SOURCE: 2006 Ford Fusion SEL - TPS
The TPS is an easy part to replace. It has 2 screws and 1 electric connector. It is about the size of a butane lighter and attaches to the metal airhorn.
There is only a slight adjustment possible for this part. One end has an elongnated slot for the screw. Just look at where the old part was adjusted and replace it that way. The only thing you need to watch is aligning the slot on the throttle shaft with the indentation on the TPS.
While you are replacing the part, disconnect the battery on the POS cable and this will reset the "check engine" light on the dash. Then reconnect and drive your car.

You have to remove the cover around the gearshift, there you'll find the bulb, it's a small 12V bulb, just pull it out of the holder and install a new one.

This sounds like a bad water thermostat or a cooling fan relay stuck on Run. The thermostat should be under the top housing of the motor where the big radiator hose meets the engine.
The other method of cooling a hot motor is the electric fan attached to one side of the Radiator. This fan may run more when the A/C is on, but when you are using the heat it should not run constantly. This fan should be off when the motor is cold.
In some cases the sensor for the fan will make a trouble Code and light the "check engine" light on the dash. You can get a free scan from Autozone or Oreillys.
Once you get heat in the motor your heater should work quicker. If the motor is hot and the heater is not, feel the smaller hoses running from the motor to the Firewall. They are about 5/8 to 3/4 inch diameter hoses. They should be hot with the heater on. If they are hot, and the heater in the car is only warm or cold, you have a ductwork problem under the dash. If the hoses are not hot, you have a flow problem. With the flow problem, either the heater core is plugged or a water valve is not turning on.
I hope my solution has identified the problem and given you a way to trace it. Start with the thermostat, new gasket, and some antifreeze to replace spillage. If you did have a warning light, either disconnect the NEG battery cable for 10 minutes or ask Autozone or Oreillys to clear your car with their scanner. Old error codes will stay in memory for 25-35 Startups if you don't clear them.
