Question about Mitsubishi Outlander

Why center AC vents blocked? all others fine

Mitsubishi Outlander 2011. AC is working well, heating working well. Air is coming out from all vents except front panel center vents. The Air Flow switch/knob however is not responding to the position it is put; i.E. If put on the position for front panel air flow, air comes out full on the leg and windshield.

SOURCE: front panel temperature control switch

Very likely the blend door is broken. This door is mounted beside the heater core, blends cool air with hot depending on the position of the door. At the bottom of the door at the hinge point, there is a gear and coupling driven by an electric motor to position the door. The coupling is a drive much like a square drive ratchet and socket made of plastic and often cracks allowing the drive to turn without changing the door position. I've heard you can drill through the outer housing and put a screw in the door through the drive gear, but you would have to know your way around this area well.
I repaired mine by replacing the blend door, a big job at best. The entire dashboard must come out to access the top of the heater core housing which must be removed.

SOURCE: No dashboard heat output

The climate control was poorly designed on these cars.

There is only heat on the floor and defrost settings, due to the layout of the ductwork.

SOURCE: Very low air flow through vents despite the fan working well

It is very likely that the Air conditioner evaporator core is restricted due to leaves or some other object may be blocking air flow like a plastic bag, does it do this on both outside air and recirculation setting?

You probably have a vacuum leak on the passenger side. its a small plastic hose some times they come unpluged from the engine. or brake.

SOURCE: HVAC vent selector does not function. Air flow is

THe blend door seems to be stuck. When you change settings from defrost to floor air or, vent, the blend door opens and closes directing the air to the place you want it to go to. I have had some success spraying a lubricating oil such as WD40 under the dash on the blend door. You need to get under the dash with a flashlight to locate it. It looks like a flap. Spray it with a couple of shots of the WD40. Go easy on the spraying as you may be inhaling the fumes. Keep the doors and windows open to minimize the fumes. Wait about 1/2 hour and try the A/C functions. (defrost, floor, vent air)

I have a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ and my question involves the heating/ AC unit. The air flow seems to be very strong through the Defroster but for the dash vents and the floor it seems to be much s


Defrost has been stronger on all types. Just the way plenums are made. Clear that wind shield first. As long as you have plenty of heat to keep the cabin area warm to hot, it's OK. I wouldn't woory about it.

Transmission over temp light comes on. transmission works fine but once went into limp mode


have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal faults. Any high pressure leaks will cause heat. check the filter and while the pan is off adjust the bands and clutch packs . Check the radiator cores are not blocked as engine temperature will affect the transmission oil temperature . check oil level as extra oil will cause frothing and over heating.

Wont switch off defrost vent


This is only a guess but I bet it is literally freezing in position from moisture. Look for a spot where outside air is getting into the venting or even dripping water.

I have a mitsubishi lancer ck2 1998 model no air comes out of the center vents, the air condition works I get air coming out of the side vents what may be the reason for no air coming through the center...


Could be a blend door problem. The blend doors under the dash direct air thru the heater core and the vents.
Are you sure the center vent is not blocked off ?

Blower seems fine but there is no hot air coming from the vents.


after the car is warmed up, check the two heater hoses coming out of the firewall-both should be hot or rather warm. if not prob is usually the thermostat... if t only one of the hoses is hot and the other is cold, you need to look for a faulty vacuum control switch.

04 mitsubishi outlander ac is not working


What to you mean not working?

a) Air blows but is not cool.
If this is the case, suspect refrigerant leak. Do not operate AC untill it is checked fully. Operating AC with freon leak may lead to compressor failure and expensive replacement.

b) No air blows at all.
If this is the case, suspect blown fuse or burned blower motor. Sometimes is just a fuse or may have a malfunctioning resistor (blower motor works only at full speed).

Little air coming out the vents


is the fan motor working at full speed
check for blocked cabin air filter
the vacuum only works the vent controls and as you can feel the changes of the vents , it is not vacuum
