Did you check your coolant level? If it gets low you won't get heat. Is the temperature getting completely up to the normal operating range? If the thermostat sticks open your engine won't get to normal range and you won't have good heat.

Well, it sounds like your vehicle may have a bigger problem.  I would go to a shop and have it coded.  There is obviously a problem with the vehicle, may be something minor, but the light won't go off untill you fix it.

Barring any vacuum leaks, P0401 is indicative of a bad EGR valve. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Hi, this is an issue that concerns the coil pack on your engine. It is malfunctioning. and, i recommend testing to make sure of thsi issue.

Check for dirt, corrosion or damage on the terminals and repair as necessary.

Measure coil primary resistance between ignition coil pin 4 (B+) and pins 1 (coil 2), 2 (coil 3) and 3 (coil 1) .


Resistance should be 0.3-1.0 ohms. If resistance is out of specifications, replace the coil pack. If resistance is within specifications, proceed to secondary windings testing.



Coil 1-cylinders 1 and 5 Coil 3-cylinders 2 and 6 Coil 2-cylinders 3 and 4


Resistance should be 12.8-13.1 kilohms. If secondary resistance is not within specification, replace the coil pack.

You can jump this link below for a good look at a diagram of the coil pack.

Start car and use a squirt bottle of water to wet the wires and coil, if you see it spark or run rough one or both are bad, repair the wires first as they are more common.

I turn on the heather and came cold air


I think in those vehicles the temperature controls use engine vacuum to work. If so the small rubber hose which comes off the inlet manifold and goes to heater controls more than likely has a split in it. So when your engine is idling there is not enough vacuum to operate the valve that controls the water flow through your heater/ac. Pretty cheap fix unless the split is up under the dash Let me know how you get on

need to know the engine DTC code causing the light first. But, it sounds like a distributor is needed. The cam sensor is in there and it controls spark and fuel.

I have a 2001 mercury villager that overheats. I replaced the fan assembly and the thermostat. The radiator is fine. What else could be causing the van to overheat?


You have air trapped in the system. If you have cold air, warm air, cold air from your heater, then it's air entrapment. Very common these days. Go to a shop that uses vacuum method to refill cooling system & that will purge air.
Otherwise, you can try. Park uphill. cold engine - fill radiator to top with 50/50 mix of antifreeze. leave cap on but loose. fill reservior to 3/4 full. Turn heater to hot to allow coolant to flow through heater core. start engine, run at 1500 rpms until thermostat opens and upper hose is hot. tighten cap and let it cool down. after cool check level of reservoir. fill to top line on reservoir. it should **** coolant back into radiator as it cools down.
repeat if still an issue.

Overheating


you have air trapped in the system. very hard to "BURP AIR"

park uphill on ramps if possible. With cold engine, leave radiator cap loose and fill radiator and reservoir. run engine until thermostat opens. squeeze upper radiator hose with hand. SHould be hot. Have heater on hot and blower on too. Repeat as necessary. May take several attempts.

Go here and we can help if that does not work

Start with engine cool. Remove rad cap, top up coolant, start engine, & turn on heater (not defrost). let it run until up to normal operating temperature & radiator fan comes on, then shuts off. Let it do this about 3 times before you put rad cap back on & top up return bottle to proper level. Every once in a while, rev engine slightly for a few seconds while your doing it, to speed up bleed by increasing flow. Keep an eye on temperature gauge for too hot, and fan not coming on, if so, shut it off.
