Question about 1985 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

1985 toyota tercel has no heat, blows.

My tercel, (a recent buy) runs well, but when i turn on the heat full blast, the fan runs but only spits out cold air. it doesn't seem to matter how long i run it, the air only gets up to chilly instead of impossibly cold. it been suggested that i should backflush the heater core and that i can do it with a garden hose but i was just wondering if there's anymore information you can give me. do i just hold the garden hose onto the lead or try to attach it somehow? afterward do i just hook it back up or is there more maintenence i need to do before driving it?
any help is greatly appreciated.

    the temp guage goes up and stays pretty much in the middle. the cars not overheating or running cold and the guage isworking fine. i'm also going to check the knob in the dash. itjust occurred to me that it might be stuck in the cold position.

Before you flush the heater core. I would check your thermostat first. Does your temp gadge goes up or stay the same while driving? if it does it's your thermostat.

Anytime the A/C is on, one or both radiator fans will be automatically turned on, and run as long as A/C is used.
Check a wiring diagram, you might be able to troubleshoot it. Relay terminals are a good place to check for power or loss thereof.

My 2002 saturn sl1 is weakly blowing luke warm air out when i have my heat at its hottest setting and my fan at full blast.


the best way to find out if the problem is in the cabin or under the hood is to touch the heater hoses when the motor is at operating temperature. turn on the heat full blast and feel the hoses; if they are both almost too hot to touch then the problem is with your blend door or its control mechanism. if one is noticeably cooler than the other then you,ve got a clogged heater core. if they are both cool enough to touch then your motor is running too cool

The fan is stuck blowing on high, the knob turns etc... but the fan and condenser run full blast


Check the connection at the heater blower motor resistor.Wiggle or pull connector off and look for a melted pigtail these get very hot and usally are the cause of fan motor problems.Its located on passenger side of heat duct mounted with 2 screws.
