Heat core fluts not working

Hot air mixing with A/C and when selecting floor or mix the air only comes from dash vents. Something in the heater core behind the radio is not working as it should. Are there any pictures that show inside the heater core how the flute should work?

    when I had the radio changed out the tech cut the unit behind the radio to allow the new radio to fit in. Now I cannot get the vents to change correctly. There is something loose in the unit behind the radio. Are the any pictures that show what is in this unit so I can maybe fix it?

This is a simple fix you need to go under the daschboard and find the funcuaitor door flaps and check the hoses that run into the back of the climate control module and make sure they are properly in place it's not the heater core unless the car pours antifreeze on the floorboard on the passenger side of the car

SOURCE: jag xj6 1993.no cool air regardless of heater control position

If you put your AC on, and you get hot air instead of cold, you are likely out of Freon. You can buy it and fill it up yourself or you can take it to a car shop.

As far as condensation, you mean in cold weather right? After you drive after a while, your car is hot, and if your vents dont completely close, that hot air will go into your car. Thats a problem with your air vents, they're either not closing completely or the seals are bad.

SOURCE: A/C only from center vent. Heat from side vents and floor vents.

sounds like the blend motor from hot to cold is stuck open half way allowing both temps to come into the car.

2007 toyota camry LE 2.4L does it have a heater control valve?


There is a blend door in the heater box in the passenger compartment. This door mixes the air from the outside and routes it through the heater core. If it is stuck, then no air comes through the heater core. Check for the levers under the dash by the center console and see if they move.

1999 dodge 5,9 diesel warm heat only


First thing I would do is flush the heater core with a 4 to 1 mixture of water and muratic acid. Put it in there and blow it out both ways 3 or 4 times. Let the acid mix set for about 10 minutes before blowing it out with air. This is a cheap fix, if it works. $7 and your time. Got to say though, it only works about 30% of the time. The other 70% is to remove the heater core. Dodges/Chrysler su(k. To get to the heater core, you have to drop the steering column, and remove the entire dash. Then remove the heater/A/C plenum to remove the heater core. Buy a manual to do this. Way to many hidden screws and bolts. This job costs about $800 at a garage. It takes about 8 hours to do, if you know what your doing.

96 Grand Am 2.4l A/C not equipped - Lots of cool air through vent. Almost no air to defrost. Blows hard to floor (great temp mix). Every vent setting? Mech just replaced heater core? What? Fine before


Looks like your mechanic messed up. If he has any integrity then he should take care of you. If not and you want to try and tackle it yourself then you have to ask yourself this: do I want to pull the dash out? Because that is what that will entail. Sounds like he may have messed up the ducting somehow. Unless the blend doors and directional doors are electric actuator operated in which case those actuators need to be replaced

The A/C pump starts when i move heater controls to defrost or mix


Great question dustin but the A/C is suppose to come on in defrost or mix mode- this is floor & defrost. Does not seem to make sense does it. One of the things the a/c does is remove the moisture from the air. You need warm DRY air to remove the moisture from the windows. An automotive H.V.A.C. ( Heating,Ventilation,Air conditioning) first forces air thru the a/c evaporator core then thru the heater core and out the selected vent. If you only want a/c a blend door will by-pass the heater core which is controlled by a hot/cold knob or digital temp cotrol on the dash. Now back to the cold air problem- assuming the basics are all ok- Coolant is full, Engine gets up to proper operating temp-around 195 degrees- upper radiator should be hot. Both heater hoses should be hot. If thats all OK the blend door might not be working. It is controlled by an electric motor called a Blend Door Actuator which are prone to fail. I have replaced many on ford vehicles. Hope this helps

ONLY WARM AIR FROM HEATER, REPLACED THERMOSTAT, STILL ONLY WARM AIR. UPPER RADIATOR HOSE & HEATER CORE HOSES ARE HOT.


The next possibility, if you haven't already thiught of it, is as simple as making sure there is enough water/antifreeze solution in your radiator. If the level is too low, your hoses will get hot, but there will not be enought water to circulate into your heater core.

2003 Toyota Echo heat not working. Fan, but no heat.


There is a valve on one of the heater hoses that allows heated water to flow through the heater core when you select heat. With heat selected and car warmed up check to see if both of the hoses feel warm. If not then water is not flowing through heater core and valve may need replaced or heater core is stopped up.
