Question about Graco Spree 511 Holden Travel System Stroller
For some unknown reason my heater controls no longer work. The knob turns OK but the Temp doesn't change. The A/C is fine. The fan is fine. Just no heat. There are no warning lights or engine over heating. The Temp gauge goes from cold to normal when I first drive the car from cold starts. I've checked the cooling (radiator) water level in the container at the back near the fire wall and is OK.
Could this a common problem with 2.2 Vectra's ?
Could it be just blocked heater hose. ?
Is it electroniclly controlled.?
Help... I'm freezing in Melbourne's winter.
Not sure of this model, but I'll do what I can.
Put simply, there is no hot water reaching your heater matrix.
This may be bacause -
A - It's blocked (sometimes caused by sediment or radweld products)
B - There's an airlock in the system.
C - the valve controlling flow is not working.
Check for rusty gunk in radiator. If yes, remove hoses to heater matrix and flush with a hosepipe. Reconnect and fill with antifreeze mix.
Listen for any gurgling going on. Remove (small) heater hose when engine has just started (so not hot)
(!!! coolant will come out!!!) but should remove airlock. By remove I mean loosten clip and wiggle it untill you get a trickle of coolant out of the side - then tighten clip again. - Aim for around a cupfull of loss.
3 - check that the control from the dash is actually moving a cable to open a water valve somewhere. Plactic parts break unfortunately.
Hope this helps you get warm again !
