Start simple,look at your temperature settings are they at minimum? If so put them at maximum.if this doesn't work look at the heater in the engine compartment,it might be stark-closed there by preventing hot water from passing through the small radiator at dashboard.the blower depends on hot water passing through this radiator to produce hot air.

You cant just flush the core, youre going to have to flush the whole system. There is a kit but i recommend going to a lube shop. Another cause could be the radiator cap.

SOURCE: my heater stoped blowing hot air.antifreeze level

If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox and Pontiac Torrent,

Heater in Cab will not blow hot air


heater core might have setament or scale built up in it. needs to be flushed out. maybe thrmostat bad. i would try flushing heater core out first. use garden hose flush both ways, also before you flush it mix up alittle beaking soda and water and pour in heater core and let set for a while so it can loosen up the scale and setament then flush both ways until it runs clear.

96 Jeep Country-Heater blowing warm; NOT hot


unless you got visable signs of leakage its not heater core, but it could be pluged with sediment. take off both heater hoses and flush it both ways until it runs clear. you can also mix a little baking soda and water and pour in core and let set for a while and then flush.

No hot air FROM HEATER inside 2000 318IA


Hi There, If the fan blows only cold air, then you might have a restriction on the heater core. The heater core is like a small radiator inside your dash. The coolant flow through it can be restricted by corrosion. The lack of flow of coolant through the heater core will result in a lack of warm air inside the car. Flushing out the heater core may help. If not, you will have to replace it. I would say though, 80% of the time the cause is just restriction. Get the heater core flushed and I am sure you will get your heat back. MIke
