SOURCE: Replace heater core for Honda Accord 1992 LX 2.2L

It's probably the valve in the cooling hose that lets coolant flow into your heater core. This is up against the firewall about 3/4 of the way down on the passenger side. When you switch the knob from warm to cool, you should be able to see the little "arm" on the hose move back and forth. You may need someone else to watch as you move the temperature knob back and forth.

Also, watch out for over heating (not due to the valve), because it could mean that you could need to replace your water pump and/or thermostat in the near future. If you haven't replaced your timing belt recently (or if you have) and didn't change the water pump at the same time (Honda recommended) Your water pump could be failing.

Odds are pretty good though that it's just where the cable connects to the valve. It may have rusted over time and stuck, or broke the end of the cable, or just need lubricating/bending back into place.

If this is not the case, then you may just have a clogged heater core and should have your coolant system thoroughally flushed in the near future. If none of these work, you may need to replace your heater core.

Drop me a line when you check these over and I'll see what I can come up with.

SOURCE: how to replace window motor with regulator honda

It may not be the motor. 99% of the time it is the switch. Take the switch out and remove the wires from the swithc. touch the two wires to gether and see if the window moves. It will not shock you so no worries. If the window moves you can either tear the switch apart and sand/clean the contacts inside the switch and replace it or go to the wrecking yard and buy the switch at a pick a part and replace it for 5 or 10 bucks. Those guys wheel and deal so say if it is 10 bucks then say you only have 6 on you. He will take it. If not say you will check in your change cup in the car. Then just pay him. Its always worth a try. LOL I hope this heals your owie, The Raz

I have a honda oddessey 2000 LX The front heat works at some time and some other times it does not A few months ago i change the front heater blower. Any tips outthere will be helpfull carlos

Hi Carlos, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Carlos, several things can cause no heat through the vents. Starting with the one that's mostly found. (1) Heater Core Plugged up. You see, when the heater core is restricted and the hot water is not flowing through the entire core it has little or no heat. (2) Thermostat stuck open. This can cause you to have very little heat because the water is not getting to operating temperature. (3) Low on coolant. If the water in the radiator get's low enough it also can cause little heat when sitting at an idle and get hotter while driving down the road. (4) Heater door not working properly. This is the lest likely but does happen. FIRST thing to check, "coolant level". SECOND thing to check, "coolant flow through the radiator" THIRD thing to check, "heater core plugged". Here's how to check the heater core. Drive your vehicle until its at operating temperature. Then grab one of the heater hoses going into the heater core under the hood. NOW grab the other heater hose coming out of the heater core. NOTE: If you can keep holding one, BUT must let go of the other one because its to hot to hold, then your heater core is plugged. You can try to flush the heater core but sometimes it doesn't help. But, lets try this first before replacing it. Take the heater hoses off the engine side NOT off the heater core itself. Plug one of the hoses up with something to keep the cleaner in the heater core, THEN, find a way to empty the core best done with shop air, then pour a radiator cleaner into the other hose until its full to the top, then plug it with something to keep the cleaner in the heater core. NOTE let it set over night then take the plugs out and flush out in both direction until the water coming out is clean. Sometimes this doesn't works, but its worth a try. Sometimes this cleans the heater core out and it starts leaking but, its worth a try. Carlos, hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website at:
