Question about 2004 Mazda Tribute
The heater will work when first turned on but then turns cold. If you shut off the heater for a bit and then turn it back on, it works for a very short time. We blew out the lines and removed a bunch of gunk but that did not solve the problem. The heater does not consistently stay warm.
Sound like radiator and heater core plugged with rust and debris.need have radiator shop flush out the system or buy a flush kit at any auto parts stores.

Check your coolant. If the coolant is low, you won't get heat in the cabin. Make sure that the fan is turning on as well. Check coolant sensors also. Good luck!

this problem is caused by a defectivce air temperature control blend door actuator motor, to replace this part requires the entire dash assembly be removed.

Testimonial: "Thanks alot! I way afraid it was something that was going to require the entire dash being removed!!! Have a great day!"
It sounds to me like you have a plugged heater core, or one that is beginning to plug. With the engine running, carefully feel the two hoses that lead from the engine into the heater core in the firewall. If one of those hoses is colder than the other one then you heater core needs to be replaced. This involves removing a bunch of stuff under the dash. Sometimes it's pretty easy and sometimes not. Start by removing the glove box and you should be able to see the plastic housing for the heater core.
