It sounds like the fix is a simple one. Just change the thermostat. If you don't know how to do this go to an auto zone or similar auto parts store and they will assist you. good luck and please rate my answer.

2002 nissan altima heater problem


have 2002 altima,blower works no heat at idle and very little heat when accelerating.I changed carbon cabin filter,made sure little gear under dash to temp knob wasnt broken,flushed and bled system.Nothing worked so checked hoses to heater core and found inlet hose was hot,outlet hose was not.So investigated this problem and came to conclusion heater core was clogged.An easy way to check is to get car to normal running temp. put on heater and blowers at full.Go under dash on passenger side where counsel meets firewall,this is where heater core core inlet and outlet aluminum tubbing go through firewall,you will be able to feel both tubes one closest to you is outlet, so if this one is not hot and and other is your heater core is clogged.I detached both inlet and outlet hoses to heater core from water control valve.Then I blasted water with waterhose and nozzle set at jet,first through outlet hose to blow gunk out,then through inlet hose until water runs clear.Reatach hoses fill and bled system.heater works great nice and hot!

Why does my 2003 nissan blow cold air at idle


Check your coolant level. If it's low, you can get this symptom. If it's low, you must also determine why, as low coolant can severely damage your engine. If your coolant level is normal, then suspect a faulty thermostat, or faulty operation of the blend door or control, in your hvac system.

No heat ..help installed new heater switch, replaced water pump..replaced coolants, and thermostat......................what else could it be? Nissan 2003 GXE Sentra 1.8 L Engine/...


you could have an air pocket in the cooling system that has to be burped. With a cold engine, park uphill and leave the radiator cap loose. Fill radiator and coolant reservoir. Start engine with cap loose and run at 1500 rpm until temp gauge reads normal. Feel if top radiator return hose from engine to radiator is hot. If yes, coolant is flowing and thermostat is open. If cold, thermostat is not staying closed until engine is hot.

report results.

Nissan Altima no cool air blowing or hot air blowing


Hi!
It appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a system Bleed.
Park the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it again.
Check for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.

Heater bows cold when idling


Hya!
You need to bleed the cooling system.
To do this park on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle.
Have plenty of warm/hot water available, when engine reaches operating temp it may appear to boil over so keep away from coolant filler, top up with warm/hot water and wait as it may bubble over a few times before settling.
Replace cap and hopefully back to normal, Remember your Anti Freeze?
Good luck,

Heater blowing cold air


My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8s with 55,000 mi. blows cold air from the heater. Coolant not circulating in engine. Lower hose stays cool to touch. Both heater hoses cold. Changed thermostat - didn't fix it. Coolant not leaking or dirty. None in oil - no oil in radiator. Changed worn water pump belt - pump spins freely with no noise or resistance. Cooling fans come on after warm-up. Temperature gauge stays in normal range then jumps to hot and back again. Coolant good to 10 below - didn't freeze here yet. No other problems or repairs to car. Afraid to drive and make worse. Help!
