Not getting any heat, even after the thermostat was replaced & the system was backflushed as per dealer recommendation. Any suggestions? I'm not even getting any residual heat from the engine?

Check the hoses going into the heater core.They should be hot to the touch.If they are then you could have a temperature door not working.If only one is hot and the other is just warm then the heater core is the problem.Also check the cooling system level.Make sure it is to the full hot in the over flow bottle.

1994 dodge dakota has had cooling system backflushed, and it takes a good while for heat. I have noticed the cooling fan starts running quickly after truck has been turned on. Even in cold weather...

I am not a fan of back flushing as it tends to put muck in places that are normally free to flow. The system is designed to flow in one direction so if you need a radiator clean out replace the radiator as only the flowing cores will clean .The blocked cores will still be blocked. Run fault codes and look for cooling fan sensor problems . Check that the thermostat is not blocked from gunk as the engine may be heating water -turning on the fans --but the water is not circulating

Hi, I have a 02 Chrysler 300m that is over heating slowly. I jumped the radiator fans and they were working. I replaced all fuses and relays for the the fans and still no solution. I had the head gaskets...

thermostat, 3 dollars , ever used gasket seal or radiator fix?? somewhere your block or heads are plugged, get some radiator system flush/ cleaner ,, its got little grains of salt to break up stuff blocking need to BACKFLUSH the system, make sure you backflush, so water flows oppsite way, and always use antifreeze/coolant when you fill it back up

Cannot change temperature on heat & air

Temp is controlled by an electric motor(or could be vacuum hose) on the blender door of heater housing. If you find this is operating correctly, then the problem is a plugged heater core.Backflush it by removing both heater hoses and flushing from water pump side toward thermostat side.don-ohio

I have a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 3.4L DOHC....... The engine is over heating (yes it has coolant in it).... and I had noticed a leak in the coolant so we replaced the radiator (which had a hole in it)...

Maybe a backflushing of the cooling system can help to make it cool more efficiently.

Sediment can build up in the cooling system causing a lack of flow of coolant.

Also, the thermostat could be stuck closed, as others have suggested.

2000 Olds Silhouette (3.4L) coolant change/flush.

Power flushing is usually not a good thing as the heater cores can become blocked.I would suggest to remove the lower rad hose and drain as much coolant as possible.Refill with clear water with lower hose reattached.Bleed system of air as you fill with water and keep filling until operating temp is reached.Drive and return and drain it again the same way,now refill with at least 1 and 1/2 gallons of dexcool and don't forget to add the vegetable based aluminum protector required in your vehicle available from gm and make sure you bleed the air from the system from the valve just to the rear of the rad filler neck on the engine at the end of the coolant pipe running across the front of the engine.

2003 dodge durango overheating

I would have the cooling system serviced, complete backflush...the radiator could be so corroded it's beyond flushing and needs to rodded out or replaced... check the fan clutch for proper operation. Check the exhaust system...a plugged converter will create to much backpressure and cause over heating.
Too many overheats and your looking at potenial engine damage.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Heater not hot

Could be a combination of things. First replace the thermostat with a new one. Then backflush the system, that should fix ya right up. Hope this helps, Thanks;
