    Hi Joetta Shipley, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Its possible that you have a stuck thermostat. Do you get heat out of the vents?

Check the wiring from the computer to the vehicle speed sensor for any corrosion or damage. It could be open or shorted somewhere.

SOURCE: antifreeze pushing cap on over flow resivore and

It sounds like you need a new Radiator cap for the overflow style Radiator. The overflow style has a recovery vent which draws the water back through the radiator neck and into the engine. Low heat levels are also a sign of a water shortage.

Your antifreeze strength needs to be 50/50. This sounds like there is an ice block inside the Radiator or engine. Get the strength of the antifreeze tested.

You could have an internal leak; you need to have the system pressure tested. The overflow tank should drain back into the radiator and it relies on a sealed system to work. If you have a leak, there will be no Vacuum pressure to draw the antifreeze back into the engine.

It could be a head gasket leak, or a leaking heater core, or bad radiator or a bad hose. The pressure test can be done by anyone with a gauge. You could try Autozone or Oreillys for their loaner tools. Ask for a Radiator tester pump. You can also have the cap checked.

Radiator and A/C shops do this test routinely. A real Service station used to do this routinely until they went self-serve.

I hope my solutions give you a few alternatives because a head gasket is a costly repair. I hope you find my solutions very helpful.

SOURCE: how to get ur 4wheel drive back to 2 wheel drive

Under the Battery there is a vacum motor with a cable on it. This cable is stuck or bent as default is the car is in two wheel drive. at the other end of the cable is connected to the front axel. Notmally there is a spring that pulls the cable towards two wheel driove and the cable pulls towards 4 wheel drive, if the spring were to break or get gone once engaged in four wheel it'll stay that way. Normally there is a plastic cover on the axel where the cable enters the cover and this spring in under this cover. It's possible and likly that if used in deep mud and water that this cover will fill completly with mud and dirt and it will need to be cleaned out to work smoothly. if left dirty for a long time the sping and the sliding parts can lock up and it will not engade or disengage. After driving in dep mud and water it's best to clean this area oput and with no disassembly you can wash this place with a high pressure car wash wand and clear all the mud out but if it rusted you'll have to take it apart and clean it and relube it. If you want to run the truck in deep mud regully you need to do this yourself as paying someone else to do it could be expensive. If your not handy with tools and the way things work it'll be best to have a professional do it with you watching. This truck if run in and out of four wheel to run in the mud regularly will do this over and over again and knowing how to do it right, and which tools work best and how hard to hit the stuck parts with a hammer are all best learned from a pro and don't try to teach your self. If your just going to run around all the time in 2 wheel drive just pay to have it done and if you don't put it in four wheel it won't go there unless you turn it on.

1994 toyota camry- recently replaced radiator, timing belt, water pump and thermostat- no heat when idling- lots of heat when reving the engine or driving

check your antifreeze mix, this is a common problem when your antifreeze mix is too much antifreeze and not enough water. 50/50 mix to 55/45 mix is ideal for most applications. too much antifreeze and not enough water will not transfer heat as well as the proper mixture.
make sure your mixture is 50-55% antifreeze.

Hi;I have a chevy s10 pickup 1996 no heat the radiator and heater core has been flushed twice.Also has a new thermostat and it wooked acouple days and now back to luke warm air any ideals?Thanks Randy

It is possible you have air bubbles in the cooling system. Loosen radiator cap or resivor cap and let idle for about 15 minutes. Tighten cap and drive and see if that helps. REMEMBER TO START THIS PROCEDURE WITH A COOL MOTOR AS THINGS WILL BE QUITE DANGEROUS DUE TO COOLING SYSTEM PRESSURE WHEN HOT.

Heat won't blow on floor when in floor position on 2002 chevy s10

Your dial in your truck works off of a small vacuum line switching the gate for flow. I had the same problem in my s10 truck and it seemed like after a minute or so i would finally work. Come to find out there was a small rip in the hose next to the dial causing a leak.
