Sounds like temp control valve is not working properly, or there is air in the cooling system, or the cooling sytem needs to be flushed. First thing to check for is air. Is the coolant level low? Also look in top of radiator while engine is cold and running to see if the coolant is moving and does it look dirty/sludgey.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Taurus blowing hot air from the vents

I have the same problem on my 2000 Taurus. I've been told by a Ford service technician that it is probably an intermittent problem where the blend door gets stuck in the 'heat' position. I have electronic A/C controls, and there is a diagnostic procedure I can do where it runs the blend door through its full range of motion, and which seems to get it unstuck. If the problem happens again (and as I said, mine is intermittent), you might try doing the same thing by turning the dial all the way from hot to cold and back again a few times, to see if it gets unstuck. Or you could try to repair/replace the blend door.

Check the coolant level.Feel the heater hoses going to the heater core to see if they are warm,or hot.If one of them is warm,or hot,and the other is not,remove the heater hoses,and flush the heater core out with a water hose.Bleed the coolant system,and you might want to install a new thermostat while you are at it.

I have an 1994 ford escourt wagon LX...i have replaced the thermostat and housing and back flushed the whole system..the air still doesnt blow hot enough air to warm the car up inside..this needs to be...


Hi hope I can help.
Go in the engine compartment on the passenger side fire wall,
you will see two 3/4 inch hoses.
run your engine up to temp
Then place your hand on the two hoses. (heater core hoses)
Both hoses should be warm.
If one is hot and the other cool your heater hose is clogged.
You can try to flush it by removing the hoses and flush it with a garden hose.
hopes this helps .and keeps your warm.
Please leave feedback thank you FixYa

I just replaced my thermostat and all fluids are full and my heat is blowing luke warm, the hose to the heater core is hot real hot still not blowing hot


Check the return line on the heater core. If its not warm or hot, the core has a clog. Will have to be replaced.

After replacing all heater hoses the heater does not blow warm air as well as it used to, . even when the engine is very hot the air is only luke warm, any suggestions appreciated.


You have a vapour lock. With engine running, disconnect heater line for a second or two to let air locks out & replace hose & retighten. Make sure the antifreese is topped off & have heat on high when doing this procedure. Good luck!

The interior air of my 2002 taurus is blowing warm, instead of hot, air unless I'm sitting at idle for a while. Both hoses to the heater core are hot....what could be causing this?


I had this simular problem on a customers Taurus and found that the heater core was slightley pluged up. She was tight on cash and was able to blow it out with a few bursts of air through the heater hose inlet. If this is your problem be shure to unhook both hoses first. Hope this helps

Heater blows cold air.


heater cores clog in taurus. way to know is this--engine fully hot--heat on reach down to the fire wall and grab hold of one of the heater hoses where it hooks to the core--one should be real hard to keep hold of because its that hot. If the other is close to the same the core is not clogged. But if the other is cold to the touch its clogged. You can remove the hoses and shoot garden hose water in one side or the other and break it loose usually
