Heater blows cold air when stopped or ideling

Asked by Jan 02, 2013 at 02:35 PM about the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2010 Ford Taurus SHO and am having problems with the heater. When the car is sitting still, it blows cold air but as long as you are traveling it blows warm. If you stop at a red light or stop for any reason, it will begin blowing cold air again. Have had it back to the dealer and they can not figure it out.

If the dealer can't figure it out... The cold air is because there is not enough water flowing through the heater core. The car is too new to have a worn pump but it could be a slipping belt. I'm sure that the temperature is normal & thermostat checked and all the usual causes in a older car.
