Disconnect the heater hoses from the water pump and the intake manifold. Get a compressor and blow out the hose (put the air hose into the the hose that came off the mainfold. then flush the system and replace the antifreeze.

SOURCE: The heater in my 2001 Sierra Z71 takes a long time

THE 1ST THING U DO IS GO UNDER THE HOOD WHEN ENGINE IS HOT, CHECK THAT BOTH HEATER HOSES (INLET AND OUTLET) ARE GETTING HOT, IF ONLY ONE IS HOT FLUSH THE CORE, IF BOTH ARE JUST WARM THEN THE THERMOSTAT IS DEFECTIVE IN THE ENGINE, REPLACE IT, LET ME KLNOW WHAT YOU FIND.

2001 olds alero. replaced thermostat last year. Heater still not blowing warm air just cold. AC works. Defrost blows cool air.


Heater core is bad. Part is about $40...labor is around $700. The entire dashboard has to be removed and this is a major time involved job. It takes 10 to 12 hours.

How do you remove the rear dums on a 2001 Oldsmobile mini van?


with every thing out of the way and you don`t have a torch to warm the drums, take a hammer and hit the drum between the wheel studs hard this should pop the drums loose, what happens is they get rusted/corroded to the hub assembly and need help to get loose.
