2000 ford taurus heater not working. What can be wrong?

I have a 2000 ford taurus that the heat doesn't work on. Heater core is good. Radiator changed. Air works great!! Problem started when I had to have new compressor put in. Air worked. Heater didn't. It worked before. Took to get heater working, it worked but air didn't. Got air to work and heater stopped working again. Any ideas?

It sounds very much like the heater control door (inside the heater box) is sticking in one position or the other. It's intended to direct air through either the AC's evaporator or the heater core, depending upon whether you want heat or cooling.

Assuming (highly likely) that the control door is vacuum-operated, you may have a vacuum leak anywhere from the engine to the heater box inside the passenger compartment, via the heater control unit.

I have no heat for my 1999 ford taurus. My ac works but I have no heat


fill your radiator, if that doesn't fix it then your heater core is most likely dead.

My 2000 ford taurus heater stoped working. it seemed to blow out warm air then went cold. what should I do?


Mine did the same thing, except here it is very cold. I took it to a radiator specialist, and what he did was nothing short of genius. First he disconnected the hoses to the rad, heater core and engine, and then flushed each seperately. Then he reassembled it all, put in fresh antifreeze (50/50 mix) and restricted the crossover at the heater core. Now, in -20 celsius, it's so hot in the car I turn the heat almost off. I am not kidding. This is the only way to go as the cooling system gets plugged from short haul driving, sediments in the cooling system, etc. Cost me about $150.00. I am very mechanically adept, but I went and had a professional do it. Best choice.
Good Luck.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus my blower is blowing fine the heat is coming out cold i have recently changed my theromastat and the heat is still blowing cold


The heater core (a mini radiator located under the dash) or its feeder hoses are clogged. They are not allowing water to circulate through the heater core. That is where the heat comes from.

The heat on my 2000 Ford Taurus is not that good. Takes forever to heat up, but still not that good. Turning the fan up on high makes it worse. Best lukewarm heat is turning my switch to halfway on fan....


these cars are infamous for coolant contamination cause restrictions in the heater core. i suggest performing a heater core flush followed by a complete cooling system flush. i have seen this dozens of times in these cars and this has been the fix nearly every time. good luck!
