Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
If heater core is plugged up with rust particles - typical with this car - do a separate heater core flush.
The Next year, I had low heat / not enough heat again. Isolate heater core only, did flush again myself, seemed clean, then, poured through mix of 1/3 CLR (Calcium Lime Rust remover product) and hot water for 15 min max (needed only about 2 litres/quarts of solution), then flush out w/clean water, then re-fill/pour in 50/50 antifreeze and distilled water. Had FULL heat again. Good. Needed full heat for defrosting/deicing in winter.
I think the isolated heater core FLUSH / 15 min CLR solution / FLUSH / refill 50/50 is going to have to be an annual event each FALL Autumn for me.

The heater core may very well be plugged and in need of replacement. a repair centre can confirm that.
