Having a problem with temperature gauge not moving at all. What could be the problem?


What year,make,model and engine size do you have,did you replace the coolant temperature sensor by the thermostat,some vehicles like mine have a sender and a sensor,the sender is a one prong part that sends the message to your gauge on dash.

Heater has loss of heat when Idles


Check for a clogged or defective radiator. The inner parts you can't see could be the source of the problem.

How to change thermostat on 2000 caravan


Follow top rad hose to the housing remove two bolts on housing that the hose attaches to after removing rad hose on engine side, pop housing off and change thermostat. Once changed reverse procedure start vehicle with cap off filling antifreeze watching your temp guage and wait for the fans to come on to work air locks out of system. Once fans have cycled and level has dropped you should have good heat and be able to cap your rad. DONE! Be careful not to get burned!

Why wont my heating work on vauxhall corsa club 2007


Themost likely cause of the problem is the condution of your antifreeze. You see it dosn't last forever 5 years is a good rule of thumb.What happens is you have a small leak someware so you add water . At this point the system is not holding proper pressure 14. 2 lbs because of the leak. Could be the cap or a hose or the radiator it self has broken down and the leak is a fine mist that you can't even see it leaking its a mist. However the block is made of iron and it rusts . This puts rust in the antifreeze that flows through out the entire system clogging things like the heater core and radiator.So at this point you need to know the conduition of the antifreeze there is a test tool similar to a battery tester it has a # of small color coded balls in it when antifreeze is drawn from the radiator they should float if not you need to drain all antifreeze from the entire system and the block it has a pipe thread plug on each side of the block. Fill with water add 10 munite cleaner let it heat up then drain all again you may need to repeat this step. Then remove the 5/8 s hoses from the heater core on the passanger side of the fire wall if you have a mixing valve in one of these lines remove and clean -free up so it moves if its stuck. The heat core can also be cleaned at this point by pluging short lenghts of 5/8 hose on bolth sides with something to catch the flow of water when you gentle force water back and forth from side to side with a garden hose . Then put new antifreeze in and you will be good for 5 years if there are no leaks so check for all leak

The heater only blows cold air,the radiator is full,thermastat is working and the engine temp is within normal ranges.


I've had this problem. 2000 GMC uses a closed coolant system. Meaning takes and returns coolant from and to the Reserve Bottle and has little air in the engine and heater systems.
If everything appears ok but no heat. "Air Lock" is the most likely cause. (With interior heater set to full heat) Solution; 1. Make sure water pump works. 2. Drain about 1/2 engine coolant into container. 3 Remove both heater hoses from engine side and flush heater core in both directs through heater hoses with garden hose. 4. Reattach heater hoses in correct locations. 4. Refill engine with coolant. 5 Start engine and run for 2 min., use caution when topping up coolant.
6. Most 2000 GMC have twist off caps with plugs located mid way on heater hoses. with engine cold, start engine these caps may be loosened to allow trapped air to escape. Do not attempt with engine hot due to hot coolant injuries. This may take more than one attempt to remove all air from heat system. 7. Lastly most 2000 GMC water pumps have a bleeder plug,( 3/8" square driver plug) located on the water pump. With egine cold this plug should be removed to remove any air. Reinstall plug with thread sealant.
Hope this helps cheers

Replaced thermostat waterpump,timing belt,now no heat inside car


i would check to see if the vent/flap in the heat duct is working properly
if it is stuck than it will only blow cold air directly from the out side vent
and not through the heater core

My 2002 ford taurus has no heat, i have replaced the temperature sensor, the water pump, 2 thermostats, heater core is not leaking antifreeze overflow bucket has new cap? what else could my problem be?


I have the same vehicle...check to see that the heater control valve is opening...usually mounted on the fire wall and has about a 5/8" inch hose that come from the T-stat....it esentially bypasses the heater core when the heat is not selected. The hoses going through the fire wall on the left (passenger) side of the vehicle are strictly for the heater - it "heat" is selected and those hoses are cold - based on what you've already done, the next conclusion would be the heater control valve...could be something as simple as a disconnected vacuum line.

Good Luck,

Mike...
