Maybe a little bit since it is a bit more coolant to warm up, but check your thermostat it may not be closing as it should and would be a definite cause for slow warm up and might also cause it to cool off a lot when you are traveling fast in cold weather.

What is wrong when the ac and heater stops working but the blower still blows?

The AC and heater are completely different subsystems. The heater relies on heat generated by the engine and circulated by the engine coolant (radiator fluid) while the AC uses a belt driven compressor and separate fluids. Their only normal commonalities are the blower motor (which you said works), the ducting and the control head.

I have a leak under my f-150 pick and it's not a real fast leak but my defroster isn't working properly and I wanted to know if there was anything you could put in to seal the leak from my heater core?

If it is leaking under the truck it is not the heater core that is leaking. It would leak inside the vehicle on the passenger side. There is a drain tube for the A/C that is under the vehicle on the passenger side, and water from that with the A/C on is normal. If it is coolant, check the heater hose connections at the firewall. If you find that the heater core is actually leaking, replace it. No other repair is permanant.

How do you know when it is time to replace the hot water pump on a water heater?

There is normally not a pump on a water heater. The water is moved through normal water pressure. If you are having problems with getting hot water through, it may be that the pipes are corroding or pinched, slowing the flow. Or the hot water heater itself is leaking.

There is antifreeze all over the drive way is it the heater core?

It could be the water pump,radiator,or just a hose I don't think it's your heater core . Heater cores leave a mess inside the car on passenger side when they bust . Sounds like you have a torn hose , bad water pump , bad thermostat , or bad radiator ( different than a heater core ) . Radiator (keeps engine at normal temperature ) is in front of engine , heater core ( keeps inside of car warm when turned on through climate control ) is inside car . It's rare for a thermostat to go bad so look at all hoses and radiator with vehicle off. Now turn your car on and look for a leak in any of the hoses or radiator . Leave car on . Water pumps are designed with weep holes , about 5mm in diameter , located at the top , bottom , or both on some pumps . When the engine is running you should be able to see the pump leaking from one of this holes or in my case it was leaking from the holes and the center shaft that drives the internal blades . If the pump is leaking from any of these places , replace it and also replace thermostat , only about $5 and is worth doing if replacing water pump . To summarize this whole paragraph , check radiator in front of engine , radiator hoses , and water pump .

Why does your 1999 F 150 Ford truck v8 blow out partially warm air?

Could be a number of things starting with is the truck operating at normal temperature? If not may have a bad thermostat. Is the antifreeze level correct? Check it with engine at normal temperature running engine. If the overflow tank is empty, add enough to bring it to the hot engine line, recheck after a few minutes and add more if necessary. It's also possible that you have a plugged heater core, or a bad temperature control panel or heater resistor. Good luck .

Where is the heater control valve located on a 2000 Chrysler Concorde LXI 3.2?

need to replace heater control valve on Chrysler Concorde 2000 lxi. heart will not blow hot air. A Concorde does not have a heater control valve. The temperature is controlled with a blend air door. The first thing to check in a no heat situation is the coolant level. Next make sure the engine is reaching normal temp(at least 190deg F). Third you make sure both heater hoses are hot. If one is hot and the other cold the core is plugged. Then you will need someone with a scan tool to diagnose the blend door.

What is wrong with my 2001 Dodge Dakota when it needs water replaced weekly?

Could be one or more of several problems.- leaking radiator or hoses, leaking water pump, leaking thermostat gasket, leaking head or intake gasket, leaking or low over-flow reservoir, leaking heater core, radiator drain cock not tight enough, bad radiator cap. Drops or puddles of antifreeze under the vehicle or in the engine compartment or on the carpet under the dashboard (usually passenger side) can often indicate where to look for leaks. White smoke from exhaust sometimes indicates a blown head or intake gasket. In any event, the problem needs to be addressed. It is not normal and leaks of any kind will only get worse over time, potentially bad enough to cause harm to the engine.

What is causing leaking from passenger floorboard in a 97 jeep grand Cherokee?

If your talking about the leak you get after stopping the car. Then it is caused by your AC unit. This is completely Normal nothing to worry about. If the leak is on the inside then it is your heater core, lots of fun to replace (not). Hope This Helps. Anyone who has a 97 Grand Cherokee knows what kind of leaking the asker is talking about. It is not necessarily the heater core. It is a defect in this SUV. It is your drain that is supposed to run out under your car. It is now leaking into your floorboard. Try taking it and having the drain cleaned out.
