96 Taurus - Coolant flow direction

Which way does the coolant flow in the 1996 Ford Taurus with 3.0 L V6 OHV engine? Does it flow from: 1) thermistat -----> heater core -----> water pump
or 2) water pump -----> heater core -----> thermistat
Thanks in advance,
Phil

In every freakin car I ever owned, from NEAR thermostat to heater to water pump Note that flow is not regulated by Tstat
Note that for efficient heater operation, it's important for the source hose to connect to the BOTTOM of the core in order to purge air.
