Replace the thermostat in the engine coolant system - should be near the water pump or in the top hose to the rad. Mist in the heater vents usually means a corroded heater core, that should be replaced. Be sure to use the correct mix of anti-freeze, to keep the boiling point in the cooling system correct. Many who live in the warmer states, thing that plain water is OK, but it is NOT. Antifreeze contains corrosion inhibitors that protect the engine cooling system.

Car heater blowing cold air and rubber burnning


If your heater is spraying a light mist through your vents it could be your heater coil. Mine did the same thing, smell rubber burning, then started a light mist through the vents. If you don't get that checked out, it could mess up your water pump and possibly your engine

I ASSUME you replaced the heater CORE? You need to find the ticking noise in front, just turn key on, turn blower on, and find out where its coming from. It cant catch fire, not from that anyhow. The radiator releases the heat from the engine, you are using a fraction of that heat for the cab of the truck. Rap on the blower motor and see if it starts to run, if so, replace it. Check the fuse.

You may have a hole in 1 of the heater hoses running from the motor to the heater core. Sometimes the holes can be very small and rather hard to find.

How do I take out replace the heater coil in my S-10 Chevy truck?


No you do not, I think you mean the heater core, because its leaking, first unhook heaters hoses under hood (there may be a clamp on the core tubes that has to come off), next go under dash on passengers side, take the one bolt to the far right under dash by the dome light, thats so you can pull the dash out just enought to get the cover off the front of the heater box, behind that cover is the heater core, now that cover is held on with about 6 1/4 inch screws give or take 1 or 2 when you get the cover off you will see 2 straps, one on each end that hold the core in place, there are 2 1/4 screws in each one, remove them and core will come out. Put back together in reverse order.
