    take the heater hose off from the top of the matrix where it go's into the bulk head and run the engine until all the air is out of the system then put the hose back. but keep to[pping up the water level all the time. this will get all the trapped air out. which should be your problem

I take it the water level in the expansion tank is ok. You could have a blocked core in the heater. Also the heater could be leaking. You could try flushing the cooling system and checking for leaks and blockages.

I have a ford escort van and the heater has stpped blowing hot air, how do i fix this?


I assume the fan is working, as you are complaining just about hot air. If the engine reaches its normal temperature, ensure that the tap for the heater radiator is opening.

Problem with my heater on my escort van


try putting a 12v feed to the heater fan, if it works, you have a problem with your wiring, if it doesnt work, your blower is faulty.

hope this helps.

W plate Escort 55 van, heater only blows cold. Coolants ok, no leaks, tried new thermostat, no joy. Ideas?


hiya if you warm engine up to normal temp then check / feel the two heater hoses from engine up to the point of passing into the bulkhead ? if one hose is hot/warm? and the other is cold? the cold hose is the return from heater matrix(radiator) the problem you have is probably the heater coolant control valve failed? this is electric operated and not servicable but easy diy job to renew tou will find the plastic valve on the rear of bulknead behind where h/hoses pass thro you will have to remove the plastic grill below w/screen the h/hoses are connected to the valve along with elec plug connection pull off plug then with ignition and temp control valve on max check you have a live feed on wires to valve ? if no? check fuses if yes? then replace valve hope this helps it is not uncommon fault with these valves on escorts and fiestas

Escort van 55 blower heater does not blow at all


I had this problem on my '98 Ford Escort ZX2.
It did not need a new blower but a $15 Blower Motor Resistor.  The wires and connectors rusted out.

Heater only blows hot (well, warm) on full speed of fan


Replace the temp control on this car, it should be electrical control not cables.
