Question about 2005 Lexus SC300

1 Answer

Heater blows cold air

I have a 1992 Lexus SC300 with the heater blowing cold air. I have changed the thermostat and that didn't work. The engine does not overheat. Last spring, the heater would blow heat sometimes and sometimes not. It seamed like if the car ran for a few minutes before you turned on the heat, it would blow heat after the car warmed up. If you turned on the heater immediately after starting the car, the heater would not blow heat even after the car warmed up. Any suggestions on where to start? I have shop manuals.

With the car warmed up,feel the heater hoses,are they both warm/hot near the firewall in the engine compartment?If they are both warm/hot,then the heater core should have circulation through it and it may be a "blend door" issue in the heater a/c assembly.If they are not warm/hot then the heater core could be dirty and plugged up and needs to be flushed.
If the above does not help,a drain and vacuum of the cooling system and vacuum refill will remove any trapped air.
Sometimes,clamping off the top rad hose and holding the engine rpm at 2000 rpm will force trapped air out of the heater core.(Watch temp gauge when trying this)
Lastly,a NEW thermostat doesn't mean its working correctly.

replace the power steering pump. make sure you get crush rings for the hoses too. dont use stop leak stuff either because it WILL clog the filter in the power steering rack and then youll have to replace that too.

1995 sc400 lexus heater will not heat just blows cold air


you may be low on coolant, if not a common tell tale sign of a faulty thermostat is the car staying on the cold indictaor for a very long period of time especially after acceleration., some other issues may be a clogged heater core, however the most likely culprit is low anti freeze or a malfunctioning thermostat.

1995 lexus sc400 heater works while driving. cool air when stopped. help


Heater cold when at idle: Try stopping on a steep incline--does the heater stay warm? If yes, what you have is an air bubble that hangs at the heater hose until pressure from the water pump blows thru it as the engine speeds up. Park on an incline, open the radiator cap, run the engine until the thermostat is open, and fill the radiator to the neck. Wait until the level stops dropping and make sure bubbles don't continue to come up. If they do, you may have a blown head gasket that will keep forming these bubbles until you change the gasket. Please let me know if you have questions.

Lexus heater blows cold


You could have a blocked heater core. Check for two heater hoses running into the firewall in the back of your engine. They should be together and about 5/8" in diaameter. If one is hot and the other is cooler then your heater core is blocked. Unhook both hoses and use a garden hose to back flush. Be sure to catch the coolant and dispose of it properly.

1992 es 300 lexus heater is blowing cold


. Yes it could. some are vacuum powered, cable powered (mechanically) or electric powered. If the valve does not open. The hot water will not get to the heater core. It could also be the thermostat not opening.

1992 Jeep Wrangler heater not blowing hot air


How often has the coolant been changed? My only guess is that it hasn't and the hoses and the heater core are plugged up with goo and a flush is needed
