Probably have a plugged heater core, sometimes if you hook the output line up to a hose with the input disconnected you can backwash the core and maybe clear out the stoppage. Otherwise you would need to
replace the core!

SOURCE: Heater blows cold air when idle

Sounds like you may have a partially plugged heater core. You could flush this out separately, from flushing radiator & engine block. Diconnect heater hoses going to your heater core and clamp off, so not to loose coolant from engine. Now hook up separate hose to one side of heater core pipe and flush out with typical garden hose. Repeat procedure on both heater core inlets. Reconnect original heater hoses and test difference. You may have to add an additional litre of antifreeze. If this don't work i suggest changing heater core. Good luck.........Ron.

SOURCE: 2004 Sebring: The heater blows hot air only at

Hi:
One thing to consider is your thermostat and water pump. If somehow, your thermostat is stuck open, your engine won't get up to temperature. Also, a bad waterpump won't move coolant thru the heater core. Both of these situations should show up on your engine temperature, making it hot or cold...but sometimes they don't show up if your driving pattern doesn't tax the engine..My daughter's car had a bad electric cooling fan , and never was a problem, unless she was stuck in traffic...

Is there a fuse or relay for the heater in my 2002 ford expedition


No hot air is due to low coolant, or even poor coolant flow. The engine heats up the coolant, and it passed through your heater core, and the heater blower motor pushes air through the heater core to warm up the air. If your "fan"is working, but the air is cold, make sure your coolant level is good.

2005 nissan altima heater blows cold air when stopped and blows hot air when going down the highway. What could be the problem?


Check your coolant level. If it is low, what you describe will happen. Water pump works faster as rpm's increase, managing to get hot coolant to heater core (highway speeds). At idle, pump is not working fast enough to get the coolant to the heater core.

Heater blows hot air when driving but blows cold air when idiling


A low coolant level will do this as well as a thermostat being stuck in the open position cure is to replace the thermostat another cause is low coolant flow through the heater core and could be partially plugged flushing the heater core will fix this condition hope this helps

96 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not blow out hot air


It's possible you are not getting enough coolant flow to your heater core. Try pulling the hoses off the core, blowing it out with air compressor, fill with water and blow out again. Try this about five times and see what happens. Alot of times these cores will plug up or have restricted flow. They will blow warm at low speed but it won't flow enough hot coolant through to stay hot on high blower speed.

Heater doesn,t blow hot


Have you checked your coolant? if coolant is low it can cause an air pocket in heater core and it wont pass out until rpm's increase by the extra flow of water pump. if it is full then might wanna try removing heater hoses and back flushing heater core with water might have a little trash in it restricting flow.

Heat when the fan blow at 2 but cold if the fan is at 3 speed


1st make sure the heated core is getting hot, do this by feeling the hoses under the hood that supply hot coolant to the core, if the inlet and outlet are hot then the core has circulation and is not the problem, check this and let me know what you find.
