When i have my a/c on and when i accelerate a bit it starts blowing it to the dash instead of where i left it on my face. Simply don't know whats wrong with it.

5. You have a serious vacuum leak. The climate control is "Powered" by vacuum and its default position is the screen. Once you open the throttle vacuum drops off and the Climate Control will switch to the screen until you back off and vacuum builds back up.

A vacuum leak could be anywhere, inside the dash or near the motor, mine was at the heater tap.

There is also a one-way check valve near the MAP sensor on the vacuum hose that leads through the firewall into the dash. Remove it and test it by sucking through it. You should only be able to suck through from one end.

Under the left hand guard, at the rear is a vacuum canister. Check to see if the hose is still connected to it.


I'm going to try this, thanks for the heads up to the link.

Ok managed to find it upon hoisting the car up saw one of the lines was disconnected. I think this happened when i replaced the heater hose a while ago. It was pretty loose so i dabbed it with some silicone. And the car doesn't seem to have this prob anymore now.
See this thread of what i had to replace:
