Check radiator fluid level. The heater core sets higher than the engine. If fluid gets low, air bubbles will go to the highest point. The heater core. Check temperature guage. Is engine warming up to normal range? If not change the thermostat. Also check radiator cooling fans with engine warm.
On my car if I set the heater control on anything other than "vent" both cooling fans come on and the engine will not warm up. (still haven't figured that one out) I just run the heater in "vent"

If heater warms up when engine is held at high idle(2000rpms) then cools down at idle, you most likely have air traped in the system.

SOURCE: Heater only blows hot (well, warm) on full speed of fan

Replace the temp control on this car, it should be electrical control not cables.

SOURCE: heater on ford 2003 ford pick up blows cold air

on the evap box there is a control mtr that switches the hot cold door. these mtrs are prone to failure. the other problem that i have seen is that the door breakes in side the evap box and that means removing the box to replace the door . if i remeber correctly you may have to slide the dash back to gain assces to the control mtr to test it good luck

Fuse for heater in 2006 Ford Escape

Replace the thermostat and if that doesn't work have the heater core purged of its air while engine is at normal driving temps. Have this done professionally or wear really good gloves do that you don't get burned.

Poor heat

It probably has an air pocket in the cooling system and needs to be bled out.

If your airconditioner is running hot, check that the flap door is opening, and check the refridgerent level, if low, no cold.

My 2005 ford escape seems to have a heat issue. When the heat is turned on at it's hottest, it's hot, however when tuned down to the midway point, it cools down quite a bit, what may be the issue ?

I assume the vent door is loose or broken,and when it is set,maybe half way on the dial,the door moves to far closed.It is either that,or the control is bad.

2005 Escape. Warm air comes through vent while selector is on cold. This is while on regular air flow selection.

Check to see if the temperature door is moving. When set on max the coolant is shut off to the heater core aloowing max cooling.

you may have abad hot /cold blend door acuator.its bolted to air box. also make sure both heater hoses going to heater core are hot,if only one is hot and the other is luke warm or cold then you may have a clogged heater core,remove hoses (@ core) and flush with water hose go both ways a couple of times. good luck hope this helps.
