Dodge Ram vents only work on floor

11 posts in this topic

Just started doing this this spring. No matter where its set, only comes out on floor? Easy fix for a tool challanged person like myself?

Many of these are controlled by vacuum. If it is I would bet that there is a broken vacuum supply to the control head. Find the leak and you solved the problem (again if it is controlled by vacuum).

Yep, common problem. On the engine side of the firewall there is the control manifold for the actuator. Usually a hose just pops off.

These guys have you on the right track of checking for vacuum leaks in the hose going to the temp control head. I would check that first, then check for a bad vacuum motor for the mode door, then check to see if you can manually move the door, there maybe an obstruction, like a pen stuck in the door.

Anyone know what this looks like or about where it is?

The vacuum source originates on the passenger side of the intake manifold. You'll see a vacuum line about half way back. Follow that to the fire wall and make sure it is not leaking anywhere. I don't recall specifically where it comes through the fire wall but you'll be able to figure it out when you find it. If everything looks good in the engine compartment then you'll have to find it in the cabin under the dash or pull the controll head to see if there is vacuum at the connector.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
