You have a heater core problem. that is the cause of all the other peoblems you are having. you will need to replace the heater core located under the dashboard. it probably damaged the blower motor and other components. As for the locks it seems they need some good lubrication.

Why do heat and defrost only work when I'm moving?


it sounds like it may be low on antifreeze. sometimes when there isn't enough antifreeze in the radiator it wont put out much heat until you rev up the engine. at idle the water pump cant move the anti freeze but at a higher rpm. it can. but there is a chance you may burn up the water pump by not having enough antifreeze. check it and fill to proper level and see if this cures it.

2006 Suzuki forenza overheating


vast ways to overheat. do you want a list?
got signs.? just the gauge or got steam... do TELL?
if it really overheated, did the fans come on.
did you read all the diagnostic steps on the FSM? (alldata.com)
or at suzuki pit stop plus for 4 bucks?
have you, tried to replace anything yet>?
do you want to guess or TEST.
one way is long and expensive , other is save money
your call,
most DYI , do the never done full cooling service, now.
full flush and new thermostat.
6 year old thermostat are kind , END of LIFE now.

signs:
(rad id full of 50% antifreeze, look in rad not the overflow tank) COLD.
1: belt slips? to pump? makes noise or just slips?
2: fans never come on.
3: engine pings. (knocks or detonates)
4: steam or water spouting from RAD or side tank?
5: water in engine oil? or a/t trans? (dip stick end looks milky)
6: carbon dust in the AF , when looking on dead cold , rad cap off neck hole..
7: guage lies, or surges. gauges do lie, or air in the block below STAT makes this happen, no sender or STAT can work in AIR POCKET.
none. so did you really check the level cold at RAD cap off?
8: lost engine power?
9: try a new RAD cap yet, for 5bucks. (if the GASKET IS OK, IT'S OK)
10: if all the above works, Use any IR pyro heat gun meter, to see
if all rad tubes, (hot) read the same, top and bottom
if side flow rad? left and right,. each tube starts at about 180F
and drops by up to 50F degrees. to 130F at the other end of tube
if one tube is same temp end to end,it's clogged,

if all that pans out. the pump is bad.
like this one.

the gun
http://www.fixkick.com/my-IR-GUN.gif

for about 15bucks at Harbor Fright (pun)

im sure i missed a test. but that happens as you proceed.
as you gather evidence you will, do other test. or actions.
diagnostic logic.

Where is the thermostat located in the suzuki swift 2008 engine?


OLD post , over one year old.
NO ENGINE STATED.
No country stated.

(are the rad fans, all on full, when overheating?)
they must or it will overheat.
this is first. not thermostat and only takes looking,
most easy answer of all, (no engine stated)
"the thermostat is the hose that gets hot first."

2008 swift, no country stated, no engine.
swift or swift+?
here is the list in 08
1.2 L I4 (petrol)
1.3 L M13A I4 (petrol)
1.5 L M15A I4 (petrol)
1.6 L M16A I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (diesel)


look below and see that just the word "swift"
means ZERO. (in the world wide web)
see M13a stat.

How can i ell if my water pump is failing


over heating has many causes.
what are the signs, just the gauge going high. ?
steam shooting out rad cap. (is the cap even good>?)
side recovery tank, blasting? with hot water and steam.
oil in the RAD neck , (cold engine) RAD=Radiator assembly.
antifreeze "AF" in the engine oil>? (dip stick looks like milkchocolate?
leaks to the ground, from what?? (find it)
does the RAD fan come on , overheated, It must. does it?
is the RAD core clean? outside, ? not packed with bugs and leaves.
the #1 failure part is the thermostat. put in a new one. and cap.
they are cheap . and easy to change out both cap and STAT.
are you running 50% AF? , using the Prestone $2 tool for the test?
AF raises the boiling point of water, to 260?F
the cap holding pressure and the AF both raise it that high.
if car does not over heat, moviing, only, nows that time to say so..
get in car, cold , drive did it overheat with no stop signals?
(moving gives free air flow to the RAD, proving it works)
Use the radiator leak down tool. to see of loop is beached.
Use the Exhaust gas detector tool at RAD cap to see if the head gasket is blown.

how do you know the pump is. bad.
1: it leaks
2: the impeller is dust.
3:ITS pulley wobbles like mad.

my answer, the pump is after all other test pass.
including a RAD core, thermogram
i can check each rad tube 1 by 1, in fact i threat my RAD
as 10 or more tiny radiators (it is)
see 50 mile test here, RAD cores
They get 34f degree tube drops.. each tube must drop or its clogged.
all for a $15 tool and no burned fingers.
measure each tube about 2inch from top of tank and bottom
and both tanks. (this test is very revealing)

Heater just buts out cold air


Any leaks in the system(do you have to add water regularly?)? Check the heater control valve- it allows hot water to circulate through the heater core. Could be bad.

Air pocket must be in the block and preventing thermostat from opening. how do i bleed that out


remove top hose from rad pour antifreze in hose towards block to prime water pump once pump primed it will throw air out so once rad hose full and coolant running from rad
re conect hose and start car with rad cap off once rad fluid starts to flow in rad fill it up with 50/50 premix and install cap
wait 45 secs or soo then remove cap carefully as not to make a mess now check fluid levels when still running add if required

also make sure if serp belt that is has water pump spinning in right direction

some cars like the cavalier will allow the pump to be spun in reverse burning the bearings out and cooking the water pump

I replaced the top radiator hose, and added coolant it still runs hot and left side air is cold, right side air is hot


Sounds like 2 different issues. Change the thermostat and then check the heater core valve for the left right issue.

My heater stopped working and I replaced the thermostat and checked fuse. What else could it be


if you drained all the water out the engine you may need to bleed the air out of the heater to get it to work right,
look for a plastic bleed velve on a rubber hose it will be high up above the rad or header tank fill rad with water open bleed velve and let water out till no air is in it, top up water in rad,,, do this with a cold engine,,

04 civic heater blows cold air at idle


you should have hot water on all rad. hoses when the motor is running at a norm. temp. the water is not going through the heater core like it should. you have cutoff valve bad low water are a stopped heater.try a hoter thermostat if none of the above are true.
