The heater core is blocked ,now what you do here is take off the two feed pipes ,use a couple of pairs of mole grips to seal them so you do not loose your antifreeze then flush the heater core with the garden hose on full ,yes i know its wet job if your not carefull but make sure you reverse the flow at least enough times till water runs clear and if you have a or can borrow a power washer use that even better ,you will see lots of brown muck coming out every time you reverse the flow .Now if this doesnt work all that well use a funnel with a pipe on one side and a length of pipe on the other thats hight than the funnel and then fill with a caustic solution and leave for a few hours then flush it all out this will work as i do it quite often .

No heat blowing cold air.

Do you smell coolant inside of the vehicle. If so then chances are your heater core is going.

The a/c on my 2010 Mercury Milan quits blowing after about 2 hours of driving. Any ideas?

Sounds to me like the A/C clutch is no good and out of adjustment.You should goto your nerrest junkyard and get a used assembly take the clutch off then you learn how it comes off and install it on yours the save the pump for later use if needed. The clutch should only have a .010 air gap after install between th inner elctro magnet and the clutch plate it's self.

Heater blower will only work on high

You need a new blower resistor by the sounds of things. When you select the three lower speed settings, the current supplied to power up the blower motor goes through the resistor, to slow the speed of the blower motor down. When the high speed is selected, the resistor is bypassed, and full current is passed to the blower. I believe the resistor is $12 at an auto parts store. Good Luck Tim

So I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix gt. I've only had it like a month and right away we notitced it didn't throw the greatest heat. Then, in the middle of a blizzard I left my car running to go check on...

If you have no speeds at all then I would suspect the blower motor is at fault (especially the thunk noise). If the blower resistor went you usually just don't have speed #1 and #2, but will have high speed. There is a slim chance the connector is at fault, but most likely the motor failed. It is located on the right side under the glove box. You will have to remove the right side kick panel, its a few screws holding it in (7mm socket needed). Then the blower motor will have 2 wires check for power and ground (purple 12V black ground). If you have power there on all speeds then the motor is no good. There are 5 bolts connecting the motor to the heater case (usually 5.5mm or 7/32nds socket needed). Pull straight down and replace. Good luck I've been to Winterpeg, stay warm.

BMW 320d e90 fan noise from AC/climate control unit. Very annoying. It comes and goes. Please note the AC/climate control still works and the noise seems to be the only problem. It only started a couple of...

Check if happening at specific settings on the fan. Fans use resisters to slow down their speed. Typically the lowest setting will mess up before the highest. If coming a going means you change the speed and it goes away.

If it doesn't matter what speed, there is probably something in your vents. Do you park outside? Mice love getting into warm cars on cold nights, and build nests... a nice comfy place can be in vents...

Or have very small kids... mine used to love putting things in the vents and have them disappear! Could be cherios

Heater/ blower on 1999 mitsubishi galant 2.0gls

Most likely the resistors are stuffed.
Top speed the electricity goes straight to the fan motor.
The other settings go via a resistor to slow the speed, hence the 3 speeds. So the resistor feed is main suspect

Heater problem

The blower motor resistor is faulty.

On high speed, battery voltage is directed right to the motor.
For any other speeds, battery voltage runs through the resistor pack (in any of 3-4 ways) to reduce voltage and slow the motor down.

The resistor is located (screwed in) inside the heater duct or box somewhere where cold air always contacts it (before the heater core) because it becomes hot and would melt if it wouldn't be constantly air cooled.

You can consult this link

for replacement of the resistor (the thread says Grand Am, but your Alero has the same setup)

Thanks for using FixYa!
