Dan how do I bleed 2004 Kia coolant car temp is good but sometime at idle heater starts to blow cool hit throttle gets great heat


I agree with your logic. Attached vid addresses bleeding. Sounds like at low rpms, not enough flow to transfer the heat. So bubble or maybe a partially obstructed core. There are a couple of vids on clearing a core... GOod luck, let us know if you figure it out.

I'm fues to my fan keeps going out on my 2006 P.T


More than likely you have an internal fault either in the fan itself or the thermostat that activates it.

For a fuse to blow it has to have a lot higher than normal current draw through it, which is normally refered to as a short. If the fuse blows almost immediately then I would suggest you unplug the fan, and see if the fuse blows with just the thermostat in the circuit. If it blows - replace the thermostat control. If it doesn't blow, plug in the fan and watch it. If it trys to start and then blows the fuse, replace the fan motor.

04 sentra 1.8 over heats after a highway drive. Pull off the highway and come to light and needle shoots to just under H! Start to drive and needle drops right away. Changed thermostat, did two rad...


Air pocket need the thermostat housing.

Air is not a good conductor of heat.

Park you car on a hill and let the air pocket to work itself out to the cooling system.

A shop will charge $65+ to purge the air out.

My fan fuse blows when it gets hot


About the only thing that would cause the fan fuse to blow is either the fan has a problem and is dragging or a short in the wiring. I would bet the fan motor is probably bad. The hoses and thermostat have nothing to do with the fan motor fuse blowing.

99 Dodge Intrepid only have heat when driving


what does your thermostat say? is it reading in the cool range or in the normal running temperature range?

if its reading cool..... your thermostat needs to be replaced.

does the fan blow well? or does it only blow while moving?

if the fan doesnt blow well/ not at all, or seems to blow better when driving then its either a bad fan or/and wiring problems to the fan

some cars have vacuum activated valve that turn on and off the heater. if you have a leak in the vacuum line under your dash it could be causing the valve to only open half way. making it not work as well..
