Does your truck have a clutch fan? Ive had the clutch go bad causing the fan to stay engaged all the time. That might do it.

Thats what happened to mine. It stays engaged and is constantly working. Have the new clutch, just gotta put it on.

i just had this same problem, and changed 3 thermostats and changed the heater core and still had no heat but one heater core hose would get warm and the other one wouldnt. it turned out to just be the radiator cap..... it was old and wasnt letting the sysytem pressureize so Ford told me, anyways i bout a new cap $15 bucks at Ford. and had heat within 10 mins of leaving the parking lot, its a cheap try , i wouldn of thought the cap would of made a difference
