My heat in my ford windstar isn't blowing in the car. The a/c blows and works great. I have replaced the whole heater thing that allows you to move it from the blue to the red and a heater coil but still cold air. Please help me

Have you checked the blend air door? Are you getting cold air to blow in the vehicle?

I have changed the whole piece that switches from the blue to red the heater panel thing and the heater coil. The guy said that the heater module, actuator and blend door was working you can hear it switch over when you switch from cold to hot. Yes cold air blows into the car its kind of luke warm. I turned the a/c button on that's real cold so there is a difference in the feel of the air.

Okay. With the engine running, hot, and the heater on high, do both heater core hoses get hot?

I wouldn't even know where that is lol. My husband said he thinks there has to be a hose that may be leaking. Im really not trying to pay the dealer a arm n leg to do something simple. I had it on high as I drove home yesterday I felt a little heat but Im not sure if that's just the heat off the motor or what. But I will check that hose thing out

My 2000 Ford Windstar LX will only blow cold air out of the front heater. It will blow hot out of the rear air. It has a thumping sound coming from the dashboard. What is the problem?

Your temp blend door is stuck! The electric servo for that door can't move it and will die trying! Get under there and rescue it!

1998 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

I have replaced the heater coil, thermostat, core pack, hoses, control panels etc. My heater still blows cold air unless im reving the engine. Only then does it blow warm. What could be the problem?

I had the same problem with my 98 windstar. It was caused by low, very low coolant level. I would fill the radiator, and the overflow tank and the heat worked great for a week or two, until it lost all the coolant again. Mine turned out to be a clogged radiator that was showing normal coolant temp, but was letting the coolant boil out while I was driving (never saw coolant under the van). Try topping off the radiator and the overflow and take it for a drive. You should have heat. If it loses all the coolant again I would recommend replacing the radiator (mine was 99$ at Autozone).

heater blows cold air. I was told by mechanic that core needed to be replaced, but ford only sells core as part of entire heating unit at about $500 plus $700 labor. Thermostat and antifreeze ok. Please help

Mode door actuator was replaced, but heater case is cracked. Said ford only sells entire unit. They epoxied case, said that might not work. It worked for a couple months.

If the car is getting warm on the temp gauge then you have a blend door problem.

Trying to save my parents some money on a handicap vehicle they bought for transporting my sister. The rear of van has great heat, the front has none. I replace the heat door actuator, the old one had stripped gears. Before putting in the new I made sure it moved Greeley and sprung back. Put in new one and stil no heat up front. Pulled new one to make sure it didn't strip, which it didn't. Put it back in again and still no heat. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Did you check voltage circuits at actuator? I looked at info for blend door actuator. Red wire goes hot with key on and it is fused circuit. The black wire is ground, check it the way you would any ground. The gray wire comes from control module, It appears to be a variable resistance circuit, Depending on how you turn the knob, the resistance on that circuit goes up or down.
