YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR COILENT AND RADITOR SYSTEM YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE ANTIFREEZE ABOUT EVERY 5 YEARS OR SO YOU HAVE CLOGGED RADITOR AND HEATER COREGO GET SOME RADITATOR FLUSH PUT IT IN THE RADITATOR LET VEHICLE IDLE READ DERICTIONS ON CAN DRAIN ANTIFREEZE REFILL WITH WATER AND DO IT AGAIN THEN PUT NEW ANTIFREEZE IN USE A HOSE AND RUN LOTS OF WATER THROUGH SYSTEM IN EVERY DERICTION YOU CAN THIS MEANS THE HEATER CORE LINES TO GOOD LUCK PIER.J
try backflushing the heater core,remove heater coolant hoses and flush both ways with a garden hose,do you have a air compressor ,blow water back through heater core both ways,this asuming that all valves are working allowing coolant to flow and all air doors in car are opening,if so this fix has worked many times for me in older cars note works better to hook water hose to hoses or a short peice of hose on heater core,good luck
check for poor flow to heater core-change heater hoses -check for lime build up at intake connector or worn out water pump -if you only put water through core try using CLRlime cleaner in core-get two 6in pieces or heater hose hook them to core and pour it in and leave for 15 mins then wash out with water hose
there is probably air in the heater core,if you are fairly familiar with your car simply run the car 20 minutes with the radiator cap removed make sure to keep an eye on it a little spillage is normal do not remove the radiator cap when hot, turn the heat on high , be prepared to fill radiator with coolant as it will probably need some all if you are not familiar with your car have a certified tech perform this procedure for you
You have an air pocket trapped in the cooling system. This is pretty common on this vehicle due to the fact the heater core sits higher in the vehicle than the top of the radiator.
To correct this jack the front of the vehicle up or park it on an incline. Remove radiator cap then run it until hot,run rpm up to about 1500 and watch bubbles in radiator then top it back up with coolant until u see a steady flow thru radiator.
