    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...

Where would start to repair heater, blowing cool air only. 2004 ford ranger edge


Check that the cooling system is fully serviced (near full mark in coolant reservoir). With engine warmed up, feel (carefully) both heater hoses where they go into the firewall. If both are hot, there is water circulating through the heater core - possibly problem with blend door actuator. If only one hose, or neither hose is hot, you may have a blockage in the heater core. This usually means replacing the heater core, but you may be able to flush it. See this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9SIafVsqyc

It just blows cold air. no hot air


First, make sure your coolant level is full. After spending some time looking around you probably have a shut off valve in the engine compartment. See if you can locate 2 black(sometimes red) heater hoses, about 1 1/4 inches in diameter, coming from the firewall on the passenger side. The heater control valve is located inline with the hoses. It turns on and off the flow of hot water through the heater core which radiates heat in your passenger compartment. Check with your parts house to verify this by looking up the control valve.

Why is the air in cab not hot?


Yes a vacuum leak can cause the vent valves under the dash to not operate. To check this go from heat to defrost and see if you can feel the air flow change from out the dash or foot area to the window area. If it does change then it is probably not a vacuum problem.

There should be a vac controlled valve on the heater hose near the firewall. If that valve fails, or something happens to the vac source, the valve will not open or close. I would check that valve and make sure it is working. Both heater hoses should be hot when the engine is warmed up.

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.

88 Celica has no heat. AC works fine. Any ideas


the a-c and heater run on 2 different systems the heater needs coolant going thru the heater core to make heat by blowing air through it and the a-c uses it's own sealed system to cool the air so if you have no heat / it has nothing to do with the a-c working or not . first thing you do is check the cooling system like rad and coolant levels . you will have heater core hoses running from the engine to the firewall going to the heatercore . grab the heater core hose and feel if it's hot . if your hoses are hot then the heater core is bad or the blending doors are stuck .

Heater does not work


Seems like very little volume of water is reaching the heater core in the dashboard. Check the hoses that run from the cooling system into the firewall. One of these hoses might be bent or creased in a position that it impairs the normal flow of hot water into the dashboard.

Heat will not work air work fine cannot get heat to come on blow cold air


Check to see if your heater core is stopped up. To do this, start the car and warm up the engine. Turn the heater on and turn the temp up. Raise the hood and locate the two heater hoses on the passenger's side going through the firewall below the windshield. Feel both hoses with your hands. If one is hot and one is cool, then the heater core is stopped up. Turn the engine off and let it completely cool. Disconnect the two heater hoses and blow through one and then the other with an air hose till it is clear. Reconnect heater hoses. If this is not the problem, then listen for a clickin noise behind the dash while the car is running and the heater of air is on.
