Just check to see clutch kicking in. First then will know of leak in system. Or high low pressure switch. Check power at clutch if not check fuse!

I know this sounds silly, but a common fault with the Fords of this era was the heater control solonoids, basically electrically controlled valves that had a tendancy to stick open slightly, costantly allowing hot coolant into the heater matrix. This is usually found close to the bulkhead , with the heater in the cold position start the car allow to reach normal running temperature and cautiously check to see if the rubber hose is the same temperature both sides of the valve, if it is your valve is not sealing properly and should be replaced, a relatively inexpensive item Approx £35 for the part and no more than an hours labour!!
