You need to know the size thermostat you put in the lower temp thermostat the warmer the engine gets sooner. You may need to replace the heater core.

Heater not warming up


Most likely the thermostat broke. I expect that you have an older Hyundai and never had the anti-freeze changed. When the engine is cold the thermostat is closed which causes the engine to warm up more quickly. A warm engine runs more efficiently (less gas) and more smoothly. When the engine temp reaches a certain temp the thermostat opens and then allows the hot engine coolant to run through the lines to the heater core. The heater blows air over the heater core which produces the warm air that warms up the cabin. Thermostats used to be cheap and easy to change. I would suggest a web search for how to replace the thermostat. Something like 'hyundai accent 2002 replace thermostat".

1998 Ford Ranger heater blowing cold air only. What are some posibble causes and how do I fix it.


First, make sure the radiator and tank are full of coolant. Drive car to operating temperature, check to see if the heater hoses are getting warm, if not back flush the heater core. If engine is not getting warm, replace the thermostat

HEATER NOT HEATING


If your heater is not blowing warm air, your thermostat is probably sticking or your coolant level is critically low. When you start your vehicle, your radiator coolant begins warming up from being cycled through your engine block. One the cooland reaches a certain temperature (usually 130-150 degrees F.), your thermostat spring will retract and allow coolant to then pass into your heater core. However, if your coolant level gets too low, or if you are using a coolant mixture that has more water than antifreeze, thermostats have a tendency to rust and corrode and will stick. Thermostats can also go bad for what seems like no reason at all. The good thing is that usually thermostats are pretty easy to replace. It's the most common thing that would cause the problem that you're explaining. However, if changing the thermostat doesn't fix the issue, there is always the possibility that you could have a collapsed hose somewhere under your hood. If you change your thermostat and none of your hoses are in bad shape, you most likely will have a vacuum line to reconnect under the dash, as most heater controls in late model vehicles are vacuum operated. I'm almost positive that the thermostat will be your culprit though. **Make sure when installing the new thermostat that you use a new gasket or O-ring, whichever applies. Afterwards, start the vehicle and watch to see if you have any leaks around the thermostat housing and continue to observe until the temperature of the vehicle gets to normal operation temperature.

I hope this helps, and hopefully you'll have heat pumping through your vents in no time at all!
Have a great day and try to keep warm!
