We have replaced the heater tap which is located just behind the radiator. It has a number of hoses attached to it as well as the switch. It is a %$#@*& to get at and you will need to remove all the front shrouds as well as the radiator to do it successfully. Problem solved but if you can do it yourself you will save yourself a monster labour bill to repace a reasonably easy fitting.

2000 oldsmobile bravada heater control valve location


If you are looking for some sort of water valve that diverts water to/from the heater core, forget it. They don't exist anymore. They went away shortly after the widely adapted use of air conditioning in today's modern cars. Now, hot coolant is routed thru the heater core at all times, but is controlled by a cable-operated, or vacuum operated "blend door" located inside the heater box. If you are not getting heat to the vehicle, there are a few possible problems:

1. Bad thermostat - thus low coolant temperature and lack of heat.
2. Clogged heater core - no water flow thru core, thus no heat.
3. Broken control head - loss of cable or vacuum actuation of blend door.
4. Broken heater box/vacuum tank - no actuation of blend door.

Of the items listed above, based on the age of the vehicle and the likelihood of occurrence, I would investigate them in the order of 2, 4, 1, 3.

Why is my heater blowing cold


Most likely it is the heater control valve that shifts air from blowing across your heater core to your air conditioner core.

If your fan works and your car is fairly new..meaning your heater core isn't dirty and full of craap...then it is the climate cotrol valve.
If you are lucky, it might be a thermostat that is bad and blocking hot water from entering your heater core. Bottom line, if hot water doesn't circulate thru that little heater core, you won't get heat.
You might be able to look under the hood and grab the hot water lines that go thru the firewall and feed your heater core. If they feel cold to the touch after engine has warmed up, then you aren't getting circulating water to the heater core. If they feel nice and warm, then the heater core is fine, but your climate control valve has closed off the fan that blows across the core to disperse heat into the cabin

2002 Ford Taurus, Heater blows cold air?

Truck will only heat for a minute then quits


make sure hot water is flowing thru the heater core by feeling both hoses, in and out, both should be hot. if not, maybe the valve is not opening to allow the water to flow. If both hoses are hot then maybe the heater valves are not working and you are just bringing in cold outside air instead of the air flowing thru the heater core and providing heater air. Could also be a sensor in the heater that thinks it is a lot warmer than it really is.

2005 gmc savanna van...cooling system will not blow hot heat. water pump,heater core,radaitor and thrmostate replaced. is there any electrical problems/


don't know this van specifically, but some things to check, make sure cabin filter is replaced or clean, you didn't say if the blower itself works, if not, correct or replace. Check the hoses going to the heater core, if hot water is flowing thru the core, both hoses should be hot. Check the heater controls to make sure doors in the system are opening closing as they should, you may just be drawing in cold air and not going thru the heater core.

1999 Jeep wragler heater blowing cold air why?


Could be different problems.
The blower uses a resistor to regulate fan speed, the resistor could be faulty.
You would need to know if the radiator is full of coolant and if both heater hoses are getting hot. There may be a temp control valve in one heater hose that is not opening up to allow flow thru the heater core.

1993 caravan 3.3 heater gets a little warm not warm enough


Before replacing the heater core. make sure its the problem. Disconnect the hoses from the heater core and take a garden hose and try to run water thru it. if water flows thru it then its not the heater core. it could be the valve that stops the flow of coolant into the heater core.

No hot air from heater, fan works, air conditioner works


Check and see that there is heat in both heater hoses going to and from your heater.It is shows that you are getting a flow through the heater core.
If the hoses are not both hwarm then you may have restricted flow either in the hoses, the control valves or in the core.
I they are both warm then check the following.
I had a cold car that the hoses were reversed on and the hot water was going into the top of the heater core. I solved the problem by reversing the heater hoses to have the hot water going into the core on the botton and returning to the motor thru the top line.
Good Luck
