    Three years in a row this has happened. I take it to the Chevy Dealer and they get to heat great, but they won't tell me what they do to make it heat.

Heater not warming up


Most likely the thermostat broke. I expect that you have an older Hyundai and never had the anti-freeze changed. When the engine is cold the thermostat is closed which causes the engine to warm up more quickly. A warm engine runs more efficiently (less gas) and more smoothly. When the engine temp reaches a certain temp the thermostat opens and then allows the hot engine coolant to run through the lines to the heater core. The heater blows air over the heater core which produces the warm air that warms up the cabin. Thermostats used to be cheap and easy to change. I would suggest a web search for how to replace the thermostat. Something like 'hyundai accent 2002 replace thermostat".

One of two things has happened. Either your coolant has gotten really low (easy enough to check) or you heater core is starting to plug up.

When driving, heater blows warm air. When idling, cold air.


check your anti-freeze level, I'd bet that you're a little bit low!

You need to check your coolant level first. If it is low you have a coolant leak. No hot coolant=No heat

Heating system blows only cold air


it maybe a blend door problem. if both hoses at the firewall for the heater are close in temperature its not likely a heater core. the actuator for the blend door is located on the bottom of the heater/ac box towards the middle of the bottom. it will be a tight fit but you can remove it without removing any part of the dash. take it off and disconnect the power. start the vehicle and manually move the door and see if the temp changes
