Could be air pockets in the cooling system if it is not full of liquid coolant, or a problem with the thermostat.

SOURCE: Heater only blows hot (well, warm) on full speed of fan

Replace the temp control on this car, it should be electrical control not cables.

SOURCE: heater on ford 2003 ford pick up blows cold air

on the evap box there is a control mtr that switches the hot cold door. these mtrs are prone to failure. the other problem that i have seen is that the door breakes in side the evap box and that means removing the box to replace the door . if i remeber correctly you may have to slide the dash back to gain assces to the control mtr to test it good luck

SOURCE: ford mondeo mk3, intermitent dumping of water from

You may have an air pocket in your system which some times happens.  One way to get rid of it is to take the upper hose off on the engine side,  fill your system with water until it runs out from your engine block, replace the hose, start your car turn you heater on and set to hi keep the radiator cap loose until the temp start to rise then close tight.  Once the air pocket had been remover you can drain some of the water from the radiator using the lower drain plug and add antifreeze.

SOURCE: rev counter, speedo & sometimes fuel & temp guage not working

pull the instrument cluster out and check the printed circuit and connector to it from harness, plug it in and out three or four times, this may cure the problem.

The vehicle is 2004 buick century. sometimes the temp guage rises and comes back down. during this time, clod air blows. sometimes the temp guage is 1/2 way and cold air blows. thermostat has been changed....


is your electric fans running constantly. and most times then not you`ll need a water temp sensor or water temp relay. usually the temp sensor on that model comes usually next to the thermostat with a little wired plug on top. or on the radiator. either way pull the plug while the motor is cold. unscrew the sensor and screw the new one in and replace the electric plug back on top of the sensor. 2 things: Cold motor, have every thing set up and ready because when you take out the sensor the coolant will start to come out. you will not loose much if you work quick. keep rags or paper towels below the sensor to keep coolant off the motor and smelling when it gets hot. you have also pour or hose off coolant after your done installing the new coolant temp sensor.

Sounds like the fuel sender unit is faulty. It's a float system in the fuel tank that converts a float reading into a electrical signal to the dash.

It sounds like your thermostat is sticking. You can tell when it sticks when your temp gauge spikes high and your blower won't blow heat and when it finally opens your temp gauge goes back down and you have heat again.

You need a new thermostat. These are cheap, but can be kinda difficult to change on some vehicles. Most of them can be done very easily though. Good luck hope this helps.
