'95 Escort no heat

I just aquired this car and realized the heater only blew out cold/warm air. Both upper and lower radiator hose along with heater hoses get warm to the touch. Is there a cable that control temp or what moves the temp control valve.

There is a cable that operates the door.

Re: '95 Escort no heat

If the problem is not related to the cable it could be a thermostat that's stuck open, a clogged heater core or the thermostat housing has a plastic ball inside of it that is designed to melt and allow the water to by-pass the thermostat if the engine overheats, it's pretty common for this ball to melt or get damaged allowing the water to bypass the thermostat and the engine to take a very long time to come up to temperature. Good luck.

Re: '95 Escort no heat

thanks for all thegreat info. I took the t-stat housing off and found only on bolt holding it on, it was held togsther with RTV. That caused the t-stat to break apart and block the heater hose port. With that fixed and engine finally cooling correctly i still had no heat. I manually turned te cam tothe heater door and got hot air to blow out of vent. Also i fixed the bad housing bolts holes in the head. Now i need to see if its a bad cable or control head.
