The problem may be the switch that controls the temp of the air. It may be out, or the servo it controls may be out. To test this you have to take a lot apart as the servo is located inside the heater box. I would have a mechanic look at it. It could also be a bad heater core. Water leaking into the floor is a good sign of a bad heater core.

2001 VW Beetle 2.0 heater won t heat up

If you flushed the coolant with the thermostat in, chances are you didn't flush the coolant. Regardless, it's easiest to check the controls inside first. Does the blower fan work? Does the air flow change from floor to vent, to dash as it's supposed to? Does the A/C change temps when knob is turned from cold to hot? Post results.

Heater not putting out hot air like it should

Put in a low temp themostat and see if this helps. Also check your mix on your antifreeze. Make sure it is 50/50 or what ever the dealer recommends.

The heater gives a little heat but, not hot air. F-150 4x4 4.6 L engine After warm-up the heater puts out a little warmth but, that is it. It will not get hot like normal during daily operation. I have...

Flushing the system and adding new antifreeze would have been my first suggestion, so, thanks for mentioning that.

We should check a couple of other things.

1. Start the engine, let it run for 6 to 8 minutes, ( with the heater off ), to allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature. Then, turn your heat and fan wide open, then listen to the engine to see if you hear a click, you should be able to hear the thermostat open up to circulate the coolant. If you do not hear a click, you may have a stuck, or partially stuck thermostat.

If the thermostat doesn't open, the hot water/coolant will not flow in to the heater core.

2. In the back of the engine, on the fire wall, locate the inlet and outlet hoses to the heater core. They are both usually about 1 inch in diameter. Carefully feel each hose. Both should be hot. If only one is hot it's because you have blockage somewhere preventing the circulation of coolant to the heater core.

The most common area for blockage is in the heater core itself. Sometimes flushing doesn't clear it out.

I hope this will help you resolve the problem.

My van is overheating. The coolant is full. The heater won't get warm. The fan is working.

Check your thermostat to see if it is sticking. You may need to replace it. It is located within the large hose coming from the radiator and at the engine where the bolts attach.

Heater gets warm but not hot? 1995 dodge Dakota

Do you know how to carefully feel heater hoses to see if coolant getting to heater core is hot enough? Has thermostat been changed lately, and coolant system flushed?

Car is running hot occasionally and the serpentine

Well there's only part that has to do with the cooling system and serp belt - the water pump!! Maybe it's starting to seize or has too much play. Either way, when you change the water pump, replace the thermostat and flush the system very thoroughly, those 98-99's are notorious for rust build up. Make sure to pull the heater hoses off and flush the heater core too. After all said is done, purge the coolant and make sure there is heat from the blower. If not you're going to have to replace the heater core because that gets clogged sometimes when flushing.
