Heater blows little heat


If my information doesn't answer your question I would ask, please provide year, make, and model. The first thing that I would check is the coolant level (radiator needs to be full). Check that the coolant is reaching normal running temperature (that will be between 200-210 deg.s). Check related coolant hoses to the heater core. Check hoses for defects (a clogged or pinched hose will restrict flow). Check coolant flow valve (shut off valve), at operating temperature test both coolant hoses and see if the temperature going in is slightly hotter than the temperature of the coolant going away (if the two temperatures are very different then the heater core could be clogged? I hope that helps, please let me know. Good luck.

My car has no heat


The first thing to check is the level of coolant-is it full? Because no heat is the first indication of low coolant. When car is cool, open radiator cap and fill with a 50-50 mix of antifreeze and water. Also fill the overflow tank halfway up with the coolant mix.
Also feel both heater hoses after the car has come to normal operating temperature. Both should be hot. If they are, the heater is working as intended. If only one is hot, the coolant is not circulating through the heater, and someone will have to get that working-possibly an air block in the heater core, possibly a plugged heater core.
Finally, the blower motor may have wore out. Without the blower, very little heat will come out. Test or replace the blower motor.

My 2004 Chevy Impala only blows cold air with heat on. The heater would only keep it a little warm the other day but now only seems to be blowing cold air.


Check in the main radiator with the motor cool that the coolant is full as if the coolant is low there will be no heat in the heater. If it is low you need to check for leaks or head gasket problems. If its full check that the temp guage is coming up to its normal position as the thermostat could be faulty. Then make sure that the heater tap is operating corectly.

I have a 1998 Dodge Caravan and the heater is not putting ehat out as it did last winter.The temperature gauge is normal heat range.What is my fix.


First, make sure your radiator is full. Sometimes, when the coolant level is too low, the heater core (the part that air blows through to make warm air in your vehicle) doesn't have enough coolant in it to heat it properly. If your coolant if full, you'll probably need a radiator flush which would unclog any blockages in your system. Either of those are probably the cause of your lack of heat. Thanks.

Temperature gauge does not rise, heat only blowing warm.


Most likely the thermostat is stuck partially open. As long as the coolant level is full, and everything else is normal.

Heater doesn't work?


Your thermostat may not be working properly. Coolant flows thru your heater core where the blower motor blows that heat from the coolant thru your vents. If the coolant is not warm enough wich is a sign that your thermostat may be stuck open or opening too soo, your air may be colder than normal.

Temperature/heat wont work/dashboard lights on and off


It sounds to me like you're low on coolant. When you checked the coolant level, did you actually open the radiator cap and make sure the radiator is full? The plastic tank you generally add coolant too is actually an 'overflow' or 'reserve' tank. There is a hose that runs from that tank to the top of the radiator so if the radiator gets low on coolant, more coolant -should- run in from the overflow tank. However in practice this does not always work. I have a Jeep that leaks coolant and experiences this exact same problem. Coolant will not run from the reserve tank into the radiator because the hose is plugged up, and whenever the radiator gets low on coolant the temp gauge will go real high and then drop, and the heater doesn't work well. This is because the cooling system of your car is supposed to be a closed system, full of coolant and no air. When coolant leaks out, the space it used to occupy is now occupied by air, which does not transfer heat well. When 'air' is passing through your cooling system, no heat can be transferred from your engine to the heater and radiator, resulting in a hot engine and no heat at the heater. Then when a pocket of water passes through the system, the temperature gauge quickly falls as the water absorbs the heat from the engine. The hot water that cools the engine is where the heater gets it's heat from as well, so when water passes through the heater core, the heater works, but when it's filled with air, it doesn't.

Heater temperature does not stay hot


1st thing to check is the coolant level. I've seen cars w/ no heat, or very little quite a few times caused by low level in cooling system--not low enough to overheat the engine, but enough that circulation of coolant to heater core is affected (no or little hot coolant circulation to heater core=no or little heat),
Is the engine temp gauge in the normal range? If it's in the low range, engine not reaching operating temp. it could be caused by a thermostat stuck in the open position (or no thermostat, sometimes people remove them when their car overheats, and this should not be done).
Here's how the system works: the heater 'box' contains a heater core (a mini radiator) w/ a fan and hoses connecting the heater core to the engine cooling system. Hot engine coolant is circulated thru the heater core. When u activate the heat switch on the dash, a flap door opens to expose the heater box to the passenger compartment. The fan switch on the dash activates the fan, which blows air thru the core, which heats the air.
So, if it's not the coolant level at the radiator, the fan is obviously working, the engine is reaching operating temperature, I would say it must be the flap door that opens, isn't opening fully, or isn't staying open. It could be the dash switch is defective (not supplying current to open flap door) or less likely the flap door is binding somehow. Hope it's as simple as correcting coolant level, if not, the dash switch control should be checked
