Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
Fan works no anti leeks moves from the air to heat but (no heat) just bought the car. replace head- radiator-thermostat but still no heat!!!!
Last but not least,a weak water pump will not force the hot water from the thermostat housing area heater hose thru the heater core and suck it back thru the return heater hose.So if the car has high miles,think about the water pump and the tensioner,belt and idler pulley while you\'re at it. don-ohio (:^)

Check the vacuum lines to make sure they are correctly connected and in good shape. If they are not, then the system wont move the dampers to allow hot air into the heat vents. A second possibility is a clogged heater core, which is not allowing hot water to circulate through it. As you say the head has been replaced, I would have someone insure every thing was reconnected correctly. It could be the hoses to the heater core are reversed!

The heater core is possibly blocked or the temperature adjuster is not working.
First check the controls to be certain that the temperature aduster is working and the flaps/doors that direct the flow of hot air are working.
If they are..........
Check heater hose temp. If one is hot and one is cold, you are not getting flow through the heater core.
Bleed it to remove an air blockage.
If that does not work, flush the system.
If that does not work, replace the heater core.

My 99 windstar did this too. It was the blend door that the actuator motor goes into was broke. When you pull the actuator out look into the hole and see if you see a d shape piece coming out of the box if it is not d shape it is broke check out this site great photos

Physically look in the radiator under the cap for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap.
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, have it boiled out, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.
Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it
