It sounds like either your heater control valve isn't opening all the way or it could also be that your heater core may be clogged.

Alway pick the thermostat with "fail-safe" relief. Look for a float like pressure relief port.

The low tech method to prevent trap air pocket is to drive the car onto an oil ramp (or hill) then fill coolant slowly.

Cold air like, really cold or just cool. Sounds like your hot/cold blend door motor has perhaps failed with the blend door in the semi hot position. Blend door motor failure is very common on the Ford truck HVAC systems. Is is located behind the glovebox on top of the HVAC housing assembly.

My mini cooper is blowing cold air inside when the car is hot and it start overheating


Clarence,
your mini-cooper may just need a new thermostat. if the thermostat in your car is the original, then 4 years is a goodly amount of time for any thermostat to last. Thermostats fail in 2 ways: (A) stuck open, which causes engine to warm really slowly, and (b) stuck closed, causing overheating and
causing the heater to blow cold air - since the heated coolant can't get past the closed thermostat to
circulate through the heater core (a small radiator-like device used to heat the interior of your car).
Your car's thermostat has failed in mode (B).
Your cost: $5-$15 at any auto parts store.
Project complexity: any handy person could teach themselves to replace a thermostat.

I have a 2001 dodge stratus and the heater only blowed cold aire now we changed the thermostat and it blows warm air when idling but when driving still blows cold need some help please


where did you buy your thermostat? if you bought a fail-safe style thermostat it could have been no good before you even put it in. also is your tempeture gauge coming up to operating temp?? if it isnt your thermostat may be stuck in the open position allowing the coolant to circulate freely and not actually warm up. i would also check the lines going into the heater core. if one line is hot and the other line is cold than your heater core is probably in need of a flush or replacement.

Heater problem


Check the heater valve on the engine firewall. If it doesn't open when you move the temperature switch to hot open the valve manually. If the heater blows hot air the cable from the switch has failed.

The heater is blowing but the air is not hot. It


Either a faulty thermostat or air in the system. Bleed the system and you still have no heater then get a new thermostat put in.
