What causes a heater to stop blowing hot air just cold in a 2005 grandam


Low coolant. Check for leaks. Could be the reservoir cap and the hose that goes from the radiator to the reservoir. No kinks in the hose.

My 2005 chevy avalanche only blows cold air until i drive then when I stop cold air Agian


One of two things has happened. Either your coolant has gotten really low (easy enough to check) or you heater core is starting to plug up.

2001 Dodge Caravan heater blows cold air when stopped


Have you checked the coolant level? What you describe is exactly what happens if the coolant level is low. When stopped at idle, hot coolant is not circulating through the heater core, so no heat. As the engine increases in rpm's when you pull away from the light, the water pump is spinning quicker, and some coolant is making it to the heater core. So check the level, and if it is low, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine. Let me know how you make out with this.

Heater is blowing cold air is there a fuse? Or is there a cable that opens to switch it over from cold to hot?


There should be a heater control valve located under the hood in a hose. One hose goes into the firewall which flows through the heater core inside the rear of the dash and another hose coming out and back to the engine. It is probably a bad control valve or maybe the cable is stuck which opens and closes it when you move the knob on the dash. Have someone inside the car move the lever from hot to cold and see if the cable to the heater control valve moves. The rest depends on how handy you are. Should be an easy repair for your local shop.

Heater not working it is blowing cold air at all times is there a


Heater blowing cold air until I get on the interstate, then it works; however, when I stop at lights it starts blowing cold air again. The temperature gauge will be in the middle but the car will still be cold until the car starts moving.

Bmw 523i se heater blows hot and cold


Sounds like a thermostat sticking. Some things to do. First check coolant level is up and moving. Second (most likely), change thermostat. Very easy fix for backyard mechanic. Make sure to put thermostat in so water flow is correct direction. Look for arrow on side of thermostat. Next, is belt to water pump loose. Another easy fix in most cars.
