Location of Heater Core in a 2002 Ford Taurus


There was a question in this forum as to the location of the heater core on a 2002 Ford Taurus. Since I can't find who asked, the location is behind the dash so if you want to replace it you would have to remove the dash completely. A mechanic shop will charge you for a 2 day job approximately $700 to $800.

What is a ballpark figure for replacing a 2002 Ford Taurus thermostat?


stat is like 8 bucks,labor should not be more than 40 (at my shop)
worried the heater core may be the problem tho.
That is a very costly job.Try this,put a "winter front " on the
car,piece of cardboard in front of the rad.
I am assuming this car has no temp. gauge,so the winter front
will make the water temp go way up,if the heater works after like 5
miles of driving ,cool, the stat is bad,if the heater still doesn't work
the heater core is bad. The whole dashboard has to come out for the
heater core ,yuk
Don't drive more than like 20 miles with the radiator covered,just
to be safe,

I have a customers 2002 Ford Taurus that has a problem with very little heat to the interior. We tried simple fixes like a new thermostat and also found the cabin filter plugged. I now have good airflow...


Have you considered flushing out the cooling system?? I think if the heater core is plugged up with a film internal your not going to get efficient heat

If there is play in the box,where the heater core is,or the heater hose lines are not supported to keep them from putting pressure on the heater core this will happen.

HEATER


Check the coolant level.Feel the heater hoses going to the heater core to see if they are warm,or hot.If one of them is warm,or hot,and the other is not,remove the heater hoses,and flush the heater core out with a water hose.Bleed the coolant system,and you might want to install a new thermostat while you are at it.

2002 Ford Taurus has no heat


Look for a blocked heater hose (kinked, pinched, or collapsed), or a valve (either electrically or vacuum controlled) in the line that isn't opening. Feel both hoses when the engine is hot and set for heat. One should be hot and the other cooler when operating normally. If both are cool, then something is blocking water flow through the heater core.

Heater blows cold air.


heater cores clog in taurus. way to know is this--engine fully hot--heat on reach down to the fire wall and grab hold of one of the heater hoses where it hooks to the core--one should be real hard to keep hold of because its that hot. If the other is close to the same the core is not clogged. But if the other is cold to the touch its clogged. You can remove the hoses and shoot garden hose water in one side or the other and break it loose usually
