vacuum motor not to work. This is a common problem on 1980's Mercedes and can only be remedied by replacing the vaccum motor.

But, first check for loose or leaking hoses and fittings or a defective vaccum switch.

to throw a block you would press the key Q and you would throw the block a few feet in front of you.




You might have a gas leak in your front engine compartment. The heater pull in air from the front and therefore if you got a gas leak it will pull the smell in get it check asap.



In a wagon, the horses would throw clumps of mud off their hooves when they would "dash"(or run). The dashboard was the board on the front that kept the mud off the passengers.

Flamethrowers throw fire or "flames as in flamethrower" so you would never like to be in front of it.


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.


The flap that directs sir to the selected vents is jammed or broken...or the switch that controls it is.



Just heater outlets for the rear area. If you were to remove the console assembly which hides the engine cover, you would see a duct running from the top to beneath the floor. It feeds the vents you mentioned.


Without testing a guess would be a blend door or actuator or maybe a control problem


the rim Actually, the free throw line is measured from the front edge of the backboard out 15'. This would be where the line should be located.




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.



Vents are uaually operated by vacuum. Chances are, you have a vacuum leak at the directional valve or at the back of the air controller itself. All of these are in or under the dash. Good luck.


so they are easier to throw and can spiral through the air i think i would look it up


There are two separate accumulators one for front and one for rear


There is no heater matrix for the back air vents, only and evaporator for the A/C. My suburban always blowed cold until I added an extra rear heater matrix.


Grab him by his belt bukle and throw him/her out the front door. If it was a random drunk off the street I would call the police.


Sounds like your heater core has a leak and the sweet smell is your coolant.


Deep-sea thermal vents also called Hydrothermal vents or black smokers
