1997 ford Taurus 3.0 6cyl. Has not heat


Empty cooling system and reverse flush the heater core with water hose till water comes out clear. Then reverse procedure till water is clear. Fill system with water and turn car on, while car is running open drain plug and continue to keep radiator full while draining it at the same time turn on your heater with heat on high and blower on high When water is clear flush system and wait for engine to cool down. Refill with antifreeze and turn engine on, check for leaks and to see if you have heat. If still no heat change heat core.Let me know how you make out.

We were told by Canadian Tire that the block heater is leaking.. we are confused if we should change the block heater or block core? when we had the water pump replaced we had heat for 20 minutes once all...


You block heater is a heater that should be screwed into the engine block.
Yes, it can leak.
You might need a new one, or you might need only to replace the gasket on the old one.
I'm in Florida, and I can't quite see the gasket from here!
Whenever you remove the block heater, or even when it leaks, you will get air into your cooling system, and then the heater will not work well, if at all.
Once you get the leaking block heater fixed, you will need to "bleed" the cooling system of that air.
How you do that is to run the engine at a medium speed with the car heater turned on full blast, and watch the coolant level in the radiator.
Be sure to keep the radiator full of coolant, and the water pump should pump the air out in about 5 minutes.
Be blessed.,

I have no heat I have a new thermostat and the heater core dosent leak.


When you say you have no heat is this referring to nothing when control is turned on? Does fan work? or you have no hot air at all.
If no fan could be a blown fuse [blower motor] thermostat could be installed incorrectly or faulty. Could be a faulty heater control valve if you have one not allowing hot water into heater core.

Heater leaking anti freeze inside car and making steam with heater off


Heater core is leaking, Turning heat off does not stop water flow through heater core, it only diverts air away from it.

Steam fills car when i turn on the rear heat liks water have just replaced the thermastate thinking that is why linking no sing of any leak when hood is raised around the hoses or raidiator


It sounds like the leak could be under the passenger side dashboard which is where the heater core is located. The heater core a small radiator that a fan blows air over to heat the inside of your car. Is the steam coming out of the vents when you turn the heat on?

I smell coolant when I turn on the heater in my 2001 Silverado. The heater will not get hot.


Your heater core is clogged, leaking, and/or going bad. If it was anything else in the cooling/heating system, you would not have the antifreeze odor. The heater core is located under the glove box. I hope this helps and good luck.

We have no heat or even air coming on in our 1996 plymoth neon there is also water leaking from under the passenger side dash board were the heater core is can you help please thanx


these guys are retarded, could be the fuse, could be the relay, could be the fan control unit, could be the resistor, could be the fan motor itself. if the heater core was leaking, you would still have heat, you would just smell coolant, if it was leaking enough to not have heat you would see it on your floorboard.

Thermostat?


It actually sounds to me like you're low on coolant. My Jeep leaks coolant and whenever it gets low the temp gauge will go real high and then drop, and the heater doesn't work well. This is because the cooling system of your car is supposed to be a closed system, full of coolant and no air. When coolant leaks out, the space it used to occupy is now occupied by air, which does not transfer heat well. When 'air' is passing through your cooling system, no heat can be transferred from your engine to the heater and radiator, resulting in a hot engine and no heat at the heater. Then when a pocket of water passes through the system, the temperature gauge quickly falls as the water absorbs the heat from the engine. The hot water that cools the engine is where the heater gets it's heat from as well, so when water passes through the heater core, the heater works, but when it's filled with air, it doesn't.

Hot water runs through the heater core regardless of whether or not your thermostat is open or closed. That's why your heater works in the winter even before the engine is at normal operating temperature. The fact that the heater stops working is a good sign that the thermostat is probably not the culprit.

As for the water pump. If the water pump was bad, your temp gauge would go into the red and stay there. Water pumps generally don't work intermittently. Either it's good and ot works, or it's bad and it doesn't.

However, if you are in fact low on water, as I suspect, it means you probably have a leak somewhere. The leak could be in the water pump housing gasket, so depending on where you take it for repairs, they may try to sell you a new water pump anyhow. So just beware of that.
