If temp guage is normal but no heat in cab your heater rad may be blocked or the control flaps not directing the hot air properly ,,, older cars had a heater tap that controlled the hot water flow into the heater radiator ,,,,

SOURCE: Heater Problums with the smell of burning Antifreeze.EXTRA Detail

Hi!

I really feel you could be losing a small amount of coolant from the heater matrix/core.

It appears we have an Air lock scenario due to this 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.
Also with your temp gauge reading 1/2 this is normal, possibly the core is blocked or as already suggested leaking, a Radiator sealing additive might help BUT it may be the cause of your cold/warm air?
TOO MUCH SEALER blocking the Matrix/Core?
I hope all this helps!

SOURCE: hi, the heater of my 2000 mitsi galant says 30 degrees but still cold. sometimes normal but sometimes 30 degrees is too cold and when i turn dial to 30.5 then too hot.

Is the engine getting up to temperature?
If so, then the issue is with the interior heater system.

Check or change the interior thermistor.
If this doesn't help, then replace the climate control computer/control box.

Cold air getting in at the drivers right foot


That is typical for most cars. The front lower (foot area) vents allow cold air to come in just before the heater kicks in (heat value opens). If this just started, may be wait for a warm / hot day and see it continues. Sometimes people forget as this typically happen only on colder days. I wouldn't worry about it. To make it stop, turn off the heater - A/C and wait for the car to warm up before turning on the heater. The car is warm once the engine temp gauge starts to move up / show warmer. In most typical cars it takes about 5 to 7 minutes running get the engine temp up to a point where the heater will blow warmer air. If you have more details / concerns - post them, the more you include (car make, model & year, when did the problem start, anything make it worse or better, influencing conditions e.g. rain, cold, hot, dry, etc the better).

Fan doesn't run while in idle and begins to over heat until I start driving agin then it cools back down to normal. Also the fan runs when engine is off and drains the battery.


The fan is only supposed to come on when there is excess heat .. in normal driving conditions it doesn't start. When you start your car in the morning the fan won't come on because the engine is cold.

With a hot engine - and it depends how hot the engine is - the fan will only kick in to prevent overheating. In heavy slow moving traffic or a traffic jam, the fan will kick in if needed.

The air flow through the radiator is usually sufficient -in normal driving conditions - to cool the engine.

When you park up and the car has a hot engine, the fan will kick in. This is perfectly normal. It is caused by a surge of hot coolant triggering the fan sensor. Perfectly normal.

The fan then should cut out after a while .. maybe 2-3 minutes at the most. If the fan runs continuously that suggests a fault in the temperature sensor switch.

Next time - wait by the car and see how long it takes for the fan to quit after you have parked up. It should stop of its own accord after a couple of minutes.

If the fan cuts off after a short while, and your battery is becoming drained, that's probably a battery or alternator fault.

Remember: when you start the car the fan won't kick in at idle speed because the engine is COLD, and there is no reason for the fan to start up ..
The fan WILL kick in for a couple of minutes after you have parked the vehicle and the engine is hot
