Luke warm heat

Blew head gasket 2 months ago.Didn't need heat until now,but when you turn on the heat it just blows out luke warm.pulled off radiator cap inside was full of junk.Took it in for a flush and they told me the heater core was plugged.Wanting to find out for myself I pulled the lines off and tried to put water thru the core and it just trickeld out.So I bought some flush ran it thru and hooked up the hose again and got great flow but still no heat.When the garage did the heat gasket could they mistakenly have done something about the heat .Is there some type of heater control valve vacume line thingy(haha)???So what ya think??Jim

YES, THEIR IS A HOT WATER CONTROL VALVE, ITCAN BE OPERATED BY VACUMN, OR CABLE, VAC, TYPE WILL HAVE AVACUMN HOSE TO IT, PLS CHECK IT FOR CONDITION, CRACKS, SWELLING, IF OK, THEN WITH ENGINE RUNNING, HEATER CONTROL IN HOT POS. PULL HOSE OFF VALVE, PUT FINGER OVER END, FEEL FOR VACUME. IF THERE IS, MOST COMONLEY RESULT IS THAT VALVE NEED TO BE REPLACED.

I would not waste money on a radiator cap. The motor is shot ( probably a blown head gasket or cracked head) You probably will get weeks or until it blows up and the highway patrol puts you off the road with a hefty fine to boot.

Over heating replace cam thermo and head gasket


If the cooling system had enough pressure to blow off the top radiator hose, you may have a cracked head or block.
I would take the thermostat out and run the engine without it to see how hot it gets and how much pressure it builds up. Be sure and check the radiator cap too.

check to see if your hoses are collapsed, bring car to normal operating temp check if hoses collapsed. It sound like a bad head gasket or worse yet a cracked head. look in oil if tan you have water in it bad head or gasket, pull spark plugs see if their wet. when car is cold remove radiator cap let car warm up to normal operating temp if radiator fluid blows up and out of radiator bad head or head gasket. also check sylinder presures another way to check for cracked head.

When engine cold, remove radiator gasket, fill with water and start the car with the radiator cap off, if the water is blowing out from the radiator, then you have a blown head gasket or bent head. If the water doesn't move inside the radiator if it's still then your head gasket and head are fine. I asume that you didn't move the distributor to change the rotor and cap so there is no chance to left the spark timing a little delayed. Remove the new spark plugs one by one and look for a sign of rust, that could mean that cylinder is getting water from the head. (Only if it didn't pass the radiator test).

My temp gauge goes up to the hot but doesn't overheat but blows cold air then the gauge will drop to bout half n then start blowin hot air replaced thermostat n a new rad cap could it be the heat sensor


No, because it blows cold air when it gets hot. There is air in the system or the coolant is low. Intake manifold gaskets are a very common problem on these engines and if left unattended to can cause even bigger problems such as head gaskets if the engine over heats too much. Check the coolant level and if it is low, look for leaks at the water pump, radiator and especially the intake manifold where it meets the head. Also, pull the oil dip stick an/or the oil cap to see if it looks milky. If it does, there is coolant getting into the oil.

The heat has went out and the engine is overheating,it blew the radiator hose off when it happened.


Sounds like you have a bad head gasket, Some simple tests at a repair shop can verify this.

No use putting any money into this until you verify the integraty of the engine

that is air going through your heater core when your engine is cold start it up remove radiator cap turn on heater and keep filling radiator until it wont take anymore check it again tomorrow if it is low again get a pressure tester and you will have to find the leak if you cant see it dripping when it is pressured up or hot from runnung a while it might be a head gasket
to check this with cold motor remove rad cap and run motor till warm and look for small bubbles coming out of radiator
