Sounds like there is air in the system. Some cars have a bleeder valve to remove air after refilling the system. Not sure if or where yours would be, but if you look around the top of the engine and follow the cooling lines you might find it.
Other possibility is you have an internal (gasket) leak and you are blowing air into the system from the pistons - not good.

No heat at idol low heat at speed flushed system, changed thermostat, right now do not have coolant in will that make a difference


yes if its not full of coolant it wont blow heat... let it cool down, fill it with coolant, start the vehicle with your defroster on, all the way over to hot, and on high, watch the level of the coolant, when the thermostat opens, the coolant will be sucked out of the radiator, top it off, after a few minutes you will feel heat.

I have a 2000 chryler concorde with no heat. I changed the thermostat.I 've checked the coolant. The blower is working but only cold air. Any solutions


if you have changed the thermostat. did you bleed air out of system, if air is trapped in system it will not heat right! drain radiator and flush it good, but when refilling turn heater on high heat. then bleed air out when refilling system. most all cars have a bleeder for air. if in doubt, call any auto parts store to find out where yours is. if air is in system you will see bubbles appear from bleeder. also when flushing engine, make sure you start vehicle so it circulates through engine as well as refilling system. if the upper radiator hose gets hot then check for heat from car if it is ok! close bleeder and make sure radiator is full. I think the biggest culprit is air trapped in system. before starting the flush, be sure its not caused by low coolant in radiator. have a good day!!

I have a 2000 silhouette. the coolant level low light keeps coming on even though coolant has been added. after about 10 minutes of idling the temp rises to just below h.but temp is fine while driving....


Bleed the air out of the coolant system,and add more coolant,to radiator,and reservoir,and make sure the cooling fans are coming on,if the low coolant light stays on,remove the low coolant light sensor,and clean it off,it is located on passengers side in the radiator,it has a wire clip you have to remove,and dont loose it,after cleaning it,put the clip back on the sensor,and push the sensor back in the hole.

At high speed engine temperature is Ok, at low speed or idle it warms up to over half way and the coolant level warning light comes on. There is plenty of coolant, an new water pump and a new thermostat....


is cooling fan coming on?? the coolant level light pertains to a sensor that is in radiator side tank that is notorious for going bad you may have two seperate problems normal temp at high speed tells me the wind passing across radiator is keeping cool when stopped or in traffic as temp increases pcm commands fan to come on if it does,nt you will heat up

2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat


Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.
