What temprature did you get on temprature gauge ? When you say the heater core , i think on the heater register som are under the dash . The water flow are controled with a tap , when you have the control on warm the heated water flow , when the control on cold , the tap is closed and now water flow. It can bee the wired to the tap som are loose . You must look up under the dash and se if you see the wire.
The are 2 hoses tho the heater , and they go inside from the engine in to the heater. Look for the hose , you find them inside the engine rom and they go inside the car.
If you start the car and run it warm , then you put the heater control on warm. Then you try to feal if the hose som go to the heater are warm, if only one are warm the fault are the tap. And then you must look under the dashboard and lokate the tap.
Hoope this tips could help you

No heat engine warm fan works on all levels directional control (defrost@floor) stuck on cold. ?temp control .


your heater core could be plugged if your anti-freeze color is a brownish colour , most likely your heater core is plugged also when you move the direction for heat control can you hear the blendoor move if you can then again your heater core may be plugged and if it is plugged flushing most likely wont fix it, if you don't hear the blendoor motor move the blendoor motor or the door may be damaged

Cannot get hot heat


Alternative 1: Blend Door actuator problem

There is a TSB out on this problem. If the thermostat and everything else is good, you may have a problem with the Stratification (Secondary) Temperature Blend Door. This door is now available separately versus replacing the whole case assembly. The instrument panel needs to come off to gain access to it and this might be a job best done by a Ford Dealer.
If you think you might want to give it a shot yourself, you can get a copy of the TSB at the Ford Dealer. It is TSB number 02-23-6 dated 11/25/02. It has the repair procedure and a list of parts needed.

Alternative 2: Heater Core needs to be flushed

Check heater core hoses. If both are hot, not enough heat inside, suspect blend door actuator.
If one hose hot and the other warm or cold, the heater core need to be flushed (very common),

2002 Ford Taurus has no heat


Look for a blocked heater hose (kinked, pinched, or collapsed), or a valve (either electrically or vacuum controlled) in the line that isn't opening. Feel both hoses when the engine is hot and set for heat. One should be hot and the other cooler when operating normally. If both are cool, then something is blocking water flow through the heater core.
