Your heater core has corroded through. You need a new heater core. You may be able to get by temporarily, with bypassing the heater core hoses, located in the engine compartment. These hoses carry coolant heated from the engine, to the heater core. You remove the hoses from the core, and put a pipe in the middle, connecting the two hoses together using hose clamps.

Should there be a cool morning, or if you need the defroster, you won't have warm air. Just a temporary fix.

The air only comes out of the circle vents on dash, not the defroster vents or floor vents. I have a 2005 Pontiac G6 base model and I am not sure how to fix this issue


In side you dash is a electronically controlled actuator call a mode actuator , it controls which vents the air comes out of ! They go bad, plastic gears in side of it wear out, a lot of times you'll hear a clicking sound in the dash. They are not to tough to fix ,you need to take Instrument Panel Insulator Panel off - Left Side under dash . Some times stuff drops down in an binds up the door inside .Have a little child , they like putting stuff in the vents ,pencil's an the like.

Water coming through air vents


clean out the drain under the windscreen and ensure that the drain hoses down inside the mudguards are not blocked . ON the dash controls close the vent to recirculate the cab air and not allow fresh air into the cab.

I have coolant steam inside my car coming from my heater - 98 chevy blazer


Hello
Your going to need a heater core,this is located in the heater fan box under the dashboard.
Possibly may be found mounted to the firewall under the hood.

Let it cool down before attempting any repairs.Another possibility is a broken hose at the heater core.

1997 VW Jetta 5-speed, 2.0 liter Loosing coolant/water. Some due to evaporation and heat here in Texas during summer, but. . . much more and more rapidly than that would explain. No apparent leak...


You should not loose coolant under any temprature conditions unless you have a leak somewhere. using strait water is not recomended , the engines normal operating temp will be above the boiling point of water. you need antifreeze to raise that boil temp higher. Strait water will boil , turn to steam , and vent out the overflow container , thus slowly disapearing. Drain your system enough to add the correct amount of coolant and see what happens. It's possible that you might be loosing some through a leaky head gasket , which might drip out of the exhaust and / or appear as a higher than normal amount of steam coming out the tail pipe.

Car runs well but after driving it awhile the fan does not come on. the temp gauge in the dash does not go up past halfway but steam comes from under the hood.the fan works and i replaced the temp sencer...


Typically when there is steam coming from the hood there is a pin hole in the radiator or hose. Most of the time when I see this problem there was a small chip in the radiator from a stone. It would allow steam to push out of the radiator but it was small enough to not allow any fluid to drip out. Hope this helps!

2001 Jimmy, ran a little hot and steam was coming out of the window defrost vents, changed the thermostat now steam is really comming out of the window defrost vents. What do we need to do?


You heater core is leaking causing steam to come out of the interior vents. This is quite a process to replace a heater core in one of these cars. The entire dash needs to be removed. The core itself is located under the middle of the dash towards the top. If you do this job yourself, take your time and allow a full weekend to do if you've never done one before.
