Have you checked the heater water valve for proper action? If it is in the off position, water won't flow thru the heater core. It may be cable actuated or vacuum actuated.

My car keeps over heating and i dont have heat


The first thing is to check the coolant level, make sure engine is cold beefore removing the radiator cap, then start car with cap off and add as much as needed, this problem is not a bad thermostant, a bad thermostant would overhaet but would give heat, even if it was stuck open the heat would take while to get hot but then car wouldnt overheat, this problem one one of these problems, . low coolant or a bad waterpump, i have seen a few like this and the waterpump propeller rots away and coolant cant circulate, the last thought would be a bad head gasket but you would get heat when driving, so if coolant isnt low then waterpump is bad. hope this is helpful.

Overheating


The first thing to check would be the coolant level, do this when engine is cool, if its full of coolant then my next step would be to make sure the fans are turning on, the most common thing would be a thermostant, you may want to start there and then see if it still overheats, if it does then take alook at the electric fans, if they are not turning on you may have a bad sensor that controls the fans to turn on at a certain temp,that part would be the coolant temp sensor, but start with the thermostant and checking the coolant level.

1994 Camaro: My engine is overheating. Ive flushed the ratiator...


It could be the radiator fan motor if all sensors and relays have been changed.......unplug the coolant temperature sensor the fan should come on and stay on unless the motor is bad or it is not getting electrical current.

I have a 2000 Tracker and the heat just stopped working - What could be the cause?


There are thermostates the will stick in the open postion1 this will cause you not to get heat if that is the issue. Air in the cooling system will cause this too. Or low coolant check your coolant level!

HI, MY CAR IS OVERHEATING. MY QUESTION IS IF THERE IS RELATION BETWEEN HEATER NOT WORKING AND POSSIBLE AIR LOCK IN THE COOLING SYSTEM??? THANKS


It is possible, but an air lock does not form by itself, generally only happens when the system is drained and re-filled. Your heater won't work if the system is filling with exhaust gas from a blown head gasket, or if the coolant level has dropped due to a leak somewhere.

My engine is over heating when I turn on the heat to let the engine cool only cold air is coing out


Check your coolant level very likely it's low...after re-filling, check everything for leaks...coolant you lost had to come out somewhere.

Heat only comes on once in a while on my 1991 camaro


try flushing out the heater rad with a hose first ,if this doesnt work then look at the flap controls ,particually the thin vacumn pipes that run to the control units that open and close the vent flaps .Have you checked the coolant level in the radiator¿¿?

Have very little to no heat in my 2001 venture van do you think its possible to be the head gasket or just thermostate


The thermostat is a good place to start if the only problem you are having is little heat.
Before you start removing the stat, check the following things:
-is the coolant level full?
-is there coolant leaking onto the ground?
-are the heater lines that run coolant into the cabin hot?
-is there excessive white smoke coming from the exhaust?

if the level is full and there is no leaks or white smoke, and the heater lines aren't very warm, then change the thermostat....but be careful when you fill the system back up with coolant. there is a bleeder valve on a black post on the water pump housing that needs to be opened to get the air out of the system. if your van has rear heat, which most do, the air will be harder to get out. a good trick that often works is to take the hose off of the bleeder tower and fill more coolant up there. also drive the van a about 5-10 miles and the check the coolant level. do this a few times until your heaters (front and rear) are throwing good heat.

be patient with the bleeding of these, it takes some time.
