Why would you want to do that? It should be ok. Its the same water as the cold, in a motor home or camper. just heated.

My 1998 chevy s10 has a New water pump.new raideator and new thermastat.why is it still running hot?


check for flow, if there is a blockage in the cooling system like heater core, hose collapsed can cause overheating. you have done the usual things for an overheat condition. you might want to have the head gasket/s checked by getting a test done to check for CO in the coolant. it may be a head gasket that needs replacing.

Can i drive my 2010 jeep liberty with a leaking heater core?


The heater uses the coolant (read antifreeze and water) from the engine to get hot. If it runs low enough, by say leaking out of the heater core, your engine will overheat and that can be bad for it and expensive to fix.
Although most antifreeze is poisonous, (don't drink it) if you keep your window open the fumes will not hurt you. That being said, it will stain the carpet, make the inside of the car smelly, leave a puddle on the floor, cause the floor boards to rust(slowly) and mainly be annoying.
Since we are starting into summer you can get by for awhile by just adding water to the coolant tank under the hood. Make sure you do this when the engine is not hot. Engine coolant can give you severe burns if you take the cap off when the engine is hot.
So, about an hour after you get home from work go and check the engine coolant level. If you can hold onto the radiator hose then it is cool enough to add some more water. If you add more water then leaks out you can drive the jeep.
FYI The leak will get worse over time.

Teperature gauge running hot and heater not working


If the car is hot and the heater blows cold air your thermostat is stuck shut or your radiator is really low on water/antifreeze check when engine is cold hasn't been ran like overnight take off the radiator cap and if it is low add so antifreeze/water if heater still blows cold air or water level is ok your thermostat is stuck shut and needs to be replaced.

My heater is not working


Its likely time to have the radiator and engine ...and... heater cor flushed of rusty sludge that prevents flow and circulation from hot engine to cold interior of car. Have a mechanic do it or you 'll have the neighbors complaining of the rudsty crud on the ground, dogs drinking coolant etc. Replace old grunge with fresh coolant and water mix. Make sure you know which coolant you engine likes. Some will wreak havok so be sure you look it up.

My heater doesn't work. Hot water is circulating,


if both heater hoses going into the fire wall are hot,remove the heater control assembly from dash and make sure cable is connected and do the same under the hood where one heater hose has a valve connected to it,

'89 Maxima car heater stops blowing warm/hot air


You will have an 'in' and an 'out' hose going to the heater core. Run engine until hot, these two pipe should be both quite hot, if the out pipe feels cooler than the in pipe then it would seem the core is blocked. You say you have no leaks so maybe it would be worth removing both heater pipes, fix one side up to the water main and gently pass water through it. Hopefully lots of Brown sludge should come out.
If both pipes feel hot then the core should be ok. This means it will be an air-distribution fault and maybe the flap is stuck that changes it from hot to cold air.

Heat does not work. coolant level ok and temp is ok


Might try checking the temp blend door operation or the temp blend door actuator. If all good there perhaps the control head itself is faulty.
