Sounds like your temperature actuator is not moving or your temp door is broken. On max a-c ,coolant is shut off to your heater core allowing only cold air in.

thanks for those suggestions. i did have a total radiator flush and tank replacement done 1 year ago on my 2002 ford taurus. after wards the mechanic let my wife know if i had any problems i might have to do with the heater core. i also dont get much heat. and when i do it usually is because we are at 30-60 miles per hour. it is slow to heat anyways. my thinking was heater core because of the gunk i had before it flushed. i did put radiator cleaner in and ran for a long while. i did a back flush and the water pump squeals but no leaking. i did take hose off of the tank on radiator side and blew into it and the pump quieted down. when presurized the flow from the tank is working fine. i just dont know if it is the heater core or the pump or the valve? as i was reading this article the tests of the hoses were the same. i know it is a long process to replace heater core and that is why i am on here is to get to a site thats free to get instructions on replacing the heater core incase these other techniques dont solve my problem. if any one out there has info where i can go i would be greatful. my wife can be like a heater blowing cold to warm air. not very pretty.not to mention the time to replace the heater. do i have to take something apart to access the vent valve to see if it is working?

THIS PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY A FAILED PART CALLED A "AIR TEMPERATURE CONTROL BLEND DOOR ACUATOR MOTOR", IT IS LOCTED IN THE AIR DUCT AT THE BLEND DOOR APPROX CENTER OF DASH, IN MOST CASES THE DASH MUST BE REMOVED TO SERVICE THIS MOTOR..
