It even says in manual not till 120k!!!!!Car is great but niggly issues like this let down what I thought was a bullet proof car when i bought it. Stick to Toyota next time. They go on forever

This is more than likely a problem with your thermostat in the cooling system .heres a few things to check to be sure make certain your blower fan is on high and temp setting is in the hottest setting check to see if   air is coming from your heater ducts  also be sure to thoroughly let the engine warm up 10 to 20 minutes  before checking. if the air is blowing but  luke warm still your thermostat is stuck in the open position  and will cause the engine to run to cold and performance will also suffer as will your heat will not be sufficient  to heat the passenger compartment  this repair should cost no more than $150 max to replace buy a repair shop    this is a  common problem in older cars and this is generally   a quick  repair to be made  for almost any repair facility  should take under 45 minutes to complete once repair is started

I just had a new thermostat put in my 2005 pilot because only cold air seemed to be blowing - lukewarm at best. They also fluched and put in new anti freeze. It seems better but not great. Now my center...


Had the same problem on a 2006 pilot LX. Hot from rear heater because it comes from a separate heater core. Front heat low because ball valve faulty that controls coolant flow to heater core. The lever on the valve would move freely but the connection to the shaft of the ball valve was stripped. Ball valve may be located on the firewall under the hood. Ball valve very poor design.

I HAVE A 95 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE AND ALL I GET IS LUKEWARM AIR WE HAVE FLUSHED THE SYSTEM CHANGED THE THERMOSTAT, RADITOR CAP AND HOSE, WATER PUMP NO CANGE WHAT ELSE CAN I do?


If your gauge is showing correct operating temperature and you are getting no heat from the heater, check (just feel them) the hoses leading from under the hood through the firewall that service the heater. One should be uncomfortably hot, the other only warm. If they are pretty close to equal or even cool, you have an obstruction in the heater hoses. Rubber hoses in the cooling/heating system are made up of laminated layers and if aged enough, the inner lining can separate and collapse blocking the flow of water either to or from the heater core. Sometimes, if bad enough, squeezing the hoses by hand can even locate the failed section; it will be noticeably weaker than the rest.

2001 Audi S4 Heater doesn't work


Thermostat has failed (stuck open) and needs replacement. It's a big job (5-6 hours charged labor for a shop), and requires the front of the car to be removed. Here's a pic of my car (B5 A4) a few weeks ago when I changed mine:

There's no way around it either - removing the front of the car is the only way to access it.

Air only gets cool and the heat only gets warm


Found this on another website from someone else with the same problem. Hope this helps.

"This is the second year for lukewarm air coming from heater. Last year I changed t-stat and add new coolant ,also new radiator cap. It helped a little but not enough. Took it to a mech. and had it flushed ,that seemed to help alot but not as hot as it used to be."

Heater does not work


Check blend door motor for proper operation (vacuum operated) if necessary, detach arm from heater box and move by hand. If you have heat then, change motor! You are reaching operating temp for engine, right? If not, thermostat is stuck open... Change.

Audi a6 heaters not given out hot air


the heater cores in these cars get clogged up very commonly. pull the heater hoses off of the heater core in the engine compartment, and use a regular garden hose to backflush the heatercore. spray in one way, then the other, untill clear water is coming out. then refill your coolant reservoir and see if that helps.
