Why is my heat in my car not blowing hot?
The heater core looks (and works) similar to your car's radiator — it's made up of a series of narrow tubes and fins. ... Faulty heater cores and low or contaminated coolant levels often come hand in hand, and both issues may lead to your engine overheating and your heater not blowing hot air.
Why is the heat in my car only warm?
The lack of heater function could have 5 causes: the engine is not getting up to correct temperature (center of the gauge) due to a malfunctioning thermostat, the heater control valve is not letting enough hot coolant into the heater core, there is a restriction in the heater system that is preventing adequate hot ...
Why is the heating not working in my van?
A heater can stop working for a number of reasons, including: A low antifreeze/water level in the radiator due to a leak in the cooling system. A bad thermostat that isn't allowing the engine to properly warm up. A blower fan that isn't working properly.

The water pump spins faster as RPMs rise and slower as RPMs fall. So, when you're idling, the water pump is spinning slower than when you're going 30mph. Hence, coolant is going through the heater core slower.
What does it mean when your car heat blows cold air?
Hot coolant from the engine passes through a heater core, which looks and functions like a small radiator, and a blower motor forces air through it. ... It's also the reason that a plugged heater core, stuck thermostat, or air in the cooling system can cause a car's heater to blow cold.
Can a bad water pump cause no heat?
Yes, a bad water pump can cause no heat. This is because the water pump is what circulates the coolant through the engine and heater core. If it has failed, it is unable to pump the coolant properly, resulting in little to no coolant circulating through the vehicles heater core causing no heat.
Why isn't my AC or heat working in my car?

However, when your car is sitting still, the radiator fan should kick in, keeping the air moving over the radiator to help cool down the coolant.
