I have a 97 f150 that done the samething. Try flushing the heater core. The 4.6 is bad about getting air-locked in the main hose that goes to the radiator. If the hose is real tight just unscrew the cap and let pressure out. Overfill the tank with extra and it will work the air out by overflowing the overflow tank.Hope this helps.

Hi guys I am new on this, I will start all over, I got this big problem for me, I got this 2002 huyndai elantra gt, 1 week ago I was driving and the heat stopped working, no radiator leak, everything...


Ok, here is my take on your problem. As you may already know, it takes a car a few min. to actually warm up to operating temp. When the coolent reaches operating temp. the thermostat opens to circulate the coolent in the radiator. Now, as your drive, the air pushing against your car will actually blow some air through your heating system ducts and into the passenger compartment. Is it possible that your blower fan isn't working? Because while you are stopped, there would be no air forcing its way through your ducts, thus no heat. As your drive, your car gets up to operating temp, heats up, and the air pressure as your drive will blow some heat out into the passenger compartment? On a side note, if your thermostat is stuck in the open position, it would take it forever to warm up since it is circulating ALL the coolent even tho it isn't at operating temp. A thermostat stuck open will take 30 min or more before you actually feel any warmth, if at all in the winter.. your thermostat opens and closes constantly as the engine is running to keep it at its normal temp, usually around 160-180 degrees. If you live where it gets really cold, a thermostat stuck open likely will never get warm. If your blower motor works, and your engine don't overheat, im 98% sure its your thermostat.

My Venture overheated and I get cold air in passenger compartment when it is supposed to be heating


Normally, if an engine is running hot and the heater is blowing cold air that means that the coolant level is low. Make sure the radiator and overflow bottle are full. Leave the cap loose for a day or two and keep topping up the coolant level. This should bleed out any air and give you back your heat. If it is still running hot then you will probably have to change the thermostat. It should be changed every couple years irregardless if it is still working. Hope this helps.

My 2003 pontiac bonneville will not blow hot air, I have it on max heat and I still get cold air. I recently changed the water pump becuase it was going out. there also is no water leak on my passenger...


you didnt mention changing the thermostat, common culprit of this problem, the thermostat is in the waterneck at the motor end of the top radiator hose, easy fix, be sure to use new waterneck gasket when putting back together

The heater blows cold looking for heater fuse or selenoid to try to fix


if the heater is blowing cold then it is not a fuse
it is probably your thermostat or heater core
but i will change the thermostat first
and bleed the heating system also

Replace thermostat. Engine temperature gauge hardly moves and heat into passenger compartment luke warm. Unable to locate thermostat in engine compartment.


The thermostat is where your lower radiator hose meets the engine block. There are three bolts to remove to get to it, if your engine is a V6

In cold weather my heating doesn't blow hot air


When your engine thermostat has failed or is sticking open, the engine fluid isn't able to reach a temperature that lets your heater core get hot enough to produce worthwhile heat to blow into the passenger's compartment. It is also not good for your engine to run below design temperature.
If you have a dashboard temp gauge, if your thermostat is stuck open, that gauge will probably stay in the cold area.
I would think that that is the problem, and I would have the thermostat changed (not a very difficult or expensive job).
Hope this helps you.

Changed thermostat still blowing cold air


Get it warmed up, and with the heat on and running, feel the coolant lines that go from the engine compartment through the fire wall to the heater core. They should both be hot. If not you may have a plugged up heater core. If you can remove both hoses and flush water through it, sometimes this will unclog the core.

97 dakota barely warm heat


If replacing the thermostat dosen't work ,It is most likley the heater core.Don't worry it's not as bad as you think.You will need to flush it out.Disconnect the hoses from the firewall, in the engine compartment.You will find them to the left of the brake booster.A 5/8" garden hose will fit with the end cut off.You may want to place a length of hose on the opposite tube as well.Turn on the water and flush it for a few minutes.Reverse the water into the other hose to back flush.Reconnect the hoses and you should have heat.
