Blower motor location and installation on 73 ford gran torino
New heater core installed two weeks ago. Now it won't blow heat! There's some heat radiating from defrost area but nothing blowing from anywhere- Heat or defrost! Don't know location of blower motor or how to replace.
Re: Blower motor location and installation on 73 ford...
It's less than foot from the heater core. I would guess that either the damper doors are not on correctly or the vent hoses are not hooked up. Can you hear the blower motor running? Maybe they didn't hook the motor back up when they replaced the heater core. It takes a ground and a hot wire.I can't remember where it's at but it may be part of the same unit. Did you check the fuse?

if u flushed heater core n both hoses to heater are hot, then more than likely the blender door is not allowing heat to enter the inside of car...a lotta times itz located behind glove box where u can chek it...dependz on the car...
Nothing in or around the heater core could make a noise. The core is just a small radiator with coolant circulating through it. And if you feel both heater hoses, and both are hot on a warmed up engine, then coolant is circulating through the core and the heat should be working. There must be a door in the heater case that is not letting heat come out.
The noise may be from the blower motor and its plastic fan assembly. It should be pretty easy to take out the blower motor and check for any obstruction.
so either the blower motor isn't blowing or its just blowing cold air-always start with fuses-then check for 12v at the blower motor-use a volt ohm meter- if you have 12v then the blower motor is bad-if there is no warm air blowing out-look for the water valve that lets the hot water into the heater core-its on the small hose going back to the heater core-make sure its operating-cheers Denny
I dont know what these other guys are saying..I think they snif the glue!!! YOUR BLOWER FAN ASSEMBLY CAN EASILY BE REMOVED !!
1. Remove the wire
2.Find the "tab on the housing and pull it down while rotating the fan housing counter clockwise. This will remove the fan assembly. Plage 12 volts on the contacts to test the motor. If it works then the resister pack is blown. On the fan housing (near firewall ) you will see a plug going into a square looking box with a screw in it. Remove the wire then remove the screw to remove the resistor pack.. A new resistor pack is around 20 dollars at a ford dealer. Hope thie "FREE" info helps!
The problem is A small device that is called A (blend door actuator )it is located on side of heater core under the dash its A small white box with wires coming out of it .it opens the valve so coolant can run through the heater core.
you can open it manualy with ascerw driver by pushing the temerature control door shaft that is located behind it up.this is only temprerary fix until you replace this part.
