Sounds like your water pump is gone. Water pumps the water thru the heater which you said it is not getting hot and the engine is overheating because the water pump is NOT pumpin ghte water around thru the heater thru the engine and thru the radiator. It doesn't have to leak to tell you it is bad. The impellor on the back of the pump may be frozen, did you see if the pulley is frozen on the pump? Is your belt tight? All the answers are good, I will just add it could be your themostat. It sounds like there is a problem in the head or heads,it does not have to steam out the exhaust for a head to be cracked in the exhaust chamber around the guide or under the valve. Exhaust gases leak into the water jackets of engine therefore causeing air to get in the heater core and air locking it. hot exhaust gas heats the water up a lot hotter then normal engine running does.water can't flow now,so no heat. your not letting it idle long enough to get hot. and when driveing engine RPMs or higher and things are happen faster (more friction) heat opens cracks. therefore engine overheats.
heater will not blow on a 1996 ford contour
The heater in your car uses waste heat from the engine to heat the car. When the engine is not running there is no heat to distribute.
It could be either a bad water pump or a clogged hose or a bad heater core or it could be a clogged or bad radiator.
The heater switch on a 1996 Ford Contour is under the passenger side dash. It is located behind the glove box.
If the heater blower has humming noise when motor is running, first check its capacitor. If the capacitor is fine, then the motor is the problem and may need to be replaced.
Yes , a 1995 Ford Contour should have a heater core . It is used to warm the air ( if necessary ) that comes in to the passenger compartment of the vehicle
Defective heater resistor pack.
Answerheater core will most likely be the problem Answerheater core will most likely be the problem Had same problem. Is your temp gauge reading normal? If temp gauge is reading low after driving awhile, may be the thermostat stuck open. If so, easier fix than heater coil.
I own a 1997 Ford Contour and there was a recall a few years ago on the heater blower and resistor. Check out the recalls on the car.
Do you have a pool heater? The oil could be "white oil," a refined mineral oil. Indicates a problem with the heat exchanger. Your heater doesn't need to be running for this problem to occur.
Most likely an air pocket.While your'e driving or while the motor is running put your heater on high(hot air) and after a while the air pocket will be gone.I had the same problem after changing a rad hose and during a two hour road trip ran the heater and everything was ok afterwards
There are signs that there is a problem with a hot water heater. When you cannot get your water to heat. It could be signs that the pipes leading to the heater are leaking. It could be a problem with the thermostat in the heater.
Car will make when running even if heater core is not burned out.
A car heater taps off engine heat. If you aren't driving, then the engine is cold and there's no heat for the car heater to use.
Your windows fog up horribly and sometimes you can hear what sounds like water running through your dash when your driving.
is the blower motor running? or is it just not blowing hot air?
Thermostat probably needs to be replaced.
It is possible a little low on coolant and has an air bubble in the heater core.
you need to replace your heater core
Water heater fan? I have never seen a "water heater" with a fan. Possible a boiler, hot water heating system. Assuming you are talking about a "water heater" in a house. Please give a little more information on where it is and what it is intended to do.
Bad blower resistor. I just replaced mine.
Not enough info. Car heater? House heater? Gas? electric? Water?
You have to turn the heater on, by running to the right on it.
Take both heater hoses off at the heater and the hose running from the front, attach it to the rear of the engine.
Because the heater pulls the heat off of the motor and uses fans to circulate it to you
