1999 Ford Taurus from North America
Heater stopped working. Would get hot for a few seconds, then cool off.
A solution found after several wrong efforts.
New water pump - wrong!!!
New thermostat - wrong!!!
Temperature control motor under the dash - wrong!!!
Correct answer!!! Stopped up heater coil. Pinched off bypass hose with c-clamp next to fire wall to start flush attempt. Took hose loose at water pump and at thermostat. Flushed with garden water hose back and forth several times. Big time rust came out from the engine casting. Yeah!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
