Fill the tank with the CORRECT antifreeze up to the fill line (There should be two lines - a "Hot" and a "Cold"). Find out where you are losing your antifreeze - look for a puddle under the vehicle after you fill it. If no puddle, run until the vehicle is warm, shut it down, and look for a puddle.

If your cooling system was empty, you may have to bleed the system after filling the tank. A shop manual for the vehicle should tell you whether you have to bleed the system.

Try this disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core use a hose to backflush the core. Then reconnect and try again.

SOURCE: rear heat in 2004 gmc

I have a 2006 yukon and have had to replace the actuator in the rear heat/ac twice.  It moves a valve that closes the cold/hot ducts.  It is a cheap defective part/design.

SOURCE: heat works on driver side, passenger side blows cold air.

Did you check your coolant level or was it low and you added to it at some point? If so the system my need to be bleed or worst case the thermostat is going bad.

SOURCE: Why am I losing coolant and have no heat or air?

I would start by checking for coolant leaks. Common places would be in the waterpump or heater core. Heater cores can crack and leak. The heat from your vents inside the vehicle comes from air passing over the heater core, which is heated by the hot coolant flowing through the heater core. It acts in a similar fashion to your radiator, with the purpose of heat transfer. A coolant system that is low on coolant will not transfer heat through the heater core. Also, deposits from the coolant system can collect and plug the heater core which will restrict the flow and the amount of heat that is transfered to your heater. If you don't see coolant leaking externally, it may be leaking into the engine. this may be from a blown head gasket or warped head. If this is the case you may notice some whitish color smoke coming from the exhaust, as well as your coolant overflow/storage tank fluid level may increase.
The air conditioning is a seperate system and may be a seperate issue. The system contains liquid freon like a refrigerator. You can by recharge kits at your local autoparts store. If the kit works, you may find there is a leak in the system and you will loose cold air after some time. If thats the case, a certified dealer can fill the system with colored dye to help locate the leak. A bad compressor or evaporater can also cause a/c systems to fail.

Rear heating problem


Hi Jeff. I had the same problem, along with others on my 03 Denali. Along with not blowing hot air from the rear heating system, I had hot air blowing out of the passenger side and cold air out of the drivers' side vents. My battery would go low and had the same smell. I took my Denali in to the dealer and they found it was a bad Fan Control Module. They replace it and everything worked well after. It cost me $293 for parts and labor. Hope this helps.

I had heat blowing out now cold is blowing out of my 2000 maxima when the car is warm i turn on the heater cold air blows out


check you antifreeze level, if its low you may not get any heat. other then that it can be vapor locked (not great if it hasn't been emptied and refilled recently , could be a bad head gasket) or it can be the control in the dash...if so you may hear what sounds like an air leak(losing vacuum) or the air doors may be stuck towards the cold.......I hope your antifreeze is low, the other things are a pain to fix usually

My 98 cavalier heat is not working it blows cold air


the simplest fix is to check your coolant level, if the radiator is low enough your heat wont come on. when the car is warmed up, switch the engine off and check the level in the over flow bottle (located on the passager side) first squeeze the upper radiator hose with a shop towel to check for back pressure. if theres too much pressure wait for the engine to cool down longer. using the towel again remove the overflow cap, the bottle is pressurized so do so slowly to allow any stem to escape without burning you. if the coolant bottle is low, topoff with DEXCOOL (GM approved coolant)
once bottle is at the 'full hot' line replace cap and start car back up and switch heat on high/defrost. odds are decent this will fix the issue,
and it will only cost you a bottle of antifreeze :)

My heat doesnt work why ???


Hi i'm ryan, is it blowing cold air, or just won't come on at all? If its blowing cold air try checking the antifreeze level, low levels will cause it to blow cold air. If it is just not comming on at all, try checking the fuse for the heater.
