    I have the same problem. My problem started three years ago when I flushed my system. I have wondered if my problem is not possibly a air lock in the coolent system. Heater will blow out warm air at first, but cools off quickly. Car does not over heat and runs at normal temp.

    My Saturn Vue 2002 blows cold air. I Just purchased it and the seller either did not know or inform me of the issue. The seller has installed a new engine recently[could that be an issue?]
    There was no colant in the rad, I just filled the bottle but still blowing cold air. Vue is at the mechanic who in unable to understand and fix the issue. Any would be highly appreicated. Thanks, Ibrahim

Vauxhall combo heater not working


Coolant is the carrier heat.

Top off the coolant system and test heater setting.

If the coolant and thermostat is over 2 years old then you should do a coolant flush.

Hot air is blowing cold in my 2001 ford escort flight


check coolant level first. possible bad thermostat, blockage, heater core is bad. check to see if a hose going into heater core is hot, if the hose is hot and the other is cold you have a blockage in heater core. if so, sometimes you can remove the hose from heater core and flush it out with a garden hose. if above fails, flush whole system.

Check engine light on, temp gauge in hot position, cold air blowing in compartment


If the temp gauge is hot and cold air is blowing in the passenger compartment, then I would say there would be a blockage or series of blockages in the cooling system. Flush it out and refill with new antifreeze/coolant mixed at 50/50 water to coolant concentration.

Check the codes to see what else may be wrong with the engine.

Heater on my 05 Grand Caravan blows cold air when below 30 degrees - above 30 works fine. Heat gauge shows normal so it shouldn't be thermostat. Checked coolant and it is fine.


just because the gauge seems normal doesnt mean the thermostat is good, its 5 years old,and may be opening to soon, i would start by having the t-stat replaced and while thats being done have the cooling system flushed including a flush off the heatercore. i ve worked on a couple of these vans with heating problems, most were low on coolant due to a slow waterpup leak, the others with half plugged heatercores, due to the lack of coolant flushes. hope this helps.

Car will not heat. Blows out cold air


Firstly check the coolant level when the engine is cool. If fluid is at correct level then more then likely thermostat is stuck open. Have coolant system flushed before installing new thermostat. Also check water pump to make sure it is not leaking out of the weep hole.

1998 Ford Explorer only blows cold air no heat at all


ok, i had the same issue, your thermostat is stuck open, or you need to check cooling system and the color of coolant, maybe try a flush, go to parts store and get some acid cleaner for flushing your cooling system.....good luck!

1995 Crown Vic. Heater blowing cold air


they radiator flush has created a blockage in the heater core that creates the heat. you dont want to replace this part because it can get $$$$. i would take it back to the shop and have them try the service again( at no charge) to see if it can remove the block

99 Taurus heater not working.


sounds like you may have an air bubble trapped. Try loosening the radiator cap & running the engine at 1500 rpms till the thermstat opens & see if you can "burp" the air out. You may lose a little coolant this way. shut off car & recheck coolant in radiator and reservoir bottle. Just because reservoir is full, doesn't mean radiator is full.

Problems with heat


Your thermostat is stuck open - if you replace that, you'll be fine (may as well have the coolant flushed as well, since you'll lose a decent amount of it when the thermostat is changed).
