A clogged heater core is very rare. The diverter valve is the first place I would investigate. It is cable operated and usually located near the firewall in the engine compartment. You can follow the two hoses that feed and return coolant through the firewall bulkhead and to the heater core. One of them has this valve on it. Have a helper in the cab turn the temperatue knob from cool to hot while you watch the valve. You should see the the cable cable turning the valve back and forth about 90 degrees. If this checks out you can check the heater core for clogging by draining the coolant from you radiator, and unplugging the previously mentioned coolant to bulkhead hoses. Use a garden hose held against one of the hoses to see if water freely flows through it. Keep in mind that some coolant will still be in the core. Best of luck!

I changed thermostat on 2005 buick rendevous ultra 3.6l. still have no heat. whats next?


Was lack of heat in the cabin the only reason you changed the thermostat? Were the radiator hoses hot (or very warm) to the touch before you changed the thermostat? Were the heater hoses hot before you changed the thermostat? Did you get a check engine light and code stating that the engine was not getting (or slow getting) to operating temperature?
Getting heat from your heater depends on a blend door actuator letting air flow through the heater core in the HVAC unit. If your radiator hoses are hot, your heater hoses are hot, and you have no trouble code indicating the engine is not getting to operating temperature, but you are not getting heat inside the car, you need to check your blend door actuator or the control unit for the heater.

I have a 2004 dodge intrepid the other night after a short drive I had a large leak of coolant. I checked it in the morning and found that the top hose connecting to the radiator had come off. I reattached...


The pressure from the cooling system is causing this to happen, the next part is that there is a clog in the cooling system. if you are getting a normal amount of heat in the cab of the vehicle, then you can rule out the heater core. the other thing is that it may be the thermostat.

Here are some images:

does the car overheat at idle or travelling down the road? if the thermostat was not changed, thats first step. checking it is replacing it. possibly air-bound. then i would suspect a headgasket problem.
