Make sure you have a 50/50 mix of coolant and water. All coolant with no water will not heat well. Also make sure the door/air deflector is opening to let air flow from the heater core box.

2006 dodge grand caravan replaced thermostat and radiator, still no heat?? And the van is running hot


How hot is the engine in degrees F? With a fully warmed engine are the heater hoses, hot? Check coolant flow through the heater core. If no coolant flow through the heater or engine, I'd have to check water pump.

Sometimes when the cooling system is opened, it may get air in the system, your temp gage may be reacting to air in the system?

No heat in my 97 dakota noticed when motor is warm both of the radiator hoses are cold what is causing this


good day, heater core/coil is leaking antifreeze and needs to be replaced. The heater core works in conjunction with your engine's cooling system. The function of the cooling system is to remove heat from the engine, and it does this for the most part by sending the heated anti-freeze to the radiator located in the front of the car. The position of the radiator allows outside air to blow across the radiator thus cooling the anti-freeze. The anti-freeze is then sent back to the engine. Hot anti-freeze is circulated throughout the cooling system by the radiator and heater hoses. Think of the heater core as a small radiator located inside the dashboard of your vehicle. hope this helps, have a nice day.

I have a 1995 Grand Cherokee out a new thermstat


If the engine is getting hot enough it sounds like the flow through the heater core is restricted. When it is hot turn the heater on and feel the radiator hoses. One should be real hot and the other a little cooler, not much. Try taking the heater hoses off and run water from a garden hose through them. Run both directions and maybe it will break something loose. You won't lose much antifreeze by unhooking the heater hoses.

1992 mazda mx3 heater blows warm, but not hot. Coolant is full, heater hoses are hot. What is wrong?


Hot air is dependent on the coolant temperature and the heater core. There are several things that can cause your problem. The easiest to check is the coolant level in the radiator\reservoir. There must be enough coolant to flow freely between the engine and the heater core. The next is the thermostat. If the thermostat is not closing it would prevent the the coolant from reaching a high enough temperature to allow for hot air. The thermostat is not expensive or difficult to replace. The third thing is a blockage in the heater core. Flush the coolant system properly can sometimes take care of this. If it does not the only alternative is a new heater core.
Hope this helps.

1992 mazda mx3 heater blows warm, not hot


If it ran out of water and you filled it up just before the problem started then their may be air in the system so will need bleading. If that's not the problem then could be a sticking thermostat. Vheck these first and let me know if you need further help I can advise further. Cheer's

Heater blows out cold air when on the warm setting ,possibly a plugged heater core


yes this is very likely the problem, have you check your cooling system is it rusty? if so the heater core is plugged, take the inlet and outlet hoses off the core at firewall and use a garden hose to clear it, then have the cooling system flushed if rusty.

No heat


This sounds like one of two things, either there is not enough coolant in the system, or the heater control system is messed up. try this, with your car running at about 205 degrees (feel the upper radiator hose, it should be hot to the touch) grab both of the hoses going into the heater core behind the engine, the should be warm to hot. if they're not warm at all, or just luke warm, you either don't have enough coolant, or the hoses are blocked somewhere. if there is a valve in line with one of the hoses, try to operate it by hand, sometimes those valves (called heater valves) fail.

if the coolant is full and there is hot coolant in both hoses going into the heater core, then you're controls inside are likely the problem. try to turn the heat control from cold to hot and back again a few times, you should be able to hear a clapping sound,it might be very faint, so listen carefully. if you can't hear anything, it's likely the controls itself, unless you hear a hissing sound from behind the dash when you turn the control, that would be a vaccuum line unhooked. you'll have to pull some panels under the dash to find this vaccuum line to hook it up, but it's not too hard , just takes patience. (it's more common for a heater control to go first)
