    My heater has been blocked and I flushed. Recently had head gasket repaired. I replaced radiator and battery now the car won't start . What am I missing?

  • Anonymous Feb 01, 2009

    i blame the good old dexcool for cloging the heater core and eating up intake and head gaskets i take it out and i use the green but if your heater core is pluged and back flushing does not fix it then this is a fix seeing as how you need to replace the heater core any how because it is pluged you have nothing to loose if you put a hole in it. with this fix i have done 4 of them with no problem remove the 2 heater hoses from the engine blow out the watter now use battery acid (avable at auto parts stores) pour it into the heater till it is full let it set for 2-3 minites and blow it out with compressed air do it again a 2nd time but this time revures the flow then flush it out with lots of water use rubber gloves and goggles be carefull not to get on the car if you shound get some on the car or your self flush with lotts of water i have also used meraitc acid but it is way to powerful but it did the job with no problems

Your '99 Blazer does not have a water valve. Just a temp. blend door. In other words, hot water should be flowing through the core at all times. Like the other techs said, make sure you are getting the whole system full of coolant. You might even try disconnecting one hose, and pouring water into the heater core itself. On most of these year models, if you listen, you can hear the rush of water through the core when you lightly rev the eng. I have replaced 3 heater cores just last year on '96-'99 Blazers. They clog easily. YOu can blow or flow water through them, but if they don't flow freely, I mean without any restriction whatsoever, they will not get as hot as you want. The thing is tiny!

Here's an easy test: Run engine until temp gauge reaches normal: around 180-200 degrees. Reach back to the firewall and grab both heater core hoses. Are they both about the same temp. and HOT? THey should be. If one is much warmer than the other. You are clogged enough to suffer in the winter. And from what you said: "Brrrrrr" You are getting poor performance out of your heater.

BE sure to check that the blend door is working. Is it cool when you set temp to cool? Blazers go through way more heater cores than they do blend doors, so I'm betting your core is either empty, or clogged. TaterTodd

Could be the thermostat, or the blend door actuator. If it's not low anti-freeze. It does blow air, correct? If not, check the heater fuse or the blower resistor. Take care and best wishes to ya.

Make sure you are full of antifreeze to the top of the radiator .. also your water valve is working properly isnt it ? sometimes they are outside firewall and are vacuum operated. lets water go inside the core.

What would be leaking under my radiator on the drivers side?


It sounds like your thermostat is stuck closed. Your thermostat also acts as a heater valve to let hot coolant go to your heater core to blow hot air if your thermstat is stuck close it prevents your coolant to run through your radiator to cool down and to blow hot air from your heater core. A way to check to see if your thermostat is working while its at operating temp feel the bottom and top radiator hose if your lower hose is cold and top is hot your thermo is stuck closed but be careful hoses might be very hot

How can I fix this my van only blows out cold air?


Check both hoses to heater core and see if they are both hot. If not, try back-flushing heater core. If the are both hot, you may have an air"blend" door not working due to bad actuator or vacuum leak. This is the door which changes hot the air flows into the heater core or not.

No heat and both the radiator and thermostat are new.


There are a couple of possibilities....

1. The heater core has been bypassed. If the core was leaking someone may have looped the heater hose back on itself. Check to ensure that the supply and return heater hoses are in place and properly routed to the firewall.

2. The heater core may be clogged. Age does a lot as does old coolant to clog up a heater core. To check the core disconnect the heater hoses at the block. Blow through one hose and see if you can get coolant/air to pass through the core. You can raise one hose higher than the other and pour water through or use low-pressure air as well. If the core is clogged, it may be possible to unclog it using a diluted drain cleaner. Pour the diluted cleaner into both hoses and let sit for a time, then flush with clear water. This may take several attempts. If it works it will save much time and expense. The unfortunate downside is that there is also the possibility of generating a core leak this way. But considering that if you hadn't tried you would have to replace the core anyway, you have nothing really to lose.

3. The blend door in the heater control box may be stuck and not letting air pass thru the core to heat the cabin. This one is hardder to verify.

98 ply breeze heater blows cold air, replcd water pump, radiator, thermostat, filled w/coolant, no leaks inside car, both h/c hoses are warm, bled coolant system, fans work. Would the heater core be...


Yep! Take the heater hoses loose from the engine(one at water pupm\\mp and other one at thermostat housing area usually). Then take your water hose at your house,with a common old pistol grip nozzle,and spray water back thru the heater hose you took off the water pump side and that will force it back thru the heater core and out the hose you took off the thermostat side.
If you want to see the junk that flies out of it,tie a white rag or old tee shirt onto the end of the hose.You'll be amazed what flies out of there.Reconnect your heater hoses and see how it does.
I always fill the hose full of water so when I reconnect them,they don't have any airlock problem. don-ohio (:^)

Can you take off the 2 lines going into heaTER CORE AND BLOW THEM OUT WITH A AIR LINE WILL THIS WORK?


Yes you can blow through a blocked heater with air and it should work,dont blow too hard in case the core is weak and starts leaking,and make sure that you try and seal the end where your blowing for the air to not leak back at you so you have enough pressure,should work fine
