Engine Cooling problem
1994 Ford Escort 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 180000 miles
Car will not heat up, replaced the thermostat and still no change. The hose coming from the thermostat to radiator is hot to touch, hose from radiator to engine is warm, hoses to heater coil slightly warm. After a internet search I found this " water outlet has a plastic bypass valve inside of it that has likely melted and is allowing water around the thermostat which essentially keeps it open. &Quot; The temperture gauge goes only slightly above cold, and heater will blow warm air for a minute or so, then gets cold again. When I replaced the thermostat I did notice what sounded like a ball rolling around in the housing while cleaning it. Any help would be great, thanks in advance.
