No heat in my 1999 taurus

I have no heat in my 1999 taurus. I have flushed and refilled the antifreeze. The temperature gauge seems to be in normal operating range. I have good vacuum. I have taken the glove box out and I can see lever movement when I turn on the A.C. and when I turn it off. How can I check the heater core?

Replace your water pump. i had the same problem last week. the impeller was rusted away. now it heats really well. the pump isn't hard to replace at all. when you buy your new pump, draw around the pump on a piece of card board marking all your holes. when removing your old pump, remove the bolt and stick it in the pattern. now you will know where each bolt goes back. good luck, brotha bill

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus that would not heat, took to shop they flushed the system, replaced the water pump and it ran hot after thet flushed the system took it back they flushed the system again and

Did you have red antifreeze prior to the flushing? Ford engines are generally aluminium and should be using blue antifreeze which is suitable for aluminium engine blocks! I think the antifreeze is reacting to the flush and use blue!

1999 olds silhouette heat is warm when running but the gets cooler when idling also heater hoses have no pressure on them. I have checked coolant level added some. Checked for air in cooling system by...

The heater core could be clogged. If your antifreeze is orange , then it is Dexcool antifreeze which causes slime and sludge to build up in the cooling system. It can clog a heater core. My suggestion would be to drain and flush the entire cooling system with Prestone Super Flush. Put in a new thermostat while your at it. Refill the cooling system with a green antifreeze that is labeled compatible with aluminum engine parts and radiators.Do Not refill with Dexcool antifreeze.

1999 Taurus-NO HEAT-replaced thermostat,flushed heater core,still NO HEAT,ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Sounds like the problem has to be the valve is not opening and thus not allowing the hot coolant to enter the heater coil. Manualy open the valve (engine firewall) and see if heat is present. If this works check your cable from the dash switch as it isn't working the valve properly and needs replacing.

1997 ford taurus' Flushed radiator,Added( 2 ) gallons of prestone,checked hoses ,etc.... found hose on back of engine not hot like the rest,''flushed it:still no heat!!!

Did you have heat before the flush and refill? If you did, there is probably just air in the system. I'm not sure if you have a bleeder bolt for the cooling system. Is it running in the normal temp range according to the gauge? I would drive it until it reaches operating temp, watch the gauge carefully to make sure it doesn't overheat, park it, and check the level of coolant in the morning. You may just have to top it off then, and I think you should have heat.

The cars temp gauge goes up and down,and looses heat. I am thinking a bad thermostat or lack of antifreeze/coolant. Is this a correct assumption?

My mechanic has had my Silhouette for two weeks for the same problem. Engine Tempurature is running at 195 degrees when the gauge is pegged on overheat. Normal operating temp for this van is 220. So it is not overheating. Had the cooling/heating system flushed and refilled, bled and topped off. Still the gauge is up and down like a yoyo. Still looking for answers.

No heat

The heater core may very well be plugged and in need of replacement. a repair centre can confirm that.
