I just put a bypass hose on my 91 Buick lasbre and turn on the heat and started seeing steam come out the vents and now its steam on my windshield


Sounds like you have a bad heater core or you have antifreeze leaking in the into the heater box. Maybe a loose clamp on the bypass hose or maybe you damaged the heater core tube when you installed or removed the bypass hose and now it is not sealing properly.

Truck doesn't heat while idling


Could be low on antifreeze. The heater core is the highest spot in the cooling system and it may develop an air pocket. Another possibility is the thermostat is stuck partially open and doesn't let the engine warm correctly, watch your temp gauge on the dash and see if it comes up to the middle like it should while idling. If it doesn't, it may need replacement.

1998 Ford Taurus, heater won't blow hot air through any vent including defrost, coolant level is okay, no heat no matter how long car is run, car doesn't overheat, can't get warm air even if run at air...


common problem is the water resivor cracks up at the bottom... it appears that your water level is fine because the car doesnt over heat but i am willing to bet that resivor doesnt have water to the top. The radiator will hold just enough water to keep it cool. I replaced mine 3 times the sulution is doing to sound weird but go to the junk yard and get one off a murcury sable. dont know why but the sables res doesnt crack like that

Is thermostat goin out?


The exact opposite should be happening...
Are you losing coolant? Perhaps the heater core is leaking when you run the heater and when you turn it off, the water returns to the engine via the heater bypass hose / valve.
Checvk under the firewall on th epassenger side (under the vehicle). Thre may be a puddle of coolant/antifreeze. If so, then the heater core is leaking. replace.

leaking heater core or hose that feeds it. look for hoses that pass thru the firewall to passenger compartment. Most times the hose is clamped to a pipe at the firewall so you may just need a hose

My air vent is blowing out some sort of gas/dust that leaves a green film on my windshield, it doesn't matter if the A/C is on or off. It also has a weird smell.


You have a leaking heater core. This can leak whether you are using the heater or not. Heater core replacement is pretty simple, except that in many cases you must remove the dashboard to gain access to the core. This can be a major undertaking.

What model year is your S-10?

Good Luck!
