No heat in heater when idiling when reviv motor up has a little heat and heats up when ideling in traffic

when you turn on the heater fan it functions and increases speed with selection low - med - high ? forceful air coming from the floor or defroster ? what year focus we all need you to be specific here for us to help you. I'm not there at the car with you and I can't look at it myself so I/we need you to give all the information so I/we may help you find the problem it's cold out right you want heat right here's what I have to guess at the blower motor resistor is bad if no increased air from the heater when you turn on the fan blower/ or the heater case blend door actuators wires are disconnected or the motor inside is burnt or the connectors dirty inside here's what they both look like
this is the blend door actuator look for it on the heater case
this is the blower motor resistor and it is located on the firewall next to the a/c evaporator case these photo's are for a 2002 what year is your car?

09 town & country chime ringing seatbelt always on

If it's your tire pressure monitoring system, then you may have a low tire. The tpms light in the dash will be on too. As the vehicle is moving, the tires generate heat which will increase the temperature inside the tire, which will also increase the pressure inside the tire, which will turn the tpms light off. The light only comes on when the tire is low so add air to the tires to bring them to the manufacturers recommended tire pressure on the placard on your drivers door or drivers door frame. I do not know of any tpms system that chime when a low tire situation is present. If it's actually the seatbelt causing the chime, then there should be a seatbelt light that comes on in the dash as well. The seatbelt sensor may be malfunctioning. Otherwise, the chime may be due to another issue. Check your owners manual for possible causes.

Cant find the heater fuse

Hi Jennifer, What do you want to acheive. I ask this because there will be a fuse for the fan blower and another for the AC There may be another for the climate control but non for the actual cabin heater as warm air is generated from the engine and flows through a small radiator inside the cabin. The flow is controlled by a mechanical valve which when opened or closed allows a greater or lesser volume of coolant to flow into it and thereby increases or decreases the heat in the cabin. The heated air is circulated by the fan. Hence my question of "what is wrong?" regards John

When I turn on the heat this winter i found that I lose my heat when i stop at a light or running in idle.The heat works the best when i have the control on low fan, but it takes for ever to heat up. ...

When you hit your gas, the volume increases in your radiatior and the hot water circulates. When you are low on antifreeze or coolant, it doesn't circulate during idle. Check your coolant levels and make sure the thermostat is opening when the engine heats up. Do this by running the engine with the radiator cap off. When it heats to 190 degrees, you should see the level drop, start to steam and start to move. Don't forget to rate me high please.

Took out the thermostat, replaced the radiator, the water is circulating in the radiator but it is still running hot. what do i do next?

Overheating can seriously damage a car's engine if left unchecked. Although overheating simply means that a car's engine temperature exceeds normal operating temperatures, the causes of overheating are varied. What follows is a brief list of some of the most common causes of engine overheating.

    Faulty Radiator
  1. A car that overheats will often have a faulty radiator. A radiator is responsible for cooling hot engine coolant that picks up heat from inside a car's running engine. A radiator "radiates" the heat from engine coolant out into the outside air. A faulty radiator loses its "radiating" effects and allows engine coolant to become overheated, thus rendering it ineffective at adequately cooling and engine.
  2. Faulty Water Pump
  3. A faulty or malfunctioning water pump prevents adequate engine coolant flow and can cause a car to overheat. A water pump serves to pressurize and propel engine coolant throughout a car's engine and radiator to increase the heat-reducing capabilities of engine coolant. A faulty water pump loses its ability to adequately pump and propel engine coolant, and can cause a car to overheat.
  4. Coolant System Leaks
  5. A leaky engine coolant system reduces the level of circulating engine coolant, which increases engine temperature and leads to engine overheating. Radiators, water pumps, and coolant system hoses and seals--all of these coolant system parts can develop leaks, which can result in low coolant levels and engine overheating.
  6. Faulty Thermostat
  7. A car thermostat regulates the flow of engine coolant. A thermostat is a heat-sensitive valve that opens when a car engine reaches a set operating temperature and closes when a car engine is cold and warming up. If a thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant will be prevented from reaching the engine, which will quickly lead to engine overheating and potential engine damage.
  8. Low Engine Oil Level
  9. Engine oil, in addition to lubricating an engine's internal parts, helps to keep engine operating temperatures reduced by eliminating friction within the engine. If engine oil levels are low, friction and heat build up inside an engine, a condition that causes increased engine operating temperatures and can lead to engine overheating.

2001 jeep cheokee limited, straight v6, 4.0 liter engnie - oil pressure is droping to 20 when stopping and rising to 40-50 when accelerating. No check engine light is coming on when this occurs. Any idea...

A low reading of 20psi is not dangerous. As an engine wears, clearances increase and allow some oil to escape out the sides of the bearings. Even at 15 psi you would still be OK.
There are several other causes for a low reading. Make sure the oil is not contaminated with fuel (smell the oil on the dipstick). If the oil has been in service too long, pressure can also drop...Oil has a VI rating (viscosity index). Especially in inexpensive oils this index is maintained by additive packages added to the oil base. Those additives break down from heat and shearing forces inside the engine.
If you are using any 5w oil (except synthetic) discontinue using it. Even in colder climates, most engines don't need anything that thin. Most synthetic oils are thinner than conventional lubricants and will give low that case, it's not a problem because they are so far superior that there is no sacrifice in protection.
As far as the difference between at idle pressure and at speed pressure, that is normal. Your oil pump is driven off the camshaft. As the engine rpm's increase the pump spins faster, giving you higher pressure as needed. When I build any engine, I always use a high pressure high volume pump. Even with those, idle pressure is lower than driving pressure and pressure always becomes slightly lower as the oil heats up.
So, the pressures you see are good, providing you hear no noises. Use a good quality oil 10w or 20w (better) as a first # and no less than 30 as the second number. If you want to add your own additive package, Use Lucas oil stabilizer or a small amount of marvel oil. Lucas will increase the VI number and marvel is a good cleaner as well as the fact that it seeks out hot spots where other oils run from them. Change your oil at 3,000 to 4,000 miles (depends on how hard you drive), Always use a good quality oil filter and you should not have a problem
