Car over heating

I have a peuget 405 1.9 n reg, last week the heater stopped blowing hot air with only pump out cold, and now the car keeps overheating, took it to a garage they said could be water pump or head gasket, do you think this is right as i have just spent 260.00 getting it through the m.o.t.

Any leaks? if your coolant is disipearing then yes its a leak or the head gasket is eating it, make sure your over flow is full, if it keeps eating it with out leaking out of the engine you need a hg, if its not eating it and still over heating then the water pump is out or it could be leaking from the water pump also. either way your loosing coolant somewhere and the water pump cant push air so the engine over heats from lack of coolant and with lack of coolant it doesnt flow up to the thermostat and to the heater core and that is why you arnt getting heat in the car. sorry if its not an easy fix but atleast its explained clearer for you. good luck let me know how it works out

Why does the heater blow hot air when I drive after its been idling for 15min and not during the idle when it reaches the 100 Temp?...(it blows cold air in idle)


Firstly, a thermostat that opens quicker will not give you better heat. Your heater core may be partially plugged causing a low flow issue. Another area to check would be the water pump impeller for corrosion or slipping on the shaft. Does the vehicle's cooling system operate well otherwise?

My heater was working fine last week ,then i noticed it was getting cooler in car then it just blows col to cold air this week it a 1977 300d


If the car overheats also, replace thermostat.Could be heater core needs to be replaced, Any water on passenger side floor?, or smell of coolant?or are windows misty on inside of car?when you slide control from cool to heat it is supposed to close a door that lets in cold air, make sure thats working, usually you can hear it shut. lastly, check water pump. You do have enough coolant in system right?

Fiat seicento 2000 reg keeps overheating after going 5 or so miles, light comes on then grumbling and water from expansion tank. had new radiator switch put on, took fan off and tested-works ok- but not...


This may be a puzzle...
The seicento (I drive the same car) likes to create problems in the heater section of the cooling system. The small pipes to it (behind the carburator) may be blocked or the entire heater may simply be dirty. Flushing the system with a water hose may help. Usually this problem starts slowly and goes away if you re-start the engine and then excellerate a few times. Check if your heater blows hot air - if yes, and if he keeps blowing hot air (does not cool down and get cold) ther is no blockage. If you have a blockage, your heater will only blow hot for a little while and then comes normal cool air - if this is the case, you have a blockage right in your heating system which runs your cooling system hot and the cap of your cooling tank will start leaking. This is a comon problem on older Seicentos....
Other general problems can also be the case, like defective thermostat, fan motor does not come on (check fuse and relais first).
In some cases, ther might be some air trapped in the cooling system and doing the above will also cure it. At last, check if your water pump is working.

2001 Dodge Caravan heater blows cold air when stopped


Have you checked the coolant level? What you describe is exactly what happens if the coolant level is low. When stopped at idle, hot coolant is not circulating through the heater core, so no heat. As the engine increases in rpm's when you pull away from the light, the water pump is spinning quicker, and some coolant is making it to the heater core. So check the level, and if it is low, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine. Let me know how you make out with this.

Heater is blowing cold air 1999 dodge stratus


A heater blowing cold air can be a few things. have all of these things check for proper operation to find the source of the problem.
1. Coolant level
2. Thermostat
3. Water Pump
4. Heater control valve
5. Make sure that the heater control doors are closing when you switch from hot to cold.
6.Last but not least if the climatic controls are electric it maybe at fault.
Good Luck
