Question about Ford Escort
Temp Gauge reads hot, no heat in car, yes fan comes on and I changed the thermostate and added coolant. I also burped the rad too.
Help I have to save this car.
Air sometimes gets trapped in the heater hoses or heatercore itself pull the upper heater hose off the block,hold it in the air and try to fill it,that should push the air out of the line

Double check the fluid level again, other option is a blocked heater core

as soon as you turn it on after it has been shut off for how long? you could have a bad sensor. if you have a sohc (single overhead cam) engine you have a coolant temp sensor. if you have a dohc (double overhead cam) engine you have a cylinder head temp sensor. either way you will need to start with everything cooled off, drain the coolant, remove and replace the sensor. for the sohc engine you have to remove the ignition coil to get to the sensor, for the dohc you have to remove the alternator. in both engines you are supposed to torque the bolts that hold the sensor in place to 89 in-lbs, tight enough to not have a coolant leak at that point, and not so tight that you stretch the bolts or break them off in the block. if you still have a problem after you replace the sensor then you probably have a bad water pump. hope that helps.
