when the thermostat opened where did the coolant drain to? not understanding. did you put the thermostat in upside down blocking the cool will cause heater to blow cold air. if not, could be radiator itself.

2001 sebring blows hot air then after approx 20 mins blows cold air. Temp gauge inside car only goes up to about 1/4 mark.. any ideas? Had coolant system flushed.


Sounds like maybe a stuck thermostat. or a blocked heater core. Just cause the system was flushed dosent mean the heater core was cleaned out.

My 2000 tahoe is blowing cold air.


Check your coolant level and make sure its full, next i would look into replacing your thermostat, if your thermostat is stuck open your engine isnt able to reach operating temperature therefore heater output suffers, your coolant temp gauge should read around halfway when the engine is hot if its not look into replacing the thermostat, if your gauge is reading halfway check the cable going to your heater box when you adjust your temperature on your heater controls its possible that the cable broke or the blend door inside the heater box is stuck into the cold position allowing only cold air to come through the vents.

Heater blowing cold both sides


Does it blow warm air when you drive the car? If so its the water pump.

Could also be air in the coolant system

Also have the cylinder head pressure tested to rule out a hblown head gasket
Hope this helps
