You may have a failed heater control valve, stuck open. It is on the firewall to the left of the intake manifold, you'll see the hoses going in and out of it. They factory pieces are pricey, about $325! You can get around that by using a Motorcraft YG-368 replacement and installing it with the hose slightly turned.
