    The blower motor does not come on. You hear nothing until about 10 minutes and the blower starts working and when the heat comes out it is hot.

For starters, do you hear the blower motor running when you turn the heat on? If it does blow is there any airflow coming from your air vents? If the blower motor runs and there is air flow from the vents there are a few other tiems to check. Veriiffy that the coolant is full, low coolant level will effect the flow of coolant to the heater core. If coolant is full you may have a clogged heater core, or one of the blend doors ( they regulate air flow between the A/C evaperator and your heater core) may be malfunctioning or the control head(temp control) is malfntioning.

Cold air getting in at the drivers right foot


That is typical for most cars. The front lower (foot area) vents allow cold air to come in just before the heater kicks in (heat value opens). If this just started, may be wait for a warm / hot day and see it continues. Sometimes people forget as this typically happen only on colder days. I wouldn't worry about it. To make it stop, turn off the heater - A/C and wait for the car to warm up before turning on the heater. The car is warm once the engine temp gauge starts to move up / show warmer. In most typical cars it takes about 5 to 7 minutes running get the engine temp up to a point where the heater will blow warmer air. If you have more details / concerns - post them, the more you include (car make, model & year, when did the problem start, anything make it worse or better, influencing conditions e.g. rain, cold, hot, dry, etc the better).

My heat In my car is not working unless u are driving then heat will blow out hot but when the car is not in motion the air turns cold. I already replace the water pump,and thermostat


sounds like its down to the last resort ,drain antifreeze then refill with cold water and add about 300grms of caustic soda ,drive around for a day or so then as soon as heater starts to work ,flush the cooling system PROPERLY then re add your antifreeze and away you go with a nice warm car

Heater is only blowing out cold air for last few days


you need to 1 check your thermostat or 2 take it to a reputable Rad shop and have them check the rad cores on you car ,sometimes they clog up and they pump coolant under pressure and it clears the core

2005 Pathfinder Heat Flow problem


I am having/had the same problem. My rear heater has not worked the last 2 winters, still trying to figure that one out. But I think I solved the front heat problem myself. The heater was blowing cold air while idling and hot air when the car was moving.

I jacked up the front of the vehicle, took the cap off of the reserve tank for the radiator, turned the car on and ran the heat (AC off) for 15 minutes. This is supposed to release any air bubbles in the coolant system and I did see air bubbles emerge as I was watching (this might be normal occurance, I'm far from a mechanical expert). Anyway, this did not immediately solve the problem, still blowing cold air as it sat there idling after 15 minutes. Dejected, I put the cap back on, lowered the vehicle and resigned myself to taking it to a dealer.

But a funny thing happened the next day, the coolant level was a lower (no leaks on the floor) so I filled up, and sure enough, when I started the car and let it warm up a little, hot air started coming out of the heater!!!

As far as my wife knows, I fixed the problem for the price of a bottle of coolant, so I am a hero...but at first I thought it didn't work. Here we are a month later and still blowing warm air and haven't had to replace any more coolant...the internet is a wonderful thing!

Hope this works for you, and I hope I can figure out my rear heater problem as well.
