You most likely nave air in the system. You need to refill the system and bleed out the air.

First check to see if there is proper amount of coolant in the reservoir and then put on gloves while engine is running squeeze upper radiator hose together if hose trys to open up while holding it the water pump is probably still working and when was last time drive belt was changed because it could cause this problem because it is slipping

1992 2.6 mazda proceed there's a light on dash that says heat came on yesterday so left over night when started light came back on have just bought vechicle and had changed oil and filter

Are you saying temp light came on? Check radiator coolant, and if low use instructions to refill. if coolant is ok, check if hose going from top of radiator to motor is warm after running for five or ten minutes. if not shut motor off and dont drive it. You probably need to change the thermostate where the hose goes to motor. if you continue driving you may blow a headgasket. A thermostat is an easy replacement. Two bolts. just make sure you place it right side up.

Tahoe heater

Low coolant level would create a low/no heat condition.Operating temperature would be affected by a stuck open thermostat along with coolant passing through the heater core where the heater obtains its "heat".

No heat when stopped for traffic

1-your thermostate is stuck open half way. thermostate is a simple device that made of enlarging metals when heat is applied. it suposed to be in close position to allow engine heat up, when specified temp reached it opens and let it flow and radiator tries to keep coolant cool.when it is broken it stucks or it acts slow or it wont acts at all. in your situation it is stuck open half way. it allows enough water to be heated but flow is limited to heat cabin heater.

2-if there are cabin heater selenoid/selenoids for two different temperature for cabin left and right, on some instance those selenoid valves to adjust cabin heater stuck open or closed like thermostate acts on first case. so heat is not enough to heat up cabin heater.

I have a 2000 Mercury Cougar and the gauge inside tells me that the engine is over heating, no heat is coming from the heater when I turn it on, the fan for the engine is running at full blast, the engine...


The overheating and lack of cabin heat both point to a failed engine thermostat which would be stuck closed. At the warm up stage, the coolant stays in the engine block to bring the engine to efficient operating temperature, then it opens and circulates the coolant through the radiator and heat core. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the engine will overheat, and coolant will never reach the heater core, and you will not get cabin heat.

Blinking oil light at idle which goes away during driving could be a low oil level, but may also be a drop in oil pressue. You could have a clogged oil fliter (at best) pickup tube, or a failing oil pump.

I cant get much heat in my 2000 chevy venture

check if your thermostate is working... is it having troubles getting to operating tempurature?
check your heater lines that run to the heater core and see if there is heat getting to and from the heater core if the thermostat is running properly...
if you have heat running to and from the heater core then check and make sure your heater controls in the van are switching between defrost and heat and floor properly
could be a heater box problem ....
when i had the same problem with my venture it turned out to be a plugged heater core and i replaced it

I have a 2000 Tracker and the heat just stopped working - What could be the cause?

There are thermostates the will stick in the open postion1 this will cause you not to get heat if that is the issue. Air in the cooling system will cause this too. Or low coolant check your coolant level!
