Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

When you turn heat on it does not not come out hot mostly warm, warms up a little more when you drive or idle it up. I have replaced the thermostat and flushed the system, flushing thw system helped out but did not fix it.

(This is from the assumption that your coolant is at the appropriate level) find your heater hoses. let the car run and get warm and then touch both the heater hoses. If one is hot and one is noticeably cooler than the other your heater core is blocked and needs to be replaced. Flushing the system, especially at home, will not always clean out the heater core and if it was full on blocked before the flush then even a power flusher may not have unblocked it. If both hoses are cooler than the radiator hoses then no coolant is getting that far. if both are hot and roughly the same temp then your temperature blend door is probably stuck. If it gets cold when you turn it the whole way down, then stuck is not your problem.

Idles@2500 rpm until engine warms up


old post
all do, everyone. but. the devil really is in the details with EFI.
this IAC valve does that,
to speed it up warm up , put in a 195F thermostat.
this assumes 800 RPM is hot.
most of these engines, do this. new. bewlow.

1: cold start, for 3 to 15sec, 2500 rpm , worse in alaska.
2: then the above DASH pot closes and IAC takes over, at ~1200
3: then as engine heats the IAC closed inch by micro inch a
its now 100% closed and the ECU not controls idle hot.
using the modulated ISC,
there is a fast idle feature on this year, 950 to1000 rpm hot
with these turned on.
1. headlights hot.
2: defrost glass, rear.
3: heater fan on.
4: a/c on if opted.
other wise 800 is normal hot.

Feel the hoses going to heater core, one should be hot and the other warm. If one is cold or both are then heater core is clogged. Make sure heater control valve works and as vacuum to it and or the cable is free.

Heater not warming or taking too long


First off need to know if it is a 2.0 or 1.8T engine. Most likely you have a 2.0L engine. The coolant light on the dash will stay blue untill the temp reaches a set temp by ECM, then goes out. Since the Beetles do not have a temp gauge you dont know what the actual temperature is. I replace thermostats on these all the time for this problem on these cars. To test this, start car and let run at idle and set heater fan on low. Let run untill you feel warm to hot air coming out the vents. Once its as warm as it is going to get, go drive the car at a steady cruise and see if the temp drops. If so then you need a thermostat replacement. I only use OE VW thermostats 050121113C. Hope that helps you out. Kevin

No heat in my villager


you have air trapped in the engine. very common. park van uphill, fill radiator & reservoir, turn on heater, leave cap loose. wait for engine to warm up to burp air.
