Question about 2006 Pontiac G6

No heat in a 1992 Pontiac Bonneville

The hose going to the NEW heater core is hot, but the top one going back to the engine is cold. There is no valve to control the fluid. I have back flushed, changed the thermostat, radiator and water pump all to no avail. The door which regulates the heat is working properly and is adjusted correctly. Does anyone have any idea why the coolant won't flow through the core? If I run the engine in drive vs. over drive, some heat is felt. I've also pinched the hoses thinking there could be an air bubble. This is the second winter with this condition. Car has 236K. It's got me confused...

    I should have noted that, but I tried that as well. I also changed the hoses which I also didn't say anything about. TKS!!!

Are you sure there is no blockage on the return into the engine? You might try forceing some water through the return hose to the engine while the feed hose to the heater core is off so you can watch
for flow. The only other thing might be low on coolant ( air pocket ). Good luck. Neil W.

03 bonneville that only blows out heat once in a while


Could be a lot of things (i.e. thermostat, heater control valve...) Does the temperature gauge reach normal (1/2 way) temps?
Check to see if the control valve is working. Here's one way to do it. On the passengers side, remote the lower panel just under the glove box. Should be a couple of plastic pins holding it in. With the car running at normal temperature, move the hot/cold slider lever to HOT, then to cold slowly and see if the valve (located on top of the heater core) is moving. I "think" the heater control panel is vacuum operated and you may have a split in the plastic hose(s). Listen for a vacuum leak...
Good Luck. I hope this helps.

I have a 98 Bonneville, the heater/defroster is blowing out cold air. I drove around for 30 to 40 minutes checked the radiator and it was cold to the touch. could it be the thermostat


The dash gauges are notoriously inaccurate. But it is possible that the thermostat is stuck open. Does the upper radiator hose get hot after engine warmed up? Also feel both heater hoses-when engine is warm, both should be hot-indicating the coolant is circulating through the heater core. If heater hoses are hot, and you still have cold air, the temperature blend door on the heater case may not be operating.
Try a new thermostat and see if engine warms up faster and better.

My heat is not working in a 97 pontiac bonneville


You have correctly trouble shot a plugged heater core. Install a back flush kit on the car. They can be had at an auto parts store. Get new anti freeze too.

Heat not working


Check to see if the heater core hoses going into the firewall are hot when the engine radiator hoses are hot. If one heater core hose is hot and other is cool, then the heater core is blocked/plugged. If they are both cold then the hoses are blocked. Trace them both back to the engine and make sure there is no on/off valve on the intake to turn on. Some of those valves are vacuum operated or electrical. Just depends. For a quick fix. You can remove that valve and install a screw in fitting to the intake manifold that has a barb on the end to slip a hose over. But the heat will always be on hot.

2001 Lincoln LS heater blows cold air...someone said it was the DCCV Dual Climate Control Valve on the front of the car. I am looking for the inlet hose from the valve to the heater core...is it the...


When the engine is cold,check the coolant level.

Make sure it's on max.

===

A coolant system should be flush every two years.

===

If you did a coolant flush recently then air pocket can be the cause of the un-even heating problem.

The DIY method is to drive you car onto a ramp or a steep hill.

Iet the engine cool off and top off the coolant tank.

Set MAX heat + MAX fan

Let the engine ran for 20 minutes wih the cap off and the trap air will escape from the coolant reserve tank,

Check coolant level and top off coolant when the engine cools down.



A shop will charge $75+ for this but using an air operated excavate tool!

========

A car with over 90K miles may experience linkage problem to the heater control valve.

The heater control valve (near the firewall) may be stick over time.

Open the hood and move the heater to max and min. Back and forth.

Clean and lube the linkage with WD-40 to free the heater control valve.

If it's a vacuum type heater control valve then cash for leaky vac. hoses.


=======
Move the fan switch back and forth to re-new the electrical conductors.

Pass a vacuum over the control panel to prevent dust build up behind the console.

I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee and the heater does not heat


Check to see if the temp door is changing to heat,If that is fine,Then make sure the thermostat is good,maybe just replace it,and refill the radiator,and reservoir with coolant.The heater hoses going into the heater core need to be checked,while the engine is real hot,to make sure the heater hose going in the heater core,and out of the heater core are both to warm to hold by the naked hand.If only one of them is hot,and the other one is warm,to cold to the touch,then remove the heater hoses from the heater core,and use a water hose to flush the heater core out.Put the water hose in one side and flush the heater core out with the force of the water hose pressure.Then do the other heater core pipe the same way.Then replace the heater hoses back on the heater core,and refill the radiator.Make sure to get enough coolant back in the radiator.If there is not enough,the coolant will not flow threw the heater core and put out heat.I hope this is helpful,and you can do the work yourself.You may want to check those heater hose first thing.And change the thermostat anyway,sense you will have some coolant lose from flushing the heater core.If this helps,please let us know,thank you.

Follow these steps:

Check coolant level, then start engine until it is warm and the thermostat opens. You will tell when it does when the needle on your temp gauge goes cold when it reaches around 180-200* and then goes back up. Now turn on your heater full blast and go to the engine compartment. You will see a heater valve located on the passenger side, next to the washer reservoir. It is a black thing with 4 heater hoses connected to it. Feel the hoses. When everything is working correctly it should be like this:

Hose going to waterpump will be hot
Hose going to (I think the thermostat housing) will be hot
2 Hoses going to heater core (mounted behind firewall) will be hot

1. If only 1 heater core hose is hot, heater core is clogged--
UNCLOG: remove 2 hoses going to heater core when engine is cool, hook water hose end to one of the sides and flush out gunk from heater core. Reconnect hose and you should be good.

2. If neither hose core hose is hot, heater control valve is bad or vacuum is bad--
Test Vacuum: remove vacuum line from heater control valve, you should feel the vacuum **** on it when pressed to your cheek and the heater control valve actuator should move when you unhook the vacuum line. If you have a good vacuum, it's probable the valve available at autozone part # 5941 for around $21.

To get heat while you wait to replace part, unhook silver arm on heater control valve that is hooked to the plunger. This will give you heat all of the time, but it is controlled by the bottom hot/cold switch on your heater control unit so you won't get hot in the cab. It will just circulate heat through the core.
