My heater will only blow out hot ait after i have driven the truck for a while if the truck is just sitting it will only blow out cold air only what is wrong


Check both heater core hoses at the firewall to feel if they are getting hot to the touch when the vehicle has idled at normal operating temperature. If both tubes are not hot, then there is a circulation of coolant problem in the heater core. The heater core is plugged

It will have to be flushed out or replaced to rectify the situation.

Also, check the blend door. If the vacuum actuator for the blend door doesn't function then it won't allow hot air to enter the cabin.

Good luck on this repair.

Heat is blowing but its blowing cold air ...


Check if the engine temperature gauge indicates a normal reading. If it's normal, your heater core may be blocked, or the temperature control mechanism controlling the flap allowing the hot air is not working. If you can open up the hood and find the two hoses leading to the passenger compartment, see if they're both hot to the touch. If they are, then the doors are not moving properly diverting the air through the heater core. If it's cold then the core is probably blocked and may need replacement.

Heater will not blow hot


Top up Fluid level in over flow tank and radiator ( when cold ). Run engine to normall operating temperature and check for heater blowing hot air.Good starting point.

Heater will not blow hot air. it blows cold air and fan blows. new thermostat and full radiator


The heater core is possibly blocked or the temperature adjuster is not working.

First check the controls to be certain that the temperature aduster is working and the flaps/doors that direct the flow of hot air are working.

If they are..........

Check heater hose temp. If one is hot and one is cold, you are not getting flow through the heater core.

Bleed it to remove an air blockage.
If that does not work, flush the system.
If that does not work, replace the heater core.

My heater blows warm air when fan on low then when you turn the fan on high it gets cold.


This indicates that enough hot water isn't getting from the engine into the heater core at a fast enough pace to keep up with the increased demand when you have the fan on higher speeds, and that the system is restricted. If your temperature gauge is indicating the engine is at normal operating temp. or you can tell by the general temperature of the engine, then more than likely, you'll need to have the entire system cooling system tested & flushed good luck

No heat air is blowing cold


First you have to identify what causes the problem.
To do this you have to:
1) When engine is cold check the level of coolant. If it is low fill it up.
2) Start engine and check if engine reaches regular temperature. If your engine is not heated enough it means your thermostat does not work properly and should be replaced.
3) If engine temperature is normal, then check the temperature of pipes that go to/from heater core. These pipes are located up the fire wall (easier access is from the passenger side). If pipe/pipes are cold (even engine is worm) it means you heater core is plugged and should be flushed. Keep in mind, flushing the whole cooling system is different from flushing heater core.
4) If pipe/pipes are hot/warm, turn off the fan, switch controller to the hot position, wait for 3-4 minutes and turn on the fan. Note if the cold air blows first or warm air blows first but it cools down in 5-10 seconds. If the air blows cold than it is most probably the problem with blend door or blend door actuator.
5) If air blows warm first and then cools down, then while running engine and remaining the transmission in PARKING position, press on the gas pedal until your engine reaches 3,000 RPM. Check if your heater blows warm/hot air. If it does, then your water pump does not work properly and should be replaced. If the air still cold, I would suggest to flush the heater core.
