I have a 1992 Chevy caprice how do I flush the radiator


Remove hoses and use garden hose to run water through both tubes then reverse the flow and flush some more. If that won't clear the debris then replacement will be necessary

I get very low heat i have flushed system completely new radiator, thermostat, radiator cap, still no heat whats left?


Check to make sure vents are not clogged,below window by wipers check that and vents from dash going down,If not plugged then probably your heater core or heater blower motor may be shot or weak,you need a Haynes manual to check these if you are not familiar with where these are located at.Haynes manuals can be bought at most auto parts stores

Heater does not work at all


check radiator fluid is full the heater operates buy the radiator fluid flowing through the heater core. next your thermostat might be stuck in the open position thus your radiator fluid not heating up on cold days - no hot radiator fluid no heat. if fan is not coming on check fuse first if fuse is good check heater fan motor

Heater does not come on, Radiator fluid full. Fluid heats, heater does not work blower works heater does not get hot or even warm.


Probably air locked. check to see if one of the hoses leading into heater is hot. Other cause could be heater solenoid control valve faulty. Very unlikely that the heater matrix is blocked. Easiest way to bleed heater is to remove hose's when car is cold and GENTLY flush through with garden hose and push hoses back on when full of water, so you know you have a heater full of fluid. Hope this helps

Blower is only blowing vent air no heat, was working yesterday now is not.


radiator full? Thermistat stuck open. extremely cold and too much air flow on radiator.?Does it over heat at all? Back flush heater core and radiator and replace fluids, block off part of radiator in extreme cold areas. Check controls to be sure they are opening and closing correctly

My daughter has owned a 2005 Hyundai Accent since it was new. The car has NO heat. The blower works but it produces no heat and never has. There is fluid in the radiator.


couple possibilities - is the engine temp gauge in the normal range? if not, could be a thermostat issue. otherwise, have seen heater cores plug up on these. a heater core flush followed by a full cooling system flush will fix this.

Sounds like the thermostat is stuck open or fans running all the time (if electric). If water pump was shot, then engine would get hot, depending on the temperature where you are.
Electric fans, or belt powered? If electric, do fans run all the time? If so, replace the fan relay module, which are prone to failure in Chrysler products.

My 03 G35 is overheating and no heat in the cabin


Hello,
The thermostat was a good choice however you should go to a service station and get a complete cooling system flush.
your heater core and or radiator could be clogged.
