It can a the first stage of blowing head gasket.

Fill your coolant tank to the full mark when it's COLD.

Start the car, and pay close attention to the tail pipe for a small puff of white smoke.

After 15 minutes,If you do see any vapor then take the car for a 8 minutes drive.

Park the car and listen for bubbling sound from the coolant tank,

If you see bubbles coming up then you will need a head gasket change real soon.

How do I fix the heat


You have one of two problems. The heater core is plugged /
restricted or there is an inoperative internal blend door motor problem. Start the vehicle and let it reach operating temperature. Feel the hoses under the hood that go into the heater core. They should be close to the same temperature. If one is hot and the other luke warm/cold.... the heater core is plugged/restricted. If both hoses are near the same temperature, suspect a defective/non operational blend door motor that controls heat/cold/airflow attached to the heater box assembly

Why would my heater blow out cool air when sitting still and then hot air when going down the road and then it's not all that hot


Try flushing or blowing high pressure air through the heater core lines. its sludge build up and need to be flushed through heater core only. check antifreeze fluid level. only put in straight antifreeze, do not mix. most people do not know what mixture should be, so be safe and add straight, it will not hurt it, i run 100% straight antifreeze and never had a problem or worry about it ever freezing and cracking my block, heads or radiator cracking.

Heater not working


your heater core is more than likely bad. simple things that cause this is not flushing your radiator fluid regularly. heater cores can be a pain to replace. most of the time they are under the passenger dashboard. you can try to flush out your coolant system really well, you might just have a clog in your system.

No heat, line going into heater core is hot line


Sounds like the heater core is plugged up. You could try disconnecting the hoses and flushing it out backwards with a garden hose.

No heat


CHECK THE HEATER CORE. MORE THAN LIKELY IT IS PLUGGED OR THE HEATER CONTROL VALVE IS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY. THE HEATER CONTROL VALVE CONTROLS THE WATER TO THE HEATER CORE. THUS NO FLOW, NO HEAT. GOOD LUCK.
