Question about Ford Windstar
It's your blend door actuator which is sticking. Probably the plastic teeth on the cog inside are worn. It is white plastic and is located behind your radio. It controls the opening of your blend door from A/C (closed) to heat (open). Buy a Ford Windstar radio removal tool from any parts store (less than $10.00) remove the radio. You will then have access to the actuator. At the bottom right you will see a little plastic wheel with an indented square. Find a long flat head screwdriver that wil fit diagonally into the square and turn it clockwise slowly. The blend door should pop open and heat will enter the cabin. Finally when you have the time replace the unit. They sell for about $75.00 at the dealer or cheaper elsewhere. Good luck. This worked for me.

Sounds like air is trapped. Park uphill. loosen cap on cold engine, let it warm up and see if it burps bubble of air. Fill radiator and reservoir, tighten cap, let cool. Repeat a few times.
If not burped, get shop to do evac/fill with their evac/fill equipment.
Make sure heater hoses are hot going into heater core and coming out. may be a bad controller or heater water valve if equipped.
