Have you tried or looked into the heater core? is there any coolant within the cabin of the vehicle? have you had your cooling system serviced? Did you check the glycol level just curious, because lack of heat would not really be a fuse issue unless no power or your blower motor was not even coming on,. Simple thing is there a fresh air option that might be selected and your truck is letting in cold air mostly instead of keeping that closed and heasting up. Try to see how much heat you get on recirculation, as if you are getting some heat and have changed the thermostat, and water pump and your coolant is good, look into heater core.That would not allow you to get heat so worth a shot to elimate simple variable then look into that. :)

Why is my heater blowing cold


Most likely it is the heater control valve that shifts air from blowing across your heater core to your air conditioner core.

If your fan works and your car is fairly new..meaning your heater core isn't dirty and full of craap...then it is the climate cotrol valve.
If you are lucky, it might be a thermostat that is bad and blocking hot water from entering your heater core. Bottom line, if hot water doesn't circulate thru that little heater core, you won't get heat.
You might be able to look under the hood and grab the hot water lines that go thru the firewall and feed your heater core. If they feel cold to the touch after engine has warmed up, then you aren't getting circulating water to the heater core. If they feel nice and warm, then the heater core is fine, but your climate control valve has closed off the fan that blows across the core to disperse heat into the cabin

Heaters running cold at 90 degrees


If the engine is running at a normal temperature I would suspect the thermostat.
Normally from a cold start the coolant should only circulate through the bypass hose, the heater matrix, and back through the engine, As the engine warms up and the thermostat begins to open the coolant is directed through the main radiator - at this point you will be able to feel the upper and lower radiator hoses warming up.
If the thermostat is faulty and permanently open you will be able to feel the upper and lower radiator hoses warming up very soon after starting the engine and at the same time as you feel the heater hoses begin to warm. This causes most of the heat to be radiated away and so the heater will never warm up.
Unfortunately the thermostat is hidden underneath the water pump on a passat and requires the cooling system to be drained before it can be changed. It may also require the power steering pump to be removed to get access to the thermostat cover.

Changed thermostat and upper hose. found pin hole in hose, but this should still not cause no interior heat should it?


I had a camaro do the same thing and it was the heater core plugged with brown gook! I took the hoses off the heater core on both ends and put the hose in one of them until water came through the heater core. It took a little time but in became unclogged in a few. Brown water for a bit. Then reconnect and see if you get warm air for your heater. Hope this works.

Heater does not put out hot heat just slightly warm after a while


If thermostat has been changed and still not hot enough, I'd take a look at this link for my tip regarding poor heat. Remember to bleed system good and make sure you have heater on when re-filling/bleeding the system. Quite often at idle, it's poor, and when RPM's are increased the heater feels hotter in this case.

03 impala 3.4 runs hot and redlines cools when driving fans work also no heat in winter unless driving could these be the water pump


yes and also have your thermostat changed. but heres a way you can check before you buy these things:
#1 car must be cool
#2 let car warm up with hood open
#3 find upper radiator hose and put hand around it...you should feel any water running through it!
#4 after car warms to normal op temp, put hand around hose again and give it a squeeze...it should feel Hot and you should be able to detect a slight water back pressure..this will mean that both your pump and thermostat are working correctly. Also it is imperative that you read my tips and tricks on Dex-cool antifreeze, please, you could save thousands of $$$.

1999 Honda Accord heater not blowing hot air


Sounds like a thermostat or cooling system issue. Change the fluid and the thermostat. It will do your engine good so it's money well spent.

2001 crysler town & Country 3.3. when it gets really cold the engine wont warm up. heater doesn't work. replaced thermostat and water pump. still no heat


Hello Justin.
If your thermostat has been replaced with the proper one your engine is heating up.
The problem then becomes twofold.
The amount of coolant/antifreeze flowing through the heater core or a problem with the airflow over the core inside the heater plenum assembly.
I would check for coolant flow through the core first.
If the heat feels like it is warmer coming out an outlet with the fan on a low setting rather than a high one your heater core isn't flowing enough.
To verify you can also check the two hoses that go through the firewall to your heater core once the vehicle has been warmed up, feel the temperature difference between the two. They should both be almost hot enough not to hang on to and close to equal temperature. A hand held temperature gun is really handy for doing this.
If one is hotter than the other your heater core has restricted flow and will need to be flushed or replaced.
Next is to check your temperature blend door operation.
Move the control to hot and cool and listen for the door to move and feel for the temperature to change, if it does at all. The fan on low setting is best to listen and feel temperature changes.
If you feel a temperature change or hear the door thump at each end of it's travel it is OK.
If you have more questions on this problem leave it in "add a comment" and I will return your question.

Heater blowing cold air


My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8s with 55,000 mi. blows cold air from the heater. Coolant not circulating in engine. Lower hose stays cool to touch. Both heater hoses cold. Changed thermostat - didn't fix it. Coolant not leaking or dirty. None in oil - no oil in radiator. Changed worn water pump belt - pump spins freely with no noise or resistance. Cooling fans come on after warm-up. Temperature gauge stays in normal range then jumps to hot and back again. Coolant good to 10 below - didn't freeze here yet. No other problems or repairs to car. Afraid to drive and make worse. Help!

Heater blows cold air


With the car warmed up,feel the heater hoses,are they both warm/hot near the firewall in the engine compartment?If they are both warm/hot,then the heater core should have circulation through it and it may be a "blend door" issue in the heater a/c assembly.If they are not warm/hot then the heater core could be dirty and plugged up and needs to be flushed.
If the above does not help,a drain and vacuum of the cooling system and vacuum refill will remove any trapped air.
Sometimes,clamping off the top rad hose and holding the engine rpm at 2000 rpm will force trapped air out of the heater core.(Watch temp gauge when trying this)
Lastly,a NEW thermostat doesn't mean its working correctly.
