SOURCE: heater blows cold air in my escort van

I take it the water level in the expansion tank is ok. You could have a blocked core in the heater. Also the heater could be leaking. You could try flushing the cooling system and checking for leaks and blockages.

SOURCE: escort van 55 blower heater does not blow at all

I had this problem on my '98 Ford Escort ZX2.
It did not need a new blower but a $15 Blower Motor Resistor.  The wires and connectors rusted out.

SOURCE: how much oil will a ford escort van 1.8 diesel

if you have the owners manual-look in the index for oil capacity, or fluid capacities. that should inform you of the oil type and capacity (if you change the filter as well, it will prob. take another half-quart or so. the manual should inform you.
if no manual get on ford website, and search for escort 1.8L diesel van. precede with the year of model.it may inquire whether you have a/c, 4wd, etc. may need more oil, if so.
good luck!

SOURCE: hi my escort van 52 reg heater will only get slightly hot 1800

I'm not particularly familiar with that vehicle but all that I have seen also have a valve that opens and closes to allow or restrict the fluid flow to the heater core. It could be a problem if you haven't already eliminated it. The air defecting doors under the dash that direct air to the floor or to the defroster are also suspect.

2000 ford escort over heats,and no heat .


try replacing thermostat and do a coolant flush, heater matrix behind dash is prone to blockage or leakeage ( with leakage usually footwells are always damp ) before you replace the coolant after flush, fill and drain with water a couple of times, should sort it and it easier than replacing heater matrix. if heater has not been working for a while, as in 12 / 18 months matrix replacement might be only option, but spending a couple of quid on flush is worth a try first

Heater will not blow but it will heat up


This can be an outcome of a Faulty Heater Matrix. Try flushing the Heater Matrix. Try also looking at the Heater Valve. They are very vulnerable to be jammed or blocked. Try replacing by the help of a certified technician of Ford.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Heater wont workon my van


you need to replace the resister block. it is located on the duct work near the fan. you will see a connector going into the side of the duct work... two or three screws to remove it... i believe you can get them at autozone for under 20 dollars

W plate Escort 55 van, heater only blows cold. Coolants ok, no leaks, tried new thermostat, no joy. Ideas?


hiya if you warm engine up to normal temp then check / feel the two heater hoses from engine up to the point of passing into the bulkhead ? if one hose is hot/warm? and the other is cold? the cold hose is the return from heater matrix(radiator) the problem you have is probably the heater coolant control valve failed? this is electric operated and not servicable but easy diy job to renew tou will find the plastic valve on the rear of bulknead behind where h/hoses pass thro you will have to remove the plastic grill below w/screen the h/hoses are connected to the valve along with elec plug connection pull off plug then with ignition and temp control valve on max check you have a live feed on wires to valve ? if no? check fuses if yes? then replace valve hope this helps it is not uncommon fault with these valves on escorts and fiestas
