MERCURY MARQUIS HEATER PROBLEM

1997 Mercury Marquis • 210,000 miles

Defrost, vent and or heater will blow warm then hot air until the car reacheds normal operating temperature then it only blows cold air- a feew times it has switched back to hot for a few months, have replaced thermostate, flushed heater core- was clean- unable to find a heater control valve- not sure it has one or not- autoparts stores sell one- unable to located it- don't think it is a blend door because it does blow hot for awhile- unable to find a vaccum leak.

Sounds like the inside car temp sensor is bad or dirty, it is very hard to find behind the dash about the middle behind or on top of the heater box. Thanks for using 2CarPros
