Find your water pump and put your finger right under the bottom of it and rub it, see if you get water from there on your fingers. If so change your water pump. If that is not the problem, go underneath to where the drip is and follow the stream up to the starting point of the water leak, The bottom of the motor is only the lowest point for the water to drip off.

Whats the problem if blender is gone in 1998 GMC Sonoma


Are the controls for opening the heat functioning? Opening the heater core and allowing fluid to pass through the core would be where I would look. For instance you could remove the outlet hose from the core and see if water is passing through. Thinking it might be a clogged heater core. How about the heat gauge on the dash? You said the hoses were hot so guess the engine is reaching proper temperature. If you have A/C can you get warm air when you use defrost? If so, the heater core is OK. Conclusion: My first thought is the heater controls are not working properly but if they are then my second thought is the core itself. Hope this helps you.

Lower radiator hose stays cold after running for hours


could be you fitted the thermostat in the wrong way around ,or the plastic impeller on the water pump with a steel drive shaft has failed they end up with the drive shaft spinning but the impeller is not turning ,go for the thermostat first though .

I have a 2001 Alero, rear defrost isn't working at all, frost inside my car, won't defrost and heat isn't working! :( HELP any idea's... I thought it was the heater core but there isn't any leakage un


You definatly have water inside the car. Pull the carpet back in the front and rear checking for water leaks. The only way frost can develope inside a vehicle is the presents of moisture.
The other possibility is your HVAC drain is plugged and water has built up inside the heater motor area. Have the drain checked and cleaned.

your heater core is probably partialy plugged try disconecting both hoses .place a short peice on the connections pour in some c.l.r. and let stand for a couple of minutes flush with water botom to top hosewil probably foam alot so wear protection c.l.r. is an acid base.you may have to do this a couple of times replace heater hoses and test.

Have you checked for vacuum leaks? Some vehicles from that era used vacuum pressure to control heating/cooling baffles. If you have a bad vacuum leak, then the baffle will never swap over from vent/cooling to heating.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

1999 Dodge durango heating sucks and leaking coolant now


Smelling antifreeze indicates to me you have a crack in the heater core. Most are made of plastic. This shows yours is metal. I guessed on 2WD or 4WD and size of engine.

Unlikely to be frost plugs unless you ran the system without antifreeze and the block partially froze. When they freeze fully, the plug pops and out and you lose all the coolant when it thaws.

Finally, this is a common problem with the Durango! As my learned colleague says, replace the thermostat as it needs to be fully open to let water flow well to the heater core.

No heat in 2000 chevy lazer just replaced thermostat


I own a 200 Chevrolet Blazer and I have it for over 4 years mine does the same thing I actually just noticed my heat getting less. My husband found the best way to fix it and the cheapest way to fix it. He takes the tube off the heater and attaches a water hose to it and flushes out the gunk whatever is blocking the hose and after he does that the heat works great. No cost and if I wanted to I could do it because its so easy. My husband did some searching on the internet and a person that this happens all the time to let me husband know. If you need more info let me know I can ask my husband he isn't home at the moment I so I don't have exact details. Thanks Amy
