2004 Ford Explorer Blend Door Fun

I had the dreaded clicking and couldn’t switch to heat so I watched a video and replaced the blend door actuator. Now when I switch to heat I can feel a heat differential but I would describe the air as warm not hot.

I seem to remember this car getting too hot with the heat on so I am concerned something is wrong. It has been several years wit no heat but I am tired of feeling like a popsicle in the winter.

  1. Is it possible the blend door is partially switched? I don’t even know if that is a thing.
  2. Is it possibly a second issue? I have been a long time with no heat. What are some things I can check?

It is definitely heating its just not as much heat as I’d like or remember.
