Question about 1998 Mercury Villager
If you replaced the thermostat, you have an air bubble trapped in the engine. So, you don't have any coolant running through the heater core, therefore no heat.
sometimes hard to "burp" air bubble. Try this. Park park facing uphill and jack up front of car too. You want to get radiator opening higher than top of engine. Then remvoe radiator cap (cold engine), fill radiator, then fill coolant reservoir to full point. Install radiator cap but leave it loose so air can escape. Start engine until upper radiator hose going into radiator is hot. This should burp air. Repeat a few times while adding coolant mix (50/50 antifreeze) to keep radiator full. Be careful not to remove radiator cap when engine is hot.
lwt us know how ou make out. There is a more complicated procedure but you need tools and knowledge of where air bleed is on top of engine
