Why do you not heat in a 2000 Mercury Sable after changing the thermostat?

If this happened immediately after changing the thermostat, then the most likely problem is the thermostat was installed backwards.The spring side of the thermostat faces the engine. It's the spring that is reacting to the coolant temperature and driving the valve to open/close.When the thermostat cannot open, that prevents any coolant from ever getting to the heater core. Thus, you shiver a lot!Pop it out, flip it over and you should be all sorts of warm and cozy.See "Related Questions" below for more

Why is the main top hose from the radiator to the engine blowing up like a balloon?

More than likely, the thermostat is stuck. The thermostat is a valve that is supposed to allow water from the radiator to flow through the engine block. As the temperature rises, the thermostat opens and water from the radiator flows through the engine block and draws off heat. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the water cannot flow, no matter how hot it gets. The pressure builds and the upper radiator hose can expand to a point. Eventually the hose will rupture. Have an experienced mechanic replace the thermostat and the hose.
