I experienced this problem on my own Hardbody and found the thermostat in engine stuck in wide open position.No thermostat can cause this as well.Advise to stay with OEM operating temp. Thermostat. Aside from that, perhaps the heater door or heater control valve is not fully opening. Keep us posted on fix.

No heat 98 ford f150


verify heat is in normal range using dash gauge. if its normal then good. if it is below normal, you may have a sticking open thermostat not allowing heat to build up enough for "hot" heat. but usually luke warm heat will be this issue.

If everything is fine with gauge heat, check the hoses going to your heater core with your hands. they BOTH should be hot. If one is hot and another is warm then you have heater core issues. If both are HOT then you may want to check your temp controls. either temp control may not be working or the door that changes temp may be stuck in the cold position... there are many things, but checking the heater core hoses are most likely going to reveal bad heater core.

You will need wiring diagrams and volt meter to diagnose anything other than touching hoses and looking at gauge.

Heat delayed


heat not blowing or not getting hot? if it's not blowing it may be the blower motor going out but if its just taking a while to get hot it could be the duct exchanger which could be a vaccume leak or you could be low on engine coolant, if the engine coolant is low the heater core doesn't get enough coolant to warm the air that passes thru it.

My 2006 Ram 2500 Diesel cab heater blows cold are out the driver's side vents and hot air out the passenger side. I can't get the cab warm in the winter unless I place the heater in recircula


CHECK all the vent hoses, are they connected, no ob strucctions, when the last time you replaced the cabin air filter ? do you have one? look @ your owners manual, also, you may need to have several heater controls, or other control on as well, see owners manual, anything fall into the defroster vents ? replace thermostat @ engine. see how this works for you, good luck

During winter time, my Toyota Camry '96 takes too long for the heat to warm up the interior but when it finally starts to warm up, it sure does not feel hot enough. Any suggestions what to do o h


i would say it is the the thermostat. it makes the engine heat up to i am pretty sure 195 degrees at a fairly quick rate then opens to cool the engine once to running temperature and opens and closes as needed to keep temperature at the manufactures setting. some get stuck open so they never truly heat up.

The heater does not blow hot air, Is there a simple fix for this problem? The heater worked fine last season. This year all I get is warm air.


There are several potential issues to consider. First, check your antifreeze level--making sure you don't open the radiator cap when hot, of course. Your cab heater uses engine antifreeze for a heat source, and when the level is low, there may not be enough fluid to reach the heater core. This is the most common reason for poor heat output in the cab.

If that checks out, it is also possible that you have clogged or collapsed hoses leading to the heater core, or that the heater core (located in the cab) is clogged. This can occur when antifreeze has not been changed often enough, when internal engine rust had built up, or especially when a "radiator seal" product has been added to the antifreeze.

It is also possible that nothing is wrong with the heater core but that the various controls, ductwork, or dampers for your truck have become jammed or broken and that the system is allowing a mix of cold air with the hot air--in spite of your setting asking for all hot air. Since many modern cars now have electronic controls for the heat, this can be difficult to judge without disassembly.

I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 with very little heat. The lines get hot going to the heater core, but I do not get enough heat out to keep the cab warm. I contacted heatertreater, but my hot cold control...


I have the same truck, I have flushed the radiator both ways, flushed the heater core both ways flushed the engine four times, I have owned this truck for eight years and still cannot get it to heat up the cab. It will keep the windshield defrosted but that is all. If you find any tricks to fix this let me know PLEASE

I have a 1999 f350 deisel i cant get the heat to blow warm or hot it only comes out cool


OK, first make sure that both heater hoses are hot, if they are then there is a little moter in the dash called a blend door actuater it moves the blend door from hot to cold it can be a pain to change. now if you have one hot hose and one cold hose you need a heater core and it is a major job to replace it now here is were it gets a little tricky in the past 3 or 4 weeks we have had 2 ford trucks come in with no or little heat and both heater hoses were just luke warm and after replacing the heater core and still not getting any heat we found that the impeller on the water pump was rusted away it still moved just enough water to keep the truck from overheating but not enough to supply the heater core.. I hope this helps GOOD LUCK

The heater in my 2001 Sierra Z71 takes a long time to warm up. MOstly does not heat up at all. How do I trouble shoot this?


THE 1ST THING U DO IS GO UNDER THE HOOD WHEN ENGINE IS HOT, CHECK THAT BOTH HEATER HOSES (INLET AND OUTLET) ARE GETTING HOT, IF ONLY ONE IS HOT FLUSH THE CORE, IF BOTH ARE JUST WARM THEN THE THERMOSTAT IS DEFECTIVE IN THE ENGINE, REPLACE IT, LET ME KLNOW WHAT YOU FIND.
