Check for head gasket replacement. Headgasket may be bad.

Heater core may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Grand vitara radiator over heating

make sure thermostat is in the right direction. put a new gasket. try a cleaner and fill radiator or have it rodded out along with maybe your heater core. drain and refill. put fresh oil in it now.

SOURCE: heater blower makes noise on high speed

it is either a bad switch or window motor. finding a wiring diagram and shooting power to the correct wire will identify whether the switch or motor is faulty.

My van started overheating after a below freezing night. When I started it, the belt was squealing. After a short time the temp was up and the high temp light came on. After I shut it off, the coolant...


Your anti freeze was weak and froze.the belts squealing was due from the pump was froze (ice). Put your car in your garage and use a heat gun around the engine block to warm the metal so internal temperature will rise and melt the ice.once defrosted star the car and check coolant level.use hydromiter to check your anti freeze. Should be 30 to 40 below zero.

2008 RAV4 defroster doesn't clear windows at temps below freezing


front or rear defrost?
what windows, there are many, front windshield?????
front:
dont use RECIRC mode. use fresh air, only
and make sure the dampers are in fact sending hot air to the windshield. if the dampers are not working it needs service
or a simpled blown fuses in the fuse box.
also, the car can have water engress. are the any damp spots
on the carperts. anywhere.?
are you using the A/C defrost mode, does it work.
do you know how to tell, its easy, check A/C mode.
A/c is also a dehydration system for the whole cab, it even ejects
water to the ground as you drive.

Heater will not blow hot air


Assuming the radiator is full of coolant, and the engine is reaching normal temp of 190 degrees, you could have a blocked heater core or the temp control valve may not be working on the heater hose.
I would check to see if both heater hoses are getting hot.

My cooling fan wont turn off when my car warm up fully


Your cooling fans may never turn off until the engine temp cools down enough. Also if your A/C switch (if equiped) is on the fan should stay on. The defrost position also turns the A/C on as well (helps to defrost windows faster) so that would turn the fan on.

Check the heater valve is fully open when in the hot position , this valve or tap often get stuck half open. if all is ok there flush the heater radiator as they can silt up.

I have a 2004 Impala. My heater and defrost blows cold air. It takes forever to start getting warm - I have to drive about 30 minutes before it starts to get warm if it's going to. If I turn the blower...


Staqr by making sure the coolant level is full in the radiator. When the engine is cold remove the radiator cap. If you can't see coolant in the radiator you'll need to add some. once it is full replace the cap and start the engine. Do you have heat now?

If not is the check engine light on?

Do you have a temperature gauge? is it reading lower than normal? The needle should be around the middle mark. If its near the quarter mark than you could have a thermostat stuck open which would cause the check engine light to come on and store a code for coolant temp below operating temperature. I think its code P0128.

Hot air coming through defrost vent when the defrost is not on.


I have seen this on GM vehicles before. If you take the temp selector and change it to the middle or to cool it will not let warm air go through the defrost vent. The hot air coming out of the defrost vent is because the heater core has warm coolant going through it- and the user generally has warm selected on the temperature setting.
