Can you be more detailed. is it the engine or heater that won't run ? if it's the engine, is the engine service light on while it is running ? if it is then disconnect the battery and wait 20 minutes then reconnect. this will reset your computer and may solve the problem. if not then check your fuel pump. if it's working change the fuel filter.
hope this is helpful

Toyota Corolla 1987 heater not working when I turn on heater fan on it's warm for about 30 sec then goes cold and the guage goes to cold and stays there


Most of the times the heater core gets clogged or corroded. inside the fire wall and the hoses run through the engine compartment and into the firewall. You can try disconnecting the top and bottom hoses and using a garden hose to flush out debris. Flush through top hole first then bottom cycle back and forth to break everything up and water comes out clear. Then hook the hoses back up. Also make sure that your radiator l with coolant at the proper level. The heat typically coming out warm then blowing cold is low coolant or clogged heater core but the gauge on the dash should only symbolize engine temp. If it stays on cold, you may also want to check your thermostat to ensure it functions and opens and closes as it should. All cheap fixes that can be done yourself.

Do you have heat when you rev it up? You could have a blocked/clogged heater core. Try back flushing the heater core in both directions to try and clear any deposits. Also if there has been any kind of stop leak added it can clog heater cores right up. Also verify that temp blend door stays in proper position.

After replacing the heater core, I now have a loose wire that belongs to the ignition part ofthe vehicle. The Chevy Blazer will crank but not stay running


It sounds like your ignition wire is loose. Look for a purple wire and follow it. You may have accidentally pulled a wire out of a connector plug.

not sure on your cherokee but often there is a valve in the heater hose line just as the water enter the heater core .. the valve is controled by the the selection of heat or cool .. those valves frequently clog up and need replaced ... you might also have an air lock in your heater core .. if air is trapped in there then it doesnt want to come out and it occupies a portion of the heating surface .. you can take the top heater hose loose with the engine running but not hot .. that will blead off any air in the core .. it will also show you if you have a clog .. you should have lot of water flow thru there with the engine running .. you may also have a bad thermostat .. if that the case then the engine wont get up to temperature preventing the heater from working properly ..

No heat/defrost 01 corolla


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.

Heater blowing out cool air


faulty thermostat will cause overcooling by staying open at all times.to check this.crank up vechicle until it warm up.becareful watch out for drivebbelt and cooling fan.feel all hoses.plus heater core hoses all hoses should be hot when engine warm up.if engine run until it get hot all hoses feel luke warm thermostat is bad. if all hoses get hot.check your fuses to HVAC mode switch.if all is good.you have a faulty heater air door or it could be stuck.your heater cores could be restricted stopped up.if you have climate control this is a dealership fix.

HEATER DOES NOT STAY HOT IT STARTS THEN IT GOES COLD


Check the heater core for a clog or the heater control valve. The easiest was to check these is allow heater to run for a few minutes and check the two hoses coming from under the hood against the fire wall. They should both be hot. If they are not, you have one of the above problems. Start with the heater control valve and replace it. It is much cheaper than than a heater core. Next, you will need to pull the lines from the firewall and see is rust starts coming out of the lines, if so, you may be able to flush the system and clear the blockage. After that, if it does not work, it will require replacing the heater core, which is no easy or cheap feat.

Let me know if there is anything more I can help you with.
