Try flushing your heater core with a garden hose. Go from one pipe to the other several times.

1999 VW Passat heat not working


Could be your thermostat... If defective, it will not allow the engine to heat up. Take the coolant cap off before you start the car when it is cooled off. start the engine and let it idle, look at the coolant. The coolant should not be flowing or moving right when you start the engine, if it is, the thermostat is bad. If you dont have enough coolant and you see it is low, this may also cause the heater to stop working. Someone may have by-passed your heater coil, check that. Sometimes when a heater coil leaks, people will by pass it so that they can continue to use the car or they cant afford to change it. It should be located on the passenger side under the dash or on the firewall inside the engine compartment on the passenger side. Another thing could be your climate control which is a fancy name for the heater controls on your dash, sometimes the switches become defective and will not operate the heater.

Coolant temp guage will not rise. heat blows cool.. when coolant guage does rise heat blows hot. doesnt always rise.what do i do or fix


Most likely, the engine thermostat is stuck open or missing. Changing the thermostat (or installing one) may solve your problem.

My 2001 pontiac montana is over heating one min.. and fine the next when it starts over heating the heater will blow cool air instead of hot and the resavor where the coolant goes will fill up and bubble...


it could be two things...
a heater hose has worn out or got cut in someway or the heater core is bad and needs to be replaced...that could also cause you to smell some antifreeze in the car
and the over heating problem should be that there is still some air in the system after your mechanic changed the thermostat...so some air bubbles might be in the thermostat and then it gets over heated...when the air bubbles get out of the thermostat then the car stops over heating...
so let your mechanic remove all the air from the system in order for the car to run perfect...
it shouldn't be harmful to your wife and kids...but you should try to fix the problem asap :)
Good Luck!

1999 Ford Taurus, no heat. Air comes thru all vents but blows cold air like the ac is on. Replaced thermostat twice, flushed heater core twice, still ice cold air. Help?


Try checking the two pipes that go into and come out of the heater matrix, is one of them hot? if it is there is an air lock within the matrix, Also is the thermostat opening fully? Sorry i know you said you have changed it twice already but take it out check settings when it should open and close, then boil some water and test the thermostat

The heaters are not blowing hot


Hi,

The first thing to check/replace here would be your thermostat. This controls the temperature of the water in the engine. If the heaters arent blowing hot then the thermostat may be stuck in the open position menaing the water is never heating up.

Have a google or consult your manual for how to access/change the thermostat

Thanks

No heat blowing from vents already replaced


I had a problem with that in January 2008, my thermostat was fine. I took my car in to the dealer and they said the hinge that opens and closes the hot/cold air inside the dash broke. They had to remove my entire dash and replace the part. Luckily I was under warranty and didn't have to pay but the repair would have cost $3000.

Heater system not putting out hot air


with the engine idling you water temp might not get hot enough to open your thermostat that lets hot water go through your heater core. I would first have the easiest thing changed. the thermostat could be you main problem.I hope this helps you.
