Hot air is dependent on the coolant temperature and the heater core. There are several things that can cause your problem. The easiest to check is the coolant level in the radiator\reservoir. There must be enough coolant to flow freely between the engine and the heater core. The next is the thermostat. If the thermostat is not closing it would prevent the the coolant from reaching a high enough temperature to allow for hot air. The thermostat is not expensive or difficult to replace. The third thing is a blockage in the heater core. Flush the coolant system properly can sometimes take care of this. If it does not the only alternative is a new heater core.
Hope this helps.

First check your fluid in your radiator if its low your heater will not work. Check all your heater hoses and make sure they are not kinked.
Your heater core may be plugged That will stop the heat flowing as well. If it's the heater core it will have to come out and replaced most likely. Not sure if there is a heater valve on that car.

Heater is blowing cold


Thermostat stuck open, heater core clogged, or heater control coolant flow valve stuck closed. With the engine at full operating temperature check the hoses at the firewall going to the heater. If one is hot and the other is cold or just barely warm, the heater core is clogged or the coolant flow valve is stuck closed. If neither is hot, you have a thermostat stuck open and need to replace it.

Mazda323f 1990.heater working bad,and to feet blouing cold air.how to fix.


The heater core can be stopped up or thier might not be enought coolant in the system as it has to be full for the heater to heat. The engine also has to warm up so if the therromstate were opening too much and the engine does'nt warm up the water will be too cold and the heat won't work. Remove the heater hoses at the motor conections and blow them though If they are Ok they'll blow though real easy. The cars cooling system does'nt blow very hard and is stopped up real easy. Blowing though with a garden hose reconnect and refill with antifreeze and your good to go. If it does'nt have enough antifrezze it could be frozen and the ice won't cicculate. If this has happened you may need to put the car in a garage to warm it up drain the light antifreeze coolant and put in good coolant withthe right amount of antifreeze.

My car is not hot air and the antifreeze liquid inside the cab beside the driver its a mazda mx3 1992


If no heat from heater its likely low on coolant, and antifreeze in cab on the floor means its probably leaking from the heater core.

My mazda 1992 mx3 it runs great cold but after warm up it spits and sputters and runs rich can you help please what could it be


Hi,

This sounds like you have a faulty coolant sensor switch which is telling your computer that the engine is still cold.

Replace this and you should fix this problem.

Thanks

1992 mazda mx3 heater blows warm, not hot


If it ran out of water and you filled it up just before the problem started then their may be air in the system so will need bleading. If that's not the problem then could be a sticking thermostat. Vheck these first and let me know if you need further help I can advise further. Cheer's

1992 mazda mx3 is overheating. checked thermostat seems to be working. Noticed that the heater started acting up a few days before it overheated......Heater works randomly, seems like you start the car...


Check your coolant. If the coolant is low, you won't get heat in the cabin. Make sure that the fan is turning on as well. Check coolant sensors also. Good luck!

Lexus heater blows cold


You could have a blocked heater core. Check for two heater hoses running into the firewall in the back of your engine. They should be together and about 5/8" in diaameter. If one is hot and the other is cooler then your heater core is blocked. Unhook both hoses and use a garden hose to back flush. Be sure to catch the coolant and dispose of it properly.
