Question about 2004 Mazda MPV
I HAVE A 1996 MAZDA BONGO 2.5 DIESEL. THE TEMPERATURE GAUGE DOES NOT WORK, THE HEATER ONLY BLOWS LUKE WARM AIR AND WHEN I FUEL THE VAN UP, THE FUEL GAUGE MOVES UP TO HALF WAY AND THEN GOES UP AND DOWN REGARDLESS WHATS IN THE TANK. THE FUEL WARNING LIGH DOES NOT COME ON EITHER . IT WOULD BE VERY APPRECIATED IF YOU COULD HELP ME OUT .THANKS SO MUCH.
Thanks for a reply. Finally it appeared that the problem lays in the alternator, not in the heater. Nevertheless, as I mentioned before heater was not working and that deluded me somehow. After replacing an alternator everything came back to normal. By the way, I replaced both belts (alternator and wedge belt).

make sure your coolant fluid level is good, than check the valve that controls the amount of coolant that flows to the heat exchanger inside your dashboard, make sure it is wide open. (find it by having someone inside the car move the heat control from hot to cold and back while you are under the hood looking for the valve. Sometimes the cable that goes from the dashboard heat/temp control to the coolant valve comes off.

no im a mechanic it sounds like that you have an air lock in the cooling system .i am familiar with ford freda and bongo and the design where the engine is is a bit far from the radiator ,so the problem with air locks magnifies.really the solution is just drain the water and refill it slowly while you are pressing and releasing,just repeat the action on the top radiator hose to get rid of any air trapping within the system,it's as simple as that really.you want it to have just water and no air as this will cause a blockage.
