    my heater will stop blowing hot air,the temp. gauge will drop all the way to cool as if you just started the truck,keep running it for a minute or two and the temp. gauge will go to hot and the truck will be over heating, i have already changed the thermostat in it and checked the hose's they are not collapsing,but let it run a minute or so longer and it will be normal,anyone ever ha this problem ?

Change the thermostate and gasket after you change it let the truck heat up then cool then refill the radiator again after the thermostate opens do not open the radiaator with the truck hot or the upper hose hard

01 silverado. Not blowing hot air but yet temp gauge is at half way mark?


When the truck is at operating temperature, touch both heater hoses. More than likely one is much cooler than the other. If so then alter truck cools off remove both hoses at water pump and blow thru one until it flows freely. If both hoses are the same temp (pretty warm/hot) then the blend door actuator has gone bad. Be sure to purge cooling system if heater hoses are removed, an air pocket will cause weak heating and and engine temp. fluctuations.

I recently replaced my thermostat on my 2001 maxima and the heater still blows cold air and the temp gage rises as if the car is overheating. Is it ok to drive the car till I can fix the problem?


when the gauges are telling you that a problem exists like over heating. Cold air may mean an air lock in the cooling system. So I consider it to be foolish to risk a motor without checking the temp gauge for correct operation for starters . After running for 10 minutes feel the top radiator hose and if it is not hot to the touch but the gauge shows hot then you have a cooling system problem that would be checked by a radiator shop.. It may just need pressure bleeding to get the air out of the system

Suburban overheating and air conditioner blowing hot


If you have a viscous fan hub have it replaced as it is not working. The problem you have is that the engine is not driving the fan to draw air through the radiator when idling so the engine overheats . When moving the air flow from driving cools the radiator and so the temp goes back down. If you have electric fans have the codes read to find the fault or check why the electric fans are not working.

My 1999 Chevy Malibu runs hot? It started when it overheated. We changed the thermostat, then water pump, then temp sensor gauge and the temp gauge goes high but only when the heater stops blowing hot...


Air pockets will make the guage do that, and also cause your heat to come and go. Also, a poor radiator, as in rotting, or plugged up, will cause high temperature issues.

2004 dodge ram is over heating, the thermostat and fan clutch have been replaced.Doesn't(over heat) in cool weather,but will in mod. weather if driven over 70mph or hilly terrain due or increase of rpm,and...


Water pumps can stall out, but do you have air trapped in system.
Had you recently had the system "open" to replace hose, thermostat, temp sensor. Some Ford and GM have a bleeder screw on a high point in cooling system to bleed out trapped air.

Check your trans fluid color. Since the trans cooler is built into radiator (automatics)

IF the engine is overheating the trans CAN overheat
IF the trans is overheating the engine CAN overheat

They share the same cooling source and trans fluid gets hotter than oil, but yet it has a wimpy cooler built into radiator. Maybe add trans oil cooler to system.

Also outside temp affects the cool down rate of the radiator, ie...hot air trying to cool down hot radiator/engine is less effecting than cool air cooling hot radiator/engine
