1997 ford ranchero outback heat gage not on hot but cuts out starter


Didn't find 97 ranchero in US automotive database. Is this a US vehicle? I looked for wiring diagram? I'd have to check starter motor wiring circuits and make sure engine isn't trying to seize when it gets hot or starter motor.

2001 Kia spectra thermostat. My heat went out and I am trying to trouble shoot the problem


Will Temp Gage Register any Temp? or is it just an Idiot Light?
If this is the case then You will need to run till it reaches Approximate Operating Temp, Generally 15 mins will get you there @ idle,Feel Hoses from Radiator, Are they HOT? then if you can reach Heater Hoses { usually 1/2 in/ 34 in hose } Are They HOT?, Are You getting Air out of the Vents? Is it Hot or Cold? Check AntiFreeze LVL's in Expansion Tank, Is it Full? or Empty? If Empty Fill With Recommended fluid Mixture

My 02 BMW is still registering hot. Took it to BMW


I would remove the water pump and inspect it.These cars have a problem with the impeller on the inside coming loose.

Other than that I would also do some teste to make sure you do not have a head gasket issue.

I have a 1993 Acura Ledgend. For some reason my heater does not continue to blow hot air, it does for a few minutes and then begain to blow cold air. It does this often now. It works and then it blows cold...


first check to see that you coolant level is full, check it after the engine has cooled down,so there is no pressure in the system. otherwise you possibly have a head gasket in the early stage of failure

My 1995 chevy van blows out cold air when i have the heat on


The hoses to the heater core may have been re-plumbed to by-pass the heater core (a temporary fix to a leaking heater core)...so verify that hoses are routed properly. If they are, check coolant fluid level....when it is gone...the heater will not blow hot, and you will likely burn up the engine (if coolant is gone...temp gage may not register "hot" because there is not fluid for the temp sensor to measure. Also...you may have a broken/cracked vacuum line (the valves for switching where the air gets directed are typically vacuum controlled) Hope this helps.

2000 chevy astro cargo van. the heat registers on the gage but little comes out and only out defrost. thermostat????


If it is blowing hot air out of the defroster and not out of the heater vents then the door that directs the heat from the defroster isn't working properly it is blocking the heat from going to the heater vents. Also check the cold air door. It sounds like it isn't closing all the way to shut off the cold air and not letting the hot air pass.

Water temp gauge stay on 160 degree


should be fine as long as the gage goes up and down and you get heat it should be fine make sure you consider the outside temp. as the engine starts it will heat up get really hot the the thermostate opens and the gage will fall and should but not always stay low it could just be the ip gage.
