Could be that the thermostat is stuck open or it was removed. FYI-How the thermostat works: Thermostat is closed when the engine is cold, after the engine reaches a certain temperature the thermostat is supposed to open to allow coolant from the radiator to the engine, if the thermostat fails it will either stay open or closed, so it may take sometime for the engine to heat up.Try that. Good Luck.

1995 wind star min van blowe cool in rear and hot air in front plenty freeon fues are good


I would check the blend door actuator. If the door is open all the way, one direction, the air blows over the heater core. All the way in the other direction, the air blows over the evaporator. Anywhere in between, a blend of hot and cold for temp control. That explanation is a little simplistic. the info is for ford windstar.

fill the rad to total capacity, also your heater core is most likely "air locked" you nede to loosen the return line from the heater and with heat set to high and engine running, allow fluid to leak from the loose connection until all air bleeds out. since the heater is higher than the water pump it will not force it out on it's own. you could get a mechanic to do this for you but why waste money for a simple fix

You have an air leak. The heater should be patched for leaks. It is a home project that takes 10 min

Heater will not blow hot air


Assuming the radiator is full of coolant, and the engine is reaching normal temp of 190 degrees, you could have a blocked heater core or the temp control valve may not be working on the heater hose.
I would check to see if both heater hoses are getting hot.

Our heater takes about 20 mins to blow warm air, and then if we are stopped at a light and the engine is idling it gets cold. Also, in the summer when we turn on the a/c it blows hotin the front and cool...


always check the coolant first, then feel both heater hoses to see if they are equally hot.
if one hot and one cold, then the heater core is clogged
if both hot then you have a blend door problem.
on the a/c there's some time a rear unit that blow cool air even the front does not

HEATING PROBLEMS


Need more information. The most important thing would be to watch the heater water valve move when someone turns the control from hot to cold, back and forth?
Heater valve controls tend to be operated by vacuum, and switched by a heater computer. Lots of possibilities. But first tell us what you see move when operated? Valve is usually in engine compartment, in the heater hose. Follow the hot one.

Heater only blows hot (well, warm) on full speed of fan
