This is a heater vent motor.

About $84.00 from dealer, pain in the *** to change behind the radio, but worth doing it yourself.

95 windstar no heat, changed thermostat still no heat

If you're sure the thermostat is good and your coolant level is good and there's still no heat see if you can identify the two hoses that run to your heater core. Both hoses should be hot when the engine is up to temperature. If one or the other is cold there is a blockage somewhere preventing the coolant from flowing. If both are hot you know it is circulating but there may be a problem on the mechanical end if things...blend door, heater control valve, etc. Occasionally there may be trapped air in a system....try parking and running it on a ramp, steep hill....some way to get the vehicle running on varying angles to aid in releasing any air pockets. This is a bit of a long shot but ya never know and it'll cost you nothing if all else fails.
Take care.

My 1999 Ford Windstar, the heater is Not blowing Hot air, the Fan is working. Where is the Thermostat located??

the thermostat is in the thermostat housing. that is the end part of the upper radiator hose, where it connects to the engine. assuming the car is otherwise running OK it is not your problem, replacing it is a waste of your time. most likely the heater core is shot, that is where you should be looking. it sits within the heater box which is most likely behind the dash under the glove box, over the passenger footwell.

1999 ford windstar heater lever will not turn on front heat

Check on the heater control valve. It is probably close to the firewall behind the engine. There will be coolant lines attached to it. This valve should have an arm on it that opens and closes a valve inside, either shutting off or allowing hot coolant to flow into the heater core. The arm should be attached to a cable coming from inside the car. See if the arm moves when you move the heat temperature level inside the car.

2003 winstar no heat

Check the operation of the temperature control door. It is located in the center of the dash behind the radio. Look up between the gas pedal and heater case. It is white in color Move the temp knob while watching the actuator. If it is clicking it is bad. Good luck.

No heat coming from heater

If your coolant level isn't too low, the valve that controls circulation through the heater core may be inoperative. You should also check coolant temperature if you have no actual gauge (idiot light instead) to ensure that the engine is reaching operating temperature. You can also just touch the radiator after using the vehicle to see it it is hot. If the thermostat is stuck open, the engine may be running cold which will also reduce your MPG.

Clicking sound

There is an actuator motor that controls the heater door, when these go bad they make a clicking noise. If the clicking stops or pauses when you change the heat from hot to cold the actuator needs to be replaced. There is no cable on the temp control it is electrical.
