Hi
if the car is not overheating then this is a heater control vale fault, very common on this car cost new is about £35 in the UK this part has another name which I cannot seem to remember at the moment but here a link to what one looks like, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Ford-Fiesta-KA-Puma-transit-NEW-HEATER-CONTROL-VALVE_W0QQitemZ160372185586QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item2556ed59f2

This one is for a fiesta not taurus, but they do the same job. the part is located just in front of the window screen below the wiper arms has 2 pipes going in, one hot one cold, if both are cold then that the fault.

Regards

Dan

Heater blowing cold air and reaplaced thermostat and water pump and heatercore hose and still blowing cold air ?


You heater core is probably clogged up with contaminates! If the water is not flowing through the core for the fan to blow the heat off the core you will not get heat!

Ac fan doesn't blow hard enough 1985 300zx


If very little air comes from the vents, the fan on the blower motor may be damaged, or there may be a restriction in the vents, or a blend door may not be open completely.

I have no heat when idiling could it be a air lock


This sounds like a restricted heatercore, remove the two hoses to heatercore, take a waterhose and blow water through the heater core connections to clear out the core, i use two peices of heater hose, i slde them onto heatercore where the hoses were removed then put the hose nozzle against one end of the hose and blast water into core and see what comes out the other end then do the same on the otherside, this is to me done a few times until clean water flows out and i will bet it will solve the heat problem, because at idle theres not enough force for the coolant to flow through the core and when you rev the engine it forces coolant through the restricted core, hope this helps, good luck.

My 1999 Tahoe's air cond gets warm when you idle. Is there a fan or something that should be blowing when sitting still?


the electric fan should switch on at a stop at idle for the condensor to disapate the heat. If the fan doesnt come on not enough air flow will keep the system hot. A low freon level will compound this issue.

Air conditioning fan makes loud noise the faster you ru it.


Concerning your broken vent -- this can be caused by a broken linkage or a malfunctioning servo motor as well. these vent have air ducts the sway back and forth to adjust the dual air flow function. if the servo o linkages are malfunctioning or not connected for some reason, it will not allow total control of the air flow and temperature range. Now, if you have a combination of a flow error and temperature error as well, thai can be caused by a combination of the two.

In this case, you will need to inspect the linkages as well as the servo motor function as well. in addition, i would test the air temp sensors for there operational value. they control the temp when you adjust the coll or hot function.

Concerning the Loud noise coming from the blower fan---

This issue can be caused by a misalignment within the blower housing or, it can also be caused by some minor damage within the motor itself, causing it to rotate in a erratic manner, in return, forcing it to rub against the housing itself. the best solution here is to extract this blower fan housing and inspect for lose fan propeller and motor stability. replace parts accordingly.

PLease rate and have a great day:)

96 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not blow out hot air


It's possible you are not getting enough coolant flow to your heater core. Try pulling the hoses off the core, blowing it out with air compressor, fill with water and blow out again. Try this about five times and see what happens. Alot of times these cores will plug up or have restricted flow. They will blow warm at low speed but it won't flow enough hot coolant through to stay hot on high blower speed.

Heatercore does not get hot only one hose is hot


First make sure you have the radiator full of antifreeze also check overflow to make sure its at proper level . then let car warm up and feel hoses that go to firewall tword heater core and see if one of them are warm if so you have a blocked water control valve or its got a vacuum line off going to it .. Thanks Jerry holler if this is not it we will go from there.
