No i think the coolant level is low thats all but ask a local mechanic to have a look as this sounds like it could also be the water pump ,they have a plastic impeller on a metal shaft and they tend to come loose on the shaft which can also cause the problem you have ,but check coolant level first when cold and fill to top dont worry about level marks or anything it will find its own level .

2004 vw passat w8 won't blow warm air until car is moving

Could try to change temperature sensor (due to MIL light), but it doesn't cause no heat in vehicle. Most likely caused by air-lock in heater hoses at heater core. Try bleeding hoses to eliminate air.

Heat is not blowing out when at a stop. Heat only comes out when car is actually moving. Could this be a tear in my hose?

Sounds like a classic blend door problem. They will start to break and exceed the sensor's travel limit, and then the controller will stop trying to move the door. There is also a known problem when the recirc door breaks, but it is less common. For more info, google "Jeep Blend Doors". For a fix, google "Heater Treater".

2001 Dodge Caravan heater blows cold air when stopped

Have you checked the coolant level? What you describe is exactly what happens if the coolant level is low. When stopped at idle, hot coolant is not circulating through the heater core, so no heat. As the engine increases in rpm's when you pull away from the light, the water pump is spinning quicker, and some coolant is making it to the heater core. So check the level, and if it is low, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine. Let me know how you make out with this.

Heater not working it is blowing cold air at all times is there a

Heater blowing cold air until I get on the interstate, then it works; however, when I stop at lights it starts blowing cold air again. The temperature gauge will be in the middle but the car will still be cold until the car starts moving.

Heating problem for bmw

It sounds like your thermostat is broken. The metal retaining tabs that hold the thermostat together can break over time. I would recommend pulling it out and checking it. When installing a thermostat there is an arrow on the edge. Make sure it points up. toward the top of the cylinder head.
