Sounds like your thermostat is not working (stuck closed). if the hose on top is soft after several minutes of engine running this is definitely the problem. good luck

I have no heat in my 2000 ford expedition. The blower motor works but only blows cold air. As far as i can tell the heater core hasnt been by-passed.


Time to either flush or replace the heater core as it may be plugged with rust build-up. I'm assuming the engine is running at normal operating temperature, if not then the thermostat may need replaced.

2006 grand prix heater only blows cold air. both heater hoses are hot blower motor works fine.


Sounds like the temperature blend door actuator may be bad or the vacuum hose to it is disconnected.

Poor Heater System Performance CAUTION
Check all fluid levels and adjust as needed, before operating vehicle for extended periods at idle.
  1. Start the engine.
  2. Idle the engine until the thermostat opens (upper radiator hose will be hot) Is the engine at normal operating temperature (approx. 200° F)? If yes, go to the next step. If no, go to step 16.
  3. Set the mode selector to FLOOR mode.
  4. Set the heater control selector to the warmest temperature setting.
  5. Set the blower speed the lowest setting.
  6. Carefully feel the inlet and outlet heater hoses at the heater core. Is the inlet heater hose significantly hotter than the outlet heater hose? If yes, go to step 14. If no, go to the next step.
  7. Set the mode selector to PANEL mode.
  8. Select the maximum blower speed.
  9. Select the warmest temperature setting.
  10. Place a thermometer into the center I/P PANEL air outlet and affix a second thermometer to the heater core outlet heater hose.
  11. Record the temperature at the center I/P PANEL air outlet and at the heater core outlet heater hose. Are the two temperature readings about equal? If yes, go to the next step. If no, go to step 13.
  12. Inspect and repair the cowl, cowl area, recirculation door, and the HVAC evaporator/heater core case for cold air leaks. Repair any problems found, go to step 17.
  13. Inspect the temperature door operation. Repair any problems found, go to step 17.
  14. Turn OFF the engine. Back-flush the heater core. Start the engine. Select the FLOOR mode and the lowest blower speed. Select the warmest temperature setting. Feel the temperature of the inlet and outlet heater hoses at the heater core. Is the inlet heater hose feel significantly hotter than the outlet heater hose? If yes, go to the next step. If no, go to step 17.
  15. Replace the heater core. When the repair is completed, go to step 17.
  16. Check for low engine temperature problems, Repair or replace as needed, go to step 17.
  17. Operate the system in order to verify the repair. If the system operates properly, the repair is complete. If the heater still does not work properly, repeat the entire procedure.

1998 Expedition: 2000 Ford Expedition I smell antifreeze with heate...


If you smell antifreeze it may be 3 possibilities: 1. you may have a leaking hose/hose connector , or water pump. 2. your heater core is bad and needs replaced. Unless you know what you are doing I would highly suggest taking to dealer for heater core replacement. The dash and steering colum has to be removed to get to the heater core. This is not an easy job believe me (about-900-1200 job). If you have your heater core replaced then also replace the climate control door. This is good preventative maintenance and also a a dollar saver. I would have a pressure check run on your radiator as a first thought. All you may have is a bad hose and that can easily be replaced.

How do you flush out a heater core in a 2002 ford expedition


No reason to. It is normally flushed out all the time by normal use. Sediment builds up in the engine and radiator, not heater. If the heater not getting hot enough, it is most likely the engine thermostat or the heater control valve. When you start a cold engine, the main radiator hose to the thermostat should stay cold for about 5 minutes, until the engine is totally up to temperature. Only then should the thermostat open and allow that hose to instantly get hot. If it slowly gets warm, then it is stuck open and needs replacement.

Heater not blowing hot but its blowing


Check the heater hoses for being hot when the engine is at normal operating temperature. If both are hot, then the core is good. If the blower motor runs, then look for a diverter valve in the air duct system that is not in the right position--possible problems are kinked or split vacuum hose to the valve. Check the engine area for a bad hose from the intake manifold going to the temperature control panel. Check the passenger side under the dash for the heater components.

My heat blows hot for about 5secs then grt cold again whats that


If there is no sign of coolant loss (air pocket in heater core),then check for plugged heater core. Both hoses should be very close to same temp with engine at operating temperature with heater fan on high setting.If the return hose is alot colder, then coolant flow is restricted.

2001 tahoe front heater not working, rear heater blows warm air


Notorious for plugged heater cores. Also updated plastic restriction couplers mounted at heater core available from dealer. Try back flushing heater core. Run engine till its at operating temperature then carefully hold the inlet and outlet hose breifly with heater fan on high if hoses are nearly the same temp then flow is good , if not then core is plugged.

HI....
The heater on your Vehicle it can be a few problems.
I will mention the Importants.

First. Check the temperature, The temperature has to be At least 140 Farenheit.
Second. With a Temperature gace check the temperature of the 2 small hoses going to the Heater core. If the Temperature is almost the same on each of the small hoses, and Close to the temperature of the engine. The circulation is good.
But if only One of the hoses are Hot and the Other no. Is because is there a restriction in the Heater core, and will be nesesary to clean or replace.

Third.. Check the Blend door actuator motor. ( Is the actuator to move from cool to hot air )
Is located at center of the Instrument panel. at lower of the Hvac housing.
Is there behind the Center console.

Ok... Check the step I giving and letme know.
Thank you for use fixya...
