Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

The call will not conistently blow hot air into the cabin of the car. Water pump and thermostat have been replaced, the two hoses that go into the firewall: one is hot, one is cold/luke warm. I have flushed the heater core and trying to look for a water valve running in line with the hose but have not found anything, am i not looking for the right thing? what could be causing this problem, it will only blow hot air after running for a while and usually at high rpms

    system has been completely burped now, changed the heater core as well and still no difference. I get a small amount of heat when the blower has not been used and after driving for approximately 20 minutes. I do not know what to do!

The system is not entirely pugred yet. check your coolant level in the radiator if you can, fill as necessary, same for the resevoir. If you have any purge vales in the system. start the car and open them until coolant comes out, do this a couple of times to check for trapped air. be careful of hot coolant.

    One other thing I did , but this was to the older dodge caravans, theywouldtrap air in the heater core. I would remove the hose that was luke warm and start the engine let it run untill I got a good amount of fluid coming out, then reconnect the hose, add more coolant to the system.

2005 gmc savanna van...cooling system will not blow hot heat. water pump,heater core,radaitor and thrmostate replaced. is there any electrical problems/


don't know this van specifically, but some things to check, make sure cabin filter is replaced or clean, you didn't say if the blower itself works, if not, correct or replace. Check the hoses going to the heater core, if hot water is flowing thru the core, both hoses should be hot. Check the heater controls to make sure doors in the system are opening closing as they should, you may just be drawing in cold air and not going thru the heater core.

1996 nissan altima no cabin heat, new radiator, flushed and filled, top hose hot, lower hose cold, newer thermostat checked good


HI Anon.
Remove your radiator cap (WHEN ENGINE IS COLD), run the motor and let it warm up a minute or two, have someone rev the engine a little while looking into the radiator. If the water goes down and/or you see the water moving, your water pump is good. If not this means that your water pump is bad and is not moving enough water through the system. Try Removing your thermostat and run the engine without it. Keep checking the radiator hoses to see if they are the same temperature. If they are not the same temperature the water pump is bad. If they are the same temperature your thermostat is more than likely the culprit. Hope this helps.

Was not getting warm air in the cabin so i assumed it must be the thermostat, replaced it - still no heat, thought maybe from replacing thermo i may need to get any air that might be traped in the system....


On most cars (all that I know of) the heater works by directing the hot water from the engine through a small radiator in the cabin and blowing air across it with a fan. If you hear and feel the fan blowing air then it could be that the valve that diverts the hot water to the small radiator is bad and no hot water is being circulated thus no warm air. In order to fix that you would have to locate the valve and replace it- many times they are in hard to reach places.
hope this helps

No heat , replaced radiator , water pump, rad. cap , hoses and flushed system twice.blows cool air.whats left?


Thermostat.? if you haven't? Do it first then try it. While the car is running for a while touch the heater hoses that lead to the firewall. if one is cold and one is hot? You have a blocked Heater core. Follow the hoses back to the engine. Unconnect them both. By using a garden hose flush out the heater core do one side and then reverse by doing the other hose Lots of junk will come out so be care ful. Mistake people make is "Flushing the system" That doesn't mean your flushing the heater core.
Seeing that you have done everything else it could be the thermostat which you didn't list or the heater core being clogged. When you finished installing the thermostat and flushing the heater core out. Replenish the coolant system . If you have a bleeder on the thermostat housing? use it . loosen it and top off the fluid until you see fluid comeout of the bleeder. The system being air bound would cause no heat..

The heat in my 1992 Jeep Wangler is not working.


The only reason it won't blow hot air is because the water is not getting to the heater core. Check to see if you have a heater control valve in one of the two lines to the heater core. If so check to be sure that is is opening and closing. If it won't open then you get no water flow in to the heater core.

Sure the heater core may be blocked ... do you get hot water when the engine is running? do you see the hoses that go from the radiator to the heater?
