Heater stays hot???

I have a 98 Explorer XLT - When the heat is on the gauge to control the tempreture does not work. If I turn it to cooler air it stays HOT! I tried the A/C and that doesn't work as well.
What could this be? Please help.

You have a very common yet very nasty problem with the heater box. Its an expensive repair but you dont have a choice if you want your air to work right. Others on this forum have dealt with the problem so they can shed more light on it.

Look at the blend door fix at the top of this forum. All of the answers are there. Good luck. Any questions, just ask.

If the a/c is hot but the max a/c is working then you definately have the blend door issue. So, to answer your question, yes it will take care of that as well.
