Okay i have a '89 ford f150 4x4 standard single cab short wheel base with a 302 & i just replaced the thermostat 180 degrees & replaced the fan clutch because thermostat stuck & fan clutch was bad & it ran...


Its possible that you got a faulty thermostat that is actually sticking open and not allowing the water to actually heat up to temperature. Try checking the heater and see if you actually have heat. If not, I would start there and purchase another thermostat. It's the cheapest route and I have purchased bad ones myself.

No heat ,


Check the vacuum lines to make sure they are correctly connected and in good shape. If they are not, then the system wont move the dampers to allow hot air into the heat vents. A second possibility is a clogged heater core, which is not allowing hot water to circulate through it. As you say the head has been replaced, I would have someone insure every thing was reconnected correctly. It could be the hoses to the heater core are reversed!

The hot water does not circulate thru the heater core.


Yes, the water should be coming thru the hoses. Only 2 things cause water to circulate. They are the water pump (naturally) and the thermostat. If both are good or have been changed, the only thing I can think of is an air pocket in the cooling system. Would need to touch some things before I could tell you more. Good luck.

Heater does not work have flushed engine changed thermostat and heat flapper valve


the problem maybe heater core stopped-up. need to see if coolant is flowing thru heater core.and check to see if heater hoses are getting hot near heater core . if take off heater hoses to core with water hose run water thru one side of the hoses to see if water flows thru the other hose.

2003 sable heater not working


Warm up vehicle. Then, from the engine compartment, grip each heater hose to check if they are HOT. Not warm HOT. If they are both hot, then the BLEND DOOR is stuck to the cold position. Access this thru glove box area.

If they are not HOT, then check radiator hoses for proper heat. If radiator hoses are not HOT then thermostat is stuck OPEN.

If they are HOT then there may be a restriction in circulation to the heater hoses and heater core.

No heat,ch.thermostat,water is circulating,blower goin strong .


Check the 'heater control valve'. This valve opens when u turn on the heat switch on the dash, so the hot coolant will flow thru the heater core and provide heat. So although the coolant is circulating in the engine, the valve controlling the flow to the heater core is stuck closed, or not working.
