Question about Ford Taurus
MY HEATER WORKS WHEN IT IS 20 OR ABOVE BELOW IT DOES NOT RUN BUT AS SOON HAS IT GET WARMER IT RUNS. HELP
Are you saying that the heater motor e.g. the fan is not working for there is no warmth coming from the heater.A lot of engines do not generate enough heat to work the heater at such a low temperature

you need to have the engine coolant switch
checked,since the computers rely solely on sensors,the ect tells the computer how cold or hot it is so the
computer will make it a rich or lean mixture to start the engine,if it tells the
computer that it is 75 degrees the computer will lean the mixture like starting
a car in the winter without a choke.

This could be a few different problems. I would recommend taking it in and having the antifreeze checked to see if it is of a sufficient mix to keep it from freezing. Sometimes the antifreeze will be to thin to keep it from freezing and it will start to freeze in the heater core. If this is the case, the vehicle may not run long enough to thaw out the antifreeze in the heater core to generate heat. Another possibility is that the thermostat is stuck in an open or partially open position not allowing the engine to reach a high enough temperature to generate heat through the heater core. The last possibility is that there is a blockage in the heater core not allowing the hot antifreeze to pass through the heater core thereby reducing the amount of heat drawn off of the heater core. These are but a few of the more simple problems but any of them should be treated by a licensed mechanic.

Testimonial: "helpful.tested all suggested solutions but did not change thermostat. coolant level and protection is good, heater core,upper and lower rad hoses hot"
these are something to check coolant temperature sensor,defective spark plugs,or a plug fuel filter give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
