Default No Heat

I have a 2001 Limited Edition PT that has little to no interior heat. Any suggestions?

Move down here...don't need no stinkin heat other than what's outside.

Seriously, you could have air trapped in the anti-freeze system, a stuck lever that switches from cold to hot, a stuck open thermostat that not letting the water heat up.

I agree with CREWZIN.. The little i know about cars.. If you can't do it yourself, take it to a good mechanic.. Dealers suck.

Is the temp gauge at the 1/2 way mark? If it is, chances are thermostat is okay.
Antifreeze in overflow bottle? If not, you could have air in system.

Seems to me no heat in the interior means heater core problem or at the very least no water in the heater core. Another thing could be that your vacuum controled doors are not working and you are not routing the hot air anywhere. Does the interior fan go on and can you hear your doors operating??

If one doesnt hear the doors operating , what is this a indicator of? I just picked my PT up. It no longer overheats since a new fan, then a thermostat and radiator put on. Now I have no heat!

I had the same problem with my old Focus - turned out to be an extremely dirty heater core. Had a mechanic friend remove the heater core from the car and flush it out and presto - seriously burning heat like the car had never put out before! Car was a 2000 model and the flush was done late 2010 so after 10 years I'd expect that thing to need a cleaning - watch out thou cause the shop I was taking the Focus to just wanted to replace the heater core which translated into big bucks while having an experienced mechanic friend work on it only cost me a few lunches...
