The fan on the heater works fine but it takes the heater at least a half hour before the windows are defrosted. Any ideas?

Replace the engine thermostat, it is probably stuck open.

It is located where the top radiator hose enters the engine block and is supposed to close when the engine is cold, thus prevent coolant from going to the radiator while the engine is heating up.

At engine operating temperature, it opens up, sends the coolant to the rad, and keeps the engine coolant at that constant temperature.

99% of the time, this is the culprit.

The other 1% could be a clogged/partially clogged heater core, or a busted heater core (accompanied by a coolant leak/loss over time) which fogs up the windows even more when the heater is on defrost.

Thermostat replacement is an easy, quick job and cheap.

Heater core replacement is a little bit more time/money consuming

2001 Ford Taurus No Heat I am having trouble with


possibly the bled door is stuck open so only the cold air from a/c works when on defrost vs closing to allow heat to cycle through the system as defrost runs through the a/c system

2003 ford taurus heater fan worked fine last night but won't come on at all today.


I do not understand why people will continue to operate a vehicle when they know there is an obvious problem. They ignore check engine lights until the engine stops running altogether and then are "surprised" when they get stranded in the middle of the expressway in rush hour traffic. Then they blame it on the car!!!

In your case, you have ignored the warning signs of your blower motor failing ("making noise for a couple months"?) and now you are dumfounded as to why your blower motor now does not work at all.....I don't get it....!???

REPLACE YOUR BLOWER MOTOR!

I have a 1990 Ford Taurus and my blinkers don't


blinkers sounds like the flasher unit is not working. It's located under dash. Also check for burnt out bulbs.
Rear defrost, or rear defogger?: Your defogger for the rear window would run off a relay, probably located in the fuse panel of your car. Often, the connections at the rear window get broke or disconnected.
Front defrost: does your heater blower work?

Our 98 ford taurus heater and a/cdoes not work we can hear the vacume ingage but nothing works


these are two diff systems working of the same control. Heater first, do you hear the fan running with the heater on all speeds, does any air come out of vents? Is it hot air? If you have air flow can you adjust it to defrost or floor?

How to get air out of a 2001 ford taruse after changeing heater hose.where is the bleeding screw


Just leave rad cap off, make sure heater is turned on (not defrost) and let engine run until rad fan kicks on and off 2or 3 times, which indicates thermostat has opened and coolant has flowed through rad, or watch in rad for a good increase in flow, when up to operating temperature, which would mean the same thing. Top coolant up during, as needed. After that, put rad cap back on, top up return bottle to proper level, and you should be good. Be patient though, it could take a half hour or so from start to finish.
