Now it runs funny and heater wont blow

Now that I found the leaky hose and fixed it. I have a new problem. My heater won't blow hot and it seems to be sluggish at times now that I plugged the loose hose back. I think my thermostat might be bad but it shows a normal temp. I know I could fix it if I only knew what else to try. thanks for the last bit of info.

Almost sounds like air in the system.... let it warm up so the thermostat is open... squeeze the hose going to the heater core. make sure the radiator is filled as well. if it has an overflow tank add fluid to that.

What causes smoke to come through the vents on a 2004 Jeep Liberty 5 speed manual 3.7L engine?

It will most likely be whisps of steam you see through the vents often accompanied with sweet smell. The heater core is usually the culprit and is leaking. Any coolant stains/wet marks on the passenger floor. Does the windshield fog up when on defrost. All signs of a leaky heater core

Check the heater hose's going in through the fire wall ,are they hot ? Both hose's ! This is something you can do yourself ! If they are hot probably the temp actuator is bad or the door is stuck on the cold or heater core clogged ! Video's on youtube showing what to check. Learn to double check your mechanic !

Heater blowing only cold air

you may have a clogged heater core or heater core bypass valve may be stuck closed. bypass valve is usually on the firewall on one of the heater core hoses. if valve seems to be operating properly. you will need to let the vehicle cool down. disconnect both heater hoses. connect garden hose to one side of heater core let water run through one side and then the other side. if the heater core is too clogged it may need to be replaced.

My 1996 heater isn't blowing out hot. How do I fix it?

Check the heater control valve. Usually located on a heater hose between the firewall and where the hose attaches to the engine. Warm the engine, turn the heater on full hot, feel the hose with the valve in it. If the hose is hot on both sides then the valve is probably OK. If hot only on the engine side of the valve then the valve is not opening when the control calls for heat. Probably a stuck valve or leaky vacuum control hose. Otherwise I would suspect either a clogged heater core or a stuck open engine thermostat .

2006 Chevy Impala Heater only works when accelorater is depressed

Impalas are known for this issue, where the heating won't work properly.... usually caused by trapped air/bubbles in cooling system or slightly low coolant level. Park car so that the right front side is elevated and remove the coolant OVERFLOW bottle cap (NEVER the radiator cap) while engine is running.. This should allow the trapped air to escape. Also add a bit more coolant if needed.
