HELP ASAP , OVER HEATING


you need to have the system check for pressure-it should be about 17psi -if it goes higher you have a blown head gasket which is blowing the coolant out of the system-or you might just have a radiator cap which is failing to hold pressure-up to 17psi- also youmay not be getting all the air out of the system and have an air pocket which will get super hot and steam the antifreeze- have the system vacummed down and the antifreeze will be sucked back into the system eleminating the air pockets-so you have a few things to look here-Ihopr this helps-Denny

My 1988 dodge ram 100,just does not put out enough heat and blowing power to keep up with canadian winters is there any thing i can do to get more heat and air volume.


you can try blocking the radiator with cardboard. the heat comes from your coolant so if its not producing enough heat you either are not getting the truck hot enough or you have a clogged heater core.

My 98 cavalier heat is not working it blows cold air


the simplest fix is to check your coolant level, if the radiator is low enough your heat wont come on. when the car is warmed up, switch the engine off and check the level in the over flow bottle (located on the passager side) first squeeze the upper radiator hose with a shop towel to check for back pressure. if theres too much pressure wait for the engine to cool down longer. using the towel again remove the overflow cap, the bottle is pressurized so do so slowly to allow any stem to escape without burning you. if the coolant bottle is low, topoff with DEXCOOL (GM approved coolant)
once bottle is at the 'full hot' line replace cap and start car back up and switch heat on high/defrost. odds are decent this will fix the issue,
and it will only cost you a bottle of antifreeze :)

2007 Chevy Tahoe will not blow hot air unless I'm driving. Heat works fine until I come to a stoplight, then it starts blowing cool air after sitting there for a minute or so. Any suggestions


This is pretty common with a leaking head gasket. The heater core collects the bubbles as the coolant passes through it until finally it's full. When you take off the motor turns faster and the water pump makes enough pressure to flush the bubbles on through the heater core to the radiator tank where they end up going into the coolant recovery tank. Watch the coolant tank as you pull the throttle open sharply, see if you see bubbles in it.

Blower comes on but no heat comes out


If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox

Air conditioner not blowing cold air. We put coolant with gauge reading 25 lbs pressure. We think the compressor is coming on. The pipe coming out of the compressor is cool but, the air coming into the car...


Is the air actually blowing into the car?But it's just hot?It sounds like your blower motor is not turning to blow air.you have a fuse,check the switch that controls the blower,and the blower motor it self.

96 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not blow out hot air


It's possible you are not getting enough coolant flow to your heater core. Try pulling the hoses off the core, blowing it out with air compressor, fill with water and blow out again. Try this about five times and see what happens. Alot of times these cores will plug up or have restricted flow. They will blow warm at low speed but it won't flow enough hot coolant through to stay hot on high blower speed.
