Two things,

one the air does not pass thru the heater coil.
check the vanes of the dust if it is opening and closing as you switch the levers.

2nd the water valve to the core does not open to let the hot water in to the core.

check the valve if it is stuck close. feel the hose if it is getting warm as water passes thru.

tnx 4 using fixya,

No heat blowing cold air.


Do you smell coolant inside of the vehicle. If so then chances are your heater core is going.

2008 Jeep Liberty-My heater was barely warm-blowing fine tho. Was told I had a plugged heater core and needed a new one. Had a new heater core put in and then my air conditioner stopped blowing cold air....


I woild be checking the vent controls as if the ac is working and the core was blocked then the air would be cool when the heat was selected but not changing Fixing the heater has resulted in a /c not being good enough to cool the air if the vent is not properly selecting. The point is that if the vent selection is not working properly (vacuum hoses) then the 2 faults will be related.

I put a new heater core in my blazer and now the heater is blowing cold air why?


You need to verify that warm coolant is getting to the heater core by touching the hoses going into the firewall. If they are both the same temp or close, you might have a blend door actuator broken or sticking that does not direct warm air into cabin area

Even though I let my car run for 20 minutes to warm it up, when I get in the heater is still blowing out cool air. When I start driving, it blows out warm air. But when I stop for a stop sign or light,...


check the heater hoses going from motor thru firewall to heater core / if they get warmer when motor is at 2000 rpms or higher then most likely problem is heater core stopped up / if the hoses dont change then thermostat could be stuck open ! good luck

Mazda323f 1990.heater working bad,and to feet blouing cold air.how to fix.


The heater core can be stopped up or thier might not be enought coolant in the system as it has to be full for the heater to heat. The engine also has to warm up so if the therromstate were opening too much and the engine does'nt warm up the water will be too cold and the heat won't work. Remove the heater hoses at the motor conections and blow them though If they are Ok they'll blow though real easy. The cars cooling system does'nt blow very hard and is stopped up real easy. Blowing though with a garden hose reconnect and refill with antifreeze and your good to go. If it does'nt have enough antifrezze it could be frozen and the ice won't cicculate. If this has happened you may need to put the car in a garage to warm it up drain the light antifreeze coolant and put in good coolant withthe right amount of antifreeze.

Look for a heater valve on one of the hoses if there is no valve i would say its a plugged heater core.

My 2001 GMC Jimmy is not blowing warm/hot air. The temperature is slightly elevated but not overheating. When going uphill sometimes will blow warm air but for short period of time. Coolant levels are...


Let the vehicle warm up to normal operating temprature, touch the heater hoses going into the firewall to the heater core, they should both be hot, if only one is hot the heater core is stopped up. If this is the case you will want to try flushing it before you replace it. If you have to replace it be prepaired to spend $400.00 or more depending on shop rates. NOTE: BE CAREFULL WHEN CHECKING HEATER HOSES YOU COULD GET BURNED! Thanks and good luck with your repair.
