    This is not a t=bird. It's a 73 ford gran torino.

    After heater core installation, it WAS blowing until yesterday! No, didn't check the fuse. Where is it? By the way, thank you so much for the reply. Any other advise after this addition?

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?

Heater core or thermostat

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.

How can i fix the heat to blow hot air in my 1996 ford econoline250 cargo van

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

Heater control not working on 1997 pontiac Gran Prix

There is a flat filter that sits between the firewall and the blower. Sometimes the filter is blocked and needs to be cleaned or changed. On older cars the filter is located on the firewall in the engine compartment infront of the blower. In the newer cars the filter is under the dash inside the car and much harder to get too.,

Heater core or blower motor?

Sounds like your blower motor , you heater core is a non mechanical part and if it were the issue you are correct in thinking you would see fluid on the floor or mist on the windshield.

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.
