None of these solutions are just telling you to bypass the system. I think this person actually wants heat. Ok first make sure the coolant is full. If so and you changed the therostat the heater hosses or the heater core is clogged. Take the heater hoses off going into the fire wall and inspect them for cloggs. Next hook a garden hose up to the heater core from where you took the hoses off. If you turn the hose on the water should flow fast out of the other tube. If not hook it to the other tube and try that (flushing the system) if at tbat point there is water flowing real good hook everything back up and you should have heat if not make sure the vent door is opening to change from hot to cold check for vacum leaks. But if the heater core isn't flowing sowell after the flush you will have to remove the entire dash to repkace the core .

I own a 200 Chevrolet Blazer and I have it for over 4 years mine does the same thing I actually just noticed my heat getting less. My husband found the best way to fix it and the cheapest way to fix it. He takes the tube off the heater and attaches a water hose to it and flushes out the gunk whatever is blocking the hose and after he does that the heat works great. No cost and if I wanted to I could do it because its so easy. My husband did some searching on the internet and a person that this happens all the time to let me husband know. If you need more info let me know I can ask my husband he isn't home at the moment I so I don't have exact details. Thanks Amy

As mosthated says, it's common in these. Bypassing the core "fixes" the overheating problem in summer, but you'll still have no heat. The orange coolant clots after awhile. It's definitely the heater core if you heard a running water sound under the passenger side dash (the start of your clog). If you wait until summer, the constant heat may clear it out. Have it drained, flushed and filled then. Just be careful. The clog can cause overheating. The core is cheap. It's the labor that'll cost you.

The chevy blazers are known for needing heater cores, have you had this car for along time or is this your first winter owning it... because the heater cores are real hard to put in the blazers so alot of people bypass them (disconnect them) so they dont leak all the antifreeze out...

2000 exsplorer overheats if heater is off


Thermostat is stuck..... try that first. Then look at radiator - may need replacement if calcium buildup is blocking vents and fins.
Radiator shop is best bet - they do this all the time. Had the same problem on an old Chevy - vents and fins were 90% blocked.
Mechanics kept replacing the GD thermostat......
Blockage in your radiator is usually from adding hard tap water to radiator or fill/overflow container.

My 2000 chevy 3500 6.5 turbo diesel isn't throwing out heat. where are the thermostat(s) located?


The thermostat housing is located on top and front of the engine. You will see a large radiator housing coming from it. There are 4 bolts to open the housing (15mm) and hose clamp(s) to loosen on the radiator hose. Once removed just pull out the 2 thermostats. When you are replacing the thermostat(s)-the gasket(s) for the housing are on the attached to the new thermostats- As you probably noticed when pulling out the old ones.

The heater doesn't work very well on my 2000 Chevy Venture van. I'm wondering if I should try replacing the thermostat. Or, it is all computer controlled now.


If heat gauge reads normal, stays in the middle, then you do not need to mes up with the thermostat. I own a 2000 Chevy Venture and changing the thermostat was not fan.
It may be the Temperature Control Module, which you can buy for $45 and replace without problem, or may be an partially obstructed heating core. The GM Dex-Cool antifreeze, the read one, has additives, but if you do not flush the radiator every 2 or 3 years, can result in partially clogged heater core. I have done on my car twice till now, and replaced with green Prestone, on my own risk. Hope this will help. If need more information let me know. A have the Haynes manual for Chevy Venture 2000, and I am a car dealer.

My chevy is overheating with no smoke


No smoke good cooling system is sealed, could be a thermostat, sticking or radiator fan not coming on, does it start to over heat at stops or low speeds, if so have your radiator fan check out, if it over heats at any speed, replace thermostat and check coolant level.

2000 chevy truck only heats up to 150, and its not the thermostat.


how do you know it is not the thermostat? have you pulled the thermostat. are you relying on the gage? does the heater throw out heat, if not then it has to be the thermostat. you can check the heat manually by using a meat thermometer by taking off the radiator cap and run the car for about ten minutes, then stick the thermometer into the radiator and check the temperature. If the temp is less than what the thermostat is rated, the thermostat is bad. If it's the same you could have a bad sending unit, or the gauge is faulty

2000 chevy s10 bad thermostat


the thermostat is located just above the fan shaft, or ontop of the water pump. at least on the 2.2? and 4.3l engines. Which i think was only available. You may have to remove the plastic Vortec cover to see it.
