Heater in 1995 Bronco is blowing cold air....What could be causing this?


If the heater is blowing cold air and the car is overheating, it is likely that the problem is related to the engine cooling system as well. The following are some issues that may be causing the heater to blow cold air:
  • Low coolant levels
  • A plugged/clogged heater core
  • A faulty thermostat (thermostat that is stuck)
  • Broken blower and/or blower motor
  • Heater core bypass hoses that have leaks
  • Heater core bypass hoses that are worn
If your car is overheating and/or your heater is not working, it should be inspected and diagnosed as soon as possible.

Saturn overheating


the stuff describe most likely from the anti boil -anti freeze mixture that has become ineffective for not being changed regularly and not up to percentage to do the job. It allows the aluminium parts of the car to corrode and what you see is the end result . It will deposit in the cores of the radiator and block them up resulting in a replacement radiator . You can expect corroded aluminium parts from all areas of the motor.

bad heater core won't cause engine to overheat unless its leaking coolant and coolant level low, if car is running hot make sure your radiator cooling fan is coming on, fan won;t come on unless a/c is on or engine reaches 228 degrees

Can i by pass the heater core


i`m guessing that you are talking about the heater core blew and you have coolant on the inside of your car.you can bypass the heater core by disconnecting the hoses that connect to the heater core and connecting a hose connector between the two hoses and your done.however if you need heat you won`t have it until the heater core is replaced.

I have a 1999 Kia Sportage. Was driving and water


Sounds like the heater core has a leak. When you get low on coolant, the temp gauge will start to fluctuate.

2000 kia sportage no heat


It may be that the thermostat is not the proper one needed to regulate heater temperature operation. Check the thermostat. It may be rated lower than necessary to allow for heating purposes. And if you dare, you might try (for winter purposes only) installing a thermostat of a higher rating so the coolant will need to run about 20 degrees hotter before opening and thus making the heater core a bit hotter to facilitate better heating, if you can locate a thermostat of the same size that is which will fit a Sportage housing.
It seems to be determined that the core is not plugged or else this would have been my first bit of advice for you to address. If youre determined to continue with your own retrofit core make sure the housing you install it is sealed to allow your fan or blower to pump this heated air into the vehicle and not outside into the engine compartment. I hope this might prove useful to your endeavor, good luck.
