no heat in cabin

I have a 97 taurus 3litre v6 with 130000km and I recently changed the thermostat because I thought is was the reason why I didn't get any heat in the cabin but this did not help. There is mild heat coming in but thats it. The motor heats up just fine and the blower motor is pushing the air fine as well. The only idea I have would be that the door flap is no closing properly when I do turn on the heat. The door actuator seems to be working fine and the heat core is not leaking. I am stumped. Can somebody help, it would be greatly apprieciated.
Thanks
Dan

Re: no heat in cabin

Same problem I have with my 93 Taurus wagon. See 2 posts below! Nice and warm inside the cabin if the engine is running and the car is not moving. But as soon as the water cooler gets loads of cool air the inside temperature drops.
I have now covered the water cooler with carton board which brings me up to 12 degree C above outside temperature. Next I will close the entire air inlet - see what that buys in addition.
I have not replaced the thermo swich yet, because I dont know where it is - tbh... BUt if it didnt help you, it wount help me.

I have no idea what to do next.

Hey Dan just finished working on my 98.had the same problem the valve that blocks the water from circulating through the heater core when the heat is off was stuck closed.It's in the center of the dash almost at the floorboard it's covered by a metal cover by two screws take it off and shake it some to see if it will open up.You may have to spary it with a little wd40 hope this helps your problem mailman3

Re: no heat in cabin

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus with 45,000 miles on it. I bought it new 7 years ago. Last year I had to have the steering rack replaced. Also, last winter my heater stared to give me trouble. It would blow warm air but never get hot. I recently took it to a shop that specializes in radiator and heater repairs, they blew out the heater core and now it is operating as it did when it was new, plenty of heat. It cost me $70 this was the best money that I ever spent.
