If the engine is not over heating than most lilely it isn't the thermostat or waterpump that is causing the problem. Check the heater hose coming out of the manifold and see if it is warm to hot. Next check the return line from the heater if it is still cold or moch cooler than the inlet, the most possible problem is the heater water control valve if this model has one or possible the core of the heater is plugg with slime cause by some antifreezes setting during the summer months while not being used. If this is the case than remove tihe two hoses and back flush the heater core with water pressure until it runs clear. I have had this problem before and this cured my problem. I also had to flush the engine and radatior also. Hope this help. .

When you let coolant out of system the level dropped below heads . this caused an air bubble in heads and or motor. when you go down the road the extra pressure of the water pump takes up the slack but at idle you are dealing with an air bubble that does not transfer heat

No heat air blows just cold air


Let car cool down then check coolant level. If it is low it won't allow coolant to pass through the heater core. If it is ok it could be stuck thermostat or bad heater core. If lines coming out of heater core are hot on both hoses it is good, if only one is hot then it is a plugged heater core. You can take hoses off and use a water hose to flush out heater core from one hose then back the other way through the other hose. Hope this helps!

No heat or very little heat in a 2001 blazer and iv tried everything ...it will blow some heat then go cold


Bad coolant flow. check for low coolant, also a thermostat could be restricting proper coolant flow. If coolant is full in the radiator than touch your upper radiator hose to see if it is hot. If their is proper coolant level and engine is warmed up to temp and radiator hose is cold replace your thermostat.

Hot air is blowing cold in my 2001 ford escort flight


check coolant level first. possible bad thermostat, blockage, heater core is bad. check to see if a hose going into heater core is hot, if the hose is hot and the other is cold you have a blockage in heater core. if so, sometimes you can remove the hose from heater core and flush it out with a garden hose. if above fails, flush whole system.

NO HEAT BLOWING COLD AIR


Make sure the coolant level is full. If coolant levels are ok you made need to replace the thermostat .You can disconnect the heater hoses going to the heater core and flushing water through with a garden hose at low pressure. If the vehicle has the 4.3L engine these are quite prone to heater cores plugging up. Would try flushing the heater core first.If that does not work most likely the thermostat is causing your issue. Be sure to fill coolant back up after servicing and allow air to bleed from the cooling system.

Engine temp is up but the heat is blowing cold. what should i check?


Check the level of the antifreeze (coolant) in your reservoir. If it is just a little low, it will not flow properly through the heater core.

If the coolant level is ok, check the temperature of the hoses going in and out of the heater core. Your Taurus is not equipped with a heater control valve, so there should be hot coolant circulating through the heater core at all times. If one hose is really hot and the other feels cool or cold, then your heater core is most likely clogged with corrosion and debris. (If this is the case, I recommend a complete cooling system flush)

If both hoses are hot, then there is a problem with the blend-air door inside the car. It could be a broken door or a malfunctioning blend-air door actuator.

Heater blows hot air when driving but blows cold air when idiling


A low coolant level will do this as well as a thermostat being stuck in the open position cure is to replace the thermostat another cause is low coolant flow through the heater core and could be partially plugged flushing the heater core will fix this condition hope this helps
