    My 2000 Dodge Caravan heater does not work either. The engine comes up to temp, and cools fine, but I only have heat when I am driving down the highway. The rest of the time it just blows cold air?? I ruled out the thermostat because my engine heats and cools without any problems. Am I correct?

Possibly low on coolant or bad thermostat would cause this...if low on coolant check the waterpump for a leak

2003 PT Cruiser . We have tried every thing replaced thermostat + flushed radiator + replaced hoses + checked fan but two days later it over heats when moving in very slow traffic


HAve you check for a bad water pump?.. sometimes even new thermostat are defective too.
Do you know if your car has a relieve valve to bleed the cooling system. If the system has air it will over heat at low RPM's. Sometimes even flushing the radiator wont firx a cooling system with air.
So make sure about these two things I mentioned.

I have a 2001 Ford Expedtion and I am having major problems with the heat........I have flushed the system about 5 times and they most recently replaced the heater core. After working good for one month...


You need to have a pressure chek done on the engine cooling system. this will tell you if you have any leaks. some that you can't see. this is the main reason for loosing heat constantly.

My crv heat does not work well. Takes forever to heat if it does at all. The thermostat rarely moves from cold. Warm weather there is not a problem.


The thermostat could be stuck open or even missing. (previous owner could have removed it.) It is inexpensive and easy to change (or add). A new one could possibly solve your problem.

No heat changed thermostat and just pulled the heater core which seems fine water from kitchen faucet flows thru both ways but cant find any control valve in the heater hoses to see if it is working


firs check both heater hoses are hot to the heater core after it is warmed up. If they are hot the heat cool door is not moving make sure the linkage for the actuator door is hooked up. If that isnt working test the module that moves it.If it is manually or vaccum operated there will be a heater valve inline the heater core hose. Make sure your vaccumm is supplied to the heater box from the engine. If it is staying on defrost you may be missing vaccum supply to the heater control. If it is electronically controlled the door actuator module is bad or not getting power. Sometimes the heater hand controls are the problem. sometimes the dash control separates and gives a vaccum leak.

No heat


If everything else is working, air direction and selection, blower speeds etc. Then first make sure coolant level is full if it is then make sure your thermostat is opening by watching your temp gauge on the dash and feeling your radiator hoses, both upper and lower, after the car has ran for about 10 minutes or so. Going into the engine they should be fairly close in temp. Then check your heater core for blockage by feeling your heater hoses coming out of the passenger compartment along the firewall in the engine compartment, they also should be fairly close in temp. If one is hot and the other cool then youor heater core is blocked. Also check your blend door, this is the door that controls airflow over your heater core or a/c evaporator in the air distribution compartment. When you move the control you can sometimes hear it moving from inside the car. Otherwise you will have to get up under the dash and listen and look to see if its moving. Hope that helps.

Cannot get heat even after changing thermostat in 1992 honda accord what do i check next


Check the heater control valve. It is usually behind the engine up next to the firewall. Have someone inside the car move the heater control to heat. A lever on the heater control valve should move when this is done.

This valve allows hot coolant to enter the heater core inside the car. If this hot coolant doesn't arrive, you have no heat.
