Question about 1991 Ford Escort
1991 ford escort 1.9 engine. I changed the thermostat and still have no heat. The temp guage does not go past "C". I will get heat very rarely and the temp guage will work then. If I shut the car off, I have no heat again. Any ideas that I can try without pulling the heater core? Is there a way to test the heater core without pulling it out?? Please help since I don't even have defrost and it is snowing!!!!
Remove the heater core lines the two hoses that go to the heater core, take a splice tube either metal our plastic your part store will have either one. take the splice tube and install it in one of the lines add some hose to that tube make the hose long enough to run out side of the engine compartment and on to the ground. take the other hose and install a flushing tee, hook up to a garden hose and trun the water on . what you are trying to do is flush the heater core , you are also looking for blockage off the heater core, if you little to no flow i would suggest replaceing the heater core
