Check to make sure your radiator is full of antifreeze and you overflow tank is up to the required level. Low antifreeze will make it so you don't get heat inside the car. If that is up to the right level, it sounds like you might have a thermostat that is stuck open.

Good Luck

Why wouldn't I have heat in car but, a/c works, and engine temp is operating in normal limits?


Heating is a separate system. There is probably a control valve that is not opening.

Change heater core water pump one pipe get hot


try some comma's?
my wild guess, is you are trying to fix a dead cab heater, right?
and if so, can be caused by 5 things wrong. total.
1 engine coolant not hot (180F or more)
2; fan dead.(cab heater fan)
3:or core , coolant path blocked. (seems you)
4; core exterior core blocked with leaves or pin needles. (sucked in)
5: optional core valve , stuck closed. (cable bad, etc)\



one pipe hot , means ,? core pipe 1 is hot, and other is dead cold?
this flow blockage , bingo !

if pipe 1 is 180F and other is 120f this is normal the heater is heating air in the cab and is dropping due to this heat exchange. (normal)
so why not do the 2 year full flush service now. (skipped i bet)
core hoses:
remove the 2 hoses on engine side, never core side (easy damage)
then back flush both hoses. with a garden hose.
if there is a valve there, test it and make sure it's opening... and free flowing.
and that both engine water ports are open too, from heater hose
to engine. (yes, they pack up too)

Heater on car wont heat but engine overheats


You need to power flush the cooling system and put in new antifreeze. Either take it to a garage that has a power flusher, like Walmart, or buy and install a Prestone flushing kit and do it yourself.

Flushing a radiator is basically removing the pedcock value and running a large amount of coolant through the system?


Purchase a tee made by Prestone at any auto parts store. Install the tee to the heater hose and flush it by their instructions. This way you also will flush out the heater core as well. Flushing the way you describes only gets the job halfway clean

My 1998 toyota camry heating doesn't work, a/c is ok


Sounds like your heater core went out or is plugged, try doing a coolent flush on your system and if that dont work then youll propably have to replace the heater core. Hope this helps

Heater wont work


Could be the diverter valve. It's the one located near the firewall2_bing.gif in the engine bay. The valve is in-line on one of the two coolant hoses that run through the firewall2_bing.gif. Have a helper rotate the temperature knob back and forth, with the ignition turned on, and you watch to see if the valve is being adjusted. I'm guessing it isn't. Sometimes the cable pops off its perch, other times someting is broken on one end of it or the other. Plastic parts are often used in this assembly. Best of luck

No heat/defrost 01 corolla


Sounds like you have air trapped in the heater core when you flushed the heater core. loosen the upper most heater core hose and run the engine untill coolant seeps out. Wait until the coolant has reached running temperature.

if you claim that your heater core is flushed properly then my bet is the temp regulator is bad.

Heater in 1998 Ford Taurus


When u flushed the radiator, what did u find? Was the old coolant dirty, rusty, sediment in it? What u describe sounds like the core is plugged up w/ junk. This would be my 1st choice of the problem, especially if the coolant was rusty, cruddy, as described above. It wouldn't be an air pocket (after a couple of years). Some cars do have a valve that opens and closes to allow the hot coolant into the core for heat, or a flap door that opens to allow the fan to blow air thru the core for heat, but the fact that this started when u flushed the system leads me to believe it's a plugged up core. U could try to flush the system again, make sure the heat is on when u do, so u have circulation tthru the core to help flush it out. let me know how u make out. good luck!
