Heat in the car


Have someone hold the heater hoses at the Firewall where both travel through the heater core. When the heat is turned on and the engine has run to normal running temperature both the hoses should be equally hot.

If one side is hot and one is not, the water flow valve is not opening. If both hoses are hot, then the inside ductwork is not channeling the airflow properly.

If both hoses are only warm, not hot, then the Thermostat is stuck open and needs to be replaced. Then retest the heater hoses for warmth.

What if you leave the heater hose outlet off your car will your car run hot


Won't run hot

The heater hose is to put hot coolant
into the heater core for cabin heat, just won't be
hot inside

You have to put the two hoses together if you
don't want to have water thru the heater core,
then they don't do anything but circulate coolant
but not inside the car

2002 nissan altima heater problem


have 2002 altima,blower works no heat at idle and very little heat when accelerating.I changed carbon cabin filter,made sure little gear under dash to temp knob wasnt broken,flushed and bled system.Nothing worked so checked hoses to heater core and found inlet hose was hot,outlet hose was not.So investigated this problem and came to conclusion heater core was clogged.An easy way to check is to get car to normal running temp. put on heater and blowers at full.Go under dash on passenger side where counsel meets firewall,this is where heater core core inlet and outlet aluminum tubbing go through firewall,you will be able to feel both tubes one closest to you is outlet, so if this one is not hot and and other is your heater core is clogged.I detached both inlet and outlet hoses to heater core from water control valve.Then I blasted water with waterhose and nozzle set at jet,first through outlet hose to blow gunk out,then through inlet hose until water runs clear.Reatach hoses fill and bled system.heater works great nice and hot!

Drained radiator added prestone Radiator flush refilled and started overheating, drained radiator replaced thermostat and now I get no heat from heater,Radiator water is hot


disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

No heat


i`m guessing the blower motor is working.check coolant level then run car until hot,that is the upper rad hose is hot to the touch.then touch the heater hoses they should feel the same in temp from one to the other.if not then the heater core is plugged and will have to be flushed.you can clamp the hoses with something so you won`t loose very much coolant.then remove the hoses and using a garden hose run water one way then the other way.if this doesn`t work you can try and drain the heater core and fill it with clr and let it sit for a while(about 30 to 45 minutes)then flush the heater out with water.then hook up the heater hoses and run until hot,if it works then you will have heat and unplugged the heater.if both hoses are the same temp then replace the thermostat.

Heater does not work have flushed engine changed thermostat and heat flapper valve


the problem maybe heater core stopped-up. need to see if coolant is flowing thru heater core.and check to see if heater hoses are getting hot near heater core . if take off heater hoses to core with water hose run water thru one side of the hoses to see if water flows thru the other hose.

No heat on 2008 sienna, replace t-stat. one rad hose and one heater hose hot. other rad hose & heater hose cool


If your top rad. hose is cool and the engine is smoking hot, it probably is a blown head gasket. What does you temp gauge read ?

The heat in my 1994 dodge caravan does not work. The van will heat up and then I try the heater sometimes it starts to then it fades to coolness.


Sounds like a partial plug in a heater hose or the heater core itself. There's not a full flow of water and it cools off faster than its replenished.The hot water valve may not be opening all the way either. Backflush the heater core,run water from a hose the opposite way it normally flows,Thru the core to clear it. Check hoses the same way. Also chech them for soft spots the hose may be collapsing internally.If the engine is not overheating the water pump is probably ok . if it is running a little too hot the thermostat may not be opening all the way either/ Replacing it could help too.
