No heat in 93 Suburban

I have a 454 93' Suburban and no heat. I replaced the heater core, have plenty of coolant level, the fan blows good and strong. The thermostate reading is normal. Why is there no heat coming through the heat and defrost system?

There is a valve that allows heated water to flow through the heater core when you select heat on your controls. This valve should be located under the hood and one of your heater hoses should run to it. Your valve is stuck or failed for some reason. Check it out.

My 2005 Suburban only blows hot air when accelerating.

does it ever overheat? (waterpump or thermostat)

Possible clog in heater core or pinched heater hose under hood.

If coolant/water is at proper level, and you don't over heat, the later will most likely be the issue.

Heater core is small radiator deep inside under the front passenger dash and is rather hard to access.

If you smell something like coolant inside, this is for sure the issue.

Hope this helps.

Is there a fuse or relay for the heater in my 2002 ford expedition

No hot air is due to low coolant, or even poor coolant flow. The engine heats up the coolant, and it passed through your heater core, and the heater blower motor pushes air through the heater core to warm up the air. If your "fan"is working, but the air is cold, make sure your coolant level is good.

Heater blows out cool air only

Could be a stuck thermostat... or low coolant level. feel hoses going to heater core, if only one is hot while car is warmed up. i would say the heater core is plugged because this is where you get the heat for inside of car ! hot coolant goes through heater core and a fan blows it out to heat inside of car. if both are hot then the heater core is ok.

My 93 GMC suburban overheats. I will turn on the heater and cold air will blow out. Intermittently hot air will blow out and the tempreture will drop to normal levels. Im not sure where to look first.

The thermostat is bad,replace. Also, if coolant is dirty looking, you might want to take it to a garage and have the coolant system flushed. Good luck!

The heater is not blowing hot air like it should the heater core has been replaced just blowig cool air

First check your coolant level if your coolant is good then it is probably your thermostat. If the thermostat is old it can be stuck shut.

Heater not heating on 2002 suburban fan blows just does not heat up any ideas culd it be a relay switch

No, Relays control the fan running. But you said it is running. Low coolant level, clogged heater core or sticking temperature door could be the problem. Is the engine running at normal temp? Open thermostat could cause low temperature.

The heat in my 2002 hyundai sonata doesn't work, Help!!!

Is the fan working and blowing air but there is now heat?

If there is no heat and air is blowing out check your radiator level. If the engine coolant is too low water will not get to your heater core. Remeber check the radiator level and not just the coolant reservoir. Becareful when working around a hot car. wait til the car cools down to check the level of the coolant in the radiator.

No heat in 93, 454 heater

If you haven't already, try replacing the thermostat located on your engine's intake at the upper radiator hose. If that doesn't work, it may be in the control pannel for your heat on your dashboard, causing the heat switcher in your air box not to switch. Also check the cable on the air box, as sometimes when you do a heater core the cable may not be exactly back in place, or it may have been bent.
Hope this helps
Good luck
