Heater problem
2002 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130.00 miles

Why isn't my heat coming out very hot, and it seems that the blower isn't blowing full when on heat?
I have flushed the radiator, and changed the thermostat to a 180. What else can I do? Thank you!

Thermostat should be what the manufacture call for ,or it will cause a check engine light later on .
start engine and warm up
check under hood by the fire wall heater hoses in and out if both hot they should if not u need to flush the heater core

Engine cool
lower the coolant level
Locate the two hoses running to the heater core
disconnect them at the engine side leaving hoses connected to heater core throw the firewall
use garden water hose and compressed air if possible
run the water and follow by air throw one side and out the other and vice versa
do that two to three times watching what leaving the heater core you are looking for the good flow and clear water to run throw
good luck
let me know
