It probably has an air pocket in the cooling system and needs to be bled out.

SOURCE: heater only blows warm air.

The hoses from your heater core should be very hot to the touch. Check the hoses going to the core from the water pump. It should be very hot. The return hose should also be very hot. Now check the hoses going to the core. If they are not the same temp, then your heater control valve is not working correctly or the vacuum is not working. At any rate, locate the vacuum line going to the heater valve. Remove the silver bar on the valve from the plastic plunger arm. You will have heat all the time now if it was only a vacuum problem. You can fix it later when it's warmer out. BTW a 200* thermostat will make your heater even hotter.

SOURCE: 1998 ford taurus no heat,replaced

You might have to purge the coolent system cause when you change stuff like that you normally have to bleed the the colent system. So what you have to do is run the car untill your temp gets to 195 degrees the cut the car off and let the coolent drain down and then refill and geep doing that untill you have heat.

SOURCE: 1996 jeep grand cherokee blower works but no heat

Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps you.

Sounds like you have air trapped in the heater core when you flushed the heater core. loosen the upper most heater core hose and run the engine untill coolant seeps out. Wait until the coolant has reached running temperature.

Make sure the cooling system is not plugged up, poor coolant flow can make your engine run hot, and a plugged heater core will not allow heat in the cabin in the winter.

Hot heat at idle cool when driving


is there a chance that one of your heater hoses are clogged? or where they connect to the engine are clogged still? sounds like a clogged system. Cracked heater housing? Outside air bypassing the heater coil while driving?

I put a new thermostat in my 1994 ford escort,and still dont have warm heat while my heater is on. How do I test to see if I have a bad waterpump?


If it where your water pump isthe vehicle would overheat. After you replaced the thermostat do you run the engine at idle with the radiator cap removed until the radiator fan came one? This will help push the air out of the system. There are two other possibilities. 1. The heater core is plugged. Back flushing the heater core may help remove the built up debris and get you heat again. 2. The blend door may not be fully transitioning from cold to hot. You should be ale to hear a district change in how the air sounds when switching from full hot to full cold. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have an 1994 ford escourt wagon LX...i have replaced the thermostat and housing and back flushed the whole system..the air still doesnt blow hot enough air to warm the car up inside..this needs to be...


Even though you already flushed it I will bet the heater core has build up in it. My escort did that and i had to hook a garden hose direct to the heater core and flush it with dawn dish soap both directions several times untill all the slimy old antifreeze inside it finally broke loose and came out. Then it worked great

Van over heats it has a new waterpump and thermostat but there is no heat .........with the thermostat out it wont over heat but still no heat


Sounds like a clogged radiator and heater core. Over use of leak sealants, rust, sludge build up or other debris is likely cause. Remember that the heater core and radiator have very small passages and part of the same system of circulation, so what affects one, will affect the other, Try a good system flush before you invest any more money. Also check your temperature control cable for proper operation for your heat issue.Hope this helps.

I have a 2002 Olds Intrigue; standard 3.5, 116K miles; Problems started with a minor water leak; first mechanic replaced the Throttle Body gasket; second did an extensive pressure test on the coolant...


most likely heater core and to check if the water pump working..allow vehicle to warm up enough for thermostat to open and check for circulation in the fluid inside the radiator..if see it..water pump works.

No heat , replaced radiator , water pump, rad. cap , hoses and flushed system twice.blows cool air.whats left?


Thermostat.? if you haven't? Do it first then try it. While the car is running for a while touch the heater hoses that lead to the firewall. if one is cold and one is hot? You have a blocked Heater core. Follow the hoses back to the engine. Unconnect them both. By using a garden hose flush out the heater core do one side and then reverse by doing the other hose Lots of junk will come out so be care ful. Mistake people make is "Flushing the system" That doesn't mean your flushing the heater core.
Seeing that you have done everything else it could be the thermostat which you didn't list or the heater core being clogged. When you finished installing the thermostat and flushing the heater core out. Replenish the coolant system . If you have a bleeder on the thermostat housing? use it . loosen it and top off the fluid until you see fluid comeout of the bleeder. The system being air bound would cause no heat..
