There is a small, white, control motor with a square plastic case that controls the blend damper. The motor always fails with the damper on the cold side. It is mounted on the front of the heater box directly behind the center stack (radio, heater controls) and is easily replaced by removing wiring plug and three mounting screws. Motor is about $60 from dealer.

How can i troubleshoot my heater core


It's just a simple small radiator. Coolant circulates through it, and the cores' fins give off heat that is picked up by the blower motor.
When the engine is at normal operating temperature, feel the two heater hoses. Both should be hot, verifying coolant is circulating through it. If only one is hot, the core may be plugged or have an air block. You can take off the core outlet hose and observe stream flow when engine is running and heater on high heat-flow should be slow but steady. The outlet hose will run from the firewall to the front of the engine into a fitting near the water pump. Some cars have a water valve in one of the hoses-make sure it is open, for coolant to circulate.

Blower works no heat on 1999 Ford Taurus


Check the heater hoses that go into the firewall to the heater core, they both should be hot,if only one is hot and the other isn't,then the core is plugged. Remove the hoses at the firewall, buy of hose the same diameter,buy enough length so that you can flush away from the engine compartment, install it on one of the heater core pipes,using a garden hose with a jet sprayer slowly blast water into the hose, until you see clean water coming out from the other pipe. Remove the hose and install it on the other pipe of the heater core and repeat the process,you may have to do it several times to completely unplug it. This is a typical problem with a 3.0, 2 valve taurus,coolant looks brown and rusty. The entire cooling system should be flushed, if it isn't the heater core will plug again.

My heater is not getting hot


Hello! There are only a few reasons for this awful event to occur in early December...Either Hot water isn't circulating through the heater core, the thermostat isn't opening or the door that directs heat is faulty...Is the temperature gauge showing normal? Next, is the upper radiator hose hot and hard? If the last two answers are yes then hot water is circulating...The unit that controls the doors ...ie...heat or defrost is called an Actuator...Also the lever that opens the heater may be at fault....LETS ELIMINATE...
Is there defroster heat? If no the heater core isn't opening ..If yes then the actuator is the culprit...You can check the heater by feeling of each of the two hoses that come through the firewall into the inside...If they are both hot then the heater core is open and functioning...If one is cold the heater isn't being opened by the temperature control..Or it is simply blocked with gunk....It's a 99 and getting old...I would suspect that IF the upper radiator hose is hot and hard and the temperature gauge is normal all is well with with most components and the next step is; Are both heater hoses hot...Your going to have to narrow this down for me to pinpoint the cause...See diagram below of the door actuator allowing defrost heat to be sent to the heater floor duct...
Send a comment with results and or observations...Remember"your my eyes and my hands"...Guru ...Saailer

Heater not getting hot but blower is working


Without more information, I can tell you that you have a problem with your heater core. Check coolant levels and make sure you aren't low on coolant. If that isn't an issue, make sure your heater core isn't bypassed. In Texas, I see them bypassed instead of repaired because it hardly ever gets cold here. You could also have a dirty heater core that isn't allowing the heat transfer. The only other thing it could be is an issue with the temperature blend door/actuator. If it isn't opening properly to allow the warm air from the heater core to enter the ventilation system, you won't get hot air.

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.

My 1999 ford windstar is only blowing cold air and no heat


possable problems:

1. coolant leak (level too low to fill heater core)
2. headgasket leak forcing the coolant out of the overflow.
3. stuck thermostat.
4. bad water pump. if the impelers are broken, coolant wont flow.
5. HVAC malfunction. system may think you selected cold or is unable to move diverter. maybe a fuse,solenoid or vaccum leak? (hvac controler uses vaccume controled soleniods)
6. airlock. if you have resently changed your coolant, you may need to repeatedly squeeze the heater core hose to help force out the air.

Heater vent won't switch from cold to hot. the heater core hoses are both hot and there is a dull thumping noise under the dash like a vacume switch is jammed


probably something feel down the defroster vent, have a helper check the vacuum motors as you switch from heat to cold, that should tell you wich one is jammed

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.

1999 Ford Windstar 3.8 no heat


If you have a knock or clicking noise behind the radio, it is the blend motor. The blend door is spring loaded and the gears in the blend motor are "stripped". The door is spring loaded so that the door is closed to the heater core. About 2 hours to replace and a lot of bending and stretching. You don't have to remove the dash, but all of the trim, radio, and controls will need to come out.

No heat


FROM LUSTYKID:

Check to make sure your control lever is not disconnected. First

Second:
Check the motor controlling the heat cold/hot DOOR window. Sounds like its in the cold position, thus you are not getting the heat. The door needs to move and shut off the cold intake so that the air is passing through the heater core.

The third item is, although you flush the heater core, it can still be clogged up, in which case you will have to replace it. You probably flush the tanks of the heater core. Think of it as a miniature radiator. The tanks get clean, but unless the hot water passes from one end to the other through the vanes there is not heat, because the heater core is not getting hot.
