No Heat

Please help, I cannot figure out why my heat wont work. I have a 2001 taurus ses, the heat warms up a little bit only if the car is sitting still, while driving it never warms at all like the cold air cools down the coolant in the radiator. I installed a new radiator a couple months ago, a heater core like two years ago, a thermostat a few months ago, and made sure the coolant was full. I checked the heater core hoses with a laser thermometer both sides were over 200 F. Blend doors appear to be working fine. I really dont know what else to do. Any help would be much appreciated

If inlet and outlet pipes to the heater core are not showing a temp drop, then the core is either plugged up with debris or has an air pocket.

Well yeah, the Duratec is all aluminum. Iron block and heads + time = erosion. If you don't change the coolant it will catch up. Not that the Duratec is immune mind you, I've replaced the heater core in a 'Tec before.

If the heater core was replaced because of being plugged and a full block flush with removing freeze pulls like Ford has indicated in their procedure then it could be pulling again. The blocks have been known to a lot of casting sand that will pull heater cores. I found that the pluggage I got out was mostly non magnetic material.


You may want to try to do a reverse flush with compressed air to flush the core.
