I have a vapor lock in the cooling system that I can't fix. I changed the thermistat because I was getting very little heat, that worked for a while, then April of 2010 I couldn't get any heat from the front or rear heater, it was like that all summer. The cooling system worked fine just no heat. In August I pulled the dash apart to check the controls and ducts and they worked fine. I wormed the engine to operating temperature and the heater core was cold, so I back flushed the system, and

My 94 chevy isnt puting out hardly any heat. The truck does not run at a 100 degrees like theese trucks are supposed to. It runs at about 70 degrees in the summer and about the same during the winter with cardboard infront of the grille. The fan is working and the hoses going to the heater core are warm. My intake manifold gasket is leaking so is the main problem? Is it something else? Please help cause up here in Canada winters arent warm and a properly working heater would be much appriated!


What this sound like is a problem with your thermostat. They can either get stuck while they are in the closed position or the open one, and it sounds like that is the issue if there is one there. Most of the newer cars (early 90's and up) run ... 1994 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

I have a 2004 Jeep grand cherokee overlander. In the winter the passenger side floor well gets a cold draft. This is not a situation where the heater is blowing cold ie: blend doors, the heater and A/C work fine. We know its a draft because it is most noticeable on the highway - city driving is fine but we can't do any winter travel because the passenger freezes their "foot" the cold blast blows directly onto the right foot. Reluctant to pull dash apart ($$$) to find problem.


I understand that you are saying that it is not the A/C problem. But this is a very very common problem with the 2004 Grand Cherokee. It is possible that it is not the door that operates the temp control on the passenger side. But if it is not, and t ... 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

How to reset the tire pressure monitor on my 2008 Honda Accord. We changed from summer tires and wheels to the original Honda wheels and winter tires. We did the work ourselves and now the TPMS light is on. I took it to where we bought our summer wheels and tires and they checked the tire pressures and they were fine but they told me the TPMS wasn't working and that if I had a flat tire, it wouldn't indicate that. Last time the light came on we took it into the Honda dealer and they ch

Bypassing isnt your answer. you need to flush your core. If it blows air while in heat mode but not hot air then the problem is your core. Flushing the core is not very hard. locate the rubber hoses running into the firewall to the core and loose ... Chrysler LHS

My car had starting problems especially in the summer and worked just fine in the winter. I then showed it to a mechanic to see what was the reason. He told me it was something to do with the computer but he used the ignition fluid and sprayed it near the air vent, after which it used to start. But since couple of days I am trying to start it but its not starting. It cranks but does not start. Can any one tell me what can be done?

My heater works fine so long as I am in gear and moving--if I am stopped at a red light, it only blows cold until I am moving again! This does not affect how hard it blows, only the temperature. This is my first winter with this car, and constantly turning the blower up/down is annoying, at best. What's the problem?
