First check to do is make sure the accellerator cable is not over adjusted. Check fuel lines and injectors for leaks may have loss of fuel pressure. Check all vacuum hoses for cracks and splits. check air tube between air filter housing and throttle body make sure it has no splits. Good luck.

Check the cable to the temp sender unit is attached if so check the unit is working with a ohms meter. check the throttle cable is not binding ,the throttle leaver stop at the throttle body housing should be fully closed .

SOURCE: 96 Ford truck engine lIght will not go away.

this is the problem with code readers they bwill tell you the code and sometimes even have a reset feature. However they do not tell you the parameters and don't have an drivability feature so you can not test the ecm and all the sensors or modules while engine is running. diagnostic scan tools are very expensive and hard to use unless you have been trained to do so and PEP BOYs is not what I call real reliable mechanics to begin with. Now I concure with toddG on his reasoning in what might be the potential fault. if your vehicle is running rich or lean your O2 sensor will pick this up on the exaust side, however it is not the sole sensor responsible for the ecm adjusting the fuel air mixture.. you stated that you have switched out several o2 sensors and the fuel pressure regulator, but there is also you mass air flow sensor, your TPS sensor, as well as your map sensor these are worth checking out and just because a faulty sensor is the problem doesn't mean you will get a code each time. the system is built with redundancy in order to keep the vehicle running. in order to get the best possible diagnois take it to a shop where they have a full diagnostic scanner this will have not only OBD1 and OBD2 but cam protocol as well. while the tech is scanning the vehicle he will be able to see how the engine is performing under realtime conditions. please rate this as well as change the rating for toddg because he did offer a valid suggestion

SOURCE: defrost blows cold air

Sounds like you have a plenum door that is not opening when you go into defrost mode. You will have to check all your vacuum hoses and switching valves under the dash to see which one is not working. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Temperature Control not working on 1999 Ford Explorer

Sounds like your temperature actuator is not moving or your temp door is broken. On max a-c ,coolant is shut off to your heater core allowing only cold air in.

SOURCE: 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

Blows cold air when heat is on


If temp. Gauge goes way up check the intake gasket may be blown out and leaking. Take a flash light and shine it under throttle body and look for coolant. Check radiator to make sure it is full only check radiator when engine is cold DON'T OPEN WHEN HOT can cause burns.

Engine temp guage shows cold


Let the truck run for about 15 minutes. If the engine temperature does not come up turn the heater on and check to see if the air coming out is hot or cool. If it is hot the engine's thermostat is operating fine and most likely the problem is with the temperature sending unit for the gauge. If the air is cool the thermostat is stuck open. Try replacing the thermostat if the air is cool.

Heater blows cold air. also, the temperature gage


A thermostat stuck in the open position can cause both of these problems

No heat air is blowing cold


First you have to identify what causes the problem.
To do this you have to:
1) When engine is cold check the level of coolant. If it is low fill it up.
2) Start engine and check if engine reaches regular temperature. If your engine is not heated enough it means your thermostat does not work properly and should be replaced.
3) If engine temperature is normal, then check the temperature of pipes that go to/from heater core. These pipes are located up the fire wall (easier access is from the passenger side). If pipe/pipes are cold (even engine is worm) it means you heater core is plugged and should be flushed. Keep in mind, flushing the whole cooling system is different from flushing heater core.
4) If pipe/pipes are hot/warm, turn off the fan, switch controller to the hot position, wait for 3-4 minutes and turn on the fan. Note if the cold air blows first or warm air blows first but it cools down in 5-10 seconds. If the air blows cold than it is most probably the problem with blend door or blend door actuator.
5) If air blows warm first and then cools down, then while running engine and remaining the transmission in PARKING position, press on the gas pedal until your engine reaches 3,000 RPM. Check if your heater blows warm/hot air. If it does, then your water pump does not work properly and should be replaced. If the air still cold, I would suggest to flush the heater core.

It is most probably the problem with blend door or blend door actuator. But just in case I would suggest to follow the entire procedure:

Overheating, guage not over 1/2 mark, overflow smells like exhast


Have you tried running car from cold, with rad cap off, & heater turned on, coolant topped up, an inch or 2 from top of rad? Let it run up to operating temperature, cooling fans kick in & out 2 or 3 times, and top up coolant as needed, then put rad cap back on, & fill return bottle up to mark. There may be a worse problem, but bleeding system as I have described, ensures all air out of heater core & cooling system, which has been cause many times before on all makes & models of vehicles. Especially when no heat situation. Let me know if it helps.

1996 ford tarus location of coolant temperatue sensor?


I doubt if it is the temperature sensor if the gauge is working. Check to see if the fans are coming on when the engine is hot. The fans have two speeds and should come on in low speed and change to high speed as temperature gets hotter or when air conditioner is turned on. If they are working correctly. I would guess the radiator is partially plugged up between the air conditioner condensor and the radiator. These cars are bad about getting dirt, lint, and what ever trapped in this area.

The heater is blowing cold but the engine temperature reads high


Hi
I would first check to see if both heater hoses are hot to the heater.
if 1 is hot and 1 is cold the heater control valve is closed or the heater core is plugged.
