Question about 1995 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

Cooling system I got my 1995 Ford Taurus coolant recharged about a month ago. Two weeks later it stopped blow cold air. I took it back in and they told me it was leaking from a hose and it would cost $450 for the hose and $150 for labor. Do you know if that part cost's that much, it seems very high for just a hose. Please let me know so I can get it fixed. I just don't want to be taken advantage of. Thanks, Lindee please email me at lin3d@hotmail.com

I know this problem due to it happened to me. The ac lines come as a set, and you can't obtain just the one line from Ford. You might be able to out source the part and find it separate, but it would not come from Ford that way. The labor is to replace all the hoses.

Personally, I traced back the leak to a specific component (the evaporator) and then fixed the leak. Be cautious of any dealer and other auto repair places, they will replace a lot of unnecessary parts. If they say it's leaking from a hose, they should be able to point out to you the hose that is leaking and where, if they cannot, then find another mechanic.

    There is more to it than just parts replacement. EPA regulations REQUIRE BY LAW that any and all refrigerant be recovered. Since the shop where you took it put refrigerant in the system they can not simply open the system on the reasoning that it is an empty AC unit. This is a far cry from simply adding refrigerant to the Air Conditioner. They SHOULD have checked for leaks to begin with but did it bargain basement style and now the cost has caught up. After a number of years, all automotive AC systems develop leaks due to the excessive vibrations that they experience. Never assume a simple shot of refrigerant will fix the system.

Heater not working 2002 ford taurus


Sounds like temp control valve is not working properly, or there is air in the cooling system, or the cooling sytem needs to be flushed. First thing to check for is air. Is the coolant level low? Also look in top of radiator while engine is cold and running to see if the coolant is moving and does it look dirty/sludgey.

Ac blows hot


A car's air conditioning system is very technical and has many parts that could be contributing to a malfunction. The solution could be as simple as adding more refrigerant to your A/C system in order to recharge it. On the other hand, there may not even be a problem with the A/C itself, but there could be a problem with the radiator and coolant system. Having the ability to effectively troubleshoot why your car A/C system is not working properly can save you hundreds of dollars that would be spent on a mechanic if you are able to fix the problem yourself.

Heater blowes cold air clamping the hose worked for a month .


Could be a cooling system problem; Ranges from a leak in the radiator, radiator hoses, coolant reservoir, low coolant, even a bad coolant reservoir cap could cause it. Also water pump is a possibility. If not those, could be a bad blend door actuator.

I have a 2010 ford escape..prob started as a coolant leak..took it to ford dealer, they repl water pump..a week later we noticed when u stop a red lite heater starts blowing cold air..took back to...


The performance of the heater indicates low coolant level. Pretty strange about the multiple water pumps, but if is is under warranty, you need to keep going back to the dealer. They must be missing something...

93 ford taurus blows cold at a stop, heat when moving. Please help


The first thing I would do is check the coolant level. Low coolant can cause this to happen.

If the coolant is not low than I would have the heater care back flushed. If the coolant is really dirty than I would also have the cooling system flushed at the same time.

Car will not heat. Blows out cold air


Firstly check the coolant level when the engine is cool. If fluid is at correct level then more then likely thermostat is stuck open. Have coolant system flushed before installing new thermostat. Also check water pump to make sure it is not leaking out of the weep hole.

1995 ford windstar overheat after replacing the thermostat


Let your engine warm up with the rad. cap off and see if the coolant level drops. and make sure your overflow is full. It blows cold air because there is no water getting to the heater core. And it shows a normal(ish) temp because the water needs to be touching the temp. sensor. I really do think there is air in the system and there is not enough coolant but hard to tell from here. Also as with overheating any time make sure to check your oil and look for any coolant as the head gasket seldomly holds together if the motor overheats.
