1. Do you have a cooling fan system for your car, if you have , please check it, sometimes due to the wire overheated short problem and fan doesn’t work and cause the engine over heat.

2. If the head gasket leaking, you can check you oil steak see if there is white steam oil bubbling ,if the oil has steam and the radiator has oil mixed with coolant , that means the head gasket leaking.

The blowing of air into the coolant resevour is caused by a leaking head gasket. What's happening is the cylinder is blowing air into the cooling system causing this to happen.

    Oil mixed with water in the radiator is not the only way to find leaking head gaskets. I've seen leaking head gaskets and the car had no water in oil and visa versa. If it's leaking straight into a water jacket, oil has no way to enter there.

    I've also seen head gasket blow back and forth between cylinders and blow exhaust out between the block and head. Again, no oil and water mixing.

Why would coolant boil over, out of overflow resivor?


this is from a boiling engine
It is because the coolant is subject to excessive heat probably from head gasket or cracked head, inoperative cooling fans, blocked radiator cores or flaked fins on the radiator core. The initial problem may be from a coolant leak that dropped the coolant level.to a dangerous level.

My heater will not blow hot air in my 1999 Chrysler Cirrus


When the coolant flush was done, did you have the thermostat changed as well? I would have the thermostat replaced. If the temperature gauge was reading properly, but you still had warm, not hot air, it would lean more towards the heater core being clogged, but that deosn't seem to be the issue your having, so i would go with the thermostat replacement. And whereever you have the repairs done at...make sure they fully bleed all the air out of the cooling system, this could also cause poor warm-up / heating problems. Hope this helps...

Heater blows warm/cool air


Isn't it suppose to?

Are you trying to say the warm air isn't warm enough as it used to blow?

When is the last time you has your radiator coolant flushed and replaced with new water coolant mix?

When the vehicle is cold NEVER WHEN HOT unless you want boiling hot water to scald you. Open the radiator cap and check the coolant for smell, thickness (it should not be, it should be of water consistency) and the color should not be rusty color or you may need a flush AND you may have a sticking thermostat that needs to be replaced. This is a fairly cheap item and easy to replace, should be an inexpensive fix even at an auto shop if you can't do it.

Is the air being directed to the vents you are choosing?

We have been experiencing some of the coldest weather of the decade lately. I'm not sure if your particular vehicle has an air compartment recirculation selection option on your heater/fan controls. If you do, I would select this option and it would make the air much warmer on colder days and heats up quicker as it reheats the air already in the passenger compartment vs pulling in fresh air to reheat from scratch.

It the same as boiling a pot of water, letting it slightly cool then turning the heat back on causing it to boil quicker vs dumping out the water and refilling it with cold water and trying to get it to a boil.

Changed thermostat and added coolant but 1997


could be waterpump?
i was going to say rad fan,but if so heater would be hot.
lack of coolant will make heater core to blow cold,if engine heats up with full coolant,usually means poor or no circulation.
water pump?
run engine with full coolant,at operating temp.with rad cap off and look in rad cap hole and see if there is movement of water inside rad.
[rad fan will not come on if water is not circulating through rad water pump?]

Heater only blows cold air but hoses are hot


Hi!
It appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a system Bleed.
Park the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it again.
Check for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.
If persistent boil ups/over attention must made in the cylinder head
or gasket area, or possibly water pump?

1991 Chev Beretta blows cold air


Hi!
Looking at your description I feel a Air lock scenario?
Have you tried a system bleed?
Park vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine leave to idle, turn heater to max and blower full. Wait for engine to reach operating temp, keep clear of coolant filler, listen as hopefully gurgling then a boil over will occur, top up with very warm coolant wait as it may boil over again.
Check for heat inside vehicle, if hot replace cap but keep eye on temp as air lock may have just moved out of heater matrix/core so boil up may happen again.
If the bottom hose continues to constrict and heat inside car then possible head gasket issues.
Good luck! hope I sorted it for you? if so press the Blue button please! for my FREE effort's I Thank You!

Engine is shaking


Hi, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but from the sounds of it you have a blown head gasket. This is why you're blowing air into the coolant reseviour and the shaking is a dead miss created by the bad head gasket.
