2003 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 77000 miles
I own a 2003 Mercury Sable. My car WILL NOT put out heat. When I turn the dial (inside the car) to the first option on the left, the car will put out some warm-to-cool air. If I turn the dial to the right (any option), the car will put out cool air only.
I've tried flushing the radiator; replacing the thermastat; and making sure all the "tubes" (for lack of a better word) are clear and the heater core is working. The heat still won't work. Also, the car IS NOT building up pressure. I've tried replacing the cap on the antifreeze reservoire. Nothing is working.
My "handy man" mechanic thinks the heater control valve (that switches from cold to hot) needs to be replaced. He's trying to find out where this valve is located on the engine.
Can you help?
What do you think seems to be the problem?
have the same problem?
