Have your heater core checked , or remove both the lines and hold a hose to one of them , turn the water on a little and see if it comes out the other tube. If it does then your heater core is fine.

What part of the country are you located in? is it hot in that area alot? see if you can follow your fuel lines if they are not inside of a frame rail from the fuel tank forward. you could wrap your fuel line once it comes out of the rail going to the fuel distribution area of the motor. it might be to close to a heat source which boils the fuel before it get to atomized.

I am not getting heat all the time into my 1990 Maxima I flushed the system and replaced the engine themostate. Water flows threw the heater coil. What is next?

There are 2 thing is can think of right off the bat. Is the blower motor working? If your heater core and heater valve are working, is your duct valves working? They open and close using the car vacuum. When you shift your control to heat, you should hear the duct open or close. allowing only heat from the heater core. You may have a bad actuator valve or a leaking vacuum hose. That's all I can think of right now, hope this helps

No heat blowing out of heater. changed themostate and checked fuses

The heater tap is not working, find it under the hood where the heater pipes go through the bulk head, If the tap works there is a blockage in the heater radiator or the tap is faulty or the controller inside the car is faulty.

My 93 chevy caprice has new water pump and themostat but temp gauge still indicates its still running hot.

Could possibly have a clogged radiator, Which engine does your caprice have? You also need to make sure all air is purged from the system.

When does it over heat, all the time, or just when idling?
