Maybe two ways you have no heat on the heater, one there's a problem w/ the heater core, two you need to check the cooling system and make sure it's operating normal.

Overheating


There may be air trapped in the cooling system. If no air bleed on the thermostat housing, or right beside it, start engine at cold, remove radiator cap, and let it idle until warmed up and the thermostat opens fully. When at operating temperature, shut off the car, check coolant level, and put the cap back on. See if that removes any trapped air.

Ive a 1995 Lexus gs300. Its been running fine until today. It has been extremely Cold, and today One of the Hoses Blew off the car obviously water and steam. The hose was fixed by the AA, and on my way...


Trust what the AA says ..

It does sound like you have an airlock .. and the airlock is likely to be in the heater matrix, as opposed to the radiator.

Bleed the heating system: Set your heater controls to hot and fully open. Let the engine work until it reaches normal operating temperature. Check your coolant level to see if it has dropped.

You can always bleed the coolant system by leaving the coolant bottle cap off for 10 minutes whilst the engine ticks over.

It isn't your water pump.

My 1988 Ford Bronco 5.0 has been stalling / acting like its run out of gas. (Has always run great before) I know it has plenty. Today 7.28.10 It stalled twice, first time it did it had at least 1/4 tank,...


You might have what is called vapor lock. The fuel gets so hot that it boils in the fuel pump or the lines. Do this test spay water on the fuel pump to cool it off . ( this only works for a few minutes before it gets to hot and vapor locks again ) If you can Keep the engine heat Off the lines and the Fuel pump it might help. If you have metal fuel lines near a heat source rap them with something such as rubber fuel line sliced down the middle to keep the heat off them If you are using an aftermarket electric fuel pump relocate it down low near the gas tank ( they work better pushing than pulling ) away from any heat source such as exhaust If your using the stock fuel pump try replacing it with a new one it might be getting weak Replace the fuel filter while your at it.

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee is blowing cold air for the first 30 minutes of my ride home (20-degree weather), then warms up slightly but never gets hot -- i'm guessing heater core (it has 200k+ miles)


It is most likely a thermostat. As your car gets older the thermostat begins to lose its spring like properties and stays open all the time causing your car to never warm up.

If you can't tackle right away, start your car in the morning and let it run for about 15 minutes to warm up. Be sure to turn the heat on full blast and recirculate the air.

Car heat takes 10 to 15 minutes on a 2005 dodge


could be clogged up heater core or the heating helper element ..if you look for the heater air box you should see a 3 wire plug with i believe its 2 screws on it remove it and start the car and have someone hold it {not the coil wire ends and turn on the heat it should glow red hot this is the heater coil helper you may also have insufficient antifreeze remove radiator cap and check fluid levels also while your there feel the top and bottom hose to see if they both get hot and that you feel water in them but 1st ensure the radiator is full if just the top hose going into the heater-core to the firewall is hot and the bottom one is cold you should have a radiator flush to dislodge the Gunk buildup in the heater core .

What could cause the heating to pack up in my 98 corolla?


Try it again today, if no heat, move back & forth from cold to hot, and bang with hand, under dash on passenger side where heater duct work is and wait a few seconds. Blend/air door may be stuck.

No Heat in 99 Taurus


Just finished fixing my daughters 1999 taurus heat. It would blow warm only when running down the road. At idle it blew cold. I started with replacing thermostat, and water pump because they are the easier fix. Still did not help. Then I replaced the heater core. A daunting job but not that hard to move the dash slighly out of the way to replace. There is a good write up at tarusclub.com. After that, heat was better but at idle, it would still blow cool sometimes. Researched and found answer. Park car on the steepest hill you can find with front of car up. Start car and take off reservoir cap. Let car warm up and keep rpms about 1500. After a while the fluid will come running out of the car and all over the place but it will bring air bubbles with it. Reduce rpm, add more fluid and repeat about 3 times. It will make a mess but after that, the heater works perfectly. We get heat long before the temp gage indicates any and it never blows cold unless you lower the temp.
