My 2005 honda civic is not producing heat only blowing cold air


Check that the heater pipe are hot, there are 2 pipes 1 in and 1 out. if both cold could be stat .If 1 is hot and the other is cold it could be air or blocked heater matrix, with car running take cold pipe off . if water flows out check its warm, if it flows out cold leave till water warms up then put pipe back on, make sure you keep radiator topped up while your doing it, if no water comes out when you take the pipe off the matrix is blocked, take both hoses of and flush through with a hose pipe.

Wheres the hood latch on a lotus esprit 99


US models such as my 1991 Lotus Esprit SE is to the left of the steering column at the bottom of the dash. Reach down and feel behind the dash there will be a rectangular pull or pivot which releases the hood.

Overheating problem


i had something similar once, it ended up being the intake radiator hose, it has a metal coil inside, mine was broken and when you revved the motor it would **** the hose shut and overheat, but under 2000 rpm it was fine .

My car keeps running hot change water pump hoses temstat its in between fire and engine wall and somebody said its not heater core


Firstly before commencing any new work , ensure that you do not have an air lock caused by replacing the previous various parts. Follow the pipe from the thermostat, with engine running and it should heat up when thermostat opens. Follow this pipe towards both the Heater matrix and the carburettor. Both should warm up slowly. Have the heating on inside the car to blow warm. Then feel the exit pipes from the Heater Matrix. The exit pipe should also heat up. If they remain cold the you have an blockage within the Matrix which can either be air or debris. To cure air, let car cool down and remove expansion vessel cap. Then remove exit pipe from heater matrix and hold pipe aas high as possible.....if air is causing the blockage then it will purge itself, when water starts coming out of Matrix, reconnect pipe and top up levels as required. If nothing comes out, the matrix is blocked, may respond to after market flushing treatments or may require removal (pig of a job) Do check before this that oil is not getting into water circuit (dark floating bits if mild, all light brown if bad)or vice a versa (white scum on bottom of dipstick)which would indicate blown head gasket is causing car to overheat!

Over heating engine. water on floor in cabin. windscreen fogs up after short runs. loss of coolant. strong smell of coolant/rust in cabin. water seems to be entering thru heating ducts.


Soundls like (REALLY LIKE) a broken heater matrix. You can bypass the matrix by pulling the water pipes from either side and joining them with a piece of copper pipe to stop the leak and make the car useable for the time being. You will have to get a new matrix and fit it or have it fitted if you want a heater tho...
Don't let the engine overheat - you'll turn a slightly pricey job into an enormously expensive and time-consuming job if you let it overheat too much.

The car blows cold air when you put the heat on. where is the thermostat loccated on the 95 oldsmobile ciera


TO FIND THERMO STAT FOLLOW TOP HOSE FROM THE RADIATOR IT WILL DIRECT YOU TO IT
BUT IF ENGINE RUNS AT RIGHT TEMP SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE AIR BLOCK, OR BLOCKED HEATER MATRIX, CHECK FIRST CHECK THE HEIGHT OF THE HEATER MATRIX IN THE CAB , IF ITS HIGHER THAN THE FILLER/EXPANSION TANK. THEN COULD BE AN AIR LOCK, LOOK FOR THE HIGHEST PIPE AND SEE IF THERE IS A BLEED VALVE, IF NOT TAKE BOTH PIPES OFF THE MATRIX FEEDS (TWO PIPES GOING FROM ENGINE BAY TO INSIDE OF CAR, AND FLUSH OUT WITH HOSE TO SEE IF IT IS BLOCKED, AND RECONNECT LOWEST PIPE FIRST AND FILL SYSTYM TILL WATER APPEAR FROM TOP AND RECONNECT RUN MOTOR, AND KEEP TOPIN UP, YOU CAN BY A COOLENT FLUSH SOLUTION TO CLEAN THE SYSTYM OUT

Lotus Esprit S4 NOT idling correctly


the se esprits the s4 and s4s series are programmed to speed up engine rpm and close off the exhaust back pressure valve to speed up the heating of the catalytic converter to operating temperature and is quite normal regardless of engine temp. if you quickly blip the throttle pedal a few times it should settle as the cat temp rises if that is the case then it is all working as normal.
