These taurus' have a notorious problem with the blend door actuator(controls hot and cold air mixture) failing.This is located in the cab of the car underneath the dash right in the center.This is not a diy project unless you have fairly extensive mechanical background.What you can check with ease though is to make sure that your coolant is full, this can cause a no heat condition.Also get your car up to normal operating temp and place your hands on the inlet and outlet if the heater core hoses, on the engine side of the firewall, and make sure both hoses are hot, if they are both hot then it is a blend door issue, if not then you have a restricted heater core, you can back flush your heater core by removing the hoses and placing a garden hose to either side and flushing it thru. I hope i could help....rate me accordingly.Thanks!!!

Front and rear blow little to no heat


If you know for sure the thermostat is working, it could be low on coolant and has air pockets in the system. Only one radiator hose should be warm until the engine reaches normal temp, and both heater hoses should be very warm.

The heating coil is probably getting plugged up. You may have heat at idle or slow speeds, but once you get going, there is not enough coolant going through it to stay warm. Get the system flushed or replace the heating coil.

My mazda protege is having a heating problem. The temp guage will go up to the normal place as the engine warms up but then when I drive down the road the temp guage goes down to below cold and then my car...


I believe the mazda protege has a separate thermoswitch to activate the radiator's fan. Perhaps the fan keeps blowing until the temperature is too low. Try replacing the fan thermoswitch. Just take care to put in tis place a thermoswitch of the same temperature range.

No heat from blowerbut temp guage says normal what is wrong?


This can be caused by a bad heater core. The heater core provides heat from the motors coolant system and transfers it to heat. Then the blower motor takes that heat and blows it into the van. Another possibility is that the cold/warm blender doors that direct the air flow can get stuck in one position.

check the coolant level first! and change the thermostat if need be. sit in car until the temp. guage reads normal temp. if it is normal, and still no good heat. it is possibly the thermostat thats sticking. when changing coolant remember to bleed air from system while putting fluid in. it may also need a good flush. good-luck !! i live here in ny and today the wind chill is 8 below zero.

Why is my heat/front defrost not working very well. Only shoots warm air? And not very forceful.


hi from uk can i offer this advice ? when you start engine let it warm up a little then drive untill temp guage reads warm at least ? then when you put front screen defrost on only select screen and No 2 speed then as temp reaches normal screen will clear fully if you select full speed on heat blower to clear screen at first start it will not work because the coolant from engine passing thro the heater matrix/radiator will be rapidly cooled by fan of heater TRY IT? in years gone by it was common remedy if you were stuck in traffic and temp rose towards hot you could cool system down by putting heater on full heat and the fan on max this cooled the engines coolant as it passed thro the heater ?hope you understand how heater/fan should work for optimum efficiency my wife has owned 2 of these accents and never had heat/demist problems it is surprising how many people consider the demist/heater systems are poor on many cars not just hyundai hope this helps best wishes

Heater blowing cold air


My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8s with 55,000 mi. blows cold air from the heater. Coolant not circulating in engine. Lower hose stays cool to touch. Both heater hoses cold. Changed thermostat - didn't fix it. Coolant not leaking or dirty. None in oil - no oil in radiator. Changed worn water pump belt - pump spins freely with no noise or resistance. Cooling fans come on after warm-up. Temperature gauge stays in normal range then jumps to hot and back again. Coolant good to 10 below - didn't freeze here yet. No other problems or repairs to car. Afraid to drive and make worse. Help!
