SOURCE: do you have to change the timing belt when changing water pump

Yes thats correct the if the water pump goes so goes the timing belt even if it looks good. The timing belt is only good for 50,000 miles if you have more this then you got your moneys worth.

sounds like your A/C compressor has failed.
Thermostat only controls coolant going through engine - not the refrigerant in the A/C system.
The bad compressor is causing extra load on the engine and making it heat up.
Unplug the compressor and take a test drive.
If it is unplugged - the clutch will not engage.
see if it heats up - and report back with your findings.

SOURCE: Why doesn't the heater blow hot air?

If your "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light is on, you need to have that checked out first.
If not, the next thing you should check is your engine coolant level. (Antifreeze) If the coolant level is low, the engine coolant does not circulate through the heater core and the the heater doesn't work. The coolant level could be low for a number of reasons including a leaky hose, water pump, or head gasket. In any case, if it is found to be low, you need to find out why.
If the coolant level is OK then the thermostat function needs to be checked to make sure that the engine is reaching operating temperature.
If all of the above checks out OK, then the heater control valve and/or the blend air door in the HVAC housing needs to be checked for proper operation. (NOTE: some cars are not equipped with a heater control valve)

Most often this means the freon has gone down. You can add it yourself a lot cheaper if you are a little mechanically inclined by just buying a can of freon with a built-in gauge at Walmart or auto parts stores. Follow instructions on the can but be patient. It takes 10 to 30 minutes to add all of it. Or, a mechanic can do it. He will charge at least 40 to 80 bucks. If you or a mechanically inclined friend do it, less than $20.

I have foul odor coming from vent when blower is on


A very common malidy, more then likely you have a mouse for a guest in your cabin air filter. Puzzled me for days when my wife's car was turned into a mouse Bed & Breakfast..make sure you change the filter after cleaning the mess out

My 2003 TrailBlazer has a foul smell from the air system. What could be causing this smell? It's a sour smell not a dead animal smell. Is there a cabin air filter? I've read several posts and some say...


you can buy a deoderiser that kills all known airborn nasties,you spray it into the air inlet of any aircon unit,the only smell that it will NOT get rid of is cigarette smoke.that sticks to the filter/condenser and all the vents...nasty.

Smell comes thru air vent.


You might have both. The fresh air intake is under the windshield wipers, that vent takes in the fresh air from outside. The filter is usually in the rear seat section on vans and suvs, somewhere, sometimes up front under the dash. You can switch your ac or fresh air control to recirculate and it will cut off the outside air. We always do it on dusty roads and dead skunks. Hope this helps.

Changed the 2 cabin air filters but bad odor still comes out vent


If you run your Air cond on recirculate always try using an air sanitizer in your return vent. Or switch your A/C to outside air flow for for half an hour and raise the rear of your sunroof panel to vent the stale air do this till the smell dissipates and then close he sunroof and reset the A/C to recirculate if desired.

Does 2004 Mazda MPV ES equip with a cabin air filter?


(cabin filter solution) Their is an cabin airfiliter behind the glove compartment (2004 mazda mpv) which is very easy to take off. Replace the airfilter or clean it with soap and water. Open the glove box and on the bottom left had side of the glove box if you apply enough presure on it by pulling it out towards you and slightly down it should pop off. The right side should slide out immediately following the left side pop. All it is, is a fork like claw holding on to a bar. On the ride side is a bar sliding into a hole. That should do the trick. After the first time its a sinch.
