This can be caused by several things. 1st check the coolant level. You would be surprised how many people don't have heat because the coolant level is low. The hot engine coolant won't circulate thru the heater core if the level is low, resulting in no or little heat.
2nd What does the engine temp gauge indicate? Is it in the low-normal range or showing that the car isn't warming up? If that's the case, replace your thermostat, as that would indicate the thermostat may be stuck open, not allowing the engine to reach operating temperature. 3rd. Problem w/ heat control on dash. If the control isn't working properly, you won't get heat. Some cars have a valve that opens @ the firewall in the heater hose line that will stick shut, so no flow of coolant to heater core, others (probably what u have) is a 'door' that opens and closes when heat switch is moved. This door may not be working due to vacuum control/or cable problem w/ operation of door.4th is a plugged up heater core, which is the last thing to check, because it's the most difficult and expensive heat problem to fix. Let me know what u find, hope it's one of the easy ones!

How do i change 92 chev luminas heater core


It is probably not the heater core do to most times when the heater core goes bad it stars putting water into the interior of the car. It may be the heater core supply valve or the blend door actuator is not working. Try warming the Vehicle, then carefully feel the heater hoses, are they both hot? If one is cooler than the other, You need to flush the core, or do a replacement job on the heater core. Also if the system has a heat control valve on the heater hose, make sure it is working! Also check the thermostat, and the temperature blend door, thats under the dash, in the heater plenum. You can flush this yourself, buy the prestone flush kit and install the tee in the heater return line. Disconnect the heater hose at the waterpump, clamp the hose in back of the tee you installed and back flush till it runs clear.20 mins or so.

No heat ,


Check the vacuum lines to make sure they are correctly connected and in good shape. If they are not, then the system wont move the dampers to allow hot air into the heat vents. A second possibility is a clogged heater core, which is not allowing hot water to circulate through it. As you say the head has been replaced, I would have someone insure every thing was reconnected correctly. It could be the hoses to the heater core are reversed!

98 caddy deville nothstar v8 how to replace heater coil have no heat and I'm loosing water somewhere


the heater core in a 1998 Cadillac is very tricky to replace.
start with getting a pressure test to determine where the exact location of the leak is, it may not be the heater core.
if you do decide to pull the dash apart to change the core make sure the battery is disconnected for at least an hour to allow the airbag system to discharge.

I have a 92 chrysler lebaron and there is very little heat coming from the heater. The engine is at operational Temp but no heat.


either the heat control valve isn't working, or the heater core is plugged up, what i do is reverse the heater hoses on the core to unplug the core sometimes that is all it takes but if its plugged badly you will need to replace it

Heat only works when it wants to.


could be a heat door in the heater box, or depending on your heater control unit you might try replacing it.
or you can try to flush the heater core.

Ford taurus Wagon 2001 heater problem


Check your coolant level. If the antifreeze is low the water pump may not be able to pump enough of the coolant through your heater core. When the car runs faster it is able to pump more of the warm antifreeze to the heater core.

No heat


The heater core may very well be plugged and in need of replacement. a repair centre can confirm that.
