I have a 1996 Windstar van. A few days ago the heater stopped working. When my husband got home he checked the coolant level which was good and drove the car and it started to register hot. When this happened coolant started to bubble out.(Of the place you put coolant in) he turned the car off right away.(He was back home and pulled it in the garage). (He didnt drive it hot). Had a friend come over and put on a new themostat. I had heat after a few minutes of driving it and the car never got hot. The next time I went to drive it I didnt have any heat again. The car is not getting hot when I drive it but still no heat. The friend also noticed that the radiator fans come on the minute I start the car and stay on. Not sure if this could be the problem. Background on this car is. I only drive this car to work which is a total of 10 miles. (Dont trust it to go too far). The abs, brake light, and check engine light have been on for a couple of years now. I dont want to put alot of money in this car because of it being so old. Any suggestions as to why I have no heat. Thanks in advance for your response.
