Your collant level is insufficient ( too low a level ) to deliver hot coolent to the heater core....
Check coolent level in overflow bottle... it should read full....
OR
Your thermostat is frozen open not allowing the coolent to sufficiently heat up ...

There is a door under your dash that may not be opening and closing to direct the air to the heater core. the two common causes is the actuator is bad located behind your glove box or you have a vaccum leak somewhere because the actuator is vaccum controlled

SOURCE: heater not working, blower not putting out hot air.

There are two other good possibilities.

1) You may have air in the cooling system. A small leak can cause air, or if you've recently had the system drained/flushed or had any hoses replaced, air can get trapped in the system. Some models are equipped with bleed valves, usually on the thermostat housing, which allow the air to be bled out. Other systems can be bled by opening a flush valve or simply by releasing the radiator cap while the engine is cool and waiting.

2) There is a vacuum controlled flap style door that blocks access from the duct work to the heater core. This door remains closed when you have the heat off, are using AC or just plain blowers. It only opens when you select one of the "heating" modes or a mixed heat mode. If the vacuum line is plugged, torn or pinched off, no vacuum can get to that door and open it. Some doors have a cable that opens them, but it is still connected to a vacuum operated lever.

I'd check the vacuum hose first. If that's not it, move to checking your cooling system for air, or have it checked. They are both relatively inexpensive fixes compared to replacing a heater core.

Have a 96 f250 deisel and the heater is aonl putting out warm air. Replaced the thermostat, both heater hoses are fairly hot. I think it may the the air mixture door. How do i check this.


Seems to be that your heater core has some restrictions in it. If your heater is not getting hot. You may need to replace the heater core. The mixture door can be checked by the sound it makes when you turn the controller from cold to hot . you will hear a clump sound.Good Luck!!!

1995 cadillac deville 4.9 eng no heat


The heater in your car depends upon a flow of hot coolant going through the heater core in order to get hot air into the car. If the heater core is partially plugged, it will restrict the flow. If you have a head gasket that is putting exhaust into the cooling system, it will eventually get into the heater core. When this happens there is no coolant in the heater core to make the air warm. If the water pump vanes have corroded away the result will be very poor coolant circulation causing the heater to not blow hot air. If your car is equipped with a heater control valve that is not functioning properly, the coolant flow will be restricted. One or a combination of these factors is likely the culprit in your case.

To attempt to clean the core, you must flush the system multiple times. If this does not work, the core cannot be cleaned and must be replaced.

if the car is not overheating, the thermostat is working fine.... replace or flush the heater core multiple times to try and eliminate sediment build-up.

Fogging up issues


If you can feel the air from the blower motor blowing up on the windshield it is probably one of two things. Either your heater core has a leak and the anti-freeze mist film is all over the windows or your heater control valve is not working.
Does the heater get hot or can you feel hot air on the windshield? If so your heater core is probably leaking and making steam inside your car.

Heater system not putting out hot air


with the engine idling you water temp might not get hot enough to open your thermostat that lets hot water go through your heater core. I would first have the easiest thing changed. the thermostat could be you main problem.I hope this helps you.
