Problem is most likely the water pump.Have seen several of these doing this on the 5.4L. Impeller fins were damaged on the ones that I have seen.

SOURCE: Radiator blockage?
I believe you have a head gasket blown or a cracked head. When you start it up COLD with the cap off, it would push water out immediately. Fill it with plain water and try this. It might not be a bad idea to perform a pressure test too. Also check for antifreeze in the oil. It will get milky looking and might even be over full. If this happens after warm-up, you may just have a plugged radiator. Have it professionally cleaned. The water pump vanes could also possibly be corroded off and it's not effectively displacing coolant. Hope this helps.

This is a common problem, Ford garage will charge you about 1000.00 to fix it. It's an all day job for someone who knows what they're doing. I wouldn't recommend this if you aren't familiar with cars. If you still want to go at it, get a book for your car, you will like that much better. It has pictures!

Testimonial: "Rick here:This is what I thought.We removed it and tied it open.Still no heat.160 going in and 157 coming out.Something is screwy in the box.Any ideas"
SOURCE: heater blows cold
If no coolant flowing through the heater core then ther is no heat. There are 2 possible root causes needed to check out: 1- THE VALVE TO CONTROL THE COOLANT FLOWING TO THE HEATER CORE IS NOT OPENING AS DESIRED. 2- THE HEATER CORE GOT CLOGGED UP AND NEED TO BE FLUSHED.
