Having problems with your 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup ?

Sometimes my 2003 S10 blows cold air out of the heater. At those times, I notice one of the heater hoses is cool while the other is hot. Suggestions?

Answers :

Try backflushing the heater core - sometimes they plug up and will not allow the water to flow. You can go to an auto parts store and get a backflush kit which should include a backflush connector, clamps and an additive to put in your coolant system as well as directions to install connector. Pour additive into your radiator after you install the connector and use some vice grips to pinch off the heater hoses so you don't lose all of your coolant when you cut the hose to install the connector. Clamp off both hoses to prevent premature drainage and make sure you drain radiator and coolant system afterwards, adding the proper mix of antifreeze and water when you're done to prevent engine damage during a freeze.
Good luck!!
