I would check the oil for coolant then more than likely be your heater core

Where is my heater control valve located on my chevy 1500 WT 4.3 2 wheel drive pick up Im not getting any heat unless riding down road when I stop it blows cool untill I start driving again


Chevy vehicles do not heater control valves in the water lines any more...they always rust out and malfunction. What you are probably experiencing is a bad vacuum ball or a vacuum tubing leak in the heater box area under the dash. The control lead that you use to adjust the heater (temp and direction), is vacuum controlled from engine vacuum. Engine vacuum varies under load and at idle, so the manufacturer put vacuum balls under the dash to store vacuum for the controls. When you adjust the heat or direction, vacuum from the balls is diverted to vacuum motors that position the blend doors to pass air thru the heater core or A/C evaporator. Other motors direct their door(s) to position the air to the floor, mid-vents, or to the defroster. A leak in the tubing, ball, or motor can cause the door(s) to retract to default if vacuum drops down as it does at idle. Have the heater box and vacuum system to it checked out.

When car slows down heat cools down


when you have that problem , almost all the time is the heater core clogged , you can have the engine running until reach normal temperature and touch both heater hoses at the fire wall, if one is hot and the other is not them the problen is your heater core.

No heat blowing cold air.


Do you smell coolant inside of the vehicle. If so then chances are your heater core is going.

No heat,engine temp.is normal


the valve that allows the hot water into the heater core is not opening. most likely electronic issue. also check all vacuum and electric lines.

No Heat in 99 Taurus


Just finished fixing my daughters 1999 taurus heat. It would blow warm only when running down the road. At idle it blew cold. I started with replacing thermostat, and water pump because they are the easier fix. Still did not help. Then I replaced the heater core. A daunting job but not that hard to move the dash slighly out of the way to replace. There is a good write up at tarusclub.com. After that, heat was better but at idle, it would still blow cool sometimes. Researched and found answer. Park car on the steepest hill you can find with front of car up. Start car and take off reservoir cap. Let car warm up and keep rpms about 1500. After a while the fluid will come running out of the car and all over the place but it will bring air bubbles with it. Reduce rpm, add more fluid and repeat about 3 times. It will make a mess but after that, the heater works perfectly. We get heat long before the temp gage indicates any and it never blows cold unless you lower the temp.

Manual heating system with automatic trans. 7.3 L Diesel, 45k miles


it may be your thermostat, the gauge on the dash is a dummy gauge, there is only three positions that it sees, dead cold, operating temp, and hot, so even though the needle looks fine it just means it s closer to operating temp then it is to cold,
