    Just did what you said and one hose is warm and one is not. Does this mean the core is plugged?

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Try and check if the heater core is plugged. Find the 2 coolant lines going to the heater core. They are right next to each other with approx 3/4" hoses going to the engine. Now, warm up the engine with the heater on max (don’t turn on the fan). Next, feel if the hoses are warm (maybe HOT!) If they are not warm, then you most likely have a plugged core. A back flush will resolve the issue. If your hoses are warm, turn on the fan. One hose should go cold (or cooler than the other, actually should be about the same temp as the air from your air vents, if there is a plug). If both hoses are hot and stay hot, and you have no heat, then the problem is not with the heater core but with the blend doors.


There are electric motors that operate the "blend doors" inside the dash directing air flow from the heater core and A/C evaporator core to the cab of the vehicle. If you feel a drastic difference in one of the radiator hoses, then try replacing the thermostat and see what happens. If all the heater and radiator hoses are pretty much the same temperature I would suspect a control problem in the dash controls or in the blend door operation. You’ll need to remove the dash to check these.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

    Yes right most likely you have a plugged core. As I said earlier a back flush will resolve the issue. If after doing this they are still warm then turn on the fan, one hose should go cold (or cooler than the other, actually should be about the same temp as the air from your air vents, if there is a plug). Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


    Thanks

Front heater blows cold air but the rear heater blows warm air


What about on defrost, do you get the proper temperature in the front, if you do it is probably a blend door issue controlled by the blend switch or knob.

Tahoe heater


Low coolant level would create a low/no heat condition.Operating temperature would be affected by a stuck open thermostat along with coolant passing through the heater core where the heater obtains its "heat".

My 2000 tahoe is blowing cold air.


Check your coolant level and make sure its full, next i would look into replacing your thermostat, if your thermostat is stuck open your engine isnt able to reach operating temperature therefore heater output suffers, your coolant temp gauge should read around halfway when the engine is hot if its not look into replacing the thermostat, if your gauge is reading halfway check the cable going to your heater box when you adjust your temperature on your heater controls its possible that the cable broke or the blend door inside the heater box is stuck into the cold position allowing only cold air to come through the vents.

My heater stoped blowing hot air.antifreeze level


If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox and Pontiac Torrent,

Heater only blows semi warm air


Check the heater coolant flow valve is fully turned on when heater selected.
Check the temperature regulation & heat/demist air flow vanes are operating correctly,
Check motor operating temperature is as per specification- if motor running too cold replace the coolant thermostat.

2001 tahoe front heater not working, rear heater blows warm air


Notorious for plugged heater cores. Also updated plastic restriction couplers mounted at heater core available from dealer. Try back flushing heater core. Run engine till its at operating temperature then carefully hold the inlet and outlet hose breifly with heater fan on high if hoses are nearly the same temp then flow is good , if not then core is plugged.
