My kid has a 96 neon i've replaced the radiator and themostat and the is still running hot there's only two things left heater core but there's no antifreeze on the passenger side (2) i thought it was the water pump but when the car runs hot i turn on the heat in the car it's cool air so could it be the heater core plus the water pump

    When it's running hot, have you felt the radiator and hoses to see how hot they are? Charlie

If you're not losing coolant, it's much more likely to be the water pump. Most heater cores leak when they go so although it's not impossible, I'd be very surprised if the heater core was even partly to blame for your overheating problem.

Blows cold air from heater


Some things it could be but not specific to your vehicle.
Do you smell antifreeze? Engine temps running hot? Has it run hot?
No antifreeze in radiator, when cold take radiator cap off and look to see if it is full. add as needed in radiator and overflow container.
Heater control valve not working properly or inop.
Clogged heater core. Leaking heater core-heater core bypassed.
Heater box door not operating properly or inop.
Vacuum leaks or broken lines/cables.
Intake manifold leaks
Clogged radiator
Could be many things, checks/tests need to be performed to determine the cause either by you or a certified repair shop.

Smell of coolant and smoking


smoke from exhaust could be cracked head or blown head gasket but normally when one of these two things happen it runs crappy if it runs at all smoke from under the hood you may have a pin hole in your radiator or hose or even heater core put some stop leak in it watch for puddle of anti-freeze under the hood and on the ground keep a close eye on your tempature gage and a close eye on you anti-freeze levels and dont add fluid when the motor is hot this will crack your heads good luck.

Heater blows cold air,replace belts,themostat,accuator(door llender)


try flushing your coolant system. if you have air compressor.remove hoses to heater core and try ro blow it out. also with the car running see if the hoses are the same temp. if not try blowing out the heater core. also start the car and see if the water pump is pushing water out of the hose goimg to the heater core. also a bad radiator cap could keep it from heating up.let the car run and see if the top hose gets hard to where you can not squeeze it. if you can than replace the radiator cap. hope this helps leave comment.

2001 plymouth neon heater won't blow hot air. only cold. we have changed thermostat, radiator cap and flushed radiator. not odor through vents or leaks on floor board(heater core)


There is a problem with your climate control. It is not allowing the vent to open that allows air to pass through the radiator.

If rad/cooling system runs low on coolant, it will starve heater core of hot coolant that it needs to put out heat. Fill rad, with heater on, and cap off, to bleed out any air in system while you run it for a while with cap off, and see if that doesn't give you heat back.
