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.

My 2001 ford Taurus does not have heat, or front defrost. But my back defrost works. No matter what setting it's on, it blows cold air. I can't recall it even working this past summer with ac. I just...

The back or rear defrost is an electric grid that works independently of the heater. If replacing the thermostat produced heat, you would seemed to have solved the problem but the heater blower could still be at fault. If you can't detect warm air actually blowing into your Taurus the blower is a likely suspect. A faulty blower also would affect your A/C.

under the passenger side of the dash right above the passengers feet. With the key on and the blower set to high tap the end of the blower motor with a screwdriver. If it starts to work replace it.

I have a 2001 Taurus and the heater isn't working,

You might want to check the temperature control switch. I have a problem with mine and believe that is the problem. My switch just goes round and round. If you are careful you can find a spot that produces heat.

2000 Pontiac Grand AM little heat being produced.

1st thing to do is change the thermostat. It is either missing, or stuck open (you provide good info). This is why the car is not running at operating temp and why you have little heat. The no blower for settings 1-4 probably means a bad switch.

If you can, check if there is voltage at the blower motor connector with the ignition on and the engine not running. If you have voltage, the blower is bad. If no voltage, it may be a bad blower switch, the blower motor resistor assembly, or the wiring between them.

The resistor assembly is on the evaporator housing under the dash on the passenger side and near the blower motor. The glove box must be removed to check this and the blower. A thermal limiter resistor is built into the resistor assembly and will open, ie melt, with excessive heat.

Without more details on this, it appears either your blower motor or the blower motor resistor assembly is bad.
