Did you realize that your heater is actually designed for cooling an engine? It is built with a heat exchanger generally known as the Ford Contour heater core. This is primarily a little radiator. It works to collect hot coolant coming out from the engine into its inlet , and then, uses the fins to magnify heat transfer to the air from the fan. This can both heat the passenger cabin and cool an engine.
The Ford Contour heater core is situated underneath the instrument cluster. It is made from both brass or aluminum lines within a protective layer of fins. It is connected to the engine and to the air vents of the car via inlet and outlet lines. The amount of heat that's vented in the passenger interior is typically managed through a level right on the dashboard.
Gradually, this part is going to get damaged. Changing your Ford Contour heater core with the exact match will restore the heater's performance. Parts Train distributes OES Genuine, Vista-Pro Automotive, or Replacement heater core replacement products for you to select from.
