Default YYC Car Mechanic? (Ford)

Do we have a resident CP mechanic?

A coworker is having a weird issue with her Ford where it blows cold air out of the driver side vents and hot air out of the passenger.

Assuming you don't mean a mechanic at the airport ( ) I've seen this before in our GMC Acadia. Does she have climate control with dual zones (one for drivers side and one for passengers)? Our issue was the mechanism that open/closed the airflow to each side failed so the valve was blocking the flow of air to one side of the vehicle. Actually we had flow to both sides, it was just coming from two sources - heat to one side, cold to the other.

I guess that won't help your friend other than perhaps as confirmation or understanding of the issue when she does take it in. Unless you or someone she knows are handy and can make the fix. It wasn't difficult in our Acadia, i was able to replace the part myself.

What part of town is she in? I'm not a mechanic but would recommend where I take my vehicles.

Thanks. I've changed the title for less confusion too. I believe she's in the NW.

If she decides to take it to a mechanic, I've heard nothing but great things about Knibbe Automotive in Crowfoot. I've decided to take my Sierra there for some work and will let you know how that goes.

I had the exact same problem with an older Subaru- Half the heater core was plugged and it required a good flush

+1 for Knibbe. They treated us amazingly and made a great first impression.

+1 here. I've had work done there in the past too. Don't use them much anymore but only because the location isn't convenient for us now.
