why? what is the job, "diagnosis, put back one missing:"/? what?
Connie, only one book shows that ,its called the FSM
the factory service manual, and is online at ford (sold)
and shown on alldata.com log in and read it.
please post the job< we can;t help much with out that
and can not post all 50 pages in the HVAC chapter here.

diagnosis takes these facts:
there are 3 kinds. on all car,s some mix up all 3kinds.
cable (cave man simple) you pull handle, and cable moves and door opens (DAMPER BLEND OR WHATEVER)
VACUUM SYStems, you move the knob, vacuum is gated tot he hose the hose goes to the damper servo and it moves and again the door opens.
last is damper motors.
these are vary hard to test, because no 2 are the same.
each year uses different motors and the tests are unique.,
on my car, the only what to test them is with a factory scan tool.
on my other car, the FSM shows how to hot wire the motors
to test them, so back to square one,, the FSm.

alldata.com google it, its #1 , $15

helm $10

there is never a reason to guess, the books are all online
just login and read.

The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve will be a solenoid mounted on the side of the throttle body. The throttle body is the butterfly valve that your throttle cable goes to. Air goes through the throttle body from your air filter.

Maybe the cap was just not put on all the way

Then the Evap Monitor ran & did not find any faults

That monitor is the last to run & only does so every few days

Your timing was just when you needed it to run

There are three bolts that hold it on. PLus the wiring. The triangle above the door panel pops loose, behind the mirror bracket. Be careful, it has a tab that goes down behind the door panel. Pop it loose, you can pull it down far enough to access the 10mm nuts.

If defrost is on that means AC cycles to remove humidity. Does this also occur when ac is running set at very near outside temp so it cycles? Could be the throttle positioning sensor (TPS) acting up.

look on the back of the fuse box cover. The diagram is on it. Look for a horn symbol.

Hello friend.
Steam from engine is usually blown head gasket or hairline fracture of piston liner letting water go where it should not and causing boiling of the water.. This will give similar problems.
The piston liner problem got me going once , Absolutly fine when engine idling for HOURS but when put under load and driven , the Temp FLEW up and steam came out,. Needs a workshop or good DIY Mechanic to take a look.at the engine. Probably nothing to do with AirCon.
