No heat I had heat working on low only until my heater core went out. I replaced the heater core and still have no heat... The temp is normal no overheating, all areas seem to have flow with the hoses getting warm. I have no visible issues with my water pump.... Someone told me to check the blend door or a motor, it blows cold air too.....

Heater problems 2009 dodge nitro v6.


Possible, with rad cap off, let vehicle idle until coolant fan comes on then shut vehicle off for 30 minute cool down. Top up rad, install cap and drive and recheck heater operation and any overheating.

My mazda protege is having a heating problem. The temp guage will go up to the normal place as the engine warms up but then when I drive down the road the temp guage goes down to below cold and then my car...


I believe the mazda protege has a separate thermoswitch to activate the radiator's fan. Perhaps the fan keeps blowing until the temperature is too low. Try replacing the fan thermoswitch. Just take care to put in tis place a thermoswitch of the same temperature range.

2001 toyota celica no heat coming out


check your radiator level, as stupid as it sounds my 01 celica didn't have heat for 2 years. I was thinking it was the heat flap or something because when I drove the heat would start working and when I stopped it would stop working. Yesterday the car overheated so I checked the antifreeze and added about half a gallon. The car stopped overheating and as a side result the heater started working normally again. I did head slap and went on with life. Most vehicles have the heater core low to the floor but in the celica it is actually higher than the motor which means if fluid is at all low it won't work as it turns out.

Heater not heating on 2002 suburban fan blows just does not heat up any ideas culd it be a relay switch


No, Relays control the fan running. But you said it is running. Low coolant level, clogged heater core or sticking temperature door could be the problem. Is the engine running at normal temp? Open thermostat could cause low temperature.

1. That was the wrong thermostat.
2. You're low on coolant.

Chevy S10 overheated, now heat doesn't work, leaking coolant


When an engine is overheating and then the temp drops on the guage, it's usually a sign that the coolant is not touching the temp sensor. There's no coolant in the engine. Putting water in the overflow tank won't solve this. Take the radiator cap off after the engine cools and put coolant in the radiator. you might have to crank the engine and do this several times, as the engine can develop air pockets that won't allow the coolant to travel inside the engine. If you don't see any leaks, and it still uses coolant, you've probably got a blown head gasket. Check for water on the plugs, check cylinder compression. If it slowly uses coolant, try putting a large box of pepper in the radiator or some of that radiator seal copper flakes.

I have no heat


sounds like you may be low on antifreeze. ck and top off as nec. then run vehicle again if was low. if engine is running at normal temp (around 195-200 degrees) and not fluctuating, then a possible restricted heater core is suspect. you can flush these cores out fairly easily at firewall under hood. (do this before replacing core, pressure washer works well). if engine temp is not normal(reads low) or fluctuates, replace thermostat.

CAR HEATING VERY SLOW


i would suspect a couple things. if the engine is not running at correct temp. 195 degrees or so. replace thermostat and recheck. if engine is running at normal temp and is not overheating at all. would suggest flushing heater core to see if helps. if not then heater core replacement may be necessary these ford cars and trucks are notorious for poor cooling/heating systems due to the coolant used

No heat


Hey jacob, there are a number of things that can be wrong, let's start w/ easy cheap ones...1st, the easiest one is low coolant. If the level is low, it won't circulate thru the heater core, so no heat. 2nd thermostat stuck open. If this happens, the engine won't reach peak operating temp, and again, no heat. Pretty easy to check, is your car running cold (or low normal range?) If the temp gauge shows it's warming up in 5 - 10 minutes of driving, and is in normal range, then it probably isn't the thermostat. 3rd dash control that you use to select heat setting is either vacuum controlled (no vacuum @ switch possibly) or thermostatically controlled (faulty control), both of these could result in no flow of coolant to heater core, 4th a plugged up heater core (rust and corrosion) preventing coolant from flowing thru heater core. Let me know how u make out.
