Question about 1996 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

The heater on our 1996 ford ranger is just blowing out cold air--like the air conditioner is on. It is not low on water or anything it just doesn't switch when you turn the temperture to warm. We put a new thermostat on it but still nothing. Not sure if maybe it might be a fuse or something.

Your core is either bad or plugged. look for 2 rubber hoses going through the firewall on passenger side. Disconnect both of them under the hood. put a garden hose in both hoses and flush them out. You will see dirt and chucks of dirt. flush it for about 10 minutes alternating between the 2 hoses. If you notice no improvement then your core is bad and will need to be replaced. I did this on my mustang and themp. raised about 10 degrees.

Need heater hoses diagram for 1996 Ford Ranger 3.0


Hooking up the heater hoses wrong would not cause your problem. I would make sure the system is full of coolant and has no air pockets, and then check the blend door under the dash.

Where is the little door that closes off when you turn on the heat to turn the cold air flow off


ITS THE SAME DOOR
The thing that turns them over from hot to cold is a air valve that shuts off the clod water and opens the valve to let the hot water to go around the heater system so you get hot air,,, and when you turn the switch to cold it turns off the flow of water to the heater and so it blows cold.

Heater blows cold air. I have replaced thermostat,


Not an expert by any means, but i know my ranger.. I had a small leak at the top of my radiator that still cooled the engine but didnt have enough pressure to get to the heater. The heater hoses travel up over the engine and just were not gettin anything to my heater core. That or make sure the heater control valve is operating.

Heater in truck blows either cold air or no air.


It sounds like you have air trapped in the cooling system. Try filling the radiator and coolant reservoir cold. Then leave the radiator cap loose and run engine at 1500 rpm until it warms up and the thermostat opens. Make sure heater is on full warm setting.
