2003 Taurus no heat

Asked by Nov 17, 2016 at 03:07 PM about the 2003 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have great a/c, but no heat. I noticed my temp
gauge stays at C on the dashboard most of the
time, but if I drive over an hour it'll move up a little.
No more than a third of the way up. Any ideas?

The C would mean cold. I think you need a new thermostat. I would get a 190 degree one.

Thanks! Would a bad thermostat cause my issue with no heat?

The purpose of a thermostat is to regulate the engine operating temperature. If it is stuck open it will make the car run too cool and you won't get any heat.

Replace thermostat and make sure coolant is circulating though the heater core

I would say someone removed the thermostat
