    regarding 85 Olds Delta 88 which blows only cold air .. we have replaced thermostat, the heater hoses are hot, have flushed radiator & coolant is good .. air blows strong, can adjust flow (low to high) but NO HOT AIR, no matter how long we let it run .. car does not overheat .. hopes this helps clarify what I'm dealing with .. my wife wants her car to be drivable year round and not just for summer :-)

If your coolant is full, and the car is not overheating, it's probably not your thermostat, but you might want to make sure. Look on the heater hoses running to the heater core - there should be a solenoid valve in the supply one (I think it's a vacum solenoid). That ****** is probably toast.... I believe it's meant to shut the coolant flow off when the aircon comes on. You can either whack it, replace it, or, if the aircon doesn't work anymore, remove it and put a coupling in there.... if it's not that, then your heater core is probably plugged.

Hope this helps :)

    Did you check for the valve I mentioned in the lines going to the heater core?



    The only other thing I can think of is the hot/cold temperature slider - If you don't have Automatic Temperature Control, I believe it's just connected through a cable to a door in the air supply. You should feel some resistance when you slide the control, and if you slide it from hot to cold quickly, you should be able to hear it slam the door closed (in other words, make sure the cable is operating the door)

85 88 royale. Last summer replaced 1 of the valve


She should still have some life left in her. The water pump isn't too hard to replace, really no special tools needed. When motors get around that mileage, they will use some oil and have some leaks. As the engine wears, blow by developes and will cause gaskets to leak. I would also check the PCV valve.

Heater is blowing cold air 1999 dodge stratus


A heater blowing cold air can be a few things. have all of these things check for proper operation to find the source of the problem.
1. Coolant level
2. Thermostat
3. Water Pump
4. Heater control valve
5. Make sure that the heater control doors are closing when you switch from hot to cold.
6.Last but not least if the climatic controls are electric it maybe at fault.
Good Luck
