If your engine temperature gauge reads normal, then the heater control (temperature setting) is probably at fault. If the temp gauge remains on COLD, then the thermostat is probably stuck open and needs to be replaced. If the temp is normal do the following:
With the truck running (outside, of course), go to the passenger side of the truck and remove the panel that is just under the glove box. Inside that area is the heater core and the controls to operate the hot/cold vents. With a flashlight in hand look in that area as someone moves the temp lever or control from hot to cold. You should see movement of the cable to the heater core. If nothing is noted, check for loose wires, disconnected cable and any vacuum leaks. You may have to replace the heater control unit. On a vehicle of this age, your best bet would be a salvage yard or EBAY...
Good Luck and I hope this helps...

Several things can cause this (1) low coolant (2) bad coolant valve to heater core.(3) bad damper in duct.

After replacing the thermostat, you must bleed the air from the cooling system.

To bleed air from the 2.2L and 2.5L engines, remove the plug or sensor on the top of the thermostat housing. Fill the radiator with coolant until the coolant comes out the hole. Since the plug is made out of steel and the thermostat housing is aluminum, it is a good idea to apply an anti-seizing compound or Teflon® tape on the plug threads prior to installation. Install the plug and continue to fill the radiator. This will vent all trapped air from the engine.

Any trapped air in the heating system will have to be displaced by coolant. Once the cooling system is filled, with the radiator cap off, turn of the heater at it's highest setting. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temp. You should see a drop in the coolant level as the air in the heating system is displaced by coolant. Add coolant to the proper level and replace the radiator cap.

Keep a close eye on the coolant level for at least the next couple of weeks. The cooling system is a "closed" system. Any significant decrease in coolant level indicates a problem.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Please take the time to rate this solution.

Drive safe and be warm.

My yruck only blows cold air wont blow warm


Could be the air flaps of the heater unit are set incorrectly or not working at all or possibly the heater radiator is blocked or semi-blocked or perhaps there is something wrong with the heater hoses or the heater water valve if one is fitted.

These things need checking before a cause can be established.

I am sometimes called upon to flush out a heater radiator. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and sometimes it causes a leak and the heater radiator must be replaced. Not an easy job on many vehicles made in the last couple of decades..

NO HEAT ON 2000 FORD TARAUS


there is a valve on one of the heater hoses that is run by vacuum if it don't work hot water will not enter the heater core. If it does work maybe the heater core is just plugged up.A quick fix for that is swapping the heater hose's I know one is bigger than the other but if you can it will change flow direction and it will flush the core. It should work after that. Heaters aren't controlled by the cars computer they may be controlled by the controller but thats cars with climate control
