    If the thermostat is the problem the Check Engine light would be on in the dash is it?

    Do not just blindly change the thermostat it is likely no the problem.

    no , what you can do this start the car and let it run for a few minutes,and look in the back on the motor there are 2hoses going to the heater core see if they hot. both should be hot.. there can be a number of things to be the cause of no heater

It is on the left side of the motor on top. look at the radiator there is a hose on top follow that to the motor,and there is a outlet with 2 10mm bolts it is in there

SOURCE: heater doesn't blow warm air. Not the thermostat

Sounds like either the valve which lets water into the heater core is not working properly or the vacuum operated door which directs blower motor air over the heater core is not opening, Could be a vacuum hose loose or it has a hole in it.

If you want to further discuss, let me know,

SOURCE: my heater stoped blowing hot air.antifreeze level

If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox and Pontiac Torrent,

SOURCE: My 1999 Ford Windstar, the heater is Not blowing

the thermostat is in the thermostat housing. that is the end part of the upper radiator hose, where it connects to the engine. assuming the car is otherwise running OK it is not your problem, replacing it is a waste of your time. most likely the heater core is shot, that is where you should be looking. it sits within the heater box which is most likely behind the dash under the glove box, over the passenger footwell.

Defroster fan blows but no hot air comes out


If the heat blows hot, the defrost should also. If the heat does not blow hot air, it could be your thermostat, your heater core valve, or the heater core itself. with the vehicle being a 2002, the heater core is the least likely.

1999 Ford Taurus, no heat. Air comes thru all vents but blows cold air like the ac is on. Replaced thermostat twice, flushed heater core twice, still ice cold air. Help?


Try checking the two pipes that go into and come out of the heater matrix, is one of them hot? if it is there is an air lock within the matrix, Also is the thermostat opening fully? Sorry i know you said you have changed it twice already but take it out check settings when it should open and close, then boil some water and test the thermostat

Bought son 98 Taurus, blasts cold a/c air and defroster air blows, but it won't blow warm air-no heater. can't see out of windshield with the morning sun.Husband flushed antifreeze and changed thermostat....


feel the two hoses going into and out of the heater core. they both should be hot. if one is cold the heater core is likely plugged. you can try flushing it out to see if you can restore flow to the heater core. if they are both hot the thermostat may be sticking open tho you should have a limited amount of heat. also confirm that the vents are operating as they should be.
