If thermostat has been changed and still not hot enough, I'd take a look at this link for my tip regarding poor heat. Remember to bleed system good and make sure you have heater on when re-filling/bleeding the system. Quite often at idle, it's poor, and when RPM's are increased the heater feels hotter in this case.

    we found our pull cable was not opening the door to the coil far enough to allow heat to enter the ducts from the heater coil check the heat to cold control pull cable.

    Good Job, that's called troubleshooting ! Process of elimination, step by step checking all components usually pays off. Glad to hear it wasn't something expensive.

I have a 2007 Saturn, Aura. Heater does not blow hot, slow coolant leak, & it also over heats. Please help! I'm freezing when I'm in my car!!!


You need to fix the coolant leak, then refill and bleed cooling system, then you will get heat and cure overheating problem too

Heater low heat


check to make sure your cooling fan isn't running constantly, also if your temp gauge says the engine is hot but the heat isn't you have a flow problem. maybe water pump or a clogged/ crimped hose. if your gauge isn't very hot then put some cardboard infront of the grill.

I put a new thermostat in my 1994 ford escort,and still dont have warm heat while my heater is on. How do I test to see if I have a bad waterpump?


If it where your water pump isthe vehicle would overheat. After you replaced the thermostat do you run the engine at idle with the radiator cap removed until the radiator fan came one? This will help push the air out of the system. There are two other possibilities. 1. The heater core is plugged. Back flushing the heater core may help remove the built up debris and get you heat again. 2. The blend door may not be fully transitioning from cold to hot. You should be ale to hear a district change in how the air sounds when switching from full hot to full cold. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Sounds like it's the air control flap which determines the mix of heated and fresh air. This could be vacuum controlled or manually with a cable.

Check your anti freeze level.... Also, is your engine heating okay, may be the thermostat? Anything else, find where both radiator lines go into the firewall, if the engine is hot, both lines should be hot, if one is hot and the other cold, you need to look at the heater core..

No heat slight smell of antifreeze temp gauge stays out of red but fluctuates


in the case of no heat and slight smell of antifreeze i would back flush the heater core and also check the carpet around the heater vents under the dash if the heater core is leaking the carpet may be wet. find the 2 hoses going to the firewall if you start the motor and let it warm up with the heater on 1 should be hot and one should be cold disconnect them and use a garden hose to flush water in the hose thats cold.

You probably have air in the system. Take off the radiator cap and start the engine. Turn the heater on hot. Let it warm up and fill the radiator as the level drops. Make sure the thermostat opens and coolant is flowing in the radiator. Continue to add coolant until the level stops dropping. Also check for any bleed ports on the hoses or housings where they attach. If you see any bleed ports, crack them open and let any air out. Put the cap back on and see if the heater is working. If this doesn't work, please get back to me.

When heat control is set to max hot and fan speed at max, air is slightly cool to warm, not hot.


check the coolant hoses going into the heater core. they are the hoses running through the firewall under the hood. if they are both hot, you way have a heater core blockage. a heater core flush should solve this. if it does, you should follow up with a complete cooling system flush.

Heater not hot


does the heater core get hot, check the coolant hoses going to the core to see if both are hot, if they are U have a air temperature control blend door problem, most likely the actuator for the door has failed.
