    I'm not sure on the specifics of a 98, but a lot of them are vacuum controlled. When the vacuum actuator goes out the blendor does not move and there is no mix of hot and cold. it will default to the hot position. Check the actuator and vacuum lines. Hope this helps!:salute:
  3. can you get it to switch from vent to the floor?
