Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
When winter rolled around this year, i noticed that had little heat. The air would warm up at higher rpms and at lower would blow cold. I flushed the heat core and replace the theromstata nd this seemed to help a little at high rpms, but would still blow cold at idle or lower rpms. After work, I started my ride home and did not have any heat. The tempature gage was a little high them normal, so once the car cooled down, I added some raidator fluid. The temp gage went all the way down to cold and i thought everything was ok. On my morning drive to work i again had no heat, but the temp gage was barely moving. The gage would not rise to the first line when driving and would rise to the line when idleing. Any thoughts?
Just finished fixing my daughters 1999 taurus heat. It would blow warm only when running down the road. At idle it blew cold. I started with replacing thermostat, and water pump because they are the easier fix. Still did not help. Then I replaced the heater core. A daunting job but not that hard to move the dash slighly out of the way to replace. There is a good write up at tarusclub.com. After that, heat was better but at idle, it would still blow cool sometimes. Researched and found answer. Park car on the steepest hill you can find with front of car up. Start car and take off reservoir cap. Let car warm up and keep rpms about 1500. After a while the fluid will come running out of the car and all over the place but it will bring air bubbles with it. Reduce rpm, add more fluid and repeat about 3 times. It will make a mess but after that, the heater works perfectly. We get heat long before the temp gage indicates any and it never blows cold unless you lower the temp.
