No heat blowing cold air.


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

Heat stopped working in 2000 pontiac sunfire


With blower on high and tempature to max heat check to see if you have good air flow in all mode selections (defrost, vent, floor etc.). If so and you still have no heat then check heater core hose going from engine to inside car to heater core with vehicle running and coolant tempature about half on guage. If both hoses are hot and coolant in radiator/overflow bottle is full then hot cold blend door is stuck in cold position. If coolant level is low you will get no heat, check coolant level first.

My 2003 Rendezvous heater blows cold air when it is stopped, and it blows hot air when driving. I have topped off the resevoir fill tank with coolant. The engine is not overheating and I don't notice any...


It may just be the way the car works. I have a 2005 Altima and it does the same thing, but just doesn't blow really warm air. Try putting the air on recirculating, that may help a little. If it's still REALLY cold when you are stopped, I would check/replace the thermostat first. If you want to check the thermostat to see if it's working yourself, just remove it, and inspect it while it is cold, then put it in a pot of boiling water for 3 mins, inspect it, if the valve has opened it is okay, if it looks the same (aka valve was open to begin with) it may just be staying open and it should be replaced.

Heater blowing cold air, 4 babies really need heat....


Your heater core could be blocked. Check the hoses going to it on the inside of the engine compartment. There will be 2 5/8' heater hoses going into firewall adjacent to one another. The tempature of these hoses should be almost the same after your van has reached normal operating tempature and your temp select switch is on hot(heat). If not it's a good idication your heater core may have some blockage in it. You would then have to flush it out or replace it. Hope that helps.

It sounds like you have a blend air door stuck. This is in the housing of the heater a/c blower unit under the passenger side of the dash. There is a motor on the top of the housing that could possibly be stuck or on working.

Car heating is broke


the heater switch on the dash activates a valve allowing hot water into the heat exchanger under the dash. I think the valve is not opening so the heat exchanger stays cold. The linkage could be faulty or the switch could be faulty.

Heater blowing cold air


My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8s with 55,000 mi. blows cold air from the heater. Coolant not circulating in engine. Lower hose stays cool to touch. Both heater hoses cold. Changed thermostat - didn't fix it. Coolant not leaking or dirty. None in oil - no oil in radiator. Changed worn water pump belt - pump spins freely with no noise or resistance. Cooling fans come on after warm-up. Temperature gauge stays in normal range then jumps to hot and back again. Coolant good to 10 below - didn't freeze here yet. No other problems or repairs to car. Afraid to drive and make worse. Help!

No heat


the temp is controlled by a blend door near the heater core and A/C evaporator core deep inside the dash, the blend door has an electric motor called a stepper motor, it has failed, so whenever the door was when it failed is where it will stay, in your case cold air position, to change this part the dash assembly must be removed.
