Heater quits in 4x4

2003 F350 6L My heater starts blowing cold air everytime i put my truck in 4 wheel drive, when i take it out of 4x4 it starts blowing hot air again. Could this be due to a vacuum leak in the hubs?

Yes, you have the dash mounted 4x4 shift right? Have you rebuilt anything in the wheel hubs lately? Check the lines to the hubs as well. Sounds like you have a nasty leak.

Yes its dash mounted shift. Thinking it must be the yellow O rings in the hub assembly but is there and easy way to check? I haven't done any work to it since about april when i changed one of the hub assembly's.

There is the smaller o-ring around the outer hub, the big o-ring around the hub, and the axle seal that can cause vacuum leaks. My vacuum leak was coming from not replacing the o-ring on the outer hub when I did my ball joints. i could hear a hissing when i turned the key on the truck and only got air from the defrost. To stop it temporarily I packed the whole area where the ring seats with grease and put the outer hub back in. That would stay until the grease dried out, so I bought a new one and no problems. So if you didn't replace those o-rings when you did your hub or removed the axle for some reason without replacing the axle seal those are places to look
