Open the hood and with the heater running(be careful PLEASE), feel the lines going to the heater core(2 hoses running to the firewall, to the blower motor). Is one of them hot? If both are cool, your relay valve to allow coolant to the heater core is stuck. It will have to be replaced. Is the blower fan running( that's the fan in front of the firewall)? If the valve opens but no fan running, you will not get hardly any heat. If all that is working, You have a problem with the vent control valve(that will open the hose duct to allow heat to go through the vents). It works off of vacuum. A hose may have broken (they are made of rubber), or it may be just stuck. Check these first, before looking at the heater core. I hope this helps you

I have a 2005 grand prix and my floor on the passenger side is soak with water or coolent. Is my heater core bad or can I just blow it out with a air compressor?

most of the time when you have a blown heater core they are incased and there radiator fluid wont access the car if it dose then you can by pass the heater core by attaching a piece of hose between the two hoses that go the fire wall and just drive with no heat dose not damage the vehicle and will not harm anything you just might get cold if you in cold temps other then that you should be fine. now you said its on the driver floor if you smelt it it could just be water but if it smells like radiator fluid them it could have leaked under your whole dash and onto the driver flool i would be carefull and play it on the safe side and find someone to take a look at it

The heater doesn't warm up in my 2005 Grand Prix. The blower works, but no heat! Is it just a thermostat or am I looking at something more expensive to fix?

if the tempature gauge reads normal warm the vehicle up and feel the heater hoses wich are located on the right side of the vehicle if one is alot warmer than the other you probaly have a plugged heater core remove the hoses and take the hoses off and run a hose through one of the hoses until it comes out clear. it could also be just low coolant and topping off the coolant could solve this problem temporaily but if it is low it is leaking.

Hey guys, i am no mechanic not even close, but my pontiac grand prix se 4-dr automatic with 6cyl, has been acting strange when i first start it and drive it maybe 30 min the low coolent light comes on and...

The first things to do are: 1. Make sure the radiator is full when the engine is cool (check the fluid in the radiator as well as the overflow tank). 2. Make sure the thermostat is working. 3. Have the lower intake manifold gasket checked. The Grand Prix SE came with a 3.1L engine (standard) and these engines are famous for lower intake manifold gasket problems.

Your collant level is insufficient ( too low a level ) to deliver hot coolent to the heater core....
Check coolent level in overflow bottle... it should read full....
Your thermostat is frozen open not allowing the coolent to sufficiently heat up ...

Heater works when you drive at 65 mph

your either low on coolant or the heater core is restricted, check your coolant level in the resovoir while it is running and if it is full feel the heater hoses runing into the fire wall they should both be pretty hot if the vehicle is at normal operating temperature, if one hose is much hotter than the other, almost cold, at an idle then the heater core is clogged. SOMETIMES you can switch the two hoses around by removing the quick disconnects and just install them with hose clamps and reverse the direction of the coolant flow through the heater core causing the blockage to be pushed out from the heater core but replacing it would be the suggested method

Coolent light and check engine light

Your thermostat will not affect the heat in your car. This is controlled by the heater core which is pulled from coolant from the engine where the coolant will be the hottest. Your thermostat opens and allows the coolant from the engine to circulate into the radiator and the coolant from the radiator flow into the engine. A thermostat is cheap and easy to replace. The sensor should be a fairly inexpensive and easy replacement as well. I would change out the sensor first because bad thermostat would create an overheating problem.
