    No heat

    I'm gonna try one last thing tonight. Maybe there is an air lock. So the coolant goes through the bypass but wont go down the heater core line because of resistance from the air lock. Sounds logical, so I'm gonna disconnect both hoses from the heater core, pour coolant in one end until it fills heater core and comes out the other end of the hose. Was talking to someone this morning and its something I never considered.

    I'm gonna change it anyway I guess and I'll share my results when I'm done.

    The car never overheats and I've checked all hoses for obstructions. Thermostat is good, fluid level is good. I flushed heater core twice, and I even put a new one in afterward just to be sure. The bypass hose seems to always be hot but heatr core never sees much coolant. Could the water pump be just good enough so that the car never overheats but not strong to get through the heater core. Has anyone seen this. It seems like the waterpump is the only thing left. Also, the actuator vents are fine. I flushed the system 4 times over 2 days with rad flush and water. There was some crap at first bu

    All of a sudden my taurus has no heat and the winter is here. I've been through everything. Is it possible for a water pump to be bad and the vehicle never overheats?

    I was very fortunate to have the 2 days where it stayed above zero Celsius, so I put in prestone rad flush and flushed it out 4 times with water over a couple days of running the car. It never overheated once. There was a lot of crap in the system initially but its very clean now. It is a very weird problem.

    Sorry. I meant the car not overheat. The car never overheats and I've checked all hoses for obstructions. Thermostat is good, fluid level is good. I flushed heater core twice, and I even put a new one in afterward just to be sure. The bypass hose seems to always be hot but heatr core never sees much coolant.

Also, the actuator vents are fine. The heater core just doesn't get hot.
