How can iget the hot water to the front heater coil both hoses stay cold


does the engine's cooling system thermostat open and close?
(does upper and lower RAD hose feel warm then warmer)
are the hoses to the heater coil (both hoses) free of obstructions?
(pull them off and blown them out)
is the heater coil able to pass coolant in one side and out the
other? Hook up garden hose to inlet house (disconnect from pump hose nipple) disconnect heater outlet hose from pump and drop into a pail to catch outflow)
Does the water pump work as it should? ( should see fluid flow when looking through rad cap opening while engine is running)

I am assuming you have the 4.6 engine and the thermostat is in the outlet for the upper radiator hose.
The nipple or spring part of the thermostat sets down in the intake where it will make contact with the hot coolant.

Rad hose has air lock how do you get the lock out..


When a cooling system has been drained, air is allowed to enter the system. Before refilling the radiator, remove a heater hose or the upper radiator hose and thermostat from the engine side. Then, pour the antifreeze / water mixture into the cooling system until it comes out of the heater hose nipple or thermostat housing. The idea is to vent the air from the system at the highest point possible. This way, air is purged form the system and only liquid is contained. When the liquid just starts to run out, replace the hose that was taken off and finish refilling the system. It's easy, it's free, and it works!And, it could save you from thousands of dollars in engine damage.

MY 1999 SEVILLE STS IS BLOWING COLD AIR EVEN WITH COOLANT FULL. HOW DO I KNOW IF IT IS THE THERMOSTANT OR HEATER CORE. THE CAR RUNS HOT.


The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line. It's job is to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.Or trace the hose back until you find the blockage.The hose goes in to the engine to a crossover and comes out the other side to near the thermostat housing,the blockage may be there.

How to bypass heater core 1999


You need to disconnect the two heater hoses going into the heater core. These hoses will go from the thermostat housing or the water pump to the firewall of the vehicle. You can just disconnect the two hoses from the firewall connection and place a nipple in between the two hoses using good hose clamps to connect the two hoses. That is all you need to do to bypass the heater. Good luck.
