The coolant lose is possibly causing the no heat problem. the lack of enough coolant to fill the heater core can cause it not to heat the car up. you need to find the leak. what engine you have????

    the water pump is under the timing cover and hidden. look around the passenger side lower part of the motor and see if you dont see an orange colored residue. it is also possible the bars leak has plugged the heater core

Has very little heat has new thermostat!


Was the heater working ok before you fitted the new thermostat?
If no, you probably have a blocked heater matrix. That means you have to either try flushing the coolant system to remove the blockage .. or.. replace the heater matrix, which isn't an easy task.

If the heater was working ok before you changed the thermostat then it's likely you still have air in the system.

Set the heater controls to hot, remove the radiator cap/coolant bottle cap and start the engine. Let it tickover and warm up. Hopefully any trapped air will be purged from the cooling system.

Are you sure that the thermostat is okay? Thermostats have a small valve in that allows air to pass through. If your thermostat is mounted like a clock ..i.e .. the face looking out - the air valve must be at the top.

Chevy monte carlo 3.4l replaced thermostat and water pump, thought i bled it right but ran good for two days now running hot again, no heat coming out of blowers, right after i fixed it heater worked good,...


Was the water pump leaking? did you overheat the engine? you may have head gasket issues. If you can bleed th eair out and it works ok a few days, then it has air in it again, most likely you have a bad head gasket.

2001 Audi S4 Heater doesn't work


Thermostat has failed (stuck open) and needs replacement. It's a big job (5-6 hours charged labor for a shop), and requires the front of the car to be removed. Here's a pic of my car (B5 A4) a few weeks ago when I changed mine:

There's no way around it either - removing the front of the car is the only way to access it.

No heat


Sounds like you have a clogged heater core. Sometimes heater cores can be flushed, but more times than not, it has to be replaced. If you've replaced the thermostat and your lower radiator hose is always cold, chances are it is the heater core. Hope this helps! Have a great day!

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!

Heater works good then all at once starts blowing cold air


You will have to replace the thermostat...It sounds like the thermostat is not opening and closing all the way. When the car is running fast enough to heat up the water, great...heat...but at stops the thermostat is not closing all the way allowing the water to cool as it passes through the heater.
