Check the coolannt level first to make sure its full....on the thermostat all you have to do is follow the top radiator hose to the to of the motor and youll find it there.

I have a 2002 chevy blazer 4wd 4.3l I overheated the engine and blew an intake gasket replaced it but now it shifts at high rpm and idle when started is around 1100 but when I put it in park after I drive...

On over heating an engine there are several items that tend to warp from the heat. The intake manifold required a new gasket so a good place to start would be checking for a vacuum leak in this area as it will alter the idle rpm from incorrect air/fuel ratio mix. Run fault codes to see if any sensors were affected by the over heating engine.

We have changed the heater core,,, and thermostat.. it is still blowing cool air... i bought the coolant temperature sensor but dont know where it goes is it behind the dash board also?

Hi I have a 2002 JGC ltd and it is most likely your dampeners or louvers located behind your dual temp controls for driver and passenger sides that control the direction of air flow from air outside in, circulation, heat to windshield, centre and or to floor etc. I had a friend that had heat only to the passenger side and cold air blowing to driver side. He took it in and they replaced stuck dampeners and it was not cheap. I also had a 98 JGC ltd with the (coolant sensor is bad) warning coming on at least 4 to 5 times in a day and had heat. My problem is that my interior glass was fogging up, used glass defogger and stop leak. The problem was fixed but I still smell antifreeze because of the leak and it is irritating me. I may consider replacing the heater core and was wondering if you took it in or did it your self and how did you do it if you replaced it yourself, plus how much did it cost you?

1996 Ford Thunderbird LX - AC/Heating A few months back I had my AC recharged (At the time my heating still worked) and it worked fine for awhile, but about a month after that I would turn the defrost on...

hi ,look under your dash near the blower and find a 4 or 5 wire plug going in near the blower,unplug it and remove the screws holding it in place ,pull it out ,it will be about half a cigarette packet in size when youve got it out in your hand ,this is most likely your problem part ,its a heater resistor ,it controls your fan speeds,it should be a white chalky resistor or an alloy heat sink type ,they come in 2 ways as i've stated,phone a ford specialist junkyard or auto wrecker or a new ford dealer and give them the part number it has on it and your thunderbird specs or ID numbers and you should be able to locate a replacement without too much bother .
THANK YOU for using FixYa

Repeated ignition coil failure

That shouldn't happen...but, I'd check the operating voltage to see if it's overcharging...coil will operate at higher voltage but won't last long. Best voltage should be about 13.5, can go to 14 but that is a bit high. If high, you may have a regulator problem.
If everything else is ok, it may be sustaining heat damage. cure for that is to place a square of aluminum about 1/8" thick between the coil and mount to act as a heat sink,(takes a bit of fabrication) or extend the wiring and move the coil to a cooler location.

2004 JGC Limited v8 AWD--My heat does not go on

Do both heater hoses under the hood get hot at the heater core? The core might be plugged. If it is you can backflush it with a garden hose.

My heating blows cold after a couple of minutes????

I dosen't last long either...maybe it's catching!!! Was it making heat before you changed the stat? did you put it in the right way (spring part into engine) Try running it with the cap off and heat on high. there could be air in the heater. Also check that the electric fan is not staying on or coming on too early.

Heating and air conditioning

The blower motor works on high setting ONLY when the blower resistor is bad. The blower motor resistor is held in place with 2 screws and attached into the heater housing under the right side of the dashboard. You can identify the resistor by the big wires that are connected to the connector. If this heating/cooling system is the auto temp type, the part is a bit high on the price.

Dual climate zones. One hot, other cold, both set on high.

Go to I bought one for my jgc and now it's working great. It's the blend doors that are broken. My has dual temp controls but it still worked for mine. The only thing is, the passenger side heat and air temp stays the same as the driver's side. Who cares!!!!!! It's warm and a whole lot cheaper than what the dealer costs. It took approx. 1 hour and $120.00 for the part. I paid $20.00 extra for express shipping. It's getting cold in Tennessee.

When i run the heat or air cond. i smell water and windshield fogs up in the middle.

Sounds like your heater core is bad. Have someone check out the heating system and possibly replace heater core.. that should take care of the fog problem also by enabling you to use the defrost... Good Luck!
