Lincoln Town Car Heating / Cooling



  • I inherited a 93 Towncar and the AC will only blow out of the dash and floor vents. I replaced the AC/Heater dash control. I was told there may be a vacuum leak, can anyone tell me where the vacuum hoses are located. If anyone knows anything else this could be your advice is appreciated.
  • What is the best way to get to and replace a heater blender motor in a 94 town car. Thanks

    My 1993 town car overheats when I turn on the air condition. The temperture gauge goes up after the a/c is on for 15-20 minutes and when I turn the a/c off the temperture returns to normal in 2-3 minutes. The car doesn't overheat no other time.

    My heater and AC work fine except the airflow will not change from defrost to any other setting wether on auto or manual. I've read online that this may be the plenum door not moving. If this is the case then I need to have some information on how to tackle this problem. I have a 1993 Lincoln Town car Executive with the climate control. Thanks for any and all help. :)

    This appears to be a vacuum leak, but it is really hard to find. Any suggestions?

    I replaced the AC/Heater control in the dash and it now works perfectly. A friend took the control out first and tested the vacuum going into it and it was good. I bought the control off of EBay.

    I smell antifreeze ony when the climate control system is activated..any suggestions?
  • nwraaanwraaa Posts: 159
    You smell antifreeze because the heater core is leaking. This is an expensive fix because the dash board has to be removed to get at the heater core which only runs $50.00 to $70.00. Labor and hoses under the hood, $900.00. I use radiator stop leak and I have had no problems.

    Regarding the temperature change, the internal temperature sensor may not be functioning properly. I don't understand why you would be feeling moist air. Do you smell antifreez when this happens?

    When the interior temp comes close to the exterior while in A/C, my blower fluctuates significantly until it shuts down. My dealer found issues with the baffle doors and replaced those, but the problem with the fluctuation persists. They tested another 2007 on their lot and it had the same problem. It doesn't affect the performance of the car but is incredibly annoying. I purchased the car in August of '08 and and it took me nearly a year with multiple visits to the dealer to get the problem to reproduce. They claim to be investigating but I have heard nothing. It doesn't seem right that this luxury car should have this kind of problem with no fix. Any thoughts?
  • well this will be the first of what im sure will be many posts. lincoln lover here, have had a 79 townecoupe, 89 town car and now i went with a 95 town car 130 K miles, my cooling question has to do with the unit blowing nice and hard, but only hot air, could still hear the compressor engaging but only blowing hot air, real hot, and today went underneath and couldnt hear the compressor engage anymore. i live in houston, and needless to say no A/C pretty much sucks. i've read that its the blend door actuator, so my question is if anyone has the ford part number for that part? and if that person feels that it truly could be that issue. thanks in advance for any help.
  • i have a 1998 town car that is'nt blowing any hot air, ther are no leaks, no thermostat problems, and the heater core is ok. the heater would flucuate for a time between hot and cold, but now i get all cold air. i heard some grinding noise under the dash for awhile that sounded like the system trying to open or close some vents, but that noise has disappeared along with the heat. the control head i replaced this summer when i was'nt getting any a/c, but that was'nt the problem. it was a valve under the dash that was faulty, and cost me $800 to replace, i don't have the money for another repair like that. HELP SOMEONE!!!!!

    It is the same problem. The blend door actuator is stuck in the A/C position. It is a $49.00 part that requires that the dash to be removed to be installed. The labor is about $95.00 per hour. Take the car back to the same folks that repaired it before and see if they had some kind of warranty when they did the previous install.
  • is there anywhere i can get a schematic on the actuator door location? i'm asking this because, if i don't get any help from the dealer who did the previous install, i'll try and do it myself. hoping i don't have to buy a repair manual to the job. any suggestions??
  • I have a 1995 Town Car that needs a new blender door actuator. In order to replace it the dash needs to be removed. Does anyone know how to remove the dash? I have got it part way loose but it seems stuck/fastened at the lower sides and also to the vent system. I have already removed the 4 screws up by the windshield. If someone has a breakdown as to how to remove the dash, it would be most helpful.
  • I went to the local dealer's parts counter and asked to see the location, cost and availability of part. He showed me the part in relationship to other items in the nearby location on his computer screen, very helpful.

    In respect of your opinions I'm asking for your input on this question.

    If all you get is cold air from the heater, would setting the AC to 72 enable warm air to enter the cabin from the AC ducts?

    Euphonium, On that model Town Car, when the blend door actuator jams, it makes no difference where you set the Automaic Temperature Control (ATC). (The brand new actuators jam too sometimes.) For some reason, it does not fail middle way. It fails in the all hot or all cold position. In the winter, it seems that it fails in the cold position and in the summer, you got it, it fails in the heat position. The system on your Town Car is not the same. The Town Car that you have is mostly vaccuum operated. As long as the control unit on the hot hose at the fire wall on your car is okay and the ATC is working properly you should not have the blend door actuator problem. It seemed to be a good idea to design the blend door system that way, but the actuator is not robust enough handle the constant back and forth movement required to make the system work automatically. An indication that the unit is getting ready to fail is a constant clicking under the dash that sounds similar to an activated turn signal. It is a time consuming, laborous job to replace/install the unit. You have to take the front panel off, drop the steering wheel, move the dashboard, etc. I have not seen a post which indicates that the actuator can be replaced without moving the dashbord.
