I have a 2000 camaro as well, and it seems that is giving me the same problems... in addition to what your is doing my car overheated on the road, and lost power. I replace the sensors, flushed my radiator, the thermostat, I cannot remember if I changed the water pump... But I think at this point in time the only solution is to replace my engine.

Steam coming through heat/cooling vents


You have one of 4 problems, #1 the drain at the bottom of the plenum is clogged (this usually drains out under the car near the fire wall on passenger side if vehicle and is useful primarily during AC use to drain condensed water) #2 your heater core is leaking and requires replacement. #3, the outside air intake venting is not draining properly and allowing rain water and condensation to enter through the intake and into the plenum. #4 in rare cases coolant is leaking past the heater hose clamps at the heater core and allowing coolant to enter the plenum.

Heating, AC and vent problem


The actuator door that is behind the dash that closes off the heater core from shooting hot air thru the vents might be your problem. When you turn on your ac the actuator shuts the door to prevent the air from flowing thru the heater core into the cabin, this may be your problem if everything else is working properly. Let us know.

My heat works only on passenger side and is not very hot at all. But the other day the vent on drivers side near the window worked just for that day...sometimes the heat on passengers side is extreme


I would talk to a dealer or two.
You could have a damaged heater box or blend door. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the vents.
There was a recall for some blend doors on some Jeep models.
You may have to contact factory customer service to get it fixed.

I have an 1999 chrysler 300m an it has an overheating problem. There is also water all over the driver side floor (front n back) it is soaked. It takes about 25mins b4 it starts smoking. Can som1 plz help...


Typically if your leaking coolant inside the car, it indicates your heater core is split and leaking. Replacing the heater core is quite the job. It requires removal of the dash board and heater box. i replaced one in a 97 Cirrus at work last week and it was a 6 hour job. If your not mechanically inclined i would definitley recomend phoneing around for quotes to local auto repair shops and getting it done profesionally.

Steam fills car when i turn on the rear heat liks water have just replaced the thermastate thinking that is why linking no sing of any leak when hood is raised around the hoses or raidiator


It sounds like the leak could be under the passenger side dashboard which is where the heater core is located. The heater core a small radiator that a fan blows air over to heat the inside of your car. Is the steam coming out of the vents when you turn the heat on?

Heating AC problem


It sounds like the heater core is leaking engine coolant into the passengers side compartment. White mist could be steam from the hot coolant? The Heater fan could be damaged, or it is a short. Fill your radiator and take it to the shop or replace the heater core.

Car overheating, blows cold air out vents, changed engine,radiator,thermostat,water pump, and heater core


A couple of things to check because as you describe your symptoms you actually have 2 problems

1. No heat from vents.

Sounds like the heater water flow valve cable is kinked disconnected or the valve itself is stuck You will need to follow your heater core water supply lines to find the valve usually to the right of the center console in the ducting area / large plastic housing for heater and AC internal coils. If the valve works then there is a possibility that the heater core water supply lines have been bypassed on the engine side of the firewall with a coupling due to a leaking heater core. And l;astly the heater core could just be clogged. (quite rare!!)

As for the overheating engine after all of the work you have done.. Perform this simple test.

1. remove radiator cap
2. have someone else start the car
3. watch for water coming out of the open radiator cap area DURING start...
4. have person in the car rev engine gently 2 or 3 times. No need to exceed 2000 RPM. If water rapidly flows out of the radiator during engine revs.. you have some major engine issues.
If it passes all of these checks then the only thing left is improper hose connections on the engine side of the firewall and or a hydraulic water lock in the block that should clear itself by starting and stopping the engine many times with the radiator cap off.

Sounds like the heater core (a small radiator of sorts under the dash) is leaking or a hose going to it is leaking. If in a warm climate, you could bypass or block the heater hoses temporarily. Their only purpose is to make heat avail to interior of car. The 2 heater hoses either connect to feedthru's at the firewall or simply pass thru the firewall to the heater core. Every car I've seen has it on passenger side.

Peer up under the dash, it should be clear where it's coming from.
