02 Ford Explorer Heat Blend Door Actuator Simple Fix - No Tools Needed
This is a 02 Ford Explorer that has a broken and worn heat blend door
actuator. The labor at a dealership with parts is approx $700-800 if you
take it to the pros, The cost of the part is approx $65.00 if you want to
do it yourself, or you can give this a try and save even more.
The part I will be referring to later in the video is a plastic flap, which
is approximately 3" long and is located almost directly behind the wires
you see in the video along the edge of the wall compartment. It needs to
be pushed down, and you will hear it as it reaches the correct position.
Once you locate this, it will only take a few seconds to change in the
The blend door will easily work with the air condition control knobs, but
once you switch it to cold air, you will need to switch this back manually
as in the video.
Hope this tip helps.

Flat blade screw driver
Phillips screw driver
8mm socket and short extention
Needle nose pliers
1. Disconnect the positive battery terminal using the 8mm socket. Wait at
least 30 minutes to de-energize the airbag transister to avoid accidental
2. Remove the round plastic plugs on each side of the steering wheel with a
3. Once you have the plugs removed you will see a bolt on each side of the
steering wheel. Use the 8mm socket and remove the two bolts. These bolts
hold the air bag in. Pull the air bag out and just set it on top of your
steering wheel. You will have just enough wire to do that.
4. Now that every thing is in the open, use the phillips screw driver to
remove the screws that hold the cruise control switches on. Each switch is
held on with 2 phillips screws. Once the switches are removed, unplug the
old harness from the switches. They are a tight fit but just pull straight
out using your needle nose pliers. Do NOT pull on the wires! Hold the
switch and pull on the harness plug connector. You also need to remove the
new harness plug from your new switches. Then insert the new switch onto
the existing harness plug.
5. Screw the new switches into place, and put the airbag back in place,
tighten the bolts on the side in place, and replace the plastic caps.
Approximate time: 15-20 minutes.

video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start'
situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch

Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts
One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle
(DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this
procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in
order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this
procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle.
If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my

How to clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac)
*** PLEASE READ ***
In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and
replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l
ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle.
* * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * *
The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle
A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm
performance and cause rough engine operation.
When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to
properly seal the connection to the intake.
GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be
cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket
and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak.
The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned
because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for
a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has
some miles on it.
