If the hoses to and from the heater core are hot , and you say the heater core is hot , then the only answer is that the air duct that flows into or out of the heater core plenum ( housing ) is not opening.
Heater control on dash borad inoperative.
Not sure about 92 capri , some cars have a cable linkage , some work on vacume motors.
Try to find a haynes manual for your car , they will walk you through almost every step of anything you may ever want to do to your car.

You seem to know what you are doing , but I gotta ask ........the heater core you felt was up behind the dash inside the passenger compartment of the car right ?

Sounds like its the mixing door actuator motor. I believe its located behind your glove box, so if you remove your glove box you should be able to see it. Its a motor that actuates the mixing door to allow only hot, only cool, or a combination of the two into the vehicle. If you can get at it and the door seems to be able to move freely, you may want to check the heater control switch for voltage change using a multimeter. Im 99% sure it is one of these two culprits. Either the actuator motor or the switch. Good luck!

I'm getting heat to my heater core. It's just not blowing hot air. What's the problem?


Make sure both lines going to the heater core are hot and about the same temperature. If the heater core is ok ...I would look at the temperature blend door motor on the heater box. Good Luck

There is no heat in the car; the hot water is getting through the heater core but all we get is cold air into the car. Does it work on vacuum as in the Ford Fairmont? I want to be able to check all...


What year make and model is the vehicle?

Is your temperature adjustment on the dash even hooked up? Can you see the arm move up under the dash at the heater core to open the valve from moving the temperature adjustment?

Some years they used vacume others were a direct connect with a cable.

How are you sure you are getting hot water into the heater core?

That's weird.

Best regards
Ck

No heat in cab in ford ranger 2005 tied heater


check if both heater hoses going into firewall are hot.. if only one is hot then your heater core is stopped up..you can take both lines loose and take a water hose and back flush,,, force hose on one inlet of heater core for a minute and then the other.. keep going to you get a good flow...make sure heater valve is open, not just valve position take loose and confirm clear..last make sure your thermostat is not stuck open keeping engine from comming up to temperature

Morning, I have a 2006 dodge stratus sedan. When I turn the heat on only cold air blows when the car is sitting at a red light. But when I drive hot air blows. Is my heating element going out?


Water-cooled engines supply heat for the passenger compartment by circulating hot coolant through a radiator-like heater core. The passenger compartment fan forces air through this heater core and into the passenger area. The flow of coolant for this purpose can be controlled with a valve in the line that is adjusted when the heat control is moved or via a flap that blocks or opens the air path through the heater core to adjust temperature.
The effect you describe can be caused by several different sources:
- A slipping belt which turns the water pump. - A partially collapsed hose in the circuit for the heater, causing a reduction of water flow to the heater core. - A heater core internally blocked from deposits from the water component of the coolant. - A valve which is not being adjusted through its normal range by the dashboard control. - A flap suffering the same limitation as above.
Another effect our personal vehicles generally show with age is caused by abnormally low engine friction attributable to a particular additive we use that reduces engine friction so much that the thermostat that controls coolant/engine temperature is wide open but the engine doesn't heat enough to bring the coolant temperature into the normal operating range. We notice on two of three vehicles, that rolling on a long downgrade (engine not loaded) will cause the engine temperature to drop below its customary operating temperature.
If you have a dashboard temperature gauge, watch it to see if it rises into the middle of the range or not. If not, there may not be much you can do other than flush the cooling system, making sure that the heater control is set to its highest temperature to ensure that the heater core is in the loop while flushing.

Is it ok to drink the hot water from a carver cascade water heater?


Why would you want to do that? It should be ok. Its the same water as the cold, in a motor home or camper. just heated.

The heater is blowing cold but the engine temperature reads high


Hi
I would first check to see if both heater hoses are hot to the heater.
if 1 is hot and 1 is cold the heater control valve is closed or the heater core is plugged.
