How do I get hot air out of my heater vents


Make sure that the cooling system is completely full. Not just the reservoir but the system itself under the cap that is above the thermostat.. Check is full and then when the system is hot, burp the system to get rid of airlocks by squeezing the two radiator hoses, bottom one first and then the top one. Leave the system to cool and then check the level again.

93 chevy cavalier 3.1 over heating and heater blows cold, new water pump, thermostat, rad. cap, flushed the radiator, drilled a small hole in the edge of the thermostat, no water in oil and it doesnt...


had a similar problem myself. wound up being the radiator having a restricted flow in spite of being flushed and cleaned. also have you checked to make sure that your cooling fan is functioning properly? also your cooling system could possibly be airlocked, but i doubt it. i would be willing to bet that it is either your radiator not flowing properly. hope this helps out.

Drained radiator added prestone Radiator flush refilled and started overheating, drained radiator replaced thermostat and now I get no heat from heater,Radiator water is hot


disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

Heater blowes out cold air.....Put a new radiator in it.....


@ suggestions, change the thermostat and have the system power flushed, that will purge any silt in the heater matrix and any airlocks.

Heat blows cold air-no heat


first check to see if your heater hoses are getting warm you may just have a bad thermostat, if you've had any recent work done to the cooling system you may have an airlock which does not allow any coolant too flow through the heater core. do you smell antifeeze ?

Heater blowing cold air antifreez full 1999 lincoln navigator


is there a thermostat for the heater loop the same as for the radiator loop on your car cooling system.

1 some cars have thermostats to keep the water just round the engine when the engine is cold and then they open as the engine gets warm to get the water cooled it seems that the water is not coming to the heating circuit so there maybe a thermostat valve that is stuck in the closed position and needs replacement
2 alterativly the heat control lever mechanism is stuck in the cold position and needs to be freed up or the control valve replaced.
3if the system is electrically controlled with no manual levers for heat control then a fuse may have blown or some other electical problem in the heat control mechanism.

AIRLOCK IN COOLING SYSTEM


Hi Nizzy . Sorry to tell you but it sounds like your water pump impeller has fallen/broken off . Depending on your engine code it would be better off changing the cambelt and tensioner at the same time . Regards VW Audi tech

The engine seems to overheat and the internal heater blows cold


The problem is your coolant level has gone too low check and top up when engine is cold, you will see the marks on the expansion bottle, if prob persists there may be an airlock in the heater radiator. keep an eye on coolant level or you will have cylinder head problems.

'98 Century--Sporadic over-heating


Be sure to have heater (not defrost) on when refilling rad with coolant, and leave cap off until rad fan has come on & off 2 or 3 times, then replace cap. Airlocks are common on vehicles cooling systems, and will cause symptoms you are describing.
