    I, too have a '97 T/C and the heater/defroster just stopped working! Blows great - only frigid air! I flushed the radiator and checked the thermostat & hoses with no luck. Because it's "climate controlled" the few service techs I can find that'll even look at it want $100 just to diagnose!!! The air seems to work fine, if that's any help. At this point I can only assume it's the heater core or a computer issue. I'd really appreciate any thoughts on narrowing down the problem and fixing this; it's getting awfully cold!

    My 1997 lincoln towncar blows cold air only. Recently had the intake manifold replaced with the metal coolant housing. Clicking sound coming from right side where air blows on the floor whenever I turn on the heater. Temperature gauge displays in the normal range and thermostat is opening and closing. What is the problem? My heater controls are digital. HELP!!! It's cold in St. Louis, Missouri...

It just blows cold air. no hot air


With the vehicle cold, check your coolant level and fill it up it it is low. Start with your heater hoses. Check to see if one hose is hotter than the other. If so, then you have a bad or malfunctioning heater control valve (if equipped) or a bad heater core. If the vehicle never gets up to operating temperature, your should change your thermostat.

Temp gauge and computer says car is hot but water in tank is cool


Does your heater blow out hot air? If you get plenty of heat even at idle (after the engine is warm) then you probably have a temperature sensor issue. If you don't get plenty of heat you either have low coolant or a thermostat issue. Check the level of your coolant when the engine is cold, it should be at the cold fill level that is marked on the resovoir. If it at the correct level, check for flow in the rad if it has a cap. DON'T OPEN IT WHEN THE ENGINE IS HOT!!!! Open if before you start the engine. Watch for the coolant moving through the rad, also (with the cap on and engine hot) both rad hoses, one should be a little cooler than the other. If they are both cool you have restriction in the cooling system. Hopes this helps, I am a former Ford master technician. If you need more help put a new question in Help me, Billy along with an email and I'll contact you with help.

2002 Buick LeSabre Custom. Cooling System had brown chiffon looking foam in radiator. Drained and flushed cooling system with water. Disconnected both heater hoses and forced water through in both...


The brown looking chiffon could be oil in the water. However, if you are sure the system is ok then I would check the actuator door motor on the heater and make sure it is allowing the heat into the car. Seems as if you have done as much as you can.

Heater blows cold air then hot air then cold air. but mostly cold air


Check your coolant level. Especially after you drive it and it starts to cool down. You have air in the system and it needs to be purged. Sad to say but chrysler/ dodge are bad for this problem. Some times you have to remove the hose from the heater core spout to get it purge correctly. You have to do this while it is running.

I just changed thermostat, and replaced coolant, still my 1995 gmc suburban blows cold air.


Find the two heater hoses going through the firewall to the heater core both need to be hot at operating temp. If both are hot the problem will be inside with the heater control. I only one heater hose is hot the
problem will be the heater core. I am assuming you have bled all the air out of the cooling system.

1999 Lincoln Navigator stops blowing hot air


Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps you.

Heat blows cold, where is the thermostat to change it


Follow the lower radiator hose, it ends at the thermostat when you are done, be sure to bleed the air out of the cooling system. Fill it up and open the bleeder valve at the thermostat housing (12mm) fill the radiator until coolant comes out of it, then tighten it and fill the radiator up. Does the engine temp read cold also? The heater valve is located down low on the firewall with a heater hose going to it, be sure its operating with your temp cable.

I have a 2001 mercury villager that overheats. I replaced the fan assembly and the thermostat. The radiator is fine. What else could be causing the van to overheat?


You have air trapped in the system. If you have cold air, warm air, cold air from your heater, then it's air entrapment. Very common these days. Go to a shop that uses vacuum method to refill cooling system & that will purge air.
Otherwise, you can try. Park uphill. cold engine - fill radiator to top with 50/50 mix of antifreeze. leave cap on but loose. fill reservior to 3/4 full. Turn heater to hot to allow coolant to flow through heater core. start engine, run at 1500 rpms until thermostat opens and upper hose is hot. tighten cap and let it cool down. after cool check level of reservoir. fill to top line on reservoir. it should **** coolant back into radiator as it cools down.
repeat if still an issue.

Heater blows out cold air when on the warm setting ,possibly a plugged heater core


yes this is very likely the problem, have you check your cooling system is it rusty? if so the heater core is plugged, take the inlet and outlet hoses off the core at firewall and use a garden hose to clear it, then have the cooling system flushed if rusty.
