Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
I've been having trouble with the heater on the car for awhile the head gaskets been replaced as well as the thermostat the garage said they flushed the radiator twice but still have almost no heat so I was wondering where the heater coil is and how to see if its good or bad
I suggest you get one of those manuals people get nowadays to do it yourself.. My nephew use it to repair
my car and it's totally repaired now. Here's the website he got it from. www.reliable-store.com

SOURCE: Coolant Problems
Hi there. It sounds like you have done the most obvious checks and I can assure you by-passing the heater core will have no effect. There are three possible causes that you need to investigate further and you will need specialist equipment for it - you either have a hair-line crack in the head or cylinder wall or it might be that the head bolts are stretched and therefore weakened and so need replacement. To help you identify these aforementioned possible problems, you might need a specialist fluid that you put into the cooling system which changes colour when combustion chamber pressure enters the cooling system, you need to contact your local Ford Dealer for this - but then you still have the three possible problems to deal with - cracked cylinder wall/s, cracked head or stretched head bolts. Hope this helps, Scottech.

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Taurus, no heat.
Try checking the two pipes that go into and come out of the heater matrix, is one of them hot? if it is there is an air lock within the matrix, Also is the thermostat opening fully? Sorry i know you said you have changed it twice already but take it out check settings when it should open and close, then boil some water and test the thermostat
