Likely to be paddle flap motor died, they used to be manual, so the vent is letting in cool air only, the flap changes position for the heat to enter, the flap on yours is not moving, so likely to be the motor

SOURCE: no heat in 2002 jaguar stype. replaced theromstat

the cooling fan running for a short time after turning off is far as the NO HEAT is concerned have the topmost hot hose clip undone and vent any airlock you may have.(pref a hose that is attached to the heater inside the engine bay).

Coolant is brown in color

You have a rust issue. Although I have seen summer coolant that is brownish. You need to flush the system, and put new coolant in.

I have a jaguar type x 2002 and its not properly heating any suggestions????? Also when i drive on the freeway the steering wheel starts to shake a lot

Balance the tire and wheel assemblies with a dynamic spin balancer. and check to make sure neither is bent and check rotors and pads to see if there is any heat indicators like bluing of the rotors, spalling or surface cracks, shiny spots on the pads. If there is, flush the brake lines with new fluid.

Lack of heating may be thermostat stuck partially open all of the time, thermostat controlled fans meay be running when they should not be- may be a fused relay contact or defective temp sensor. If engine reaches oeprating temp and no heat in cabin, check to make there is no air bubble caught in the heater hoses. If you do not have flushing tee on the upper heater hose, adding one will allow you to purge the air- start engine cold, and crack open the cap to let air out. Let engine aproach operating temp, hold upper hose as high as you can to collect the air, and crack cap open again until no bubbles appear, use care as the coolant is hot at that point. Only shut engien down once cap is tight again.

I actually have a 3.8 '98 lesabre... I blew a radiator hose a couple days ago so I flushed my coolant system yesterday, and replaced my thermostat. well when i finished i did a test start and i let it...

the rubber o ring you are talking about is the thermostat seal with out it you are likely to leak water as well as not being able to keep pressure inn the cooling system...with that seal there is no need for a gasket or far as over filling the system will puke out the extra through the resivior over flow tube...and the intake problem ..there may be a good chance it is not properly sealing and you should think about replacing be on the safe side

2000 Jaguar S type 3.0 Blows only cold air on full heat. Just replaced heater control valve with no change. Also flushed and replaced thermostat. Car operating temperaure is fine. Both heater hoses are...

Check the little pump below the brake booster for running and the coolant valve for movement.

Both hoses to fire wall should be hot.

Check for air lock in system.

Blend doors on this vehicle stop working....common complaint.

To verify Blend door movement, turn on ignition with engine off.

Run temp to max and the min..... listen under glove box for ( sliding ) motor noise as door swings from hot to cold.

This is a digital system needing a Jaguar scanner for diagnosis.

No heat, how do I tell what is causing this?

I would change the Thermostat first. Then if that didn't fix the problem. I would check to see if the coolant system is air bound. I do this by removing both Heater core hoses and running a garden hose in one of the hoses for a while. not only to flush the heater core but to get water in there. This happens at times.

The only way to clear up a clogged heater core, is ti have the coolant system flushed. Take you car to a reputable radiator shop. They will add a radiator cleaner to your heater core directly, and let it sit there for a while. Then the vehicle will need to be started and allow the thermostat to open. Once heated, they will flush out the entire coolant system, and replace it with new coolant. The cost will be approx. $100 - $200.......better than the $1500 to replace a heater core. A well maintained vehicle should have this procedure done every "5" years.

Luke warm heat in a 2002 expediton

Start with Flushing out your cooling system. Flush it out with Preston Radiator flush, you have your preference of ether the super flush which takes 3-6 hours or the 10 min flush which is good if you don't have the time to flush out your cooling system.

After you have flushed out your cooling system, replace your thermostat and you should be good for another cold winter driving. What happens is that after a few years of the coolant not being serviced, the coolant crystallizes and clogs up the heater core and radiator causing poor circulation. Poor circulation will cause poor heat and or overheating issues to the engine.

Before you go through all that inspect to make sure you have the right amount of coolant in your cooling system.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya

No heat in my 2002 madza mpv.

Two most common causes of your problem are low coolant ( air in the heater core) and a thermo stat stuck open. If you have a temperature gauge and it is reading on the low side. Like 140 Deg or less, you need a new engine thermostat. Feel the top of the radiator tank after the car has been driven. If it is too hot to touch, the thermostat is no the problem. As the system has been flushed and filled I suspect there is enough coolant. Last item on the list is the coolant valve for the heater core. Many cars have a water valve located in line with the supply pipe to the heater core. This valve may be in the engine compartment or under the dash. Check the heater temperature control and follow the cables. One cable most likly goes to this valve. Maybe a cable retaining clop has fallen off
