Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

The heater on my 2001 Hyundai Accent is not working properly. Sometimes I get hot air, sometimes I don't, sometimes mist and a funny smell come from my vents. Also there are times in which the thermostat gauge will go high, as if engine is overheating and then goes back to normal? I have been told it might be the heater core, what steps can I take to troubleshoot and make sure it is the heater core and not something minor? If it is the heater core, how do I access?

It could be the heater core, but before you check that check the thermostate that could be the problem for the over heating

Heater not warming up


Most likely the thermostat broke. I expect that you have an older Hyundai and never had the anti-freeze changed. When the engine is cold the thermostat is closed which causes the engine to warm up more quickly. A warm engine runs more efficiently (less gas) and more smoothly. When the engine temp reaches a certain temp the thermostat opens and then allows the hot engine coolant to run through the lines to the heater core. The heater blows air over the heater core which produces the warm air that warms up the cabin. Thermostats used to be cheap and easy to change. I would suggest a web search for how to replace the thermostat. Something like 'hyundai accent 2002 replace thermostat".

Why doesn't the heater blow hot air?


If your "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light is on, you need to have that checked out first.
If not, the next thing you should check is your engine coolant level. (Antifreeze) If the coolant level is low, the engine coolant does not circulate through the heater core and the the heater doesn't work. The coolant level could be low for a number of reasons including a leaky hose, water pump, or head gasket. In any case, if it is found to be low, you need to find out why.
If the coolant level is OK then the thermostat function needs to be checked to make sure that the engine is reaching operating temperature.
If all of the above checks out OK, then the heater control valve and/or the blend air door in the HVAC housing needs to be checked for proper operation. (NOTE: some cars are not equipped with a heater control valve)
