Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

1997 S10 Blazer heater will not work (I live in Minnesota)

I replaced the thermostat but that wasn't the problem.... One of the heater hoses is hot, the other luke warm to the touch. I installed a "T" w/removable cap in the water pump heater hose to check flow - there was nothing at idle. Question 1: is the water pump hose the supply side? Question 2: is there a flow control valve in the heater circuit?

    So the hose from the intake manifold is "supply/in"and the hose that goes to the water pump is "return/out", right?

Heater not blowing hot more like tepid, also temperature gauge never seems to move, can you help please,


Most likely thermostat, however first place to look is the heater hoses once the car has warmed up. If one hose is really hot and the other cold, you have either a stuck heater control valve (if the car has one) or a clogged heater core. if both hoses are luke warm, I would change the thermostat. I would suspect that it is stuck open.

Bmw e46 316 2001,heater problem...heaters only blow out luke warm air.not sure whats causing the problem,could it be the thermostat,hedgehog resistor,or heater controll valve...advice please


Touch both heater hoses under hood when car is warmed up Kane, They should both be the same temp if your heater core is working good. The next thing would be to replace the thermostat.

98 grand cherokee little heat.heater hoses hot top rad warm bottom is cold collant barely luke warm


While it doesn't seem likely, if you've changed, or had the thermostat changed.... I'd say you got a faulty thermostat. I am curious as to what your temperature gauge says the temperature of the engine and coolant is.. If your gauge is showing hot, I can think of two more possibilities... the water pump isn't pumping right... and, if the water pump isn't working right, the problem can be a cracked head or block, which can cause an airlock in the coolant system. Check the coolant or radiator cap.

I just replaced my thermostat and all fluids are full and my heat is blowing luke warm, the hose to the heater core is hot real hot still not blowing hot


Check the return line on the heater core. If its not warm or hot, the core has a clog. Will have to be replaced.

The heater only blows luke warm air. Just replaced the water pump and thermostat. Hot water on one heater hose, cool on the other. Both front and rear.


Hello...

One of 3 things could cause this, that I know. The thermostat has been installed backwards. The water pump broke soon after install. Due to it being a rebuilt one. And a small clog in the heater core. All of these things are easy to fix.

Good Luck...

Heater blowing out cool air


faulty thermostat will cause overcooling by staying open at all times.to check this.crank up vechicle until it warm up.becareful watch out for drivebbelt and cooling fan.feel all hoses.plus heater core hoses all hoses should be hot when engine warm up.if engine run until it get hot all hoses feel luke warm thermostat is bad. if all hoses get hot.check your fuses to HVAC mode switch.if all is good.you have a faulty heater air door or it could be stuck.your heater cores could be restricted stopped up.if you have climate control this is a dealership fix.
