If your coolant levels arent drastically low then it could be your getting to much air in the system from a bad head gasket. If those are your symptoms then I have to believe that you are losing some coolant at least.

SOURCE: No Heat and Overheating in 1999 Chevy Silverado

After replacing the thermostat, you must bleed the air from the cooling system.

To bleed air from the 2.2L and 2.5L engines, remove the plug or sensor on the top of the thermostat housing. Fill the radiator with coolant until the coolant comes out the hole. Since the plug is made out of steel and the thermostat housing is aluminum, it is a good idea to apply an anti-seizing compound or Teflon® tape on the plug threads prior to installation. Install the plug and continue to fill the radiator. This will vent all trapped air from the engine.

Any trapped air in the heating system will have to be displaced by coolant. Once the cooling system is filled, with the radiator cap off, turn of the heater at it's highest setting. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temp. You should see a drop in the coolant level as the air in the heating system is displaced by coolant. Add coolant to the proper level and replace the radiator cap.

Keep a close eye on the coolant level for at least the next couple of weeks. The cooling system is a "closed" system. Any significant decrease in coolant level indicates a problem.

If you have any questions, let me know.

1997 Chevy Silverado 1500 heater has not worked since water pump was replaced


did you bleed the system. you have to run the vehicle with the rad cap off ,controls set to hot and keep it revved up to 1500 rpm.it should girgle inside indicating movement of water. top up and overflow the rad and close the rad cap.once the heat comes thru. if no heat then go after the thermostat.

Warm air in cab but not getting the required heat . thermostat is good , core is new . but no inside heat


squirrel cage (from what i understand is the name) could be bad. its essentially the fan type blade looks kind of like a hamster wheel could have stopped rotating and isnt blowing the air into the cab. also could be your water pump. if the blade on the pump is bad then it could be circulating enough water to keep the truck cool but not enough pressure to send it to the heater core to generate the heat needed.

My cars interior is not being heated.


If the motor over heats it may be the water pump. A motor will not run very far with a bad water pump or stuck thermostat. Most of the time a water pump won't quit pumping water they leak. If the motor won't get hot enough it is the thermostat.

Heater only works on passenger side.


there is a motor actuator that moves these doors for hot and cold, two separate ones for either side. the motor unit for drivers side is no good and needs new one. replace this and all will be good.
