It doesn't sound like hot water is circulating thru the heater core. That model should have a valve on the intake hose that goes thru the firewall. Check to see that the cable is connected and the valve is working. If it is working properly, the hose should become hot on the heater core side of the valve.

Locate the dipstick tube to check the trans oil and remove the dip stick and put the oil down the tube. Replace the dip stick and check the level when you think you have enough in the tranny. Hope this helps.

Heater in the cab of my rv not heating

Have you checked your heater by any professional? I think the problem might be in the insulation of RV. There may be the leakage issue. If you found any leaks than use some liquid coatings to repair. Reply back if your problem remains unsolved

I just bought a 1989 minnie winnie Winnebago with Chevy chassis, there was no generator all wires leading to generator were disconnected. There is no power to the rear cab unless the engine is running. The...

The wires that were hooked to the Generator were also hooked to the aux batteries. you'll have to trace the wires that are disconnected. Also, if you plan on just using your alternator to keep the aux batteries charged, then you need to make sure you have at least a 100 amp alt, If you use the batteries while the van isnt running it takes a big toll on the regular 60amp alt that most of these vans come with. I'd buy another generator and hoo it back in myself.

I have a 2000 Chevy Venture van and the heat when turned on blows cold. For a while it was still blowing out warm air thru the back vents but now it is all cold. The van wouldn't warm up at all e

needs the water system back flushing out, heater being cold is its blocked up some time a few back flushes and forward flushes with a hose pipe should free up the dirt inside, same with the engine and radiator. there are meany videos on you tube to help you understand how to back flush you engie. but do the radiator and engine and heater separate so the muck does not go back into the engine.

2001 tahoe front heater not working, rear heater blows warm air

Notorious for plugged heater cores. Also updated plastic restriction couplers mounted at heater core available from dealer. Try back flushing heater core. Run engine till its at operating temperature then carefully hold the inlet and outlet hose breifly with heater fan on high if hoses are nearly the same temp then flow is good , if not then core is plugged.

2001 tahoe front heater not working, rear heater blows warm air

I have the same problem with my 2001 Tahoe. The front blower is working, its blowing strong, but its cold air even with the temp setting as high as it can get. The rear blows hot air. The engine temp guage is at about 210ish which is close to being normal (220). I just replaced the thermostate a few months ago, I don't know if its bad again, or it I deluted the antifreeze too much and it frooze the heater core, or if the heater core just went bad. Any one know what the cause could be?
