    i watched a few videos to be sure and your gonna need to check your heating coil. i definitely would before replacing the whole thing. your heating coil works the same way your radiator does distrubeting hot water into heat. it's located behind the dash probably to the left or right behind it. most likely you have build up in the receiver end and just needs to be cleaned out, a new one will only run about 35$. if your gonna change it i can send you a video on how to do it.

Seems like I have no power to the heater..

could be the connection at the blower motor. inspect the contacts and post your findings. the blower motor may be going bad (high resistance) this may burn up the terminals at the connection or inside the motor itself

1995 Oldsmobile Aurora will start sometimes and other times it won't, I replaced the starter and still the same.

If the engine cranks but won't start, the battery and starter are out of the picture.
When it won't start, someone will need to check fuel pressure and for spark at the plugs to proceed.

No heat changed thermostat and just pulled the heater core which seems fine water from kitchen faucet flows thru both ways but cant find any control valve in the heater hoses to see if it is working

firs check both heater hoses are hot to the heater core after it is warmed up. If they are hot the heat cool door is not moving make sure the linkage for the actuator door is hooked up. If that isnt working test the module that moves it.If it is manually or vaccum operated there will be a heater valve inline the heater core hose. Make sure your vaccumm is supplied to the heater box from the engine. If it is staying on defrost you may be missing vaccum supply to the heater control. If it is electronically controlled the door actuator module is bad or not getting power. Sometimes the heater hand controls are the problem. sometimes the dash control separates and gives a vaccum leak.

Heater motor only works sometimes on 2000 towncar

you need to test for power at the heater motor when it doesn't work there is a heater resitor that aslo needs to be tested if you have power to blower motor and it is still not working the motor is bad. if no power go to resistor it is located in the heater box behind right side valve cover. test for power at the plug it will move from pin to pin depending on the heater speed setting if you have no power at the resistor then suspect a faulty heater module. if you need anything else let me know.

F150 ignition (won't Start)

If it turns over but just won't fire and the timing sounds fine when it does run you might consider your ignition switch.  Does it sound like it wants to fire but only just when you let go of the key?
