CHECK THE HEATER CORE. MORE THAN LIKELY IT IS PLUGGED OR THE HEATER CONTROL VALVE IS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY. THE HEATER CONTROL VALVE CONTROLS THE WATER TO THE HEATER CORE. THUS NO FLOW, NO HEAT. GOOD LUCK.

How do I fix the heat


You have one of two problems. The heater core is plugged /
restricted or there is an inoperative internal blend door motor problem. Start the vehicle and let it reach operating temperature. Feel the hoses under the hood that go into the heater core. They should be close to the same temperature. If one is hot and the other luke warm/cold.... the heater core is plugged/restricted. If both hoses are near the same temperature, suspect a defective/non operational blend door motor that controls heat/cold/airflow attached to the heater box assembly

My 2002 buick lasabre heater blows cold.


Assuming the cooling system is full and there are no air pockets, are both heater hoses getting hot when the engine warms up ?
If so, it could be a blend door problem under the dash.

Heater doesn't get hot on 96 chevy truck. Blows good, just cold. Replaced thermostat, flushed radiator. Any ideas?


Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

Cold and no heat


This is a common complaint for the 4.3 v-6 by GM, what happens over time is air gets into the cooling system, usually a small coolant leak at the intake manifold gasket. Ait gets in the cooling system and starts electrolisis. From this the coolant starts to solidify. If I'm correct your heater core is plugged. Remove the radiator cap (engine cold only) and inspect the coolant. The proper color should be red. If the elctolisis is taking place the coolant will turn to rust and look like mudd. If you find mudd in the radiator, most likely the heater core is plugged. This is a very expensive repair. You'll need to remove the raditor & sent it out to be boiled out. Replace the heater core, thermostat and the coolant hoses. You'll also need to perform a "prestone" flush. You may need to flush the cooling system monthly until the system is clean.
