Heating Taurus '99 is not working

Who know where to look for?
I have a Taurus '99 and there is no heat coming into my car.
The AC works OK and the fan is blowing normal.
The engine temp is normale and there is enough "water" in the system.
If I turn the switch to cool it get cooler so it look the switch is working
too.
The system did work normal last winter.

Jurgen.

And what does the coolant look like? Is it clear or 'muddy' looking?

Your web page explanation of the problem left off something very important.
The water pump is not the cause of the problem, only a symptom. A poorly
designed cooling system was the problem.

The TSB issued for the problem had the dealer install a bypass kit that
re-routed the coolant in order to correct a condition where the water would
cavitate instead of flow. This cavitation caused massive amounts of
corrosion.

I just learned about all this Saturday when I forked over $950 for
installation of the bypass kit, all new freeze plugs and a new water pump.
The second pump in 13 months. My daughter arrived home from college on
Wednesday trailing a plume of steam behind her. Luckily the freeze plugs
didn't give way till she was a block from the house.
