By the sounds of things your head gasket might be split you could get a compression test done at most local garages if there is any problem in the test then your head gasket is most likely blown and will need replaceing, its not a small job and might cost a bit.

2001 Ford Taurus No Heat I am having trouble with

possibly the bled door is stuck open so only the cold air from a/c works when on defrost vs closing to allow heat to cycle through the system as defrost runs through the a/c system

The blower motor heater is not working properly on my 2003 Ford Taurus SEL. works after car has been running and is in motion for about 5-7 min. Does it need replacement? Have not taken in for service...

Assuming the blower blows but cold air for the first few minutes, its not terribly unusual. The engine needs to warm up before it can provide warm air for the cabin.

That said, if its not been serviced for some time, it could probably do with a coolant change/check. Getting the thermostat checked at the same time.

1999 Ford Taurus 3.0l EFI 6cyl, Heater does not work, only blows cold air, have already flushed the radiator cooling system, and installed a new thermostat, still cold air. Anyone's help will be Greatly...

It could be air locked. Feel both your heater hoses, and, with the engine running, loosen the one that's cold, if there is one. If that doesn't help, it is probably your heat control valve that is malfunctioning.

1999 Ford Taurus, no heat. Air comes thru all vents but blows cold air like the ac is on. Replaced thermostat twice, flushed heater core twice, still ice cold air. Help?

Try checking the two pipes that go into and come out of the heater matrix, is one of them hot? if it is there is an air lock within the matrix, Also is the thermostat opening fully? Sorry i know you said you have changed it twice already but take it out check settings when it should open and close, then boil some water and test the thermostat

I have a 2000 Taurus with a V-6 standard motor. Unfortunately when the heat is turned on it will blow air, but not hot air. The a/c works just fine also. Where should I start looking for the solution /...

Start by allowing the motor to run until it reaches normal temperature. Check the top and bottom hoses on the radiator, if the top is hot and the bottm is cold it's likely the thermostat is stuck closed. Also check the hoses on the heater core. If they're not both hot the heater core is blocked.
