Car heater blows cold

Clogged heater hoses. Look for a clog where your heater hoses connect to your engine for corrosion. Especially down in engine part of connection and through any extension tubes.

Got ac but no works fine and no fuses blown.

Check heater valve selonoid by removing electrical connection and then remove the 2 lower hoses.Then use a garden hose and water in one of the bottom hose connection.If water comes out the other end, it's good. If good flush out heater core.Make sure the engine is cool and not hot before opening up cooling system. Had same problem in 95 xj12 there was air in the heater core.they call it air lock.

Heater blowing cold air regardless of climate control temperature setting

If you look by the firewall there are two hoses. They go into the heater core. When the engine is warmed up, and the heater on. Feel if both hose are equally warm. Be carefull you don't burn yourself. A valve lets the hot water circulate through the heater core therefore providing heat. Also feel if the heater core is warm under you dash on the passenger side. If it feels cold then water is not circulating. Locate the valve, which is usually vacuum operated. See if there is vacuum there when the heater is in the on position.

No heat jaguar 88 xj6 fan wont turn on cool air out the defrost vent

I have the similar problem with both my Jaguars, one is a 1988 Jaguar XJS, the other is a 1987 Jaguar XJ6, both blow COLD air out some vents while it blows warm air for heat. I heard it had something to do with the cold air blowing as a dehumidifier, I don't know if this is true, but it is really annoying to have both cold and warm air blowing when I need heat in these cold Canadian winters. If you find out please drop this website a note and let us know how you solved it. thanks.

Heater will not get hot

first, make shure that the water level in the radiator is apropriate, then ck the thermostat for oppening and closing(you wont have a heater if the thermostat is constantely open) ck the 2hoses that suply hot water to the heater core, both hoses must be hot when engine is runing .if one off the hose is cold ,the hot water is not circulating to the core and back to engine .ck the valve , see if you can by pass it and see the results if you have heater , replace the valve. nicolas
