Try putting water through it both ways, if it just won't go then pulling the heater core is the only option. You may be able to get it opened up and flowing once you have it out- if you see a bunch of scale in it try a mild acid such as a bathroom rust remover. If it's plugged with radiator sealer then lye will remove that.

And you may have to do the hateful thing and buy a new one.

I have no heater in my car.i have had the car for a year in a haft.it blowes cold air all the time cant turn it off.


Check the temperature of both heater hoses on the engine. If they are of different temperatures, either the water control valve is not letting water into the heater core or the core itself is plugged. If both hoses are the same temperature then the blend door inside the heater housing on the firewall isn't working.

Check the heater tap turns on and there is good water flow through the hoses and heater core ,check that the water temp is at least 85 deg.cel.. could also be the baffle in the heater core broken off.

Why is my heater blowing cold


Most likely it is the heater control valve that shifts air from blowing across your heater core to your air conditioner core.

If your fan works and your car is fairly new..meaning your heater core isn't dirty and full of craap...then it is the climate cotrol valve.
If you are lucky, it might be a thermostat that is bad and blocking hot water from entering your heater core. Bottom line, if hot water doesn't circulate thru that little heater core, you won't get heat.
You might be able to look under the hood and grab the hot water lines that go thru the firewall and feed your heater core. If they feel cold to the touch after engine has warmed up, then you aren't getting circulating water to the heater core. If they feel nice and warm, then the heater core is fine, but your climate control valve has closed off the fan that blows across the core to disperse heat into the cabin

92 chevy 1500 silverado Changed thermostat,heater core, core hose not hot. No heat


It sounds like your heater core is stopped up. try flushing it out, you can use a water hose. and if you cant get it to clean out then you will need to change the heater core.

Heater does not work have flushed engine changed thermostat and heat flapper valve


the problem maybe heater core stopped-up. need to see if coolant is flowing thru heater core.and check to see if heater hoses are getting hot near heater core . if take off heater hoses to core with water hose run water thru one side of the hoses to see if water flows thru the other hose.

Its leeking water out of a hose and cant see what the hoese goes to


is it water or coolant? aside from the upper and lower radiator hoses the only other hose carrying coolant is the hearter hose that goes to the heater core.inside the firewall. if it is leaking at the heater core. or the core itself is leaking this is a major job. as the heater core must be removed and tested.

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee smell anifreez incar here water going back and worth but se no leak but have to re fill water once a weak.cant find leak under dash . but here water go back and forth wile...


the water sound i believe is from being low in antifreeze..if you are adding water oncce a week then there is a leak.. try looking on the inside of the car on the passenger side carpet to see if its wet..if not, then check things under the hood such as, heater hoses for heater core, water pump, thermostat housing, radiator, core plugs, block heater..if the smell is coming from the inside and there is a film on the window, then chances are you need a heater core....try that.

if it has a back heater either a water line to the heater core broke or the heater core for te back heater sprung a leak probabley the heater core on the back heater replace either the hose or the back heater core whatever is leaking.

Heater core?


ok most cars you wont see a physical drip because the box is sealed to the firewall it will run out the drain hole the same as the ac if bad enough they will leak down the insulation right to the floor board running pure water will cause rust but rarly causes the heater core to blow what you arre looking for is the problem that started it all why she was adding water to begin with you didnt mention the type of car and motor so i really cant get into diagnostic procedures you can bypass the heater core on most cars if it is using that much water you propably have a blown head gasket that will make the heater core blow let me know the type of car and I will help you diagnose it further
