How to get at the heater core in a 2002 sentra?

You must remove the entire dash assembly to access the heater core, this takes a tremendous amount of skill and it takes about 12 hours to do. Are you sure you are up to this. Also why do you think the heater is leaking, do you see coolant or smell that sickie sweet smell of hot coolant?

How can I fix a Mode/Blend Door Actuator problem on a 1996 GMC Savana van.

the may have a mouse nest in the air box. I have seen this same problem before. you'll need to remove the glove box and then the four or six screws ( can't remember witch) from the air box and you'll be able to see the doors, heater core and evaporator. the nest will probably be all over in there.

The heat doesn't work and i think there may be a mice nest in the heater. Where is it located?

does the fan motor come on when you turn the dial if so then you might not have a mouse as far as the heat goes it could be 2 things the thermostat or the heater core to check the heater core start the car let it get to normal temp and tuch the hoses that runs to it if they are hot then its good as for the thermastat the best way to do it is just replace it it might cost you ten bucks and 20 mins of time

My 2001 malibu is blowing cold air out of the heater. why?

Two reasons are common and then theirs some other things that happen too. The first reason is even though the cooling system has coolant in it and maybe the recover tanl appears to be filled enough the system has air in it and it;s in the heater. the second reason id the heater core is stopped up as theirs no valve shutting off the coolant flow you can remove the hoses and wash the core thoughwith a garden hose and then reconnect and refill any missing cooant anf it fixes most of them. he next thing that happens is the air blend door does'nt move forn hot to cold for many reasons 1) the air blend door motor failed ( has a gear box that fails too) 2) the blend door is stuck ( this causes the motor to fail) The blend door is broken ( as it stuck and the motor tried to force it and breaks the place with the motor fits inton the blend door) 4) the heater box is filled with rats nest or animals nest and the air doesn't go though the heater core.

2008 Chevy Uplander has 21,000 miles. Nno heat from rear heater at idle. Disconnected hoses and flushed, water flowed good. Reconnected hoses and still no heat. Raised idle to 2000 rpm and got good heat....

Uplanders with the 3.9 engine are prone to no heat at idle speeds. Probably weeping head gasket. Air bubble trapped. Dealers will remove rad cap and let it sit at about 25 deg. angle for a couple hours. Good for awhile.

Heater and ac doesnt work,fuses all work

Try taking apart your Heater Core (old cars are attached to the firewall, new cars have thiers under the dashboard) and check for any mouse nests, inoperative door openers (openers usually run off of vaccume or small electric motor), obstructions of any kind, etc. most of the times these problems are resolved with something simple like a pen having fallen in and blocking the doors from opening. also, have your A/C checked to see if its full or leaking by a professional (unless you know how to do it yourself) your heater core could also be clogged so let the engine warm up and turn on the heat( yes i know it wont work) but if the core (looks like a small radiator) is cooler than the coolant temperature then it should be replaced. while your digging around down there it would probably be a good idea to check out your squirrell cage (blower motor for the heater core) and see if it spins when the power is turned on.

Heater problems

I had this same problem in my 1985 Chevrolet Citation X-11 before i took the Squirrell Cage (blower motor) out and shop-vacc'd the mouse nests out of it. there is probably something obstructing yours as well, my heater core was attached to the firewall in the engine bay but since your car is newer than the 80's i would say your heater core and blower motor are accessable underneath your dash. when you take the lower cover off the heater core be prepaired with rubber gloves and a shop vac just in case your nest falls out, you really dont feel like catching whatever those nasty critters are carrying. if you open up your heater core and move all the doors (indicated by foam sealing strips) and everything is empty and the doors move freely (dont push the doors, use the dash controls to operate them, usually by cycling slowly from hot to cold)  then that means you dont have a nest, but i would reccomend replacing your blower motor. Keep me updated!
Hope this helps!

Heater fan noise-'02 Nissan Maxima

Had same problem. Replace Blower Motor. Over a 100 dollars at local parts store, but found online for half price. About 30 minutes to replace.
6 screws to remove glove box, One plastic nut on kick panel and 3 screws hold the blower to the air box.

Heater.cooling fan

It's under the glove box by your feet. Should just be three screws and it will fall right out.
