I have a 2005 Chevy Impala LS, 3400, the temperature gauge fluctuates passed 220 degrees and cools down. when turning on the heater in the car it blows cold air. I have replaced the thermostat, and the car continues to do the same thing, still when turning on the heater in the car, the heater still blows cold air. It has reached the 260 degree mark and the warning light has come on. What is it that I need to replace, to get this to stop? How can you tell if the water pump is bad, or the heater
Usually if the core goes bad it fogs things up and stinks bad' ... 2005 Chevrolet Impala
I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota 5.2/ V8 4X4 and was told the Firestone service Rep that my water pump and thermastat were defective. I could smell coolant both outside and inside the truck. Also when the heater and defoster are turned on it blows only cold air. I replaced the Thermastat, Water pump, Radiator, upper and lower water hoses. But, it is still blowing cold air even when the care rearches standard operating temperature. Could this be the Evaporator/Heater Core under the dash that now needs
Check the coolant flow control valve which should be located next to the heater core. It may be electrically or mechanically controlled. After you get the blend door and housing off and can access the heater core, bring your engine up to operating t ... 1998 Dodge Dakota

I've got a 96 Buick Regal Custom 3.8L V6. It's been running hot for a while. Yesterday the heater worked fine then last night it started blowing cold. I knew I had a cracked radiator, so I replaced the radiator, cap, thermostat (and seal), the temp sensor and flushed the lines. It's still running hot and the heater is still blowing cold and now the temp light and low coolant light come on too. There's no leakage inside the car or at the water pump or heater core. What could it be?
The one thing that comes too mind is trapped air-when i do a radiator I always start up and warm engine so thermostat cycles a few times to make sure that you dont trap air in colling system. you did not say so but if you didnt, its really not a bad ... 1996 Buick Regal Olympic Gold
We live in a cold climate. Our 1998 GMC Jimmy Heater will not provide cabin heat. The engine warms normally. We replaced the thermostat just to make sure the coolant was warm enough. The blower operates but blows cold air. The heater hose going to the heater core is warm but the return hose is cold. We wonder if the water pump may be defective.
Check to see if there is a valve on the inlet side of heater core if so and when everything is warmed up turn the heater on full hot and check to see if there is vacume at the valve if there is vacume the heater core may be pluged preventing cirqula ... 1998 GMC Jimmy

Hello, I have a problem with a heat, mechanic replaced thermostate, water pump, radiator, also blowed air out heater core. But problem still there. It gives me cold air, water gauge moves a little from cold toward hot, then drops down ( several times) then it goes to middle and I get hot air and again can drop to cold. Seems mechanic changed everything. Does anyone knows what might be causing this... Thank you

I have a 1999 Jeep cherokee sport 4.0L I have replaced the water pump, the thermostat and the radiator and I can not get this thing to blow heat some times if you sit there with your foot on the pedal while in park it will warm up other times it just stays cold.

Friends car(2001 pontiac grand prix) 3.8 v6.started running hot,so he replaced thermostat. didn't help. so replaced water pump. helped very little. heater hoses cold to touch and blows cold inside. worked fine before? heard something about air pockets. any truth to this?
Yes, but it's designed to drive the air out as long as you open the cap and run it until it's hot, keeping the radiator full. Eventually the air will come out and heater hoses should get coolant. ... 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix
Not getting coolant into heater core. constantly blows cold air. Water pump has been replaced. Wondering if heater control switch inside car is possibly related to why absolutely no coolant gets to heater core.
There is no heater control valve in the beelte, so the controls do not affect coolant flow to the heater. Are you saying the heater hoses do not get hot? My guess is that your blend door cable has come loose or slipped adjustment. Look under the d ... 2004 Volkswagen Beetle
I have a 1991 Ford F150 XLT 2 wheel drive with automatic transmission. I have replaced the water pump and just recently the thermostat. Since replacing the thermostat it seemed like the heat was inconsistent from one use to the next. One time plenty hot and the next time barely warm. Now it is only blowing cold air. The termperature guage on the truck shows the engine running at the right temperature. Before I replace the heater core, I was wondering if there is anything else I should try.

1999 dodge dakota blows cold air at idle but heat warms up when revved. would like a solution to this heater problem. I live in alaska and need the heat to function properly. already flushed the heater core and replaced water pump and a new thermostat. Thanks.
Sounds as if the engine is not building up temp due to cooling system working. If engine temp gage is reading low try covering 1/3 of radiator with a piece of cardboard "Bumper side" to reduce the cooling effect.. just watch temp and out side temps ... 1999 Dodge Dakota

I have a 2005 Monte Carlo. It started overheating so I put it in shop and they replaced the intake manifold gasket, water pump, radiator, thermostat, and radiator cap. The guy at the shop told me to watch it for a couple of days when I picked it up. I got less than a mile down the road and it overheated again. I brought it home and we bled it ourselves. The heater blows cold when it first starts after bleeding it for 20 minutes or so it blows hot but when you turn off the car and restart it
It might be a silly question but have you checked the radiators and the water channels in the block? They might be clogged with dirt and lime so the coolant won't pass thru them. ... Chevrolet Monte Carlo

I have a 01 ford escort zx2 and it is making a whining noise from under the hood i have replaced the water pump and it still whines and the heater will start off blowing hot air but when you go several miles down the road the heat is gone and cold air is blowing
Remove the serpentine belt and run the engine to see if the whine still exists. If the whine is gone, try moving the pullies by hand to feel what pully is rough or has a lot of play. Your issue with the heat is likely separate from the whine. You ... 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
