Most likely a bad heater core. It's behind/under the dash. There should be two hoses that go into the firewall under the hood. These carry and return warm coolant to the heater core. The blower motor blows across the heater core and pushes the warm air into your car. Try feeling the carpet under the dash on the passenger side. See if it's damp. Many times if the core starts leaking, your carpet will be damp over there. I've also seen them completely plugged up with dust/dirt/debris/insects, so the air wouldn't flow through it from the fan.

In the winter my heat went to cold. The summer it was cold but it sounded like it was stuck like it couldn't come over of the holes in the dashboard.. it was working for this summer like I could feel...


Possible the fan went out. Need to take it to a garage. This is not a diy job. A/C problems is more complicated than just recharging. It requires specialty tools such as guages and vacuums to fix properly.

Heater and defroster don't work well


Connie this sounds like your thermostat in the engine is stuck open not letting the water stay in the engine block to heat up. The fix is to replace the thermostat with a new one that will allow the water to stay in the block to warm up. The typical symptoms of a stuck open thermostat is that the air will blow somewhat warm but never hot in the winter time, but it will take a few miles for the air to warm up at all. I would check with the dealership and find out what degree thermostat to replace it with. I run a 180 degree in the summer and a 195 degree thermostat in the winter just to have hot heat in the winter. I hope this helps

Leaks water inside passenger of my jetta 95,and get hot


It sounds like a heater core problem. Do you smell antifreeze?? You can bypass the heater core for summer use but will need it repaired for winter heat. Hope this helps. Koladge

Dropping water


Are you loosing water from the inside of the radiator?...then it is a blown head gasket, or a cracked head/block. Is there steam coming out of the exhaust? Is the water dripping from the exhaust pipe and from the small factory hole in the muffler....then it is normal. Most likely, as every car with air conditioning, the evaporator core collects frost even in the summer and the A/C cycles to heat it, and melt it off. It is meant to drip through a small pipe, under the car, onto the ground. It is perfectly clear and clean water. It is normal functioning of the air conditioning. In the winter when the defrost is selected to clear the windshield, the automatic air conditioning produces cold dry air, which is then heated to clear the moisture. Frost collects on the evaporator core. The system cycles to heat it off from time to time and it will drip clear water in the winter when you didn't even know that the air conditioning was on. After all who needs air conditioning in the winter when you did not select it. The automatic system turned it on to dry the re-heated air to clear the moisture from inside the car.

Hot water inside the car driver side


Sounds like your heater core, that's the only hot water/coolant in your car. The heater core is what gives you heat in the winter by the air flowing through the coils. It circulates the water that runs through the engine and will have a coloring to it. Its probably on the inside of the dash and is always a pain to fix. If you don't know much about cars your are gonna have to take it somewhere, or get a friend to bypass it, but then you wont have heat in the winter. :(

2005 Honda Civic No heat at idle but have heat while driving. not water pump and just replaced head gasket


sounds like a circulatory problem. at the back of your engine compartment there should be two pipes connecting your matrix to your water system. it used to be common practise that when your matrix went to just connect them together and bypass as the dashboard has to come out to repair.
