Question about Ford Escort
My heater stopped working and heat rises on engine but when i accelerate and rpm's rise my heat starts working and engine heat returns to normal. as soon as rpm's go down heat blows cold air and engine starts to over heat.
Add any coolant recently? Start w the basics. I think you just need to add water. H2O...No more coolant.

You have an air pocket in the cooling system.Make sure you don't have any leaks or loose clamps that could cause system to get air in system. Then park vehicle on an incline or jack front end up to get the top of radiator higher than the heater core then remove radiator cap,fill system then run for 2 minutes at 2000 rpms,you should see some bubbles at the radiator cap then refill system and reinstall cap.This should take care of your problem unless you have a leak somewhere.
