SOURCE: Heater not heating my Jeep

the problem is the air temperture control door (known as a blend door) is stuck or the door's actuator is not working. your engine temp is correct and not the problem.

SOURCE: how to replace a jeep tj fuel tank?

I would be really careful with doing this repair as this is very dangerous. You need to relieve the fuel pressure by pulling the fuel pump fuse and starting the truck. Drain the tank with a siphon pump. Remove any exhaust or other parts that are in the way, loosen the straps and support the tank with a floor jack and a block of wood. There are several hoses, and a few wire connectors to disconnect and you may want to replace those hoses while you're down there. Once you put the new tank in, reconnect the electrical and hoses, raise the tank and strap it back up. Put anything else back together you took off the truck.
Personally, I would take this in to get fixed as this is dangerous work (I did mention that). I you do this anyway, use your head and buy a proper container to hold the gas in , as well as jackstands and a class "B" fire extinguisher. Disconnect the battery and don't smoke or use a drop light under the car, and I will not accept responsibility for this.

SOURCE: The heat in my 1992 Jeep Wangler is not working.

Hi!
It appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a system Bleed.
Park the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it again.
Check for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.
If persistent boil ups/over attention must made in the cylinder head
or gasket area, or possibly water pump?

SOURCE: 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lerado, low coolant alarm

This same thing happened to mine. It only happened in really cold weather though. I added a few inches more of coolant into the overflow. It fixed the problem. I also discovered if that is not the problem, the sensor in the overflow can go out and a replacement is about 20 bucks.

My yukon is running hot but there are no holes in the radiator and there is a leak on the passenger side?


Hi, maybe you have a faulty water pump or gasket, it's better that a mechanic check it as soon it's possible.

My 1996 honda accord doesnt heat up like it suppose to..unless its juss parked without any movement.. I drive it 2 miles away and it still doesnt heat up im concerned !! Any help ????


Thermostat stuck open?
Faulty temp sensor or gauge?
If heat comes out of the heater, engine thermostat is ok. That will isolate it to probably the temp sensor in the temp indication system (sensor & gauge).
The cooling system should be full. Temp sensors cannot read the engine temperature of steam or empty cooling galleries.

Temp gauge and computer says car is hot but water in tank is cool


Does your heater blow out hot air? If you get plenty of heat even at idle (after the engine is warm) then you probably have a temperature sensor issue. If you don't get plenty of heat you either have low coolant or a thermostat issue. Check the level of your coolant when the engine is cold, it should be at the cold fill level that is marked on the resovoir. If it at the correct level, check for flow in the rad if it has a cap. DON'T OPEN IT WHEN THE ENGINE IS HOT!!!! Open if before you start the engine. Watch for the coolant moving through the rad, also (with the cap on and engine hot) both rad hoses, one should be a little cooler than the other. If they are both cool you have restriction in the cooling system. Hopes this helps, I am a former Ford master technician. If you need more help put a new question in Help me, Billy along with an email and I'll contact you with help.

Heater does not work


If you are getting air to the cabin, then you probably have a problem with the air dam that divides the air from the heater coil to the cabin. Most are vacuum operated and can fail on vaccum

No heat


Hi James, If we're talking about the radiator for cooling the engine, check the thermostat and water pump. If we're talking about the cabin climate control, check the valve operation of the cabin temperature control. Regards John

My 1996 Toyota Camry cooling fans dont come on when the car reaches its normal tempeture to activate the car's cooling fans. The keeps running hot and over heating, also when I turn the heat on it only...


You can start with checking the fuse that is usually located in the engine compartment fuse panel...in there there may be a cooling fan relay that will need to be checked also...if these components check out..then sometimes the sensor on the engine for the cooling fan circuit may have become defective....usually it is located somewhere on the housing where the top radiator hose goes...you may have 2 different ones as the other is used for the temperature gauge

I do not have any heat in my blazer, the fan blows but no heat


Start with the engine hot and the temperature selector in the cabin set to max heat and the blower on. Raise the hood and locate the hoses going into the heater core (through the firewall). Check if both hoses are hot to the touch. If not, locate the control valve in one of the heater hoses and feel if it is hot on one side of the valve.

Have an assistant move the temperature selector inside the cabin. Watch the valve in the heater hose to see if it moves. If not, look for the problem with the mechanism. If it does, replace the thermostat.
