Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
Weak water pump'll do it every time. If that's the original pump,it's time to replace it anyway. First loosen the pressure cap on the expansion tank where you would add the antifreeze(so it doesn't build up pressure)Check the water pump by warming up the engine where you KNOW the thermostat is open.This means water should be circulating thru the block into the top of the radiator really fast.
Now using a rag to keep from burning you,squeeze the upper radiator hose tightly all at once to shut off its flow.You should see a slight collapsing of the lower radiator hose when you first do this,because you have starved the pump of its inlet supply. If you don't see the hose collapse somewhat,the pump's weak.
Just did a dodge caravan water pump to bring back the heater.Works good now! don-ohio (:^)

You might have to purge the coolent system cause when you change stuff like that you normally have to bleed the the colent system. So what you have to do is run the car untill your temp gets to 195 degrees the cut the car off and let the coolent drain down and then refill and geep doing that untill you have heat.
