Trace the vacuum lines at the firewall in front of the passenger side. This is where the vacuum system starts on the other side of the heater core. Follow the lines backwards and look/listen (turn heat on high) for leaks. Spray them with a little soapy water and look for bubbles. Also look for any frayed ends (a common problem). If you encounter a frayed end, simply clip the bad end and reattach.

I have like a rust colored dirt coming from the radiator and radiator hoses. I've replaced the radiator, thermostat, coolant temperature sensor and water pump. I have no heat. Car registers hot but no...

Have you backflushed the heater core? Check to see if both heater hoses are getting hot and if not flush it if possible. NOTE: most modern cars run hot water through the core at all times, but direct the inlet air through the core to supply heat by use of flapper doors usually operated by vacuum actuated devices. Vacuum leak, bad check valve to vacuum reservior, or bad actuator can prevent any heat.

When I put the heat on in my car it blows warm air for a few seconds then goes to blowing out cold air.

The lack of heat in the car has little to do with the car's cooling system, other than the hot coolant is the heat source. 95% of all "no-heat" issues are related to heater controls and/or the heater core itself. Since you get some heat, and then it goes away, this indicates a probable vacuum leak in the heater controls. When you select heat, vacuum is directed to a vacuum motor. This motor operates a vacuum actuator that moves a linkage that moves a door inside the heater box to direct the interior air through the heater core. If this actuator has a leak, it will activate, then as the vacuum leaks off, deactivate. You probably need to have a part replaced in the heater actuator mechanism.

I have a problem with cold air from heat vents.

Replace the thermostat. When the engine is hot. There isn't a hose on it that you can hold for more than a couple seconds. 200+ degrees.

Cannot bleed coolant system

I am very doubtful you have air in your hoses causing the problem. Feel the upper and lower heater core hoses at running temp and verify they are both hot, and should be same temp.(make sure heat is on high in car) Some newer cars lose some heat to the cab just because they are low on fluid. More likely though, you may have a bad radiator cap. If your cap is good, watch your hoses and make sure they aren't collapsing( the hoses will look like they are breathing in and out with car idling). You could even have a bad thermostat, or your heater core could be plugged. You can flush your heater core and see if that don't fix it, but since you have heat then it decreases, your core is probably ok.

I have a 2001 s10 and no heat and I clean out the heater core and the water is not getting hot it's running bout 125 what can I do to fix it.

These s10 s have problems with the heater core plugging up, you said you cleaned the core, you used a water hose to flush the core at the core and flushed going both ways a few times, the cooling system even with a bad thermostant will put out heat it would just take a while so your saying theres no heat at all so that eliminates the thermostat, make sure the system is bleed of all air and try runniong the eng with heater hose to core removed and see if coolant flows out of the hose. this is to make sure the pipe is clear to allow coolant flow. also check and see if both hoses at core are hot, if one is hot and the other cool then the core may be plugged.if both hoses are at the same temp then you may have a blend door problem. i have seen the vacuum line that controls some of these that still use vacuum to control blend door instead of actuator have a broken vacuum hose at the engine at intake area. if the vacuum hose is off or broken then cool air is all you will get. check around the intake, theres a vacuum line that runs to the firewall on the pass/side and goes inside, make sure that line is connected and has vacuum. good day

Feel the hoses going to heater core, one should be hot and the other warm. If one is cold or both are then heater core is clogged. Make sure heater control valve works and as vacuum to it and or the cable is free.

I change the heater core on my 2002 ford f150 now there is no heat ac works on both settings hot and cold

Did you bleed the air from the system after replacing the heater core? You may need to run the system open with coolant flowing to get all of the air out of the heater core. You may also be able to remove the upper hose to the heater core and pour your coolant mix into it, replacing the air in the system with coolant. If that is not the issue, check the controls on the system, be sure that all electrical wires and vacuum hoses have been reconnected to actuate the baffles or doors in the system.

Your baffle for the heating system is often vacuum powered meaning it runs from vacuum lines off the engine. Check your vacuum lines for cracks

No heat

It sound's like one of two thing's, first open the glove compartment look behind to the left you will see a clear vacuum line going to a goldish in color accuator remove it once the vehicle is at normal operating temp. if you get heat then you have a problem with the vacuum switch, just plug the vacuum hose, you will have to reconnect it in the summer to get the AC working. The other problem could be the heater control valve, located under the hood inline on the hoses going to the heater core, upper passenger side of the fire wall.
