Hi there cristina bam! If the core was bad it may have been leaking. Many newer cars on the road these days have a sensor specifically made to monitor the coolant level. If the collant has leaked out there is a very probale chance that the sensor is preventing your Jeep from starting to prevent damage. Add enough fluid to the coolant system to fill the motor block and radiator. If it starts it was the fluid level, if not, there is a greater underlying issue at hand. I really hope that this helps you out and if i was of some assistance please rate my solution. Have a great day!

Chanches are it is probably the fan. Anything over 15 miles an hour the fan is no longer needed. I would get a cheap hydrometer and make sure your antifreeze is still good.

Your water heater core is beginning to leak. Eventually, you will find an antifreeze puddle on the passenger side floor which can eventually lead to the rupture of the heater core and a large amount of antifreeze in gaseous form within the cars interior.

It is time for a new heater core. Should you want to go the cheapest route, you can purchase a bottle of copper plugging agent. Ask your local car part guru what he has to plug a leak in the heater core.

Be forewarned: should you go this cheap route, you risk clogging your heater core for good and you will no longer have heat until you replace the heater core.

My heater stoped working while driving 2002 cerokee laredo blower works but no heat


Sounds like one of 3 things. It could be low on coolant/anitfreeze, could be the heater control valve not opening to let hot water into the heater core or it could be your heater core is stoped up.

I have a jeep grand cherokee laredo that the heat is not very hot, and the air that comes out of the vents is not the same throughout. how can i fix that?


Sounds like the heater core is dirty, take the fan motor out and reach inside the air vent, you can feel the heater core (scratch your finger nails on it), is there a bunch of debri on it, I found this to be a problem when there is a leaking heater core, (coolant leaks onto the core and dust and dirt attaches to it restricting air flow and reducing heat. Also you might want to flush the entire system and replace the coolant.
Please rate your mechanic.
