I have a problem with the heater on Ford Escort 1.9 TD. The fan works but blows cold air. Changed the water pump, the system is filled with liquid, but no heating. What could be the problem?

maybe the thermostat is bad if the upper and lower hoses are both hot that means your thermostat is open and you should have heat. there could just be air bubbles in the system some times their will be a bleeder near thermostat housing just open it while its running till all air comes out.or you are a little low on fluid.
the only other 2 thing i can think of is if your heater core is clogged try to flush it out,or if you have a blend door actuator or a vent control valve hooks to your heater hoses near heater core that is bad that normally opens and closes. a door or valve shutting the hot air from entering.sorry there is a lot of things that can cause your problems!

ford KA has the same "problem"as some other cars in as much you should "vent the topmost hot hose,after flushing or refilling the system."...with the engine running and the cap off the expansion tank.undo the clip on the topmost hot hose and allow any air to vent(wear rubber gloves, cos its real hot...)then top up the tank.
