    I have no heat, everything has been checked, new thermostat, coolant has been replaced the only thing left is the heater core I, think. My question is do I have to have the AC discharged to replace the heater core?

1997 ford explorer... My heater is only blowing cold air. The heater core and tubes get warm to hot, the temp control knob works. Is there any time of short term quick fix i can do till i have the money to...

If the thermostat is not opening (coolant circulating) and getting coolant through the inlet hose of the heater core you will not get any heat. If the thermostat is working then the heater core is clogged. Some folks take the heater inlet and outlet hose off and flush each end with a garden hose, got to give it enough pressure to unclog the core.

2005 ford explorer heat dosnt work

pull back the carpet on the passenger side and check for moisture, if it is wet your heatercore is bad. if no moisture and both hoses going to your heater core are hot it is possible the cable operated door is failing to open. this link should help in both cases

Just purchases a 1997 Ford Explorer AWD V8 and the heater isn't working. Put anti-freeze in it last night and it started to get warm. No such luck this morning, it's blowing cold air. The outside...

OK, recheck the anti-freeze level and fill if necessary. There may be a leak in the system.
If it is filled up to capacity (also check that the upper radiator hose is full of fluid by squeezing), then the next thing to check is the two heater hoses that enter the firewall for the heater core. If they aren't getting hot at normal operating temperature, the heater core is plugged up and will have to be flushed or replaced.

If the heater core hoses are hot, then a blend door problem exists for shuttling hot air from the heater core to the interior of the vehicle.

Good luck on this repair.

Can not turn on my explorer

you may have abad hot /cold blend door acuator.its bolted to air box. also make sure both heater hoses going to heater core are hot,if only one is hot and the other is luke warm or cold then you may have a clogged heater core,remove hoses (@ core) and flush with water hose go both ways a couple of times. good luck hope this helps.

My 1997 ford explorer eddie baure will not heat but ac works

either the heater core is stopped up or the blend door is stuck turned to cool. the blend door motor's on these are know to go out. so i'd start with that. its under the dash in the middle and usually kinda tough to find. itll be a square plastic box about 2 or 3 inches wide and the same tall with an electrical connector on it bolted to the heater case. when you're turning the temp from cool to hot the blend door isnt turning i'd say

if the heater hoses going in and out of the heater core are hot, then your temp blend door is not moving to allow heat from the heater core into the car. either the temp knob or blend door motor is bad. some are vacuum, some are electric.

Heat when the fan blow at 2 but cold if the fan is at 3 speed

1st make sure the heated core is getting hot, do this by feeling the hoses under the hood that supply hot coolant to the core, if the inlet and outlet are hot then the core has circulation and is not the problem, check this and let me know what you find.
