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.

Engine tepmrature goes up or down when i turn on the heater


That is pretty much normal, the heater blower fan acts like the radiator does and helps cool the water passing through it by extracting the heat from it. then once the car inside temp warms up it goes back to normal. Nothing to worry about.

Heater not working in extreme cold weather because fan wont shut off. fan has been replace and the computer has been checked. nobody knows what is wrong


I'm making some assumptions, here.. I've been told I make too many assumptions... but, I'm assuming that you're talking about the engine cooling fan.. If I'm correct in this assumption, my guess is that you've not taken the vehicle to a good, reputable mechanic or repair shop. There are several reasons that an engine fan would not turn off, and each reason would have to come from a qualified mechanic. For example, there is a sending unit for the air conditioning system that might cause continuous running... or a sending unit in the air conditioning system that could cause the same thing. To complicate that issue, quite likely your air conditioning system purposely kicks on the engine fan any time you run your defroster. Also, your inside heater should function correctly, regardless of the engine fan running continuously. If I'm wrong on that score, then your engine has a thermostat problem "to boot"... which, by itself, could cause poor heating of the inside of the vehicle. NOW, backing up a little, if you so happen to be talking about the fan INSIDE the vehicle that is part of your heating OR air conditioning, we have a little different matter on our hands... First, some vehicles legitimately have a fan running on slow speed at ALL times.. for continuous air circulation purposes (sometimes, you can't actually hear this). Also, I might add that THIS fan running all the time should not be a problem for the heater to work properly.

Drained radiator added prestone Radiator flush refilled and started overheating, drained radiator replaced thermostat and now I get no heat from heater,Radiator water is hot


disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

When I turn the heater on, the motor sounds like it wants to turn but there isn't any heat coming out


the fan will run whether or not the heater core is getting warm, it does not care. you can hear the fan run, sounds like a fan running. if there is air coming out the vents and you hear the fan running, then the problem lies with the heater core.

Engine is over heating unless you turn on defroster, then the fans come on , however interior temp switch , appears not to be working, because it continues to blow cold air into the vehicle,


May just be low coolant level. Remove rad cap, or if none, coolant return bottle cap, and start engine and run heater while doing this. Now pay attention to coolant level and add as needed to top up the system. Let it run with cap off until rad fan comes on and off, 2 or 3 times and keep adding coolant if level goes down. Keep an eye on temperature gauge while doing this. It almost sounds like your coolant got low, or is low, and your heater has an airlock. Once coolant circulates back through heater and level is correct, see what happens.

your electric cooling fan is not switching on that is either 1. you fan is bad which you can test jumping a hot wire to the pos side of the fan if it works then exclude it. 2. your fan works on a ground system there is a coolant fan switch in the head that can cause no fans, and the last 3. nfan relay or fuse bad

did you replace the heater core? Does your heater work when you turn it on full, with fan. What I'm getting at is your control to the heater stuck open an blocked. Also believe it or not if your heater is fully functioning you can cool your engine somewhat by turning the heat on inside the car, thus increasing the surface area for heat dissipation. Try a back flush of your entire cooling system.
