2001 F-350 V10 4 door 8 ft bed. Heating and cooling works. When in park, options for heat or air to blow out of floor, dash, windshield defrost vents all correctly. When I start driving it, regardless of what the dial is set to ( floor, dash vents, etc), air or heat only comes out of windshield defrost vents. Seems like a vacuum problem. Any ideas?

No heat Suddenly the heater isn't. Used to warm up and defrost the windows in 5 minutes, now nothing. On the last highway drive it started out with heat, then it quit and while driving it came back on for the last 10 miles. Since then nothing. The auto fan comes on and turns the speed down if it's a warm enough day. There is no fan at all on the floor setting for the heater either, it only works on mix and defrost. And is there a way (when the heater is working again) to bypass the temp. control

Just got heater core replaced and now have no heat from heater or defrost. Fans work, just don't blow anything beyond "cool". The heat in my car is coming and going. I want to know how to fix this? How do I change my thermostat and where is it located? It only blows some hot air when I have it turned on to the vent button but when I have it on defrost or the floor it blows cold air.

My 2004 Chrysler Sebring heater works about 30% of the time. The other 70% it blows cool/cold air. Also without my touching the dials will change from floor to defrost on its own quite often.
