Hi there:

If your Ford Explorer is not overheating, then it’s likely that the heater core might be damaged or there is some debris inside the core that is causing this issue. Other likely problems would cause the vehicle to overheat; so you might want to have a professional mechanic complete heater is not working inspection to determine what is causing this issue to happen, so the right repairs can be made.
