Why am I not getting sufficient heat in my 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser?


One of two things. Most likely is that your heater core is somewhat plugged up or your thermostat is stuck open.

Is the engine reaching normal operating temp now that you have changed the thermostat ?

Over heating


Is the thermostat opening at 195 degrees ?
Does the radiator fan come on at 220 degrees ?
Can you tell if the water pump is moving coolant thru the system after the thermostat opens ? Are both radiator hoses hot ?

No heat already changed the thermostat


Check vacuum hoses. There's one between engine and firewall at the passanger side that operates ur heater. This little creature dries up due heat expossure and cracks causing a vacuum leak that will trigger ur check engine light as well..

I just bought a 2000 4x4 Dodge Durango. The temperature gauge reads properly at about half way, but the heat blows air that is not really hot even though I have the heat at maximum warm. What is the...


try feeling your heater hoses going from the engine to the heater core. they should be hot at operating temperature. If one is hotter than the other noticably it would indicate a restriction in the core most likely. A partially stuck thermostat could also cause loss of heat but you say the temp is normal. Start with checking hose temperature if they are both on the cool side compared to the radiator hose then further diagnostics are necessary. hope this helps. Keep in touch.

My 1996 Nissan pickup temp gauge does not heat up. Reads cold all the time and the heater does not blow hot just warm. Any suggestions?


Must be cold out! if you never get any heat on gauge check engine open hood and see how hot engine is getting you will know if engine is at operating temp (170-195 degrees). if yes is there a thermostat? if there is one it could be stuck open even then you should still have at least a little heat. change thermostat last resort a little cardboard in front of radiator will get you by in a fix. Exercise caution with cardboard watch gauge don't want to over heat engine...

No heat or very little heat


No heat or little heat is generally a low level of coolant in the system. Pls. chk. the level before going the extra mile of replacing the thermostat.

2000 Cherokee not warm


Aside from flushing the radiator and heater core andreplacing your hoses, did you happen to replace your thermostat. Sounds to me like that's your problem if everything else seems to be in order. If you change the thermostat and still have no heat, you might check your vacuum lines running to the back of your heater controls inside your dash. That's really the only other thing that I believe could be causing your lack of heat.

Hope this helps! Have a great day and try to stay warm!
