It's probably time for a new thermostat. I've never changed one on your model, but that's always fixed "no heat and temperature gauge stays low" troubles for me (my own cars(s), my kids' cars, friends...I think 10 all told). You'll normally find the thermostat in a housing connected to the radiator top hose. It's not always easy to get to, but it's otherwise a simple repair. You can try a Google search for "thermostat replacement" for your specific model, or ask at the auto parts store where you purchase the replacement. They may be able to help.

Hope this helps you, and thanks for using Fixya!

2001chevy mailbuheater won't work,my heat Gage isn't weather, , but" I can take out two relays and it works , but then the car over heats.why? What is the problems


What relays are you removing? If you remove the radiator fan relay, the vehicle will overheat. Does the temp guage move at all/very little? IF so suspect a thermostat problem. A thermostat that is stuck open will cause little/poor heat as well as the temp guage to stay on the cold side

Front and rear blow little to no heat


If you know for sure the thermostat is working, it could be low on coolant and has air pockets in the system. Only one radiator hose should be warm until the engine reaches normal temp, and both heater hoses should be very warm.

Very little heat blowing from 1997 venture. possible causes, and how to check each.


The age of your vehicle warrants Replacing Thermostat and water pump. Flush radiator and refill with fresh anti-freeze. Replace coolant temperature sending unit, its bad. Also check for any bad hoses, your vehicle is old.

No heat blowing cold air.


Do you smell coolant inside of the vehicle. If so then chances are your heater core is going.

Tempeture guage not working and heater is blowing out very little hot air on my ford galaxy


you need to get the thermostat changed. The thermostat controls how much coolant runs around the engine and sends signals to your temp gauge to indicate how hot the engine is.
if the thermostat is faulty it wont sent signals to the temp gauge and wont open up to allow coolant to run around the system. Your heating is run by coolant, behind the dash there is the heater matrix hot coolant runs into the matrix which gets blown inside the cab.
Fitting a new thermostat will fix all the heating and gauge problems. if your technical minded you can buy a thermostat from an autofactor (or ford, but they are expensive from ford). a garage will charge about £30-£100 ish for a new one.

hope this helps :-)

My 2004 Chrysler Sebring blows our cool air only when idling AND driving in town. On the interstate it blows out hot air. Sometimes it will blow out warm air in town if I'm going 35 or 40 mph. Its a tad...


When the engine temp looks normal on the gauge but you get no heat inside unless your keeping the RPMs up by driving it,It usually means the fluid in the radiator is very low.wait until it is cooled completely and remove the radiator cap and fill completely,Check resovour and fill to correct level,

Chevy S10 overheated, now heat doesn't work, leaking coolant


When an engine is overheating and then the temp drops on the guage, it's usually a sign that the coolant is not touching the temp sensor. There's no coolant in the engine. Putting water in the overflow tank won't solve this. Take the radiator cap off after the engine cools and put coolant in the radiator. you might have to crank the engine and do this several times, as the engine can develop air pockets that won't allow the coolant to travel inside the engine. If you don't see any leaks, and it still uses coolant, you've probably got a blown head gasket. Check for water on the plugs, check cylinder compression. If it slowly uses coolant, try putting a large box of pepper in the radiator or some of that radiator seal copper flakes.
