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

I have a 2001 mercury villager and about two weeks ago, the engine services light comes on. My heater does not get hot even when the temperature is half way up. Now, my oil light comes on and I check


Did you check your coolant level? If it gets low you won't get heat. Is the temperature getting completely up to the normal operating range? If the thermostat sticks open your engine won't get to normal range and you won't have good heat.

I have a 1996 mercury villager that's over


1) low water in the overflow canister. always add water/antifreeze there not directly in the radiator. 2) does the fan at the radiator turn or is running when engine is warmed up?
3) if so then check you belts on your engine? are you missing any?
4) could be bad water pump. do you or have you seen small drops of water coming from the engine area other than the radiator? and other than the A/C unit when car is turned off?
5) when checking fan/s you most like have two fans. One for normal and two come on if you are using air conditioner. make sure both fans are working with A/C on. That should do it.

Heating system take time to warm up


either air trapped in the system, (most likely) or theromstat needs replacing. Depends on what temp gage reads.

My 94 Merc Villager has been overheating and I have no heat coming through heater. I had the system flushed, thermostat changed. Water pump checked okay. Mechanic says engine is the problem and needs...


You have air trapped in the engine and heater system. very common on today's engines. You can try burping it yourself, or go to a shop that can flus your cooling system for $60 and refill using a vacuum system that purges all air by sucking it out. Then you have to keep reservoir full to keep it from sucking air back in. Temp gauge should read on the "A" in normal on the gage.

go here and read files on how to do yourself. it's hard to do.

Overheating


you have air trapped in the system. very hard to "BURP AIR"

park uphill on ramps if possible. With cold engine, leave radiator cap loose and fill radiator and reservoir. run engine until thermostat opens. squeeze upper radiator hose with hand. SHould be hot. Have heater on hot and blower on too. Repeat as necessary. May take several attempts.

No heat in 97 mercury villager


your heater core may be getting blocked up, or the thermostat may be stuck open at times. you have a few options here, option 1 and 2 cost about the same, option 1: have the thermostat replaced just so you know its working properly, a 97 will most likely not have a telltale way of knowing if the thermostat is bad or going bad. option 2. have the cooling system flushed at a shop. this will try to clear out and debris in the cooling system that may be blocking passages or the heater core. option 3 is the most expensive. have the heater core replaced, the heater core is what provides heat to the hvac system in the dash. a few other things to check would be vacuum lines/actuator/temperature door on your hvac system.

Engine Overheats Mercury Villager GS 1997 6 Cyl


Most likely a sticky thermostat, what is happening is that it's staying closed most of the time causing the engine to over heat, eventually it will open allowing the fluid to circulate and cool down from the radiator. I suggest changing the thermostat rather quickly or you could do damage.
There are two hoses coming from the radiator, the thermostat is located on the top hose where it seats on the motor. Usually fairly easy to change only a few bolts, but you will have to drain most of the fluid from the radiator. I also recommend getting some 'indian head' gasket sealer and apply to the motor side of the gasket, not the side that seats onto the thermostat.
