Sure the heater core may be blocked ... do you get hot water when the engine is running? do you see the hoses that go from the radiator to the heater?

check those first !

You have to have a thermostat in toyotas for the water to get hot!

Is there a thermostat

Does the fan Blow

Answer a few of these and we might be able to help

My libertys heater only blows heat when I'm giving


first off all if a/c gas presssure is low or no gas at all ( because of some reason you have already lost it) it acts exactly how you you describe. kicks in and out. but cant cool air inside. (first make dealer check it for leaks and let them fill it with proper yellow flourescent dye added gas)

limited het in cabin heater is another issue. if engine is warm and still not enough heat inside, we can say that you have a clogged cabin heater or air pocket is in hoses connected to cabin heater. you need to bleed cooler radiator inm front. you need to raise infront of car and bleed it with bleeding screw. after this check the heat again if still not enouh heat you may need to replace cabin heater.

if engine is not warm enough when you drive slow or let it idle. this means you have a broken thermostate or it is stuck half open.

The interior fan for heat and ac will not run


Your car's heater is a life saver in cold weather. Before attempting to repair your car?s heater, you should understand how your car?s heater system works. First, on this page is an explanation of how your car?s heater system functions, further down the page are some pointers on heater system trouble-shooting. To warm the passenger cabin of your car, your car?s heating system makes use of excess heat from the engine?s internal combustion process. A car?s engine, in fact, when in operation produces so much excess heat that if the excess heat is not removed, it would destroy the engine. It is your car?s cooling system that removes that dangerous excess heat. Some of an engine?s excess heat is released through the exhaust. Most of an engine?s excess heat is absorbed by a circulating liquid coolant, which is a mix of water and antifreeze. The heated liquid coolant is carried from the engine through hoses to the radiator, which transfers the heat from the coolant to the outside air. That heat transfer lowers the temperature of the liquid coolant, which is then circulated back to the engine to absorb excess heat again. Whereas the radiator is located at your car?s front grill, the unit that transfers heat to the passenger cabin is located inside the dashboard. This unit is something of a mini-radiator and is referred to as the heater core. Heated liquid coolant circulates through tubes in the heater core and a heater fan blowing across those tubes, as well as through little fins encasing the tubes, directs warm air through heating vents into your car?s passenger cabin. Because your car?s heating system works off of its cooling system, heating system malfunctions are often caused by problems in the cooling system.

The heater core in your car is similar to the radiator in the front of your car; in fact it looks like a small radiator. The difference is the heater is mounted inside the car and air is blown through the fins of the core. The heater hosestransfer engine coolant from the engine to the heater core, this allows the heat from the engine coolant to be utilized and warm the passenger compartment. When a heater stops functioning determine what type of failure has occurred to execute a repair. We have listed the most common problems below.

P0741 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance or Stuck Off

Your car actually has a viscous converter clutch inside the torque converter instead of a (mechanical) torque converter clutch to lock up the torque converter for fuel economy improvement. You will see it referred to as the VCC and/or TCC.....

The TCC/VCC has a variety of components in the system including an electrical circuit supplying the transmission, the apply solenoid inside the trans, the torque converter itself, the PCM that controls the apply, etc. It is impossible to diagnose from afar. Unlikely that it is a "sensor" inside the trans as the PCM controls the VCC apply and uses engine and trans data that it receives from a variety of sources. If a "sensor" had failed the trouble code for that sensor would be setting......

Something as simple as the brake switch can cause the VCC to not apply correctly. There is a safety switch on the brake pedal that activates the brake lights and disconnects the VCC circuit. If it is misadjusted then the trans cannot apply the VCC. Lots of other trouble shooting items on the VCC system. If you don't have a service manual and cannot trouble shoot the system, I would recommend a Cadillac dealer as they have the trouble shooting information for the specific VCC that the Cadillac 4T80E trans has that a trans shop is simply not familiar with. No sense working on the trans until you actually know what is wrong.

I have a 2001 v70xc. Just today the heat in the car will only blow warm air if the thermostat knobs are turned all the way to 80. Anything less and the air blows cool. Any thoughts on what the issue may...


1.)Check that your antifreeze reservoir is between the min and max marks (You want to be VERY VERY sure that your engine has sufficient coolant or you could damage you engine).If your engine/coolant system was low, very little hot coolant would get into the heater core and you could have low heat in the cabin.

2.) If you have your engine warmed up (as seen on the engine temperature gauge), try squeezing the top radiator hose gently (wear a glove as this could be hot). It should be very rigid/firm (a little harder than a tennis ball). After these two steps you should be relatively sure you have sufficient coolant. Watch out for sweet smells though, this would mean you have a leak somewhere.

3.)If you have you noticed your engine takes longer than usual to warm up you could have a thermostat stuck OPEN, which may need to be replaced.

These would be the first 3 basic trouble-shooting steps for low heat in the cabin, before continuing further the investigation. You may find more specific information for your model, but these three steps are universal for just about all vehicles.

Good Luck!

Sounds like a dual control hot water valve. The Lincoln dealer will be your best bet, this is a complicated heating and a/c system.

2008 honda pilot cabin air filter


This solution pertains to a 2008 Honda Pilot...To replace the cabin air filter which is located on the passenger side of the vehicle behind the glove box: Open glove box and remove stored items...while sitting in the passenger seat, pull towards you on each of the two clips on the left and right side of the glove box...this will cause them to become loose and the glove box will tip out completely exposing the inside of the dashboard. (Alternately...carefully pull towards you on the top center of the glove box which will cause the left and right side stops to pull away from the edges and allow the glove box to tip out) Here it gets tricky...the box holding the cartridge for the cabin air filter is the large black box on the left side behind the glove box The filter fits in a removable tray vertically inside that box. A pressure clip at the top of the box allows the vertical cover to be removed exposing the tray with the Cabin air filter... BUT!!! There is a plastic bar an inch or so high which has been placed there by the manufacturer to prevent most from changing the filter without the service department being involved. This bar must be cut with a sharp sheetrock knife or hacksaw and discarded, (it will not be reinstalled). Then there is a flat metal bar behind the plastic bar that can be removed using an 8mm socket and a phillips screwdriver. There are 2 8mm screws and one phillips head screw on each side that must be removed in order to remove the metal bar. THEN you can remove the cover to the cabin air filter box, pull out the tray with the filter (note how the filter is in the box so the new one can be placed the same way) reinsert the tray with the new filter and replace the tray cover. All other steps to finish the job are obvious as everything is the reverse. Actually the whole process is a lot of trouble and unless you are determined to change the filter I would recommend not doing it.
