Could be the heater core is plugged. Open hood and see if you can find where the hosed go through the firewall of the car. Once motor is warm check to see if both hoses are warm. If not the cor is plugged and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

My 2005 GMC C7500 is not blowing heat from the heater fan. Lots of fan power but no heat. We already replaced the in dash switch assembly and that did not fix. Could I possibly have heater core iss

Sounds like a bad heater core. Does the engine temp gauge come up to normal? if it does the locate the hoses that go to the heater and feel them with your hands. If one is hot and the other is cold or barely warm you have heater core issues.

No heat 98 ford f150

verify heat is in normal range using dash gauge. if its normal then good. if it is below normal, you may have a sticking open thermostat not allowing heat to build up enough for "hot" heat. but usually luke warm heat will be this issue.

If everything is fine with gauge heat, check the hoses going to your heater core with your hands. they BOTH should be hot. If one is hot and another is warm then you have heater core issues. If both are HOT then you may want to check your temp controls. either temp control may not be working or the door that changes temp may be stuck in the cold position... there are many things, but checking the heater core hoses are most likely going to reveal bad heater core.

You will need wiring diagrams and volt meter to diagnose anything other than touching hoses and looking at gauge.

I have a 2005 grand prix gt temp guage reads normal and heat is on and warm when start driving heat gets colder or if i change to defrost its cold air doeasnt stay hot car doesnt over heat though changed...

The heating coil is probably getting plugged up. You may have heat at idle or slow speeds, but once you get going, there is not enough coolant going through it to stay warm. Get the system flushed or replace the heating coil.

Themostat was only letting my truck warm up to about 150 degrees. I installed a new 195 thermostat and now I have no heat but the engine temp is 195. What is the problem?

The thermostat is fine but you may have an air pocket in the block or the crud in the block
made its way into the heater core. Also check to see if you have working a/c as the blend
door in the dash may be stuck in one position. My S-10 produced no heat due to the
overflow line falling off the resorvior tank behind the battery creating an air pocket in
the block.

No heat from blowerbut temp guage says normal what is wrong?

This can be caused by a bad heater core. The heater core provides heat from the motors coolant system and transfers it to heat. Then the blower motor takes that heat and blows it into the van. Another possibility is that the cold/warm blender doors that direct the air flow can get stuck in one position.
