my theory is when u accellerate, ur water pupm pumps the water round ur engine at a higher speed than normal. as ur engine is just "tickin over" the pump is still pumpin water round the engine but the engine is working less so produces less heat therefore, water cools by the time it gets to heater matrix as it flows slower. i might be wrong but that's the theory i have had for over a year n im yet to see a different explanation to why it happens.

heater will not blow on a 1996 ford contour

if the heater does not blow out warm air change the setting.

The heater does not blow air because it emits infrared rays that have heat molecules within them, thus releasing heat, not blowing it. A heater does not blow air becasue there is no moving air source within the heater. The heater emits infrered rays that cause heat to slowly flow out of the heater.

When you have the heater on, does it just blow any air at all? or no air?

It doesn't really blow it out it just warms the cold air.

You can be depressed at that age. It just depends on how your life is affected. If they are looking for attention, this will blow over soon.

If the heater fails to "blow," then the fan motor (situated on the fire wall inside the engine compartment) is disconnected or has failed and should be reconnected or replaced. But, before either of those, check the heater fan fuse, replace if blown, and re-try the heater.

Blocked heater core, faulty heater valve, disconnected connection to the heater valve.
