Heater blowing warm air not hot

1998 ford Escort zx2 Heat is slow getting warm. Temp gauge barely registers. I have reaplced the Thermostat, radiator cap, blew out heater core. No heat when in idle but works once driven. What now?


Water pump. First make sure you have enough coolant and the reservoir system isn't leaking(or any leaks). Fords are hard to get air out of the system. I always over fill Fords because of air. It will usually purge out in a couple days. only getting warm at idle and hot going down the road is a water pump or something is still clogged up. IE.. heater core.

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus that after replacing the water pump I lost all heat. I replaced the thermostat and "burped" the air out of the system but still don't have heat any ideas what it could be


Bob,there still may be air in there........I always bleed the air from the heater hose line entering the water pump. There should be a connection about a foot or so above where it enters there.
Take that loose while engine is cool.
Have someone start the car while you hold it downward AWAY from the alternator,and you stay clear also of that belt.
If the fluid gushes out of that line,it should be getting thru your heater core.

The heater only blows luke warm air. Just replaced the water pump and thermostat. Hot water on one heater hose, cool on the other. Both front and rear.


Hello...

One of 3 things could cause this, that I know. The thermostat has been installed backwards. The water pump broke soon after install. Due to it being a rebuilt one. And a small clog in the heater core. All of these things are easy to fix.

Good Luck...

Need to replace thermostat 2000 taurus


If it's the 3.0L Vulcan Engine (OHV), the thermostat is on the driver's side of the vehicle. Follow the upper radiator hose back to a metal area with three 10mm bolts. This is the thermostat housing. Undo the bolts, and there's the thermostat. Mark the back of it with the old thermostat in it (if you get one with a jiggle valve, it'll make it easier to put the new one in because the jiggle valve needs to be on top). The thermostat and housing aren't perfectly round, so you'll have to play with it a little to get it to line up. Make sure to change the gasket. The spring side of the thermostat goes into the engine.

The water pump is in the serpentine assembly. It's the larger pulley located toward the firewall. It'll be easiest to remove the water pump if you also remove the coolant recovery tank. The water pump pulley has four 1/2" bolts that you need to take out WITH THE BELT STILL ATTACHED. I can't stress this enough. The belt will keep the pulley in place so that you can remove the bolts. Take the pulley off, then the belt. Remove the heater hose at the top and the radiator hose at the bottom. There are 12 bolts of two diameters (1/2" and 10mm if I'm not mistaken). Tap the heater hose lightly with a soft-faced mallet to break the seal with the gasket. Trash the old gasket. Replace gasket (you can also line the mating surface of the water pump with RTV Sealant, put the new gasket on the new pump, and line the other side of gasket with a second coat of RTV sealant if you want a really good seal). Install the water pump and torque to manufacturer's specs. Attach the pulley to the water pump hand tight and put the belt back on. Tighten the pulley bolts. Put the coolant recovery tank back in place. Fill with coolant, start engine, bleed and check for leaks.

To bleed cooling system: Idle the engine until the thermostat opens (you'll be able to tell bacause the upper radiator hose will be uber hot and you'll feel coolant running through this hose). Squeeze all hoses in the system that you can reach, but don't burn yourself. Stop the engine and let it cool. Open the radiator cap and squeeze the COLD upper radiator hose. You'll see some bubbles in your recovery tank. You might have to monitor your coolant level for a couple of days while the final bits of air are purged through your radiator cap (that's why it's pressurized).

Hope this helps. It's not hard, but it took me quite awhile.

Temp gauge goes from cold to hot.


You can remove the rad cap and run the engine ( do not remove cap when hot!! ) You should be able to see the coolant circulating in the rad. You can also remove a heater hose and hold upwards and start engine, if coolant flows out the pump is circulating. If all looks good at that point I would start to suspect a cylinder head gasket leak and / or cracked cylinder head. Hope this helps .. Good Luck
