The thermostat in your car controls the temperature of the fluid entering the heater core. Thermostats have different temperature setting i.e. 195,180 etc. When the rated temperature is approached, the thermostat starts to open up, the fluid path is changed and the temperature of the fluid is held at the rated temperature. If the thermostat opens too soon, or fails to close the heater core will not reach max temperature, and the air from the heater air will be cold ,not hot. Also if the mechanism that opens the duct door may not work,and the same problem will occur. Also, your core may have a fluid control lever which may not work. so the the thermostat in the ac needs to be checked and replaced to solve the problem.

2000 ford mustang v-6 heater does not blow warm air at all


If the engine is reaching proper operating temperature and blower is working you could have a bad pressure cap or a low coolant level and if not this then possibly an air lock or a plugged heater core or a defective controller unit.

Your coil that allows air to pass through for A/C or heat could be plugged or the thermostat is sticking.

Occasional heavy smoke on tickover, but not using oil and oil clean.


HI do you now the color of the smoke
if engine emits white smoke its not burning the fuel
it could be water mixing with fuel = head gasket even tho you
dot have water in the oil
if engine emits black smoke - that's excessive fuel to air ration
check air filter & air inlet to see if clogged

if engine emits blue smoke - excessive oil consumption
cloud be valve seals

Smoke emitted from the engine area


If your oil is turning milky and smoke is coming from the engine check to see if your exhaust smoke is blowing white. If it is, you've got a blown head gasket. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but good luck.

1996 toyota celica ac not blowing cold. freon is fully charged & ac compressor cluch is on but just warm air comes out the vents


The flap that directs cold air and warm air may be stuck in warm air position. This flap is controlled by a vacuum operated actuator that is attached to the vacuum lines and the control panel. This can go bad. Otherwise check in compressor sight glass to make sure there is no air bubbles or fog, that would indicate a leak in the system

I have a 1994 Lexus ES300 that emits a little bit of smoke when started when it is cold and also emits a oil or rubber smell through the air vents when it is warming up. The mileage is 92500. Can anyone...


Hi!
This is possibly due to Crankcase compression, worn piston rings allowing gasses into crankcases forcing a haze of oil out of the breather pipe which is usually located on the air filter or manifold.
You can remove this and relocate it away from the engine, remember to try and filter the gasses.

Heating problem, temperature gauge


there should be a dial to control the center vents. i believe its in between the vents or just below it. it should have blue and red marks on it. move the dial towards the blue indicator and the air should now be cool. in cold weather, move this dial towards the red indicators for warm air. you can adjust temp at these vents by moving the dial between red & blue.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7


Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.
